There are those who boast that ozone will kill insects. This is partially true and partially false. To be clear, ozone is not a great pesticide concept unless applied at very high saturation levels. Nonetheless, there are plenty of field reports of dead cockroaches and spiders after a strong ozone treatment.
While most ozone websites are promoting their products, the National Ozone Association was started by a dozen well-proven ozone service experts who saw the need for an organization that could eventually set standards and form a network of professional remediation services.

Oxygen, oxy, and ozone are in the same family that uses extra oxygen atoms to solve problems.
As the sun sets on COVID-19 and the working world stumbles out of the cave of despair and into the light of a new day, the question is what opportunities lie ahead instead of what was left behind. That is to say, the next phase of life can be new open doors that we had not considered before.
In 2020, the National Ozone Association offers a new, efficient course from non-professionals. With the availability of ozone generators everywhere online, we felt it necessary to step into a cloud of confusing claims and hype.
