Although hydroxyl generators are relatively new technology, companies and people have always looked to the future for simpler, safer, more effective ways of handling disaster remediation jobs. Almost every job consists of an unpleasant odor or an issue that produces an odor. Most of the jobs that are generated by mother nature consist of either fire disaster or some form of mold due to the increase in humidity or flooding that has happened. Once a property has one of these two issues it usually takes a well trained and certified company to fully restore the property to pre-disaster status.

It takes no more than a small leak or small fire ash to cause severe damage to a dwelling. Without any remorse a small issue quickly turns into a disaster. A fire will cause a very strong burnt smell to permeate through the entire structure. A small leak will quickly fill an area with many inches of water that will soon create a breeding ground for mold as well as bacteria. There are a few methods to dealing with these issues. An ozone shock treatment is the process that has been most frequently used. Setting up a containment area, removing all living beings from that area, and then doing an ozone shock treatment for quick results. The only downfall with using an ozone generator is the homeowner or business has to leave or be shut down for the time being. This is where a Hydroxyl generator comes in very useful.

Hydroxyl generators produce a highly reactive molecule from water vapor that oxidize foul odors and quickly removes unwanted issues in the air. The hydroxyl generator first hit the market in the summer of 2006 by International Ozone Tech Group and the Titan 4000 quickly became the most used tool for decontaminating as well as deodorizing occupied restoration projects. Since then there has been success associated with the Titan line of hydroxyl generators for dealing with bio clean up, fire disasters, mold and mildew issues, as well as issues dealing with off gassing from new construction.

Contractors have chosen to use hydroxyl radical generators, do to the benefits of being able to keep the homeowner in their houses while the restoration project is being restored. Since the insurance company doesn’t have to pay for a homeowner to sleep in a hotel while their house is being restored, the insurance company will easily pay for multiple hydroxyl generators up to $225.00 each per day.
