Hydroxyl & Ozone Generators
How a Hydroxyl Generator from ProCare Restoration Can Help Remove Odors Without Leaving your Home or Business
The Largest Advantage to the Titan Air Purification and Deodorization System is that it is 100% safe to run in inhabited areas.
The Titan is a safer alternative to ozone when it comes to air purification
and deodorization because we do not have to evacuate the treatment area to use it!
The Science of the Titan
This state-of-the-art system sends UV rays (365nm) (emitted from a TiO2 photo-catalytic lamp) through an anatase-coated glass sleeve to trap huge amounts of titanium dioxide.
Next, electron hole pairs form and react with water and oxygen, producing free electrons and hydroxyl radicals that, when dispersed by a fan, literally convert organic and inorganic gases and air pollutants into carbon dioxide and water.
Translation: Stinky air is safely neutralized and you don’t need to leave the building!

How Does Ozone Remove Odor?
One common question that people have about using ozone is exactly how an ozone machine is able to remove odors from houses, cars, clothing, etc. Basically, ozone removes odor by destroying the molecules, bacteria, and spores that cause unpleasant smells. Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive molecule and is very quick to chemically react with particles that it comes into contact with in the air and on surfaces. The extra oxygen atom in the ozone attaches itself to other molecules, chemically changing their structure to create non-offensive molecules – eliminating the smell
How our Ozone Generator Breaks Down Odor
The same process applies to bacteria and spores. With ozone attacking the outer shell of the cell causing it to break down. When the outer shell degrades, the cell itself breaks apart and dies.
With this in mind, it makes sense that a situation with stronger odor (and more odor-causing molecules or particles) requires more ozone to remove the smell – there needs to be enough ozone to react with all of the offensive molecules it encounters. This requires either A) a longer ozone treatment or B) higher concentrations of ozone (a larger ozone generator).
One common scenario involves people who have “tried everything” to get rid of a smell, but are still left with lingering scents that just don’t seem to go away. One reason that ozone is effective in these situations is because, as a gas, ozone effectively “cleans” any place that air can go. This includes air, walls, ceilings, duct-work, carpet fibers, gaps between floorboards, cracks in walls, and more. Ozone is able to penetrate into these areas and destroy odors that it finds there.
So how does ozone get rid of smells?
It chemically breaks down odor-causing molecules in any area where air is allowed to flow.
