The Ozone Solution- Better and Safer
The FDA, USDA and EPA have approved ozone as an antimicrobial disinfectant. Over 3,000 times faster and 50% more powerful than chlorine, ozone kills germs, bacteria, fungi, Coronavirus including Covid19, salmonella, e. coli, listeria, norovirus and so much more and leaves no chemical residue. Unique properties make it both one of the most powerful oxidizers available while still being safe to use. Ozone is the combination of 3 oxygen molecules. When ozone encounters a pathogen, one of the oxygen atoms separates, pierces the cell wall and destroys it. After ozone’s purifying work is done, all that remains is O2 — the oxygen we breathe.
How does ozone kill a virus? Most viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules that multiply only within the host cell. Covid19 is what is considered an “enveloped virus.” Enveloped viruses are usually more sensitive to physico-chemical challenges. Studies have shown, 99% of viruses have been damaged or destroyed after 30 seconds of exposure to ozone. Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA. At higher concentrations, ozone destroys the exterior protein shell by oxidation.
When disinfecting large areas, Ozone gas has been proven to kill the coronavirus when disinfecting large areas, Currently, there are over 20 scientific studies that prove ozone gas can destroy the coronavirus.
