Vehicle Odor Removal Ozone Treatments

Ozone Generators for Cars, Trucks, and Boats: How MaxBlaster Ozone Machines are Used by Pro Detailers and Dealerships.


Since 2006 we've helped thousands of vehicle and business owners successfully deodorize and disinfect cars, trucks, and RV's with our MaxBlaster ozone generators. Whether you need to remove an odor from your personal vehicle or treat a high-volume of vehicles in your commercial business, we can show you exactly how to do the ozone treatment properly and avoid some of the common mistakes people often make.


In the realm of automotive care, maintaining a fresh and odor-free interior is a top priority. Unpleasant smells caused by spills, smoke, or pets can linger in vehicles, making them less appealing and comfortable for drivers and passengers alike. Fortunately, the use of ozone generators has emerged as a game-changer in eliminating these stubborn odors. From individuals seeking to improve their personal vehicles to professional car detailers and dealerships striving to enhance customer satisfaction, ozone generators have become an indispensable tool in the pursuit of a pristine automobile environment.

Understanding Ozone Generators

MaxBlaster ozone generators produce extremely high levels of ozone gas using a process known as corona discharge. Ozone, composed of three oxygen atoms (O3), is a powerful oxidizing agent that reacts with pollutants, eliminating them and neutralizing odors in the process. The overall goal is flood the treatment area with an overabundance of ozone gas in what is known as "shock" ozone treatment. The result is a totally neutral environment. No chemicals and no residue. Ozone generators do not mask odors and toxins. Rather they eliminate odors permanently at the molecular level.

Two Methods of Treatment

There are two methods to treat vehicles. The "old school" method is when you place the ozone machine inside the vehicle during operation. The "new school" method is when you run the ozone machine from outside the vehicle and funnel the ozone into the cabin via a hose adapter. The primary benefit of running the ozone machine from outside the vehicle is that it allows the machine to breathe cleaner air and keeps the components of the machine less grimy over time. Maintenance rates can be decreased by running the ozone machine outside the vehicle which is why so many professionals and high-volume treatment providers prefer this new school method.

Quick Tips

Make sure the vehicle is completely dry. No wet/damp floors or upholstery. The vehicle does not need to be sealed air tight. Keep the windows open about a quarter of an inch. Leave the A/C system off for the majority of the ozone treatment. This will allow the ozone to build up in the cabin to the highest possible levels. Turn the A/C on towards the end of the ozone treatment to help pull the high concentrations of ozone through the vents to aid in the overall cleaning process. Light ozone concentration will only temporarily remove odors. To kill odors permanently you must reach "shock" ozone levels. Use our MaxBlaster PRO Edition for best overall long-term results.

Individuals: Eradicating Odors from Personal Vehicles

For individuals, their vehicles are not only a means of transportation but also an extension of their personal space. Whether it's the remnants of a fast food meal, a spilled beverage, or even the lingering scent of a pet's presence, these odors can be bothersome and difficult to remove. Ozone generators offer a practical solution by eliminating odors at their source.

Ozone, a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms, is a powerful oxidant. Ozone generators produce ozone gas and disperse it into the vehicle's interior. When ozone molecules come into contact with odor-causing bacteria, viruses, or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), they break down and neutralize these substances, effectively eliminating the source of the odor. With the simple process of running an ozone generator for a specified period, individuals can restore a fresh and clean scent to their vehicles.

Car Detailers: Enhancing Professional Services

Car detailers face the challenge of dealing with a wide range of vehicle conditions, often requiring them to tackle deeply ingrained odors. Ozone generators have become an essential tool in their arsenal, enabling them to deliver exceptional results to their clients.

By utilizing ozone generators, car detailers can quickly and efficiently eliminate odors that may have proved resistant to traditional cleaning methods. Ozone treatment can penetrate upholstery, carpets, and other porous materials, reaching the areas where odors have been absorbed. Car detailers can provide a comprehensive service by not only cleaning but also deodorizing the vehicle's interior, ensuring a truly rejuvenated and pleasant environment.

Dealerships: Elevating Customer Satisfaction

Dealerships understand the importance of presenting vehicles in the best possible condition to potential buyers. A malodorous interior can significantly detract from a vehicle's appeal, potentially jeopardizing sales. To address this issue, dealerships have turned to ozone generators as a highly effective solution.

Before showcasing a pre-owned vehicle or delivering a new car to its buyer, dealerships often perform a thorough cleaning process. By incorporating ozone treatment into their routine, dealerships can eliminate odors that may have developed during a vehicle's previous ownership, such as smoke, pet odors, or musty smells. The result is a fresh, neutral interior that enhances the overall perception of the vehicle, increasing customer satisfaction and the likelihood of a successful sale.
