Marijuana Odor Control
Strong smells is one of the key reasons for people getting caught. The odor from a room full of sticky bud can be quite overpowering and is very pervasive. Unless you live in an isolated location odor control should be one of your priorities. It is pointless investing time and money in the best growing kit only to have it all confiscated because of the smell. Luckily there are a number of solutions available.
Active carbon filters
The best method of removing odours is to fit an activated carbon filter to the exhaust fan with ducting. This is basically a cylinder filled with charcoal which will remove odor particles from the air. To work efficiently the air in the room should be fairly dry (below 60% relative humidity) and the air flow should be relatively slow.
It is also possible to use an air ionizer. This works by changing the charge of air molecules, attracting particles to electrodes within the ionizing unit which are then filtered out.
As you might imagine, ozone generators generate ozone. Ozone (O3) is a powerful oxidiser and reacts with airborne contaminants by oxidising them and removing their smell. They also kill many bacteria. There are a number of ozone generators on the market and they are usually measured by their ozone output or by the volume of the space they are intended for. Be sure to follow any instructions carefully.
There are also a number of domestic odor neutralizing and masking products available on the market. Use them as per the manufacturer’s instructions. These will not be as effective as a carbon filter but will still be better than using nothing at all.
