It is not just the smell of sweaty gear that may be bothersome but the underlying danger of microbial contamination that could pose serious health risks for athletes. “That smell” is caused by sweat, blood and dirt that have soaked into the equipment - a mix of proteins and organic matter that is the ideal breeding ground for the growth of bacteria and fungus. The athletes are then exposed as these pathogens enter the body through cuts and abrasions leading to potentially serious infections.

The transmission rates of staph and MRSA are facilitated by close personal contact of the players and the frequent skin injuries that occur with many sporting activities. Failure to cover wounds adequately, sharing of sports equipment and towels and lack of cleanliness of shower and change room facilities and gear also rate as contributing factors.

Our Ozone Purification Treatment will effectively eliminate 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses and microbial contamination and destroy all offending odours accumulated from years of hard play, without erasing any of the proud stains immortalized into your equipment.

The use of ozone is becoming commonplace at the elite sporting levels but we feel this service should be available to every player on every team. 
The best prevention from these infections include regular ozone treatments of equipment and locker room facilities and commonsense practices like proper hygiene techniques and covering wounds before playing.

Please contact us to find out more about our team or group rates as well as quotes for any sporting facilities.
