Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the CE Odor Removal process work?
A: CE Odor Removal uses an Ozone treatment against odors. Ozone (O3) is a colorless gas with a distinct, pungent odor. It is a molecule made up of 3 atoms of oxygen. Ozone occurs in nature, most often as a result of lightning strikes that occur during thunderstorms. In fact, that “fresh, clean, spring rain” smell that we notice after a storm most often results from nature’s creation of ozone. Ozone generators create ozone in your home or business ensuring the same clean air as found in nature.
Q:What should I do before the ozone treatment?
A: The key to maximizing ozone’s potential is to remove the source of the odor prior to the shock treatment. Rooms must be reasonably cleaned before you order our Ozone Treatment Service. Set the HVAC system fan to the “ON” position to circulate the air, heating “OFF” (summer time A/C “ON”). All doors, cabinet doors and drawers must be opened. No humans, pets, or plants!
