Ozone generators

How much damage can occur from improper use of ozone generators?in particular to the structure and HVAC components . Does humidity and/ or temperature effect the potency of ozone?We have visible damage to shoes, blankets, plastic items and a very offensive chemical smell . How long will this terrible odor linger ? It has been 2 1/2 years and home still reeks.

Some thing sounds strange here .
I do not think we are getting the full story.
Asking this question after two years ,I wonder have you been reading any info on
Ozone generators??? .
I understand they are banned in Canada.
