It isn’t easy to remove odors from a car or truck. One of the most frustrating aspects of purchasing a used car is when you detect cigarette smoke, pet odors, puke/vomit odors or other lingering smells. Some people will try to eliminate or mask unpleasant odors with sprays or deodorizers. Those treatments often fail. Many strong odors are nearly impossible to remove and require a professional’s touch to eliminate them.

Car Odor Removal Service

How to get smoke smell out of car? At Outshine Detail, we use a powerful one-two punch to remove odors: an ozone generator followed up with enzymes that break up the sources and mitigate the smells. Our approach works like no other on cigarette smoke, pet accidents, vomit, urine, mold, mildew, and protein-based liquids.

Ozone treatment, usually combined with car interior detailing, can permanently kill the root cause of the odors. Ozone treatment is the most powerful and environmentally friendly method to get your car smelling fresh again.

How Our Ozone Machine Works To Remove Odors

After we detail and thoroughly dry the interior of your car we place the ozone generator inside your vehicle for short intervals of 1-3 hours, depending on the severity of the odor.

Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring form of oxygen (O2) with three atoms instead of regular oxygen’s two. In the upper atmosphere, ozone filters out harmful rays from the sun, allowing life to exist on earth. Closer to home, ozone is produced by lightning and ultraviolet light from the sun. If you’ve experienced the freshness of the air after a thunderstorm, you’ve smelled ozone.

Ozone is very unstable, with an average half-life of 20 minutes. It must, therefore, be produced at the point of use, rather than stored in a container. It works to eliminate odors by casting off its third oxygen atom onto any other organic element, oxidizing the other element or converting it to a different substance.

In the case of chemical or organic odors, ozone converts foul-smelling substances into non-odorous substances naturally, with no artificial or unhealthy chemicals to buy, store, or use. It also deactivates and destroys molds, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mildew. Then, once the job is done, ozone converts back to oxygen.

Ozone is unparalleled in its ability to effectively remove odors. Due to the nature of the treatment, however, no one can completely guarantee its effectiveness. The gas cannot completely penetrate carpet padding, headrests, or seat stuffing. With that being said, we still highly recommend the odor removal process for the best results at keeping the interior of your vehicle as fresh as possible
