Three Reasons to Avoid Ozone Machines when Reconditioning a Vehicle
We’ve all heard claims from vendors who state that they can remove all kinds of odor, including smoke smells (think marijuana, cigarettes, or smoke damage) from vehicles with their “powerful ozone machines that work like no other product available.” However, such claims are dangerously misleading. Before you take such vendors’ words as truth, here are three reasons why you should never recondition a vehicle using an ozone machine:
- Ozone plus chemicals can produce a dangerous combination
Many of the chemicals that ozone machines interact with can form a variety of dangerous or irritating results. For example, a laboratory experiment that mixed ozone with chemicals from a new carpet produced aldehydes. This caused an increase in the organic chemicals in the air. In addition to aldehydes, ozone also increases indoor concentrations of formic acid, which can irritate the lungs and cause cancer. Exposure to ozone can make it harder for the body to fight respiratory diseases and can trigger asthma attacks.
- The level of ozone output is hard to predict
In research done by the EPA (https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq/ozone-generators-are-sold-air-cleaners), it has been found that it is very difficult to measure the actual concentration of ozone from such machines because of so many varying factors. Such factors include space, whether interior doors are open or closed, materials in the treated space that interact with the ozone, and how close the person doing the treatment is to the ozone output.
- Ozone machines don’t eliminate particles from the air
Manufacturers like to call ozone machines “air purifiers” or “energized oxygen” but the truth is that they cannot remove things such as dust and pollen from the air.
So, what is a safe and effective alternative that not only removes pollutants and odor but also works much faster than ozone machines?
