An ozone machine is a device that generates ozone, which is a naturally occurring gas in the earth’s atmosphere that is composed of three oxygen atoms (O3). Often referred to as an ozone generator, an ozone machine is commonly used to improve the air quality of the interior of a room or building by removing strong odors that may be present.Should you use an ozone generator?
Ozone generators are to be used with caution . Although they are considered safe in industrial and medical applications where strict safety standards are to be followed, using them at home poses serious danger to human health. The amount of ozone required to eliminate viruses and bacteria exceeds public health standards.Are ozone Machines Dangerous?
Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and compromise the ability of the body to fight respiratory infections. People vary widely in their susceptibility to ozone. Therefore, you should only run ozone machines on very low settings, in well ventilated spaces, if people and pets are present.Are ozone generators bad?
Ozone is dangerous in high concentrations. No one can deny that. It also does very little in low concentrations. The idea behind ozone generators is that you vacate the room, and expose it to extremely high levels of ozone (way higher than would be safe to breathe) to shock it (hence the term ‘ozone shock’).
