When odors are present there is an underlying source that needs to be dealt with. Odor neutralization can be accomplished in many ways depending on the source. Odors as a result of pets, decaying mouse in a wall, skunks, fire, smoking, and spoiled foods are treated with neutralizers and/or ozone. Ozone is made up of oxygen O2 that is created when passing through electricity turning the molecules into ozone O3. The function of ozone (sterilant) is to destroy bacteria, viruses and odors by rupturing the cell composition.
Ozone occurs naturally as a result of lightning strikes during a storm leaving a fresh clean spring-type rain. After the bacteria, viruses and odors have dissipated; the ozone loses its molecular structure and turns back into oxygen in about thirty minutes.
Masking agent: Masking agents are the basic air fresheners that simply cover up an objectionable odor with a more pleasant fragrance. This is a short term solution as the odor source is not eliminated.
Pairing agent: Once the source of the odor is removed, a pairing agent bonds with the odor molecules, changes the chemical structure and neutralizes the odor. This may be accomplished by using an odor neutralizer, ozone generator, and thermal foggers.
At Clean Care of New England/C&C Construction we understand these physics and utilize various capacity ozone units depending on the severity of the problem and size of the structure. Other means of removing odors are wet fogging, thermal fogging, aerosol bombs, and air filtration.
