We are fully trained and certified by CanNACHI (The Canadian National Association of Certified Home Inspectors) We will provide a detailed and honest assessment in a timely manner.
A thorough inspection will reduce worry and concern, allowing you to make an educated decision about the purchase of your home.
Ozone Shock Treatment is an environmentally friendly process used to remove odours caused by cooking, cigarettes, fire and flood, pets/animals and people . We can treat your home, automobile, recreational vehicles and sporting equipment For more information check out the International Ozone Association at https://www.ioa-pag.org/
Ozone is the second most powerful sterilant in the world and can be used to destroy bacteria, viruses and odours. Interestingly ozone occurs quite readily in nature, most often as a result of lightning strikes that occur during thunderstorms. In fact the fresh, clean, spring rain smell that we notice after a storm most often results from nature’s creation of ozone. However, we are probably most familiar with ozone from reading about the "ozone layer" that circles the planet above the earth’s atmosphere. Here ozone is created by the sun's ultra-violet rays. This serves to protect us from the ultra-violet radiation.
While ozone is very powerful, it has a very short life cycle. When contaminants such as odours, bacteria or viruses make contact with ozone, they are destroyed completely by oxidation. The odour will not come back unless the source of the odour was not completely removed or it has been reintroduced. Ozone reverts back to oxygen usually within 20-30 minutes.
What is Ozone made up of? Ozone (O3) is a highly charged form of the oxygen (O2) that we breathe. Nature has been producing ozone for millions of years. At ground level, O3 and also acts as a natural sanitizer to keep the air smelling fresh and clean. In the upper atmosphere, ozone acts as a protective layer that partially shields the earth from the sun's UV rays. Life on earth as we know it could not exist without O3. This third oxygen atom is loosely attached, unstable and seeks out pollutants. It will then release and oxidize the pollutant on contact. Ozone (O3) is sometimes referred to as "Activated Oxygen", "Triatomic Oxygen" or "Super Oxygen". It contains three atoms of oxygen (O3) rather than the two in the air that we breathe (O2). Keeping in mind Ozone is Ozone. Oxygen in this form is a powerful sterilizer that can destroy bacteria, viruses and odours on contact. Ozone is often created in nature, usually as a result of lightning strikes. Our machines produce ozone by passing dried, oxygen-containing gas through an electrical field that causes the oxygen molecules to 'split'.
How Does Nature Produce Ozone? Ozone is created by lightning during active thunderstorms by splitting O2 molecules in half, and allowing the single molecules to attach to regular oxygen molecules, thus becoming O3. The process is known as corona discharge and often creates a fresh clean smell in the air after a thunderstorm that can be very distinctive. Ozone is also created by ultraviolet rays from the sun striking the earth and its atmosphere.
Nature creates O3 as a natural cleaner during thunderstorms, and also from sunlight striking the earth’s atmosphere. As an example, we’ve all taken a walk after a thunderstorm and experienced the clean, fresh smell in the air. That's O3, or ozone, at work.
Normal oxygen (O2) is converted to O3, which is commonly called ozone. It reverts back to O2 in about an hour if the O3 is unused. This leaves the air fresh and clean because the source of the odour has been permanently removed. And there are no artificial odours so the space becomes free of odours, as nature intended. Employ the cleaning power of nature and create an outdoor fresh environment in your facility!
