How to Zap Litter Box Odor

A7K Air Applications Air-7000 Apartment Odor Home Odor Pet Odor

We love our cats. But one of the things that sometimes make loving them hard is the odor from their litter box. Even with regular cleaning, the litter box leaves a distinct ammonia-like odor in your home. It leaves smells on your furniture, in your clothes, and everywhere else. Don’t let the first thing your guests recognize be your cat stink. It’s easy to remove odors for good with an ozone generator.

This can be done a couple of ways depending on where the smell is. You can either treat the room where you keep your litter box or the whole house. Both are even better. For this application, we recommend our A7K or Air-7000 units.

For single-room treatment:

  • Place the unit into the impacted room and turn the unit on full power while selecting the appropriate time setting on your unit.
Room Size Estimated Time:
Large Sized Room: 3 to 4 hours
Medium Sized Room: 1 to 2 hours
Small Room or Closet: 30 minutes to 1 hour

Be sure to leave the room immediately after your unit begins producing ozone and only return to the room once the ozone has dissipated.


You can also treat the whole house using the AC method:

  • To begin this method, determine where the air return vent is on the heating and cooling system.
  • Remove the filter and turn the AC fan ON.
  • Place the unit in front of or near the return vent.
  • Set the unit for a 4-hour cycle and immediately exit the building.

It will be safe to return to the building at a minimum of 4.5 hours later, but we recommend returning 5 hours later or longer.

Keep in mind, the half-life of ozone is 30 minutes.

If the smell of ozone is still strong after this amount of time has passed, open windows to air out the building.


When operating an ozone generator, please remember to remove people, pets, and plants from the area. Be sure to leave the area being treated immediately and only return once the ozone has dissipated. Under most conditions, the treated area should be safe to return to 30 minutes to 1 hour after the unit stops producing ozone. Treated spaces or buildings should be well-ventilated prior to re-entry.
In case of accidental leakage of ozone, keep the ozone generator in a 
well- ventilated area. 
Ozone generators emit ozone. Do not inhale ozone. 
Ozone generators generate high voltage.
