Hydroxyl Generators

The hydroxyl radical, OH, is the neutral form of the hydroxide ion (OH–). Hydroxyl radicals are short-lived with an average half-life of less than two seconds and are diatomic molecules that are highly reactive.

Hydroxyls are naturally formed by the reaction of UV light from the sun disassembling water vapor (H20) to get a hydrogen atom and oxygen (O2) to get an oxygen atom which are combined together to form the hydroxyl radical (*OH).

All hydroxyl generators currently used in the restoration industry incorporate some form of UV light in their process.

The most preferred and safest technology, which was developed with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) utilizes UVC light in the 254nm wavelength to excite nano sized particles of Titanium Dioxide to generate hydroxyl radicals. This process has been deemed safe by NASA, it has been used in the Space Station, and also certified by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) as a Type 2 Medical Device that is approved for use in hospitals and to include neonatal and baby wards.

Three things to consider with Hydroxyl Generator Use: High Volume of Air Movement (to remove particles quickly and at a high distance), Moisture/Humidity (the higher the humidity, the better/quicker the generator will do the deodorization), Filtration (to help remove the oxidized particles and microbes from the air in the treatment area).

The main benefit of using a true hydroxyl generator is that they are safe to use in occupied areas.

Hydroxyl generators with good filtration are excellent for airborne microbial remediation where bacteria or fungi have become aerosolized.
Hydroxyl generators have been successfully tested on fires jobs, flood jobs, dead body jobs, skunk odors, pet urine odors, musty odors and many types of VOC odors.

Hydroxyl generators are not intended for use on mold remediation jobs where there is a large infestation.

Things to consider:
Hydroxyls will not go through drywall or brick walls.
No hydroxyl generator can produce hydroxyls that will last longer than two seconds.
Hydroxyl deodorization will benefit from over-pressurization.
True hydroxyl generators will not affect any materials in the home or business.
