Indoors are where people live their daily lives, and are most directly related to people’s health. People’s metabolism, interior decoration of the room, and entry and exit of all kinds of pollutants will bring various pollutants. Every day, we are attacked by all kinds of chemicals, smells and bacteria around us. Ozone can be used to effectively reduce the impact of these pollution on human health.
Ozone is naturally formed in nature by strong ultraviolet (UV) from the sun and lightning. After a thunderstorm, the air will feel fresh, which is the role of ozone to purify the air. Ozone is actually an oxygen molecule formed by the combination of multiple additional oxygen atoms. Its chemical symbol is (O3). Once ozone oxidizes pollutants or organic matter, it loses an oxygen atom and becomes oxygen (O2).
Ozone has a very strong oxidizing property, which can quickly kill almost all kinds of bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi, protozoa, and oocysts in a short time. The disinfection efficiency is 300-600 times that of chlorine and 3000 times that of ultraviolet rays. For the odor in nature, the main components are ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide, etc. Ozone can decompose it into non-toxic and odorless substances. For organic volatiles, such as formaldehyde, benzene, etc., ozone also has a certain purification effect. Therefore, ozone is widely used for disinfection of water, air, and surface of objects, and for environmental deodorization and odor removal.
So we can use ozone to purify the indoor air. However, when ozone is used for disinfection and deodorization, the concentration is relatively high, and both humans and animals need to leave. After the ozone generator is turned off for 20 to 30 minutes, there is basically no residual ozone.
