Important Note About Ozone Shock Treatment

The source of any odor must be removed before ozone treatment. If the smell source is not removed (e.g. garbage, mold, dead rodents, etc.), no amount of ozone can eliminate these odors completely. The treatment areas must also be properly cleaned for ozone shock treatment to work properly.

    Cigarette smoke contains numerous chemicals which are hazardous to our health. These chemicals cling to surfaces and cause foul odors and can even create an unhealthy environment by leaving toxins in the air.


   Our Ozone generators can quickly and safely remove the smells associated with tobacco smoke by attacking the phenol gasses produced by cigarettes. Cars can be rendered odor free in as little as 30 minutes and even large homes and commercial buildings can be treated relatively quickly. Businesses can have designated smoking areas treated which can improve the smell dramatically. Ozone can even be applied to an entire house to increase its appeal to a prospective home buyer.

Did You Know?

  • The smell associated with cigarette smoke is actually a chemical. This chemical bonds to the walls and fixtures, and is constantly recirculated throughout the home through the ventilation system.

  • Masking this chemical with air fresheners will only work for a time and may pose its own health risks. The only way to ensure the smell does not return is to eliminate the chemical itself. Ozone is a safe and cost-effective way to accomplish this.

  • The particles that are released from cigarette smoke are about .001% the width of a hair. They can easily seep through flooring, walls and other surfaces.

  • Some studies suggest that the particles that cause smoke odor can potentially be as hazardous as the smoke itself.

  • Smoke particles can linger in the air long after the cigarette has been extinguished.

  • Covering up a tobacco smell with a fresh coat of paint creates two problems of its own:

    • Once a smell has been painted over, ozone treatment will not be effective since ozone can only deal with smells on surfaces; it cannot penetrate paint layers

    • Painting will only temporarily remove the smell. Over time, even within weeks and months, the chemical will begin leaking through the fresh coat of paint
