Visited the Newaire people at the ISSA janitorial supply show last month.
Saw the whole product line – specifically an ozone generator designed to be wired right into a wall to run intermittently 24 / 7. It’s about the size of a 4 plug electrical outlet.
Very cool idea.
They claim you could put it in a bedroom or other area where people spend long periods of time with no risk from the ozone – because of the tiny dose.
I wouldn’t – plus it’s probably unnecessary in those type of situations – not that much odor – usually.
But it would be great in bathrooms, kitchens, over a cat box or pet bed – areas that often generate odor.
Especially in an office or plant bathroom, this is a great idea – lots of people use those rooms – lots of odor generation – but nobody (we hope) hangs out in there for 24 straight hours – so absolutely minimal inhalation of ozone by any one individual – but it’s working all the time to destroy odors.
Their car cigarette lighter ozone generator (similar to the old Sharper Image one) is probably a good idea if you travel with smokers – while a little more exposure to ozone would result, I’m guessing the ozone would be less risky than breathing in the second hand smoke organic solvents it neutralizes.
