Going over your web site I see about 18 things for sale and the only warning I found was on 4 ( I might have missed some ) .

Shame on you for not giving out the truth and facts on your web site .

I am disappointed that this information is posted on the NACHI site.

Michael. Why do you readily believe random websites that claim ozone is bad? I've already stated there are hazards to using it and precautions must be taken. You've ignored those statements in favor of your own spin and you expect people to believe you. Have you ever actually used a generator? And Roy. I'm sure you're a fine inspector, but you don't know Jack S H I T about what you're taking about. Maybe there are things you don't know but are too afraid of being proved wrong.

Mike, I would like to see your evidence that commercial ozone application in a residential setting deals effectively with mold.

Ozone Pollution

It may be hard to imagine that pollution could be invisible, but ozone is. The most widespread pollutant in the U.S. is also one of the most dangerous.
Scientists have studied the effects of ozone on health for decades. Hundreds of research studies have confirmed that ozone harms people at levels currently found in the United States. In the last few years, we’ve learned that it can also be deadly.

Great string I expect many have learned a lot about the dangers of OZONE.
It might be a good idea for those who go out with their machines to contact their Insurance company and let them know what you do and if your Insurance covers you and your company.

The lung association says ALL OZONE GENERATORS should not be used .

ozone generation can be very dangerous. The hype behind the sellers of real estate property ozone fresheners are misguiding the public in my opinion.
Read up on the subject.
I have seen HI'S sell the product and approach INACHI HI'S to commit to their misguided ways.

In the hands of educated users and professional remediators, it is a useful and practical tool.

The problem is .................marketers who fool millions into believing ozone is safe for routine daily household use as an air purifier.
Please do your home work.

I wish I would have done a little more research before I invested in this. It seemed to be short - lived in our home. My wife and I seemed to get head aches and after we stopped using the system -the head aches stopped.

Just our personal experience with the Lennox model.

I used one for years when i was doing fire and flood restoration. I am not a fan. I would get headaches when I went in to turn them off. When I took my training the side affects were kinda swept under the rug. That was back in the eighties so safety was not as big of a concern. I sure hope things have changed. If you use them in an occupied space or not clear the building down to an acceptable level (I beleive it is 5%) then you are endangering lives!

I have also looked into this course in the past. I just didn't find a good reason for the investment. As a Home Inspector, I don't believe this service makes you any more professional or valuable. I wouldn't offer carpet cleaning to my clients, so why would I offer to deodorize their car? Don't these units come with a user manual? Why is a course necessary? I'm sure a little homework on the topic of Ozone can provide the needed education as Roy and Mike pointed out. The Internet is a beautiful thing

Hi Mike,

Do you have any literature on how your company is linked to the CFIA? Is the training providing a National government recognized Accredited certificate for graduates?
