Like many parents, I have grappled with the unpleasant odor and cleanliness of my children’s sports equipment. I have had concerns related to biological pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, fungi. Also bacteria that could lead to MRSA/Staph, Flesh eating bacteria (Necrotizing Fasciitis), E. coli O157:H7, and C. difficile and others. Did I mention the smell? Football, Hockey, Lacrosse equipment, etc. I have tried numerous chemical cleaning methods and found them to be incomplete, difficult, time consuming and I never wanted harsh and harmful chemical residue near my child’s skin.

All Star Sanitize uses O3. O3, Ozone, sometimes called “activated oxygen”, is a gas that contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms we normally breathe. Ozone is one of the most  powerful sterilants in the world and destroys bacteria, viruses and odors. Ozone is 3,000 times faster than Chlorine bleach and over 1000 times more powerful. Interestingly Ozone occurs readily in nature, most often as a result of lightning strikes that occur during thunderstorms. The “fresh, clean, post rain” smell that we notice after a storm most often results from nature’s creation of Ozone. However, we are probably most familiar with ozone from reading about the “Ozone layer” that circles the planet above the earth’s atmosphere. O3 is a broad based sanitizer capable of eliminating biological pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. O3 is often used as a safe (FDA approved) but very powerful disinfectant.  All Star Sanitize’s Ozone Sanitize Treatment process is a “100% dry process” that uses Ozone gas combined with a special custom sealed chamber that holds the equipment to disinfect all equipment rapidly and effectively. Our process is 100% green, safe and no chemical residue.

One of the first distinctions to understand is that “Cleaning is not Sanitizing.” The EPA states that sanitizers must stay on the surface for 2-8 minutes to kill most germs. With topical cleaning methods, this never happens! Sanitizing, like the services that All Star Sanitize provides, is a level above ordinary cleaning, and is a better ways to stop the spread of diseases by attacking bacteria and virus where they live.

Infections and Sports

The same Ozone Shock Technology that All Star Sanitize uses is used today by many NFL and NHL Teams to disinfect equipment, facilities and locker rooms.

Frequently Asked Questions
(Q) What does it smell like when the equipment is disinfected via Ozone Shock?
(A) It depends, most of the time our Ozone Treatment leaves no smell on equipment at all. Other times it might leave a faint “Light Chorine”, “Light Pool Locker Room” or “the air outside after a thunderstorm”. The smell dissipates usually over a few hours. Solely at the customer’s request, we can add an additional lavender topical scented ALL NATURAL fabric refresher / deodorizer at no additional cost to pad surfaces. This topical application adds additional active enzymes that help fight and inhibit bacteria regrowth (While all natural and safe, this does add a natural chemical and scent.)

(Q) Will the smell return?
(A) As the youth uses the equipment new odor causing bacteria and/or fungi can be generated. Not to mention they could come in contact with viruses and/or bacteria. We recommend at a minimum that equipment be treated once a month to keep odor down and provide some level of bacteria, virus and fungi remediation. We have many parents that treat equipment more often, especially in situations were other players have reported issues (infections, viruses, bacterial out breaks, etc.)

(Q) Does a single shock treatment 100% remedy the poor smell every time?
(A) Not 100% every time, but a large percentage of it! Sometimes it might take a couple treatments to fully disinfect equipment over time because of moisture trapped in the fabric that acts as a “barrier” to our Ozone Treatment (water is a barrier for air). Cleats and Skates often take a few treatments over time. For really “stinky” equipment we advise customers to insure all equipment is dry before having it treated. Solely at the customer’s request, we can add an additional lavender topical scented ALL NATURAL fabric refresher/deodorizer at no additional cost to pad surfaces. This topical application adds additional active enzymes that help fight and inhibit bacteria regrowth (While all natural and safe, this does add a natural chemical and scent.)
