Everyone loves their car, especially while it still has that new-car smell. Once that wears off, all sorts of other odors develop. Tobacco smoke, spilled food, gasoline smells, smog and mildew from the air conditioning system, non fresh used area air. These odors all contribute to a “not-pleasant” and “not-so-healthy” automotive environment. You get into the car day after day and are so used to the odors that you don’t even notice them anymore.You get used to the odors – but other people still smell the stink!
You want your car to look and smell its best at all times so you really only have three options:
- Never eat, drink, or smoke in your car.
- To have your car detailed by a professional over and over.
- Remove the odors by ozone!
Cars owned by smokers and pet owners are impossible to resell until those odors have are gone. You might want to consider this when it is time to trade in your automobile. A good ozone treatment could significantly increase your trade in value you get for your car or truck.
Basically, ozone removes odor by destroying the molecules, bacteria, and spores that cause unpleasant smells. Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive molecule and is very quick to chemically react with particles that it comes into contact with in the air and on surfaces. The extra oxygen atom in the ozone attaches itself to other molecules, chemically changing their structure to create non-offensive molecules – eliminating the smell.
When considering bacteria and spores the same process applies, with ozone attacking the outer shell of the cell causing it to break down. When the outer shell degrades, the cell itself breaks apart and dies.
With this in mind, it makes sense that a situation with stronger odor (and more odor-causing molecules or particles) requires more ozone to remove the smell – there needs to be enough ozone to react with all of the offensive molecules it encounters. This requires either;
A) A longer ozone treatment or
B) Higher concentrations of ozone (a larger ozone generator).
