Ozone Treatment for Deodorization

Ozone Treatment for Deodorization

SERVPRO of East Clackamas, Hood River and Wasco Counties successfully deodorized this structure using our Commercial Grade Ozone Generators.

The Ozone generator is place in a elevated location due to Ozone being a gas that is heavier than air. Air movers are often used in conjunction to thoroughly circulate the Ozone throughout a structure. 

How Ozone Breaks Down Odor

Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive molecule and is very quick to chemically react with particles that it comes into contact with in the air and on surfaces.  The extra oxygen atom in the ozone attaches itself to other molecules, chemically changing their structure to create non-offensive molecules – eliminating the smell.
