Ozone Beats Bacteria

Now, perhaps more than even people have become extremely health-cautious. The looming threats of influenza, illness and incubation have made our world come to a standstill in more ways than one. From global and domestic travel, to simply going to the grocery store, protective restrictions and health requirements have entered our lives, whether we like it or not.

As difficult of a task as it is to combat a global pandemic, it is a shared responsibility from all of us to health-conscious at all times, whether we are in our own homes or out and about.

One of the best methods for proactive-healthcare is by cleaning and disinfecting the air and surfaces in spaces with high volumes of human traffic. These spaces could be in a house, apartment, office, school, store, bus, car, anywhere and everywhere we spend extended periods of time. And one of the best tools for disinfecting at home and on the go is ozone.

Ozone is a molecular compound made up of three atoms of oxygen fused together. The oxygen we breathe is made up of two oxygen atoms, expressed scientifically as O2. The oxygen in the air must be broken apart to produce ozone, which is commonly done with the help of an electric current such as lightning, or with UV rays. Once broken apart, the oxygen atoms will then sporadically regroup and build ozone, which is represented by the symbol O3. Ozone (O3) is an unstable molecule because oxygen atoms prefer to produce basic oxygen (O2).

Because ozone is unstable, it clings to other molecules in its vicinity, including bacteria, viruses, fungus, smoke, dust, and other contaminants. This makes it great for disinfecting and protection against unpleasant odours, common colds, the flu during flu season, and other dangerous airborne infections. There is also no evidence that viruses, bacteria, or fungus may develop resistance to ozone disinfection, implying that it will continue to function and clean efficiently for days, weeks, or years to come.

Ozone is one of the most powerful natural disinfectants known, capable of disinfecting air, water, and other solid surfaces. Despite being a powerful disinfectant, ozone is one of the safest disinfectants available for routine usage. According to some reports and studies, ozone is found to be up to 50 times more powerful than chlorine bleach. Even while ozone is up to 50 times more effective than conventional cleaning agents, it does so without the hazardous consequences and residues that come with them, such as the cancer-causing residue left behind by chlorine bleach treatments.

With applications from kitchens, washrooms, bedrooms to on-the-go, ozone is an extremely versatile disinfectant. Ozone is suitable since it is generally safe to use and has excellent oxidation and disinfection capabilities that may be used in a variety of applications. Being a potent oxidant, ozone able to breakdown a wide range of bacteria, viruses, and other ailments in these sensitive areas more safely than other conventional cleaners.

Ozone has been shown to transform toxic organic molecules to safer biodegradable materials in the treatment of drinkable water. As a result, combining ozone with other biological treatments can produce water with lower levels of hazardous organic compounds while also being more cost-effective than any other single-use chemical cleaning techniques in the long term.

Ozone disinfection is especially useful for residents in large cities and urban areas where there are numerous factories, heavy traffic, and other high-pollution areas. Ozone air purifiers are a must for these types of everyday pollutants that strive in these types of environments. Ozone purifiers are recommended for industrial areas to get rid of any offensive airborne chemical smells. They can be easily installed to remove various odors that are common in homes, offices, manufacturing areas, laboratories and other various high traffic areas where people spend a lot of their time occupying. Ozone air purifiers are also great for smoking zones to reduce smokescreens, tobacco smells, and other long-lasting odors.

While the basic health guidelines of general hand-washing, hygiene, tidiness, and social distancing are some of the best way to prevent illness caused by bacteria or viruses, there are ways to protect your self and your family even more, with the help of ozone. 

Cleansing the air with the help of ozone-producing air purifiers can prevent air-borne contaminates from being inhaled or resting on commonly used surfaces.

Cleansing surfaces with the help of ozone-producing sprays and diffusers can eliminate bacteria and viruses clinging onto everyday objects.

Cleansing water with ozone-assisted filters can kill illness-causing microbes hiding in the water we drink.

Cleansing the food in our fridges to limit and prevent the spread of bacteria from spoiling fruits and vegetables, keeping them fresh longer.

Cleansing and controlling the odors produced from our trash bins to block the smells and spores from spreading to other areas of our homes. Ozone has the ability to be utilized in many aspects of our lives, at our homes, and while we are out, making our world a cleaner, healthier and safer place
