What is an Ozone Generator?

11/22/2020 (Permalink)

Ozone Generators

If you have ever had a fire on your property and had SERVPRO come out to restore, you will know what an ozone generator is. For those who have not, an ozone generator is a machine that charges the air around it creating O3 out of the O2 molecules we breathe.

What We Use Ozone For

The primary function that we use an ozone generator for is the eliminate odors, especially odors caused by fires. We can use this technique of odor removal in many different cases such as, clothing, furniture, and entire rooms no matter the size. While the odor removal works great, there is a downside to using ozone in excess.

Precautions to Ozone

As stated earlier, ozone is different from the air we breathe. This reaction makes O3 poisonous if it is ingested in excess. This is why we close off the area that is being deodorized during the process. You can trust that we take every precaution necessary to keep our customers and employees safe.

Labor Dayis a day to rest from the work place and enjoy some down time. A long standing tradition that many spend a lot of time planning and preparing for. Backyard barbecues and family gatherings , camping trips and vacations are frequently planned for this holiday! There are however many things that get overlooked in preparation for the time away on these trips that can cause the weekend to end badly. Preparing your residence might take a few extra steps but is always a good idea. Before you head out on your vacation, take a few minutes to safe guard your home. The following steps can help insure your return to be a pleasant one. Unplugging unnecessary appliances to prevent possible fires is top of the list. Fires spread rapidly and you will not be there to stop it. Unplugging appliances that can get hot or just simply short out should always be done before you leave. Turning off water is also a good idea. Shut off valves to sinks and showers can prevent water damage from pipes going bad and can save you a fortune! Leaving a light on such as a low wattage lamp visible to the outside can give the appearance of someone home is also a nice deterrent to possible problems. Whenever possible, ask a neighbor to keep an eye out for strangers possibly hanging around your property while you’re gone. These are all little steps but can make a huge difference in your return home.

We here at SERVPRO hope you have a safe and happy holiday!
