    I do not believe that a large amount of ozone for a handful of times would cause any significant damage to a car's interior components, and I have run ozone in my car maybe 100 times with no noticeable effects on my already 35 year old interior. I believe that using ozone to rid a car of bad smells only occasionally to be not too damaging. The cost/benefit analysis I have performed shows it is worth it.
    These things are often subjective. My view is that we do know that ozone is a hazard (the extent of which is the point of debate) so I would immediately direct people to options which do not present that hazard. It is the same reason people shy away from strong acid based wheel cleaners, for instance. The acids can and will cause damage to some rims so we strive to negate that risk with alternative products. However, that is not to say that acid wheel cleaners will definitely damage a rim and thus, as per the ozone, the method is not ruled out for all users.

    They work very well, but they are not a stand alone machine - meaning that the interior must be cleaned (steam is the best way). Most vehicles have an in-cab filter which also needs to be changed out to be completely successful. If the back seats open up into the trunk area than this also should be done as well as the trunk detailed.

    Running the generator for about 20 minutes to 45 minutes (while you're washing/waxing) should be enough time with the right machine.

    So Dave, what type of work do you do with Ozone? I was wondering if ozone was strong enough to get smoke smell out of a house as well (where people have been smoking cigs).

However, ozone is also very reactive with many non-targeted materials, such as dust in the air, fabric, and plastic and metals that are in the surrounding environment. Because of these non-targeted side reactions, more ozone may be needed for a particular job in order to maintain a level high enough to react with the odor-causing compounds. Additionally, aggressive side reactions can damage furniture and appliances in the area being deodorized with ozone. Ozone also requires the use of sophisticated machinery and electricity."
    I would agree on this front! The Chlorine Dioxide solutions I've used in the past have been really easy to use. I think most of them come with a canister where you can simply add water, leave it in your car overnight, and throw away the canister in the morning. With the chlorine dioxide being a gas, it "goes" wherever air can reach in the vehicle and is a big win. This site has an instructional video that shows how to use a chlorine dioxide canister in a vehicle!

    So Alex,

    Did you read the forum rules?

    I came to work this morning and went through pending accounts. I do this every day. I approve real human beings and remove spammers.

    When I came across your account and saw you were Alex Whitmore @ pureline.com - I thought,

    I should take the time to send this guy and e-mail letting him know he cannot come to this forum and spam it with his business.

    But then - I have a lot to do, this would simply be yet another thing I have to do. So I approved your account giving you the benefit of the doubt. And now in your first post you spam the form.


    I know I should go with my hunches, but I'm a nice guy and I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I figured you were going to start out by posting a link to your company website but I wanted to give you a chance to prove me wrong.

    I'm sure you make great products but Autogeek didn't build this platform as a marketing channel for outside companies. Make sense? It would be like Autogeek having the ability to put an add on your company's homepage for products sold on Autogeek.

    I know your intentions are probably good - but that doesn't make it alright.


    What say you?

    Re: Ozone Generator... Does it really work?

    And like most people, no one reads any more. The link for the forum rules is at the top of EVERY page on this forum.


    Here's the forum rules, see the portion I made bold and red.


    Forum Rules


    The purpose of Autogeekonline.com is for detailing discussion, providing a place for likeminded auto "Geeks" to share knowledge and partake in fellowship.

    1. The AutogeekOnline discussion forum is exclusively sponsored by Autogeek.com. Product discussion should be limited to products that are available from Autogeek.com and PBMA's family of websites.

    Links, videos or recommendations to competing products and companies that are not available through Autogeek.com will be moved to the Moderators forum and offenders will be warned or simply placed into the SELF-BANNED category of member groups on this forum.

    Repeated linking and recommendations of products not available through Autogeek.com may result in a permanent ban. Moderators have the right to edit any posts that contain links, recommendations or other information pertaining to competing companies that are not associated with Autogeek.com


    2. No arguing with Moderators or Administrators.

    3. You are welcome to disagree but you must be polite.

    4. No bashing any company or their products. No bashing other people. If you can't say anything nice about someone, then don't say anything at all, this also includes talking to others in a demeaning manner.

    REMEMBER this forum is here for those that are new to detailing and those that have been doing this for years. We expect that you treat everyone with respect no matter what their level of detailing is. We all had to start somewhere.


    5. Forum Nicknames and Avatars must be family friendly, they cannot even hint towards anything raunchy, sleazy, sexual or inappropriate. When in doubt we will err on the side of caution and ask you to choose a different Avatar or Nickname.

    6. E-mail addresses cannot be used as a forum nickname.

    7. If any thread gets off topic it will be at the discretion of the moderator to close and/or move it to moderators corner.

    8. Keep language "G Rated", this includes insinuations. If you wouldn't say it in front of your grandparents, your parents or your children, then you shouldn't probably be posting to the AutogeekOnline forum.

    9. Self-promoting clickable links are not allowed in your posts. Detailers can put a link to their company in their signature, as long as they are not selling anything but their services.

    10. Moderators have the right to move any thread that does not follow within the AGO rules to moderators corner.

    11. Only one account per member! The only conceivable reason for multiple accounts would be for fraudulent activity. You will be banned for this action immediately.

    12. Continuously breaking the rules to disrupt the online community will result in you being banned from the forum.

    13. No Commercial sales, personal sales or samples from competing companies. One post trying to promote and you will have banned yourself permanently. This is a private forum not an open forum. No links to outside companies for sales either.

    14. All messages posted to AutogeekOnline become the property of Autogeek.net. and may not be deleted without first obtaining permission.

    15. No personal attacks toward members or non-members will be tolerated.




    Exceptions:
    We stand behind our Moderators, if our Moderators think you're causing problems for the online community they are empowered to take whatever action necessary to correct the problem.


    Rule Infraction Enforcement
    Everyone makes mistakes however; pushing the house rules to the limit will not be tolerated. Therefore, chronic and severe violators of AGO rules will be warned, put on a Queue (time-out), or completely banned based on the severity of the violation. We will apply rule enforcement as follows:

    1st time offense - Warning: Minor rule infractions, you will be sent a PM or email by a moderator pointing out the infraction. There will be no action at this time outside of the warning.

    2nd time offense - Queue: This will give you a 24 hour up to a two week forum break. This will occur after you have been warned previously or if you are involved with bashing of other members, being a hot-head, spamming, bad language, posting inappropriate materials.

    3rd and last time - Banned: You will have effectively banned yourself if you are a repeat offender or if you are involved with any of the following....blatant spamming/selling, attacking forum moderators, pornography, racial/sexist/threatening posts, trolling, fraud, liable/slander, multiple accounts, shills.
