60 Minutes Highlights the Importance of Clean Indoor Air in Preventing the Spread of Infections

This weekend’s 60 Minutes feature included a story on how indoor air ventilation and filtration systems are “absolutely key” in curbing the spread of viruses, especially with the knowledge we now have post pandemic.

Air quality scientists say that from the start of the pandemic, improving indoor air quality (IAQ) was heavily overlooked, which resulted in the rapid spread of COVID.

Now, companies operating commercial buildings are more aware of the importance of IAQ and are looking for ways to improve their HVAC systems and IAQ management strategies to create state-of-the-art air quality controls. Old buildings can be healthy buildings – with the right improvements.

With the COVID-19 virus remaining an ongoing concern, coupled with the start of flu season, aerosol researchers say there needs to be a continued focus on improving the quality of the air we all breathe while indoors. The segment concludes by emphasizing that proper air quality is not only good for the health of the building occupants but can be good for the health of the companies, too.
