Yes, You CAN Kill Bacteria With Ozone

Venture down the supermarket’s cleaning supplies aisle, and you see countless products that promise to kill bacteria. Yet as the Smithsonian points out, many of the sprays, soaps and gels use triclosan to do the dirty work, which could potential function as an endocrine disruptor. If this indeed bears out, effects in the human body could range from infertility to cancer.

Ozone Can Kill Bacteria Without Using Triclosan

To say that ozone is a highly effective germ killer would be an understatement.

  • No chemicals. Put away the gels, bleach products and harsh chemicals that adversely affect your skin. Ozone offers a natural, non-chemical cleaning process.
  • No scents. Cleaning product manufacturers like to use lemon and flower scents in their products, which are designed to overpower the smells created by bacteria. For those sensitive to the artificial smells, these products are useless. Ozone does not generate any smell except that of fresh air, which you might associate with the air you breathe in after a rainstorm.
  • No pollution. Ozone works by oxidizing bacteria where they are located. It does not matter whether they hide in your drapes, the walls, the carpeting or on your flat surfaces. An ozone molecule features a third oxygen atom, which bacteria absorb through their cell walls. In so doing, the bacterium is destroyed from within. In the meantime, the loss of the third oxygen atom turns ozone into oxygen.

Choose the Right Equipment

Exposing the bacteria in your home or office to the right level of ozone is instrumental in their successful eradication. It does not make sense to treat a large space with an ozone generator that is only rated for the treatment of average-sized hotel rooms.
