It’s a beautiful winter day. The sun is shining and the weather is crisp. You grab your family, load up the SUV and spend the afternoon at the skating rink. After hours of laughing together, you peel off the skates and toss them in the back of the vehicle. They need a deep clean to stay fresh and help kill odor causing bacteria.
Enter Nutroz: an ozone unit built to eliminate odors and kill bacteria such as S. aureus and E. coli from hard surfaces to ensure pure peace of mind.
How ozone units help kill bacteria on hard surfaces
Killing bacteria is easy with an ozone unit. Simply drop your items into the unit, close the lid and turn it on. The electricity works with oxygen in the air to create ozone. When bacteria collide with ozone, a chemical reaction known as oxidation occurs.
Oxidation is a powerful antimicrobial agent that works by destroying the structure of the target molecule. Because of their versatility, oxidation applications are used in several commercial and industrial settings, such as:
Nutroz brings the power of oxidation to you in a portable, easy-to-use unit. Nutroz effectively deodorizes and refreshes while removing 99 percent of E. coli and 90 percent of S. aureus1.
What is S. aureus and why is it so prevalent with sports gear?
More commonly known as staph, S. aureus is “one of the most important bacteria that cause disease in humans,” according to the Minnesota Department of Health.
S. aureus is found on human skin, particularly in the nose, armpits and groin areas. The bacteria are transmitted through touching infected blood or bodily fluids and can be spread by sharing equipment and through touch via contaminated hands. The bacteria thrive in warm and humid environments and can be found in sporting gear, according to a report from the University of Rochester Medical Center.
What is E. coli?
Escherichia coli, or E. coli, are a diverse group of bacteria often found in the intestines of people and animals. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say most strains of E. coli are harmless, STEC, also known as Shiga toxin-producing E. coli can cause severe illness.
E. coli is transmitted through contaminated animal and plant foods. While the bacteria are killed by properly heating food, the World Health Organization (WHO) warns cross-contamination during food preparation can also cause infection.
Pure peace of mind
Our innovative, portable ozone unit is proudly made in North America and has been rigorously tested to eliminate odor while removing 99 percent of E. coli bacteria and 90 percent S. aureus on hard surfaces. So you can rest easy knowing that you’re doing your best when it comes to taking care of yourself and your family.
Looking for a natural solution to kill odor-causing bacteria in your home? Nutroz is a lightweight and portable way to unlock the power of oxidation through ozone.1(Tested on a glass surface. Applies only when 100% of items inside Nutroz are non-porous and pre-cleaned to remove gross soilage).
