Active Oxygen ( commonly called Ozone) is a marvel of Nature. In the upper atmosphere Ozone protects our planet from harmful ultraviolet radiation. Closer to Earth, Ozone purifies and sanitizes the air we breathe, the water we drink, and food we eat. Long used in medical therapies, Ozone has shown remarkable antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal activity.
As a gas it is highly mobile and can dilute into the air, flow over surfaces and seep into fabrics and crevices. Ozone, is a unique molecule that seeks out and destroys the organic molecules that form much of the indoor pollutants. Whether the pollutants are from biological or chemical sources, Ozone rapidly oxidizes them by first reverting itself to O2 (oxygen) and then depositing the third Oxygen atom on the offending pollutant. This process very effectively deodorizes, disinfects, and destroys many of the pathogens and fumes that poison the indoor air.
Ozone (O3) is an unstable form of Oxygen (O2) and has a total of three atoms, unlike stable Oxygen that has only two atoms.
In Nature, Ozone is formed by the sun's ultraviolet rays and the high energy electrical discharges that happen during lightning storms.
Ozone can also be reproduced scientifically in safe, controlled quantities.
Ozone continuously applied in slightly elevated concentrations is an extremely effective, safe, and economical method of reducing common household bacteria, fungi, molds, mildew, and viruses on surfaces in our rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and in the air we breathe. By oxidizing the byproducts of decay, Ozone rapidly eliminates the allergens from dust mites and other arthropods. Ozone can also eliminate harmful chemical gases that are emitted from plywood, carpet, glue, paint, many indoor cleaners, etc.. Ozone's powerful oxidizing action quickly reduces trapped chemical residues to harmless byproducts.
