AirTrona Offers Sanitization System to Rental Companies

AirTrona International Inc., a Canadian-based provider of ozone-based sanitation services, has created a sanitization system designed for the vehicle rental industry.

"We are all very excited at AirTrona to be challenged with the task of preventing customer complaints in the vehicle rental world concerning germs and odors,” said Jim Cairns, president of AirTrona International. “There are major concerns in the vehicle rental industry, which affect customers of all the major rental brands. Who rented the vehicle before you? How well has this vehicle been cleaned? The vehicle looks clean but has the steering wheel been wiped, or is the last renters cough or sneeze still present? What is this odor? These are all questions that go through the minds of rental customers every day.”

“An Ozone Sanitization System by AirTrona can ease the minds of these customers. AirTrona has engineered a system that meets the time-restricted, safety conscious requirements of the rental agencies. Without adding more than several seconds to the overall cleaning process of these vehicles, AirTrona can sanitize and remove unwelcome or offensive odors," adds Cairns.

Ozone is a sterilizer that dissolves mold, mildew, pollen and odors and leaves behind oxygen in the air, according to the AirTrona website.
