Ozone Blurb



Ozone is a very reactive gas that can be generated by electronic air cleaners used in homes. These air purifying units can become contaminated with dust and, as a result, their ozone output may increase. At elevated concentrations, ozone can react with the conducting airways to reduce the ability of the lungs to cleanse themselves by destroying the ciliated epithelial tissue resulting in an asthmatic-like condition in some individuals. Further adding to respiratory problems is the fact that ozone reacts with virtually everything present in the environment including cleaning products, air freshners, perfumes, detergents, and other products normally present in a household. This reaction can result in the generation of formaldehyde and other chemicals to which sensitized individuals will react resulting in a host of respiratory problems. The report indicated below further describes this issue.
