Benefits of Ozone Shock Treatment & COVID-19
Posted on 20, April, 2020
Sanitizing your car can be an essential precaution to take for you and your family. Coronavirus COVID-19 can exist outside a host. This means it survives on surfaces. Ozone Shock treatment spreads and saturates the vehicle interior and attacks and oxidizes odors, disinfecting viruses in the process and leaving the material scent-free with no chemical residue. Essentially, it takes fresh air from the outside and permeates with the ozone gas to then sterilizes the inside of your car. During this current COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to know the resources essential business, like our shop, are offering. We want to do our part to protect the safety and health of our community.
Effectiveness of Ozone:
When it comes to airborne viruses, they can stick to almost any surface. This can include your vehicle's high touch points. This includes:
- Door Handles
- Steering wheel
- Gear Shifter
These viruses can be killed off by disinfectants. Ozone is the strongest disinfectant option there is. Sterilizing the air and difficult to clean surfaces with ozone is relatively simple. An ozone generator mixes gas with a supply air stream then distributes it into the vehicle and ultimately purifies the air. A higher concentration of ozone can significantly lower your risk to exposure of a virus.
This treatment can be useful people who fall within these categories:
- Families with young children
- People with a history low immune systems
- People who have direct exposure to viruses and pathogens
- Healthcare workers
- First responders
At this current time, there has not been official research to state ozone is 100% effective in killing coronavirus COVID-19, due to it being recent and peer reviewed studies have not been conducted. However, previous research indicated that ozone gas has effectively eliminated SARS coronavirus which is seemingly identical to COVID-19.
Taking precautions to sanitize the air you breathe in a confined space, like your vehicle, can lower your risk to being exposed or susceptible to harmful bacteria and viruses.
