    Just what does it do exactly? Is it dangerous? Would you use it in your own home? What are the uses?

    I wouldn't use an Ozone. There are other methods to turn to depending on the odor.

    If you have Ozone running you can't have anything living in the home.

    Depends on the odor and the source. I prefer to use OdorKlenz-Air filter in an AFD. So far I haven't had any problems with it and it works very fast.

    I take it these hook right up to the face of the dehu where the filter is presently? I use my dehus in my rug shop to facilitate dry times. Be interesting to see if they helped.

    The ones that hook into the dehu's are a little different then the ones that hook into the AFD. I'm not sure how the dehu filter performs since I haven't used it.

    Having a ozone in a water damage leaves you at risk for H2O2 right?

    Nothing like responding to a post that's a year old :) Mblue is right on. The nano deodorization CLN DODNAN works great at $.06/cbft. The hydroxyl generators CLN DODHY at approx. $200/day work great as well. Vapor sharks just mask the odor, where as nano and hydroxyl remove it.

    We tried them years ago when they first came into vogue. Water damage is too fast a turn around, people live in the home or are coming back to it quickly. It just was never a good option in our opinion.
