Shock Ozone Generators - Product Overview
The Best Ozone Generators to Purify and Deodorize

Ozone generators are great tools for removing odors and sanitizing spaces. However, buying the best ozone generator can be a real challenge with so many products that look similar but are vastly different in performance and quality. BoiE manufactures unique and versatile ozone generators in the U.S. using only top-quality materials. BoiE ozone generators are never mass-produced overseas or sold with outdated technology. A BoiE ozone generator can help solve odor or mold-related problems that adversely affect the air quality in homes, vehicles, businesses and more.

Why Air Purifiers Won't Solve Odor Problems

Air purifiers are advertised as a cure-all for everything from allergies to sick building syndrome. What air purifier manufacturers won't tell you is that while effective at trapping particles such as dust and allergens near the device, even the most advanced air purifiers have no effect on volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold, bacteria and viruses elsewhere in the home or on surfaces, carpets and upholstery where odors originate. This is because unlike ozone generators, air purifiers are passive devices that can only act on the unit's air flow, and much of the contamination that causes odors or sickness is either not airborne, passes directly through the unit or never reaches the air purifier.

On the other hand, ozone spreads and saturates a space including fabric and carpets, destroying VOCs and biological contaminants.¹ This is because in chemistry, ozone is classified as a scavenger molecule, a search-and-destroy substance that removes or de-activates impurities and unwanted reaction products. This allows ozone to have wide-reaching cleaning applications. In laboratory experiments conducted by Kowalski et al, an ozone generator removed 99.99% of bacteria within 40-60 seconds of exposure to air ozonation.² For serious odor elimination or disinfection of a large area in a short period of time, ozone generators far surpass air purifiers in effectiveness.

Practical Uses for an Ozone Generator

Shock ozone generators oxidize the air to remove strong odors from chemicals, mold, smoke and decay. The oxidation breaks down and removes the contamination rather than masking the odor. Unlike chemicals that leave a residue, an ozone generator leaves nothing behind. Environments that are treatable with ozone include homes, basements, crawl spaces, hotel rooms, apartments, offices, gyms, sports equipment, fitness centers, locker rooms, vehicles, boats and much more. Ozone generators can deodorize individual items by simply enclosing or tenting them in plastic, then running the ozone generator to the enclosure.

BoiE ozone generators are essential tools for flood and fire restoration, mold remediation, crime scene clean up, sanitizing trash dumpster rooms, and to sterilize bacteria, viruses and mold spores at sensitive places including daycare centers, schools and medical centers. Ozone can also be used to clean and disinfect odors from clothing and foot wear, a process called ozone dry washing. Hunters use ozone generators outdoors to alter their scent in order to stay hidden from wildlife. Water ozonators sanitize and purify drinking water in minutes. For examples of ozone generators that treat a variety of situations, read BoiE's ozone generator treatment guide on this website. You can buy the best ozone generator for every type of use from BoiE.

Low Power vs. High Power Ozone Generators

Advertisers often market low ozone-producing air purifiers as powerful ozone generators. However, these devices generate roughly 0.05 parts per million (ppm) of ozone, which is too little ozone to reduce contaminants. Rather they mask odors temporarily with ozone's pungent scent. In EPA laboratory tests, up to 10 ppm of ozone was needed to kill mold, bacteria and viruses,³ an amount 200 times higher. Few ozone generators will ever reach the level of ozone needed to perform useful cleaning and disinfection. You need a BoiE shock ozone generator for that.

Ozone generators that produce high levels of concentrated ozone can effectively oxidize VOCs, mold and other contaminants in unoccupied areas. That is why professional restoration service companies use ozone generators to reduce mold levels and bacteria during mold remediation and water clean-up projects. Most commercial fruit and vegetable crops are cleaned and disinfected of bacteria using ozone because it is the most effective method of killing germs on surfaces. The FDA approved ozone for food use in 2001. While ozone generators are highly-effective at disinfecting and deodorizing, beware of devices that produce a small or unspecified amount of ozone as they don't compare to BoiE ozone generators.

Can an Ozone Generator Sanitize and Kill Mold

A shock ozone generator can kill mold and remove mold odors from surfaces. However, it takes approximately 1,000 milligrams of ozone per hour (mg/hr) to kill surface mold and mildew along with airborne mold spores in a typical 100 sq. ft. room. Since the ozone starts to dissipate in minutes, ozone will not concentrate enough to kill mold in a space that is too large for the ozone generator's output, no matter how long that machine runs. That is why it is important to understand ozone generator output before buying one. When you look at an ozone generator, the first question should be how many milligrams of ozone does it generate per hour, and is that enough output for the largest space you may need to treat? The greater the ozone output, the less time the ozone generator will need to run to complete an effective ozone treatment.

Low-power ozone generators may leave a temporary ozone scent in a large space, but they won't kill mold and musty odors will return within hours. Some ozone generator manufacturers, nearly all located overseas and driven by low production costs, attempt to mislead consumers into believing that ozone generators with decades-old technology, can remove mold from an entire house with a small or unspecified amount of ozone and rely on the consumer's trust and lack of understanding to sell their products.

Remember 1,000 mg/hr of ozone will shock treat a 100 sq. ft. room with a typical ceiling height in about an hour. An ozone generator that produces too little ozone for a particular space will never reach high enough ozone levels to clean and disinfect mold, mildew and mold spores to do the job right. Consumers are often misled by the manufacturer's claims about the amount of ozone produced because even a small amount will leave an ozone scent for awhile. However, without measuring the ozone output in a real-world situation with a device such as a BoiE Ozone Meter you will not know the truth.

Safely Performing a Shock Ozone Treatment

Anyone who observes precautions and follows the manufacturer directions can safely perform an ozone treatment of an unoccupied space. A shock ozone treatment refers to an enclosed area that has reached a high enough level of ozone exposure to perform a useful amount of cleaning and air purification. A minimum ozone concentration of 10 ppm is recognized by the EPA as an effective germ/virus/mold-killing level for an unoccupied space.

The ozone treatment may take anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour depending on the size of the space and the power of the ozone generator. People, pets and plants must not be present when an ozone treatment is performed. After the ozone treatment, the air recovery time can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours depending on the air temperature and amount of ventilation. The warmer the air the faster the recovery. BoiE has published an ozone generator treatment guide that outlines how an ozone treatment can be performed in a variety of situations and which BoiE ozone generators are recommended for each type of job.
