An ozone generator is a device that creates ozone from oxygen atoms and that is capable of removing pollutants in the air and has an effect on some sources of odor inside a vehicle.
Why use an ozone generator?
When in a vehicle we detect a source of bad odor it is difficult to eliminate certain types of dirt, so the generator can help in eliminating the bad smell. Its advantage is that it works on its own. You configure it, turn it on and leave it for a certain time. The domestic ozone generator can eliminate the smell of air inside the car, but also achieves certain effects on certain sources of bad odor. This is very useful when the source of the bad smell is hidden behind a panel, or it is unattainable for other reasons.
What is an ozone generator?
An ozone generator is a device that draws air from one side and passes it through an area where electric shocks convert Co2 to O3. The device must be placed inside a room or vehicle, and turned on when there are no animals or people present. After an average of ninety minutes (depending on the level of smell and the size of the room), the ozonator turns off. Then you have to open the room or the vehicle to let the air full of ozone escape. After the gas has completely gone, it is safe to enter.
Ozone is especially effective in cleaning the air and eliminating odors caused by smoke. And it is safe, without leaving residues, because the gas does not remain for a long time, since it decomposes rapidly in diatomic oxygen. This ozonator treatment can also be used to disinfect tissues during the washing process and to eliminate bacteria and viruses.
Use an ozone generator in cars
Employing an ozone generator in a car is not too difficult. It is advisable to first clean the car in the usual way, removing any visible residue and even using a chemical product. Then you can vacuum the interior.
Make sure there are no people or animals inside the vehicle. Then place the ozone equipment inside the car or insert the hose to blow ozone into the passenger compartment through the window, to start purifying the air. If you use a hose from the outside, it is recommended to seal the open window to create an “airtight” seal. It is recommended to turn on the ozone generator from 30 minutes to 2 hours (the manual will help determine how long).
After you open all the doors to allow the gas to dissipate, there will be a peculiar smell that can linger on for a few days. Repeat the previous steps if the unpleasant odor that you want to eliminate remains inside. Wait at least 2 hours with all doors wide open before entering the vehicle. The aroma of ozone, as we said, can remain for a few days, but the smell we wanted to attack, will have been eliminated, thanks to this process of environmental disinfection by ozone.
