Ozone Laundry Systems: Facts vs. Fallacy (part 1)

Be the First to Comment

Having served in the development of the Ozone Laundry Industry for 20 years, it gives me great satisfaction to see gaining popularity of the use of Ozone in On Premise Laundries. The Hotel industry is pushing to be “Green” by reducing their usage of Natural Gas. MRSA and Staph infections are increasing in Health Care facilities. Through into the mix, the reports of how Ozone will kill most viruses and bacteria’s, by washing with cold ozonated water, it is not surprising that these facilities are rushing to implement ozone use in their laundries.


Ozone is the strongest reproducible sanitizer known to man. It is used primarily in cold water washes, thus reducing the usage of natural gas. Ozone is a natural bleaching agent that opens up the weave of fibers to make them softer. It helps moisture to evaporate faster in the drying process, and can lengthen the life of the linen. With all these attributes, it is no wonder that men have been trying to perfect this “Science” in laundries for over two decades. There have been many success stories, and but also, many failures with ozone. Some of the early problems were directly related to the technology at the time, others were from not understanding the product.

There are many trained professionals selling the proper use of ozone by not overstating what ozone can do for your laundry. However, for every ozone expert in the field that has a good working knowledge of the product, there are many more that mislead the customers with promises that simply cannot be substantiated.

In this series, we will cover many aspects of ozone laundry and use our experience to set some of these facts or fallacies straight.
