|High Ozone Shock
Treatments are very effective for removing
stubborn odors like smoke, mold, and animal odors. It is useful to "blow
out" an unoccupied room with a large amount of ozone to kill many of the
odors and germs that may be present.
This is completely
different from the use of ozone for low level air purifying.
Purifying is usually done with the ozone level set very low when people
High Ozone Shock
Treatments are only to be done in rooms when
no people, animals, or plants are present. This is because a high
toxic level of ozone is needed to kill the germs, mold, and viruses present
in the room.
way to truly sterilize an area of mold, bacteria, or serious odors is with
these very high levels of ozone. You cannot totally "sterilize" of
mold with lower air purification levels of ozone.

This can be proven
by ozone / bacterial / mold killing studies where several prominent universities
and labs have proven this fact beyond a reasonable doubt.

ozone generators are actually worse to use because they give the user a
false sense of security because some of the mold odor has been covered
since only the mold odor
has been temporarily covered up, and the majority of the toxic mold is
still alive, we believe this is a more dangerous situation than not using
these cheap gimmick items to begin with.

the strongest available sterilizer known to man, yet it is safe because
it is made up completely of simple Oxygen,
and completely reverts back to Oxygen in a
relatively short time.
That's one of the best features of ozone.
It can be very toxic at high levels, which you must by definition of the
word have to kill something, and yet have the ability to revert completely
back to a completely non toxic state very quickly. Because of these amazing
qualities ozone may be the safest, yet most powerful bactericides available.
Fungicides are great and do kill mold,
yet they remain leaving toxic substances around your home.
While their strength diminishes it
takes a very long time for them to completely vanish.
Aged fungicides don't have enough toxicity
left to kill any remaining mold, and they can't prevent it from coming
In other words you will still have
toxic chemicals in your home, and they are doing little or nothing
to prevent the mold from returning, yet these toxic substances could still
be entering your body.
When you use a fungicide it's not as
strong as when using the proper amount of ozone to kill the bacteria, yet
it is more toxic to us because it remains long after it is used.
Imagine a gas like ozone that is made
up of something we depend upon life to breathe, being able to be concentrated
to very high toxic levels that can kill any bacteria, virus, or mold known
to man, that reverts completely back to it's non toxic form in a short
time. Ozone is truly a miracle.

High Ozone Shock
Treatments are done with the unit run at full
power for a measured period of time in an unoccupied room. The more ozone
you blast into an unoccupied room them more mold or bacteria you are likely
to kill. These treatments are safe because once again, they are only done
You simply turn
the unit up to it's maximum capacity of ozone output, set the countdown
timer, and leave the room. You can then return to the area an hour
or more after the unit's timer has shut the machine down all the ozone
will have reverted back to simple oxygen by then.

treatments are what kill mold and bacteria, not the low levels used for

|If serious mold

or better yet an XT-6000
We don't normally
like to give out square footage ratings because the contamination level,
as well as many other factors may be different in any particular situation.
As a rough guide
for serious situation we like to recommend the XT-2000
for a 20 X 20 foot room, and XT-4000
for a 30 X 30 foot room, and an XT-6000
for a 40 X40 foot room.
These numbers are only a BASIC
guide. They do not hold true for every situation.
There is no reason you could not use
the XT-6000 in a 20
X 20 room, and you would be definitely be better off in doing so.
More bacteria and mold will be killed
in a faster period of time. If the mold infestation is serious simply running
an XT-2000 will never
achieve the same ozone level as an XT-6000,
and therefore not work as well as the XT-6000.

It is important
to note that to kill mold, bacteria, and to remove strong odors as much
ozone as possible should be introduced into the area.
High ozone treatments
should be performed room by room as to get the ozone concentration as high
as possible. Trying to treat an entire house at once will not yield a very
high concentration and thus not do a very good job.

the disintegrating ozone, and therefore never achieve the required ozone
levels needed for a high kill ratio. An XT-4000
run for one hour will have a higher kill ratio than an XT-2000
run for two hours.
For strong odors,
and to kill mold and bacteria using as strong a machine as possible is
recommended. of course the XT-6000

Every ozone generator
owner should try High Ozone Shock Treatments.
Many times the
shock treatment will be enough to freshen the room and the ozone need not
be on when the room is occupied. Some individuals are sensitive to even
low levels of ozone and

are the best method for them to
use ozone for great benefit when they are not in the room. The effects
of the ozone will continue to last even after the generator is turned off.

SHOCK TREATMENT PROCEDURES
and Flood Restorations
A ozone shock
treatment procedure is recommended to eliminate odor contamination and
provide continuous control over recurring contamination with ozone.
Choose a size
of ozone generator recommended for the contaminated area.
A fan may be placed
throughout the area being treated to provide good ozone distribution.
Point the ozone
generator it in the direction of the problem area.
Operate the unit
at it's highest capacity for as long as it takes to eliminate the odor
problem. Treatments of 30-120 minutes are recommended to initially treat
in furniture, walls, and bedding may take longer to treat since these are
porous materials that tend to hold in the odors.
When the high
ozone shock treatment is completed air the room out if possible and/or
don't enter it for about an hour.
If odors continue
place the ozone generator permanently in the area operating at a low level.
Severe cases may
require a 24 + hour treatment. Milder cases may need a smaller unit or
use of a lower output setting.
procedure can be used for treating rooms with foul odors, smoke damaged
furniture or clothing, auto restorations, garbage rooms, basements, hotel
rooms or anywhere a severe odor problem exists.
performing a high ozone shock treatment, make sure that all people, pets,
plants and other animals are removed from the area to be treated. Also
make sure that the ozone does not leak into connected or occupied rooms
by way of furnace vents or wall cracks etc.
If you smell mold you have mold, and
it will NOT go away on it's own.
The big question on everyone's mind
is how to control mold. Mold odors an live mold spores require the largest
ozone generators available to properly do the job. If a mold situation
is very serious in a basement an XT-6000
generator or larger may be recommended.
Using the maximum amount of ozone,
blasted into an unoccupied room, is always the best way to kill and control
It is recommended you remove all visible
mold with a solution of bleach and water. Using a series High
Ozone Shock Treatments before, during, and
after mold removal is recommended. These treatments help kill live mold
spores and help prevent the mold from returning.
A room completely
cleaned of mold may develop mold again since mold likes to grow where it
once lived before. That's why it's important to own an ozone generator
to be able to perform periodic high ozone treatments to continue to battle
the mold problem.
