HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — OXXO® Care Cleaners employs ozone and UV treatment for clothes cleaning to eliminate odors and germs, according to the company.

The company states that it introduced ozone and UV into its operations in late 2019 to tackle persistent odors and germs on challenging items of clothing, such as gym wear.

The firm states that the techniques used to eliminate bacteria, fungi, and protozoa in clothing also deactivate viruses, which is fortunate.

According to Salomon Mishaan, CEO of OXXO Care Cleaners, they initially employed ozone and UV for gym clothes, but now they find it particularly significant in alleviating concerns and thoroughly cleaning clothes amidst the current outbreak situation.

According to Mishaan, “Given the severity of COVID-19, we are treating the situation very seriously and believe that this solution is particularly timely. Our clients can be confident that their garments will return more sanitized than ever before.”

According to the company, ozone (O3), which is composed of three oxygen atoms, has been utilized for sterilizing objects and environments for decades. This is not surprising, as ozone is in the same chemical family as chlorine. However, unlike chlorine, ozone does not leave behind toxic chemical residues.

According to the company, “Ozone disrupts the chemical bonds that form molecules responsible for creating odors, including smoke, mildew, decay, gasoline, and even skunk scent.”

OXXO notes that to meet environmental objectives, it combines its 100% eco-friendly Green Earth® Cleaning silicone cleaning process with cutting-edge equipment that is completely safe for clothing.
