Do you remember when you first purchased your vehicle and just fell in love with that new car smell such as the plastic, the leather and just made you feel appreciated? Over time the scent starts to dissipate and in some cases you start get a dingy smell. In this post we will be discussing what Ozone is, how it benefits and alternatives for your DIY customers.
Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidant
Ozone exists in the ozone layer region of the atmosphere to protect human beings from the sunlight. We also sense its fresh and clean smell after thunderstorms.
Just this week I have had two customers request this service. One was a customer that went to the grocery store and a bag of Salmon got left under the truck seat and was found couple days later, keep in mind this took place during a hot summer day 1 year ago. After a proper cleaning of the interior and roughly 6 hours of running the Ozone machine it removed the smell that the customer has been fighting with for over a year.
In these cases for the DIY customers you can always try the simple stuff such as a rug doctor, baking soda and essential oil to help trap the smell, or you can purchase a bottle of IGL AIR from us for a very reasonable price.
If you do have something like this happen, call and discuss with us on what was spilled and we can point you in the right direction to safely remove an odor from your vehicle. In some cases yes it’s bet for you take it to a professional and have it detailed, it’s not cheap but you are ensured it will be done correctly and without causing damage to the vehicle.
Ozone is tested and proven effective against tough microorganisms like crypto and MRSA (antibiotic resistant staph). Ozone is very effective against a very large array of threatening microorganisms such as E.coli and Salmonella, Listeria, Pseudomonas, etc.
