Treating apparel and individual items with ozone is more common than most people realize. However, given the uniqueness of the treatment, it requires special set-up instructions. In order to treat individual items and clothes, they must be placed into a small treatment area such as a closet, room, or a box that is big enough to contain all the items. A good suggestion is a portable closet that you can buy at any home improvement store for about twenty-five dollars. If you fill the space with high concentrations of ozone, you can treat all the items within the space. The smaller the treatment area the easier and faster it is to reach high concentrations of ozone.
All the surface areas of the items must be open and exposed. The items cannot be stacked on top of each other within the treatment area. Clothes must be hung up and spaced out. Books must be placed on their back and fanned out. Ozone will not penetrate through solid matter so you must set up the items accordingly. The items cannot be wet or damp. Make sure all items are dry and free of moisture for best results. When choosing your treatment area, remember that it is best for the machine to avoid breathing dirty air.
Use the basic hose accessory to allow the machine to remain outside the treatment and push the ozone into the treatment area for best results. Treating clothes and individual items is relatively simple, yet complex enough that it is difficult to explain in written format. Contact us for advice prior to attempting to treat individual items with our machines.
Product recommendations: if you are only treating a handful of items within a very small treatment area, our Residential Edition is an ideal choice. If you are treating a higher volume of items or are interested in commercial strength (faster) treatments, our MaxBlaster PRO Edition is recommended. The basic hose is required in order to allow the machine to remain outside the treatment area. If you are intending on blowing ozone directly into the fabric of clothing the target hose accessory and respirator mask are required. For advice on how to use the target hose contact us.
