Aqueous ozone is nature's effective cleaner and germ killer. It eliminates pathogens, grime, grease, and more from any surface. It's also more powerful than chlorine bleach and leaves no residues, reverting back to water and oxygen after heavy-duty cleaning.O3Aq is the cornerstone of our system using liquid ozone to replace chemical disinfectants. Disinfectants are very toxic for our home and work environments.Aqueous, or liquid ozone is perhaps the most misunderstood and maligned technology that we utilize, largely because of misunderstandings about ozone in general. Therefore, it has become the subject of undo concern.To set the record straight, we've compiled a list of FAQs that we've received and answered for clients. These will be addressed in following posts.
1. How safe is liquid ozone?Liquid ozone is in fact a strong oxidizer. However, this does not mean that it is corrosive or combustible in aqueous form (i.e. a solution of water). In residential and commercial cleaning applications it is completely safe and won't harm bare skin. In fact, it may help to kill germs that your hands may have contacted during the cleaning process. Therefore, you don't need to wear personal protective equipment like gloves as you would with harsh, chemical-based cleaning solutions.Cleaning staffs with asthma switching to aqueous ozone say their breathing is perfect after working with it for 8 hours, contrary to the effect chemicals had on their breathing by the end of a shift.2. Is liquid ozone bad for asthma suffers?No. Liquid ozone generators create ozone gas infused into a water media. Since ozone is an unstable molecule, it reverts to oxygen faster than the water evaporates without off-gassing. In this way liquid ozone is a safe and preferential alternative to chemical disinfectants, many of which are themselves asthma triggers.
