Safest ways to use ozone geneator

The safest way to use ozone generators is in a space that is unoccupied. Ascertain that there are no humans or animals in the house and remove all indoor plants before starting the ozone machine.

In some cases, ozone machines can be safely used at home in low concentrations and safe levels as specified by OSHA or the EPA. This includes lesser requirements like sanitizing the air for breathing, get rid of smoke from cooking or to remove cigarette smoke. Such a space can still be occupied while the machine is being used. However, that cannot be done when high ozone concentration is required such as for killing mold in the house. 

Keep the ozone generator in a usable and safe condition, carry out regular maintenance such as cleaning its collector plate at an interval of 2 – 6 months. Also, avoid running the generator in an environment with high humidity. Moisture can cause arcing inside the ozone machine.

After the sterilization process is finished, do leave the doors and windows opened for ozone to dissipate. It takes about 30 minutes to 3 hours for ozone to dissipate back into oxygen.
