Running the Odorfree ozone generator for several hours will kill mold and mildew and remove mold smells.
Shock treatment remediation is required to remove mold odor because mold and mildew thrive in damp environments and those areas with poor air circulation. If the area smells musty, there's a good chance that live mold spores are in the air. These spores can reproduce by the millions creating health issues, as well as damaging the building and its contents.
O3 is very effective in attacking mold, mildew and mold spores. At high levels, O3 deteriorates the cell structure of these microorganisms and breaks down their ability to reproduce. As the OdorFree fills the entire space with ozone, every interior surface including floors, ceilings, closets, furniture and clothing gets sanitized. While ozone is not able to pass through solid walls, it goes where normal air can go, even down into cracks and crevices.
Solution: To remove musty smells, close off the area to be treated, place an OdorFree unit in the space, set the timer and vacate the area.The treatment time depends on the size of the space and how deeply entrenched the mold and odors. It can take several hours or longer to remove heavy mold smells and kill mold and mildew. After treatment allow the O3 to dissipate for at least an hour prior to re-occupying space. In the event that the source of the moisture has not been completely eliminated, treatment may need to be repeated periodically to prevent return.
Note: The fan on the thermostat for the air conditioner may be turned to the ON setting to circulate the O3, kill mold and remove mold smell that has built up inside the ductwork. For long term treatment it is recommended that one window be kept open about 2 inches to provide a constant source of oxygen to the unit for ozone creation.
