Problems in the Building Restoration Industry
When it comes to property damage restoration, remediation and cleaning services, there are several challenges to effectively accomplishing these tasks. Removing the many types of fungi and mold including Candida albicans, Cladosporium sp., Aspergillus species, Aureobasidium sp., Penicillium brevicompactum can be very costly and is especially difficult.
In many cases the infected building materials need to be replaced and in more serious infestations, demolition of the building is required. Fungi and mold are difficult to eradicate even after the removal of moist or wet building materials because the fungi / bacteria tend to propagate in inaccessible areas. The spores also remain behind and germinate after treatment. And in the warmer, moister southern climates this becomes an even bigger challenge.
Standard Use of Ozone
Although ozone is currently used in the building restoration industry, the way it employed has drawbacks. This is due in part to the lack of research into the proper application of ozone in terms of humidity and ozone levels. It also presents a danger because there’s no catalytic converter or safety mechanisms.
The Solution: ViroForce 1000
Research studies have shown that ViroForce 1000 can kill 99.99% of all fungi and mould in a treated space. Since it is a gas, it sanitizes both hard and soft surfaces and inaccessible areas. It’s the perfect solution for use in sanitizing infected buildings.
Omega’s ViroForce 1000 is a mobile automated disinfecting device using ozone gas made from ambient air. It has a 30 minute turnaround time per average-sized room. After treatment, the room or public space is 99.99% sanitized from fungi and mould and can be safely re-occupied with no adverse effects on materials or occupants. Providing these clean-up services is greatly simplified and the sanitizing effectiveness is enhanced with ViroForce 1000.
Viroforce: Odor Elimination Technology
The ViroForce cutting edge technology is designed to safely remove odor-causing molecules, as well. Odors caused by smoking, alcohol, fire and from building maintenance chemicals can be rapidly and permanently removed from a room. For example use of the powerful Viroforce technology permanently removes odors from a standard ocean cruise line cabin in 10 minutes including the conversion of ozone back into oxygen.
