WHY DOES OZONE KILL ODORS, GERMS, BACTERIA AND VIRUSES?
A. One of the oxygen atoms has a weak bond and readily wants to transfer electrons. This allows for the transfer of electrons between the contaminant and the ozone molecule. As a consequence, the ozone molecule will come apart. When the single oxygen atom combines with the other organic substances it oxidizes them causing them to be destroyed and eliminated from the water or air. The by-product of this oxidation process is 0, which is oxygen.
