Safety of ozone generators
Hello. I hope this is the right place.
A few days ago I purchased a nice sectional off craigslist that belonged to a smoker (I bought it because it's very nice and expensive but was cheap for that reason).
I hired a professional cleaner who gave it an initial treatment that helped but there is still a smoke smell left. He has left me his Ozone generator for a week while he's on vacation. I believe this is the same model: https://www.activtek.net/CatalogProd...uctId=US50105B
I live in a ~900 square foot 1bedroom apartment and I have two cats. He told me that it was fine for me to run this generator while we're all inside. I double checked that online and I'm finding reports that these can be quite harmful.
First, would using it for a few hours each day for a week cause any problems? Or is the danger of these machines something that happens after prolonged exposure?
Do I need to run this while my cats and I are not inside? If so, how long do I need to stay outside after turning off the generator?
I had planned on keeping my cats outside on my porch while I ran the generator for a few hours each day but my cats are inside cats so they freak out when I tried to keep them outside. I'm interested in learning if the cleaner was correct and that minimal exposure over just one week is truly harmless.

Ozone isn't something to mess with. Guidance note EH38 from the UK Health and Safety Executive (from http://www.coronasupplies.co.uk/down...20Measures.pdf) says:
