Odour Removal

Many years ago I sought a solution for removing bad odours and smells from cars, most typically cigarette and cigar smoke. At the time, many solutions involved chemicals which sorted out a few, but not all kinds of odour and smells. I found that cleaning with hot steam vapour and using Ozone was the most effective broad spectrum odour removal methods. As a matter of fact, I’ve been using Ozone since 2009. While I’ve had significant successes in complete removal of odours and bad smells in all this time and why I’ve continued using Ozone, the best that can ever be guaranteed is an improvement.

An Ozone treatment service is done by placing an Ozone generator in your car to remove or improve bad odours and smells as well as disinfect vehicle interiors without the need for chemicals.

Our Ozone generator produces Ozone by Static charge like lightning and Ultraviolet light, UV-C, like from the rays of the sun. It’s this dual treatment that makes it very effective over using only one method.

Ozone purifies the cabin air and disinfects all the surfaces of your vehicle’s interior that it comes in contact with.

Ozone should only be done after a vehicle has been thoroughly cleaned, preferably with steam, before doing an Ozone treatment. Read more about our Full Valet / Interior Steam Cleaning service

It is also highly recommended that your vehicles pollen or air filter is replaced to ensure all sources of bad smell is eliminated.

The treatment itself takes and hour which includes setup, maneuvering time and airing out after the treatment.

What’s Ozone?

Ozone smells exactly like the air after a lightning storm. Fresh and electric. Ozone is a gas (O3) generated by lightning as well as present in the Ozone layer ( Upper Atmosphere)

It can be generated by Corona discharge very much like the static charge of lightning.

It is also generated by ultraviolet light (UV-C)

It is a primary method of disinfection at many water works.

“What is Ultraviolet / UV-C?”

Ultraviolet light is a wavelength of light emitted by the rays of the sun naturally and can be generated artificially. Specifically the UV-C wavelength is used for disinfection.

While UV does give off an amount of Ozone, it’s the wavelength of light that it emits, that when biological organisms such as virus or bacteria, are exposed to the UV-C wavelength of light, in the range of 200 nm to 300 nm, it is absorbed by that organism’s DNA & RNA inactivating it, preventing it from replicating and when absorbed by cellular proteins, leads to the rupture of cell walls and death of that organism.

How does Ozone & UV-C Disinfect & Sanitize a Car’s Interior?

With the combined force of Ozone & UV-C, our system is effective at killing airborne and surface organisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, mould and protozoa by destroying their exterior molecular shell. Ozone is known to be effective against SARS, poliovirus I and 2, human rotaviruses, Norwalk virus, Parvoviruses, and Hepatitis A, B and non-A non-B.

How do you remove Bad Odour and smells?

I ‘ve been using Ozone to effectively remove odour or bad smells for cars over many years with great results.

Bad smell or odor is either caused by bacteria on decaying organic matter or its an aerosol.

Therefore to remove a smell you need to remove the decaying particles by cleaning and disinfecting both the surface and air from bacteria.
