How Does Ozone Work?
The third oxygen atom of ozone is extremely reactive because it is unstable. This atom readily attaches itself to other odor molecules. When contaminants such as odors, bacteria or viruses make contact with ozone, their chemical structure is changed to less odorous compounds. Ozone not only destroys bacteria cells, but it does it without leaving a residual affect.
Ozone not only destroys bacteria cells, but it does it without leaving a residual effect. Ozone does this via Oxidative Burst; a process even our own bodies use to protect itself! See the effects ozone has on bacteria in the 6 steps below.
