In a recent article published on the EMLAB P&K bacterial and mold lab testing website, the reasons why Ozone remediation in properties is flawed were outlined by Dr. Harriet Burge. The following is a list of fundamental reasons as to why the ozone medium isn't recommended for mold resolution:
1. No single peer-reviewed, academic study supports the notion of using ozone technology for mold remediation.
2. Although higher levels of ozone have been shown to reduce levels of fungi, these concentrations also have the ability to damage building contents.
3. Ozoning has been shown to reduce fungi levels on hard surfaces, and to be much less effective on porous surfaces. This is an issue since a lot of mold issues are present on porous materials, such as drywall.
4. The use of the ozone technique can create a separate air quality issue in the property and potentially be hazardous to occupants and workers.
