Musty Odor Removal – Treatment

Ozone kills mold and removes musty smell from homes, offices and basements.

img-musty.jpgThe OdorFree ozone generator is an excellent musty odor eliminator that kills mold and other microorganisms. Ozone goes directly to the source and will oxidize away the stale, unpleasant odors often found in damp areas, or those with little air circulation.

Mold and mildew thrive in damp environments. If the area smells musty, there's a good chance that live mold spores are in the air. Mold and mold spores can reproduce by the millions creating health issues, as well as damaging the building and its contents.

O3 is very effective in removing musty odors often caused by mold and mildew. The OdorFree will produce high ozone levels for shock treatment, which deteriorates the cell structure of microorganisms, eliminating their ability to reproduce. As the entire space fills 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.

+How to Treat Musty Odors+

Solution: To remove musty smells, close off the area to be treated and place an OdorFree unit in the space, then vacate the area.The treatment time depends on the size of the space and how deeply entrenched the odors. It can take less than an hour for small spaces with light odors but several hours or longer to remove heavy musty 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 and remove any musty 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.

The Autel 1000 is able to eliminate musty odors in spaces up to 1,000 square feet, however, this unit only has a 60-Minute Timer.
