Ozone Generator?????

I have heard of using an ozone generator for making small cars and houses smell good again, they can also be used to kill mold and fungus. I was thinking this would be good in cleaning up an old Boler, after any mold has been removed of course.

Has anyone used these? What did you think?

Concrobium in a fogger might work better.

I used a service when my car was flooded, and it worked great - no more mildew smell.

This stuff works:
Kanberra Gel All Natural Air Purifer - Dog Beds, Gates, Crates, Collars, Toys, Dog Clothing & Gifts

To much Ozone is harmful. Look up the California requirements for Ozone.

Thanks. I see Homedepot has a fogger to rent cheap, I will give it a try. The gel looks like a great maintance solution.

As for the safety of Ozone, it would be run when no one is present, just to kill anything that might be growing anywhere. Then vented before entering.

I have never heard of using Ozone generators to kill mold in a residential setting. Do you have any references or links to information?

I'd opt to believe the negative reports before sales pitches like this one:
Mold Odor Removal | Kill Mold | Ozone Generator | OdorFree

But isn't it interesting what 1 molecule does to oxygen?

O2 = Oxygen
O3 = Ozone that can kill you

H2O = Water
H2O2 = Hydrogen peroxide which can be used as the oxidizer in rocket fuel

Yep, CO2 is very important for a quick chill on 2 cans of beer (LOL)

We have an ozinator...........
we use it all the time.

You run it while no one is present
then you have to air the rooms out
before entering.............

It's the larger one, but I have used
it in the car.

Edit:
I only use this in a 3600 sq foot empty
building I have. Not in the house.

I am sure that ozone generators will reduce or even eliminate unwanted odors.
The question I was raising was if it can actually "Kill" mold. it's doesn't sound that it can.

The service I used specified that all visible mold needed to be cleaned before the ozone treatment. It seems to eliminate mildew smell, and maybe the mildew spores, themselves, since the smell hasn't come back. They also said to keep the car closed for a while, and to open the windows and let it air out before driving it. The car smells new, now.

I am in the property restoration field and I would advise staying away from ozone unless you know what you are doing, there are safer ways to go. A couple of effective products that I would recommend :
- Benefect
- Concrobium
- Vaportek
Keep in mind mould only grows on cellulose material (like wood or paper) not plastic or fiberglass. And mildew is a white powdery plant disease, not something you get in your bathroom...I laugh when I see bathroom products for mould and mildew.... sorry I digress...
Like I recommend to homeowners that are looking to remediate mould on their own "don't bother to go through the hassle of cleaning this unless you have first fixed the source of the water leak".
If that is done, then clean it and disinfect. I would use regular Benefect or Benefect Decon 30 botanical disinfectant.
