1. Is Ozone safe?
OzoneTech uses a type of man-made ozone, which is ozone generated for a speciﬁc purpose. Ozone of this type has numerous practical applications, including in the home and at industrial sites such
as waste-management and water-treatment facilities. It is created under strict conditions to meet speciﬁc safe parameters. If used correctly, it is a very safe and effective way of tackling things
like bacteria and viruses. It also has the beneﬁt of being as environmentally friendly as any other industrial cleaning product-even more so, perhaps, since it leaves no harmful by-products and
leftover ozone is destroyed in the process.
Some chemicals used to clean in the home like bleach are very harmful should they be ingested by animals or even people (especially children who are simply curious). Ozone generators are diﬃcult to use incorrectly, since so much of it is automated.
The disinfecting effect of the ozone has long been proven. Ozone is the second strongest oxidation agent, 3000x stronger than chlorine.
2. Is personal presence allowed during ozone treatments?
What you have to be aware of, ﬁrst and foremost, is that you cannot breathe ozone. During any ozone treatment, whether in automobiles, hotels, homes and buildings, a person should not be present or inside the area being treated.
3. Is the 25 minutes of The HCG unit's disinfecting cycle time enough?
Yes it is. For average interior conditions, it is deﬁnitely suﬃcient. In case there is a strong odour saturation, the working cycle can be repeated 2-3 times as necessary with 15-20 minutes waiting time between treatments.
In vehicles, the bad smell contributor is the plugged or highly contaminated A/C evaporator drain tube or system. Ensure the source of the bad smell is ﬁrst eliminated, otherwise it will return!
4. Should the car's fan be on recycling mode and turned on?
It is not necessary. The main unique feature of the HCG unit is the direct disinfecting access into ventilation ducts and tubes. Once it is in operation, the cabin interior and the ventila-tion system will be completely sanitized and all odours removed.
5. What type of precaution needs to be followed when the HCG unit is in use?
Please read the full instruction details and health and safety information. Just make sure that the Cabin ozone outlet is not blocked and all tubes are inserted at least 25-30 com 10``-12`` into the 3 main dashboard air registers.
6. Is there any pre-preparation needed before the ozone treatment?
The ozone will not remove any spots (nor will it leave any spots) or destroy any garbage. Remove any spots before the treatment and remove all garbage from the interior before the HCG unit is activated.
7. Anything to do after the treatment?
After using the HCG unit, keep doors open for 3-4 minutes, which allows the concentrated "after rain smell" to leave the area. No other cleaning is necessary. The "after rain smell" will be noticeable for 1 or 2 days but no other harmful contributors will be present.
Reminder: The produced ozone atom will die after 25-30 minutes and change back to oxygen.
