Ozone water washing: the sustainable secret of cleaner, softer and more durable laundry.
The only Laundry in Town with EVERY WASH SANITIZED On Every Load
As you can see, ozone washing has many advantages over traditional washing. Not only will your laundry be cleaner, softer, smell better and last longer - reducing the use of chemicals, water and energy means you are doing a favor for the environment!
Queen Wash Laundry is proud to go beyond basic sanitation to bring you ozone-rich laundry.
If you're worried about how well laundries disinfect your laundry or you are irritated by dull, hard fabrics or a persistent odor. Try an ozone wash in one of the three Queen Wash coin-operated laundry machines currently offering ozone:
Do you still do your laundry the way your parents first taught you?
If so, you may not be as good about your clothes (or the environment) as you could.
Many people think that in order to properly wash your laundry, you need hot water, a lot of detergent, and a long wash time. And it was once true. But over the years, there have been great advances in laundry technology, including the development of ozone washing systems.
Ozone washing is a gentler and more efficient way of washing your laundry. It is also a more environmentally friendly choice. If you have ever wondered where in luxury hotels such bright linens and fluffy towels come from, even after serving thousands of guests. The secret is ozone flushing!
Wondering what ozone can do for your family's laundry? Below is an overview of how ozone laundry works and why it is one of the best ways to wash your laundry, and how Queen Wash Laundry can help you experience the difference in ozone!
How does ozone wash work?
Ozone flushing is a revolutionary washing process that uses a powerful oxidizing gas called ozone. Ozone wash systems create ozone by combining oxygen and electricity. The ozone is then dissolved in the wash water.
When ozone water comes in contact with organic materials in your wash, it destroys (or "oxidizes") them. This includes bacteria, viruses, mold, or other microorganisms. Ozone also degrades many inorganic materials, including soils and fats. This makes it easier to remove these stains from your laundry and wash them.
What are the benefits of flushing with ozone water?
Ozone washing has many advantages over traditional washing. Even washing in hot water does not give such results! Here are some scientific reasons why ozone flushing is the best washing method.
Ozone wash cleans and disinfects laundry better
The whole point of washing is to cleanse your clothes and bedding - and in this regard, ozone washing works much better than traditional washing!
Ozone is such a powerful oxidizing agent that it kills microorganisms 3,000 times faster than bleach. This means that ozone flushing can help protect you and your family from bacteria, viruses, and mold that cause disease and skin problems. And it doesn't even require hot water or harsh chemicals! In fact, ozone works best in cold water.
As an illustration, researchers in one UK study tested how well ozone kills 12 different strains of bacteria compared to hot water. The hot water rinse was completed at 75 ° C (167 ° F) (4 ° C higher than the UK recommended disinfection temperature). The researchers found that 3 strains of bacteria remained even after 15 minutes of washing with hot water. But after only three minutes of ozone flushing, no bacteria were present!
Other scientific studies have also shown the power of ozone. In one study, it took just 2.5 minutes of exposure to ozone to kill spores of C. difficile, a common bacteria. Another study found no trace of E. coli, another common bacterium, after just one dose of ozone. And another study showed that MRSA (Staphylococcus bacteria) were completely destroyed after the ozone wash, but were still present after the hot water wash.
Ozone laundry is so good at disinfecting that hospitals, nursing homes and similar institutions that often fight hard-to-kill "superbugs" (including C. difficile and MRSA) have adopted ozone rinsing systems.
Ozone wash improves the smell of the laundry and makes it softer
Ozone's Queen Wash oxidizing power provides another benefit - it is a powerful deodorant. Soiled laundry odors are usually caused by certain organic and inorganic compounds. Ozone breaks down the molecular bonds of these compounds. Result? Fresh clean smell!
Ozone also improves the softness of the laundry. This is because it removes calcium, magnesium and other substances that affect water hardness. Softer water makes the fabric softer to the touch, as it lathers better and rinses off more thoroughly.
Scientific studies have documented the effect of ozone washing on fabric smell and feel. For example, one study at a hospital in Scotland compared a traditional flush system to an ozone flush system. Not only was washing with ozone disinfected more efficiently, but all staff indicated that their clothes were softer and had a more pleasant fresh scent.
Ozone wash extends the life of your fabrics
Ozone is such a powerful cleaning agent that it produces great results at lower temperatures, shorter wash cycles and fewer chemicals. Ozone also converts back to oxygen after use, leaving no chemical residue on the laundry. One study even found that washing with ozone removes moisture from laundry much better than regular washing, which means less drying time.
All this means that ozone is a much more gentle way of washing clothes. By switching to ozone, your fabrics and bedding will wear less and last much longer!
Ozone wash is more environmentally friendly
Another major benefit of ozone is that it is a greener option.
As noted above, ozone washing does not require hot water, which means it uses less energy. In addition, fewer chemicals are required for effective cleaning and disinfection, which means less rinse water is required and fewer chemicals are discharged into the environment with wastewater.
Although ozone is discharged with wastewater during the ozone washing process, ozone can be considered a "green" substance. This is due to the fact that if dissolved ozone remains in the waste water contained in the wash, it is quickly converted to oxygen.
Oxygen in wastewater can actually be beneficial because it helps break down organic matter and aids in the wastewater treatment process. When ozone oxidizes organic contaminants in your laundry, these oxidized materials also become more readily biodegradable.
Ozone wash is much better for the environment compared to traditional wash.
