Ozone Generators for Permanent Chemical Odor Removal Without Fragrances or Residues.

Chemical odors arrive indoors from a wide variety of sources including new furniture, building materials, new carpet and flooring , cleaning chemicals, air fresheners, carpet cleaners and fresh paint. It normally takes time for chemicals to release, or 'off-gas', from materials or substances. Even after a varnish has dried or solidified, it may still be off-gassing for days, weeks, or months.

Ozone helps to speed up this off-gassing process, but it still may take time, especially odors that are deeply embedded, or a part of the materials. However, with lighter odors on the surface of materials, ozone may be able to eliminate them fairly easily.

Caution: Ozone often breaks down chemicals into other compounds that can also be harmful. Extra care must be taken to fully ventilate the area after treatment by opening windows and doors or using fans to vacate the chemicals.

Just Painted? It's important to wait several days after painting to use an ozone generator. The chemicals released by the drying paint will be so heavy in the air that they will have a negative effect on the ozone output. These airborne chemicals will come through the machines and adhere to the ceramic plates. So, it is important to wait several days after painting before using an ozone generator. 

Just Shampooed the Carpet? The carpet should be completely dry before running the ozone generator. Heavy chemicals found in carpet cleaners can adhere to the ceramic plates and inhibit their performance. 

+How to Treat Chemical Odors+

Solution: To eliminate chemical odors, close off the area to be treated and place an OdorFree unit in the area and set the timer. Then vacate the area and run the ozone generator for several hours or longer depending on the severity of the odors. (If chemicals have only been used for a few days in the space, for example, it may take less than an hour. If tobacco has been used for years, it may take two or three days.) Allow the O3 to dissipate for at least an hour prior to re-occupying space. If the chemical odor has not been completely eliminated, repeat the ozone treatment again.

Note: The fan on the thermostat for the air conditioner may be turned to the ON setting to circulate the O3 and remove cigarette odor that has built up inside the ductwork and the air conditioner unit itself. For long term treatment it is recommended that one window be kept open about 2 inches to provide a constant source of oxygen for ozone creation.

For Autos, Hotels, and Small Spaces
with Short Treatment Times

Built-in 1 to 60-Minute Timer|Continuous Hold Setting
Up to 1,000 Square Feet|Adjustable Ozone Output

The Autel 1000 is able to eliminate chemical odors in spaces up to 1,000 square feet, however, this unit only has a 60-Minute Timer. Most spaces require longer treatment times, so an OdorFree model with a 12-Hour Timer is more convenient. This model has a variable ozone output control and a 60-Minute Timer that automatically turns the machine off when the treatment is completed. For deeply entrenched odors, there is also a “Hold” setting for treatment longer than 60 minutes until the machine is turned off manually. Complete with plates and filter for long-term use.

Note: An OdorFree model designed for larger spaces will always reduce the treatment time, especially for stronger odors. Also, odors can migrate through the ductwork and the entire facility may need to be treated at one time.
