Are Ozone Laundry Machines Safe?

Table of Contents

In the realm of commercial laundry, ensuring the safety of your equipment and the quality of your results is of utmost importance. This brings us to a vital question: Are ozone laundry machines safe? Over the past two decades, our unwavering commitment to efficiency and reliability has made us a trusted name in the industry. Today, we’ll explore the world of ozone laundry technology to address this question comprehensively.

What is Ozone?

Ozone is a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms (O3). It is a powerful oxidant, and, most importantly, it is 100% safe. We have been supplying ozone laundry equipment for two decades, and knock on wood, we’ve never encountered a single problem with its safety.

Ozone’s remarkable cleaning power is its claim to fame. It effectively disinfects laundry, eliminating stubborn microbes such as Staph, MRSA, and C. difficile (commonly referred to as “Superbugs”). Independent laboratory tests have verified its disinfection capabilities, reassuring users of its effectiveness.

How Does Ozone Help Clean Laundry?

Ozone doesn’t just stop at disinfection; it goes the extra mile. One of the most remarkable aspects of ozone is its ability to provide a fresh, clean scent to laundry. When you experience this wonderful, refreshing aroma, it’s hard to convey its impact until you’ve personally witnessed it. We have seen ozone work its magic in places like nursing homes, where lingering odors from linens can be a persistent issue. Ozone makes that problem disappear, leaving behind nothing but a clean, pleasant scent.

Laundromats are also embracing ozone technology for its ability to enhance customer satisfaction. When customers unload their laundry, they know it’s not just clean but also disinfected and pleasantly scented. Moreover, ozone aids in cleaning by breaking down soils and helping detergents lift and remove them. The end result? Customers enjoy a wonderful laundry experience, knowing that their clothes are not only clean but also free from potential contaminants like the infamous COVID-19 virus.

How is Ozone Injected into the Laundry?

Ozone is introduced into washing machines using two main methods, and both have their advantages. The first method, which we prefer, is direct injection. Here, ozone is injected directly into the washing machine’s sump, where it mixes with water and laundry. We maintain the ozone concentration at about one part per million, ensuring safe and effective disinfection.

The second method involves injecting ozone through a Venturi system, which dissolves ozone into water. This ozone-infused water is then introduced into the wash wheel. Both methods can be effective, but the choice often comes down to preference and ease of application. Our preference for direct injection is due to its simplicity and reliability.

The Environmental Impact

One of the remarkable aspects of ozone is that it leaves no harmful byproducts. When ozone is used, it ultimately reverts back to oxygen (O2), leaving behind no chemical residues. Even when ozone-infused water is drained, it helps combat sewer smells and cleans pits, eliminating foul odors. This is particularly beneficial for laundromats and facilities with drain pits where unpleasant odors can sometimes become an issue.


So, are ozone laundry machines safe? Absolutely, we can confidently affirm that they are. Ozone laundry technology offers a safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly solution for all your laundry needs.
