Air purification and odor elimination are critical parts of every restoration and remediation job. While some deodorizing products work by covering up or masking odors, hydroxyl machines, and ozone generators are two powerful tools that actually destroy unwanted odors to truly clean the air.

Hydroxyl machines and ozone generators are both used for air purification and odor elimination, but they work in different ways and have different pros and cons.

Hydroxyl machines work by producing hydroxyl radicals, which are highly reactive molecules that can break down and neutralize many types of pollutants, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and bacteria. Hydroxyl machines are safe to use around people and animals, as hydroxyl radicals are a natural component of the Earth's atmosphere.

Ozone generators when used in a drying chamber are an effective way to clean indoor air pollution and odors. Ozone generators can successfully sanitize both air and surfaces. SERVPRO of Dane County West secures a fire-rated polyethylene barrier material around the affected area and the ozone generator placed within the chamber destroys bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew while eliminating spores, fungus, oil, and other contaminants.
