Ozone Odor Destruction

The image below demonstrates how ozone destroys odors by oxidation. Ozone reacts with the odor causing the substance to change its composition so it no longer has the same odor. A new molecule is formed but this new molecule is typically less odorous than the original one.

Odor destruction is one of the most common uses for ozone in the market today. Millions of people enjoy odor free homes and apartments due to the safe use of ozone!

More Odor = More O3 Required

When ozone reacts with the odor causing molecule, the odor is destroyed, but so is the ozone molecule. Stronger odors mean more odor causing molecules are present - therefore more ozone is also needed.

Ozone Readily Destroys the Following Odors:

  • Smoke odor
  • Pet odor
  • Urine odor
  • Cooking odors (including Indian food / curry smells)
  • Musty odors
  • Skunk odors -- Yes, ozone is powerful enough to destroy skunk odor!

Ozone does not mask odors - It destroys them!
