Winter brings rain and snow. The ensuing dampness can cause mold and mildew to show up when the warm weather returns. Some types of mold are hazardous to our health and removing them from your car is vital. Air Conditioning will cause dampness in the vents causing mold and odor which not only stinks it can cause allergy reactions.
At Trusted Detailing, LLC we use state of the art Ozone generators to kill all mold, smoke and 99.99% of all odors in your vehicle.
RGF mobile pro Ozone generator One of the major benefits of ozone is its ability to oxidize or purify substances. It is thousands of time faster than chlorine and disinfects 3 to 4 times more efficiently.
The bombardment of oxygen (O2) from the suns UV rays caused an oxygen molecule to split. This allows the third or stray oxygen atom to attach itself to another oxygen molecule, thus forming ozone, or O3. The ozone molecules are what oxidize or purifies odors.
With the RGF Mobile Pro, ozone is generated by the use of UV light. This method produces substantial amounts of ozone with zero maintenance for up to 10,000 hours.
Air contaminants can be controlled while staying within the legal limits of 0.04 ppm. Some of the contaminants that can be oxidized and destroyed are: Smoke, mold, mildew, bacteria, V.O.Cs, algae, yeast, urine, fungus, hydrocarbons, The specifications of the machine are as follows: 12 volt DC or 110 volt AC use dimensions: 3.75 W 3.75 H 20 L Ozone production: 185 nm high output UV light generator Warranty: 3 year parts and labor, 1 year on cell On/off 2 hour timer Ozone output: 10 ppm @32cfm
Vehicle Odor and Mold Removal
- All vehicles build up odors from regular use. There are the usual spills from food and beverages, which get down into hard-to-reach areas. Tobacco fumes can penetrate upholstery and microscopic smoke residue will cling to the ceiling and other interior surfaces. Pet and body odors can also become embedded in the seats and carpets.
- Cigarette Smoke
- Mold & Mildew
- Smoke Damage
- Food Odors
- Pet Odors
- Carpet Odors
- Water Damage
- Cleaning Fumes
- Beverage Odors
- Decaying Matter
- New Construction
How Ozone Purifies the Air
Ozone oxidizes airborne pollutants, then reverts back to oxygen, transforming polluted air to pure and re-freshened air.
Here is how the process works:
Oxygen molecules (O1 and O2) are converted to ozone (O3) by either a high-voltage electrical charge (such as from lightning), or by ultraviolet light (such as from the sun rays).
One oxygen atom (O1) splits off from the ozone molecule, and reacts with other particles when it comes within range of a particle and/or pollutant. Ozone is highly reactive, so it never fails to initiate this reaction with other particles.
As the 2nd most powerful oxidant in existence, the single oxygen atom proceeds to "oxidize" the particle it reacts with. This means it burns the particle, which changes its physical properties. As a result, the particle will no longer be toxic, and will no longer be able to reproduce if it is biological. In other words, the particle becomes completely harmless.
When the single oxygen (O1) molecule oxidizes the particle, it too is destroyed. This leaves behind the O2 it split away from, or pure and clean oxygen and no odors.
Ozone is also created near the ground by lightning. The fresh smell in the air after a thunderstorm is ozone. The amount of ozone created in an average thunderstorm is about three times the safe limit according to US EPA regulations.
