Ozone is often referred to as nature's sanitizer. It is noticeable at the seashore, in tropical forests and after thunderstorms. We are all aware of the safety the ozone layer provides. Ozone, also referred to as triatomic oxygen, occurs naturally in our environment either through electricity, photosynthesis or by the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. It makes up 20% of the air we breathe. Ozone is considered as the world’s second strongest oxidizer. Shortly after ozone is produced it begins to decompose. It will discard one oxygen atom, which will reunite with either other oxygen atom, reverting to simple Oxygen (O2), or it will connect with another compounds altering their composition. This is the process that disbands VOCs that create odors and eradicates viruses, bacteria, fungus, and protozoa.
VirusZAP sanitizing service requires a minimum of three and a half hours of application. During the treatment, people, pets, and plants must not be present. Generators are set up to produce ozone and fans are placed to distribute it evenly throughout the premises. A two-to-three-hour interval after ozone generation must pass before the sanitized property can be re-occupied.
Weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly sanitizing service contracts are available at down to earth pricing.
The antimicrobial effects of ozone have been documented for over a century. Its neutralizing action upon bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa serves as the foundation for its increasing application in disinfecting water supplies in municipal water treatment plants worldwide.
Viruses are independent particles, small, built of macromolecules and crystals. Contrary to bacteria, they reproduce only within the host cell. Ozone eradicates viruses by penetrating the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, so damaging the viral RNA. At high concentrations, ozone annihilates the exterior protein shell by oxidation. Viruses have no defence against oxidation.
Chlorine today is still the method of choice over ozone for water disinfection. Nonetheless, the last two decades the implementation of ozone did start to increase. In 1973, trihalomethanes (TMH) were discovered as a harmful disinfection by-products of chlorine disinfection and therefore scientists started looking for alternative disinfectants.
Another issue was a rise in disturbing, hard to remove organic micropollutants in surface waters. These substances seemed to be oxidized by ozone more rapidly than by chlorine compounds.
Additionally, ozone deactivated even the microorganisms that developed resistance to disinfectants, such as Cryptosporidium.
