how does ozone kill odors

MaxBlaster ozone generators produce extremely high concentrations of ozone (O3) gas to neutralize odors, mold, and toxins at the molecular level. No chemicals or harsh residue. Ideal for fast, professional-grade sanitation treatments in cars, trucks, and RV's.


ozone treatment in cars

The traditional method of placing a ozone generator inside the vehicle works well if you are treating your own car, truck, or RV. Make sure the vehicle is completely dry, open all the compartments, roll the windows down about half an inch, then turn the ozone machine on and let it run according to the odor degree.

The professional method of running a ozone generator from outside the vehicle and funneling the O3 gas through a hose in the window has one main advantage: it allows the machine to breathe cleaner air and keeps the components free of grime. Ideal for car detailers, high-volume treatments, and long term efficiency.

The Pro Hose package is recommended for car detailers who treat a low volume of vehicles and already have a method for placing the ozone machine near the window of the vehicle.

The Pro Detailer package is recommended for car detailers who treat a high-volume of vehicles and/or want all the accessories, and service parts needed for years of profitable results.


What types of odors does it kill?


Any organic odor can be removed with proper use of a high-output ozone generator. The most common application for ozone machines in vehicles is smoke odor removal. Other highly successful applications include water damage (mold) remediation, pet odor removal, food odor removal, cannabis odor removal, dead rodent odor removal, and toxin/virus/bacteria remediation.

Is ozone safe to use in vehicles?


Thousands of car cleaning professionals use our ozone machines with zero instances of damage to vehicles. Follow the run time chart (included) for best results. One simple rule is to not forget to turn the ozone machine off and allow it to run for days on end. Significant over-exposure to ozone may create a new scent that is difficult to eliminate. Also, be careful not to return a vehicle to a customer until it has been thoroughly aired out. Contact us for more information about safety before adding ozone machines to your business services.

How do you prepare the vehicle?


The number one rule for treating vehicles is to make sure that the vehicle is completely dry prior to running the ozone machine. No damp/wet upholsteryYou also want to make sure that the vehicle is completely empty of all contents. Remove all items from the center console, visors, glove box, rear seat pouches, trunk area, and leave everything open and exposed to the ozone gas. For extra protection against prolonged airing out times, cover up the seatbelts as nylon material is relatively susceptible to ozone gas.

Where do you place the machine?


The simple way is to place the ozone machine inside the car and leave the windows down about half an inch. The professional way is to place the machine outside the vehicle and funnel the ozone in through a hose. The cleaner the air that the ozone machine breathes, the higher efficiency results you can expect over time.

What is the purpose of the hose?


The hose allows the ozone machine to remain outside the vehicle where it can breathe cleaner, fresher oxygen (O2) in order to convert into ozone (O3). It helps minimize service to the ozone machine over the long term. But you have to do it right - the only time you should use the hose is if you can get the ozone machine as close to the window as possible. Don't stretch the hose more than about 2' to avoid inefficiency.

How long do you run the machine?


To permanently kill odors with ozone (and not just mask the odors) you must flood the treatment area with a very high concentration of ozone gas for at least 30 minutes. Our PRO Edition ozone generator reaches these concentration levels inside a car in about 30 minutes. Therefore, basic/light odors may be removed in as little as 1 hour. Heavier and/or saturated odors may take several hours and/or multiple treatments. For best results, follow the run time chart (included) and/or contact us for project advice.

Should you leave the A/C on or off?


We recommend keeping the vehicle a/c off during the first 75% of the ozone treatment. This will allow the ozone to build up to the highest concentration level within the cabin without diluting it by running the air conditioner. Once you have reached peak ozone concentration inside the vehicle, turning the a/c on for the remaining 25% of the treatment will pull high levels of ozone into the vents, and may help to further deodorize the a/c system.

How do you air out the vehicle?


Given the small treatment area size (compared to a house) it is very easy and fast to air out a vehicle after the ozone treatment. Simply open all the windows and doors, then maybe drive the vehicle around the block for a few minutes. Or you can leave the vehicle shut, and simply wait for the ozone to go away on it's own. A conservative estimate is to allow 2 hours for every 1 hour that you ran the ozone machine for the O3 gas to dissipate naturally. Allowing the ozone to naturally dissipate provides additional cleaning benefits. 

What to do after the ozone session?


During the treatment, high concentrations of ozone gas has an unpleasant scent. But once the ozone has been aired out, the goal is to smell nothing (neutral air). No fragrances or odor masking. However, sometimes ozone will react with other materials inside the vehicle during the treatment and settle (invisibly) on the upholstery, floor, and dashboard. We recommend vacuuming and wiping everything down after the ozone session. The combination of high-intensity ozone followed by a thorough interior detailing provides the best results.

Can I just use a cheap ozone machine?


You can buy a cheap ozone machine on Amazon that might work for a couple of treatments. But the components are weak, fragile, and prone to short lifespan. Our MaxBlaster ozone generators are made with industrial components intended for frequent use in harsh conditions. Our ozone machines are guaranteed to be serviceable for at least 10 years. They work faster than ordinary ozone machines, and we are always on hand to provide support.
