What Is Ozone?
And why does SERVPRO of Greenwich use it?
If you are like most people, you have heard of ozone when it is mentioned in conversations about global warming and climate change. The ozone layer around the planet absorbs most of the UV rays that the sun emits. But it has other uses closer to home, and SERVPRO of Greenwich utilizes it in some fire damage restorations.
After a fire, there will always be smoke and soot smells that are just as much a part of the overall damage, beyond any structural damage the flames have caused. We need to get rid of these smells to successfully remediate fire damage. Ozone is naturally produced in the environment, and naturally works to eliminate odors outdoors. With three oxygen atoms in each molecule, rather than the two oxygen atoms in the air we breathe, ozone is unstable, so the extra oxygen atom can detach and grab onto odor polluting molecules to change their molecular composition.
So SERVPRO uses it to eliminate odors indoors, where ozone levels are much lower than outside. We use machines that emit ozone that works just like it does in nature. It seeks out odor-causing molecules and eliminates them.
We have the skilled technicians and specialized equipment needed for your commercial or residential odor elimination needs. That’s why SERVPRO of Greenwich should be your first call. Contact us at 203.324.1642 for assistance.
