That means you get a blog post on ozone generators.
I had a few questions about them. For one thing, do they rely on consumable inputs. This essay suggests they have a filter to keep dust out of the reaction chamber but other than that, all they use is dry air.
The next thought I had was that I would definitely buy one the next time Ebola is documented as being present in Mexico, the US or Canada.
My third thought was that investing in manufacturers of ozone generators (and UV emitting diodes) would be a good investment play if/when the day comes.
Ozone has the same issues other disinfectants have with particulate contamination. It takes time to penetrate and the disinfectant loses potency as it reacts with materials in the particle or thick layers of contamination.
Ozone can also play hob with dyes and polymers. Ozone also will beat the snot out of lung tissue if you are in the room.
The upside is that you can put an ozone generator in a room and diffusion is your friend. It will throw into every crack and behind every surface. You are not forced to rely on the work ethic of the people you hired.
