These are the best choice for mold remediation contractors, water and fire clean-up crews, and equipment rental retailers.
When mold and mildew gets really severe in a building, the only recourse is to have the mold-laden material removed and hauled away. Our machines can be a huge help prior to, during, and after the reconstruction. They can be used in the building to reduce airborne mold spores as well as the mold attached to the surface of material. These spores can enter the lungs and sinuses creating major health problems.
Running this machine over night, prior to the remediation, allows residents to temporarily occupy the building to work or remove furniture and personal belongings while the airborne mold is at reduced levels. Once all of the debris is removed, it can help make the air safer for workers to occupy the building, and as the last step in the clean up process to help insure the building passes final air quality inspection.
Fire restorers will sometimes put large items like upholstered furniture in a tent and treat them with our PRO-8 ozone generator. Its high output shortens the time needed, and insures that the ozone penetrates deeply into the fabric. If the furniture can be salvaged, it means huge savings to the homeowner, and the price of the treatment is well worth it.
Ozone (O3) is a colorless gas with a distinct pungent odor. It is a molecule made up of 3 atoms of oxygen. Interestingly, ozone occurs quite readily in nature, in the upper atmosphere protecting us from harmful UV rays, at the beach, in the forest, or near waterfalls. In fact, the odor of fresh spring rain following a thunderstorm comes from nature’s creation of ozone. Since ozone is the second most powerful disinfectant, 3000 times that of chlorine; it can easily destroy bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, and odors.
For continuous operation, turn the timer knob counter clockwise to the Hold position. For timed operation, turn the dial clockwise to select up to 12 hours of run time. Turn on the power with the large brown knob and adjust the output. At the end of the elapsed time, the ozone will shut off but the fan will remain running to help the ozone dissipate and turn back into oxygen. The fan will stop when the power is turned off. If stubborn odors persist, repeat the process.
Since ozone is the second most powerful sterilant in existence, it can easily destroy bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, and odors.
Due to its high output, do not use these models in areas occupied by people or animals.
The PRO-8, PRO-16, or PRO-24 is also an ideal choice for treating mildew in damp crawl spaces.
Two input filters are supplied with every unit. The ceramic plates inside the ozone generator should be cleaned with soap and water whenever there is a noticeable drop in ozone output. The housing is made completely from stainless steel for maximum durability.
