Healthy Air Healthy Spaces

Clean air is critical to creating healthy indoor environments.

COVID-19 is an Airborne Threat

Experts agree: Using air purifiers with true HEPA filtration reduces the threat of transmission.

“Respiratory aerosols can accumulate indoors in rooms with low ventilation or poor filtration.” – Lancet COVID-19 Commission, March 2021

“The Virus can remain supended in the air for up to 3 hours.” – New England Jounal of Medicine, May 2020

“Portable HEPA air cleaners can reduce exposure to simulated SARS-CoV-2 aerosols in indoor environments.” – CDC, July 2021

How Viruses Spread Through The Air

Global Healthcare professionals and virologists have proven aerasol transmission of viruses remain airborne for long periods.

A person can become infected through direct contact with a person or object carrying the virus.

By air, with two transmission methods:

Airborne transmission via large droplets
(> 10 microns) when people cough or sneeze (3-6ft risk)

Airborne transmission through small particles

(<5 microns) also generated by coughing/sneezing/talking

A Complete Hygiene Solution

A proactive approach must consist of three essential components for protection against virus transmission in shared environments.

Washing Your Hands

Sanitizing Surfaces

Cleaning The Air

We Need to Clean the Air

ASHRAE, the world’s largest association dedicated to the subject of ventilation and air quality (HVAC), published a statement regarding transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and the operation of HVAC systems during  the COVID-19 pandemic which opened with:
“Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled.”

It Doesn't Stop at Viruses

The average person inhales 3,000 gallons of indoor air every day, with most people spending 90% of their time indoors and nine hours per day in shared environments—spaces that are up to five times more polluted than outdoors.


The presence of odors can reflect negatively on your facility.

Odors from bathrooms, lunch rooms, stale air and more are primary complaint drivers for building managers.


Experts agree that the flu virus is mainly spread through airborne droplets.

These droplets are made when people cough, sneeze or talk. Despite flu shots and hand sanitization, Americans still catch about one billion colds and 60 million flu cases annually, partly because the flu virus is inhaled.


Approximately 20% of all people are impacted with allergies.

Allergic reactions can be triggered by irritants such as:

  • Seasonal pollen/ragweed
  • Mold
  • Pet dander
  • Dust mites

These irritants also result in respiratory issues for those with asthma, which impacts 1 out of every 10 children.


Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are harmful chemicals emitted from everyday products.

Paints, cleaning supplies, office equipment and more can contain VOCs and trigger headaches, asthma and allergy attacks. Other airborne contaminants include:

  • Mold spores
  • Pet odors and dander
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Fine air pollution
  • Bacteria
  • Smog

We spend 90% of our time indoors.

Indoor Air Matters

We spend 90% of our time indoors and nine hours every day sharing spaces with others.

While we don’t usually give much thought to indoor air quality, we should. The air we breathe indoors is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air.

Public spaces, like offices, health care facilities and schools are breeding grounds for bacteria, viruses, dust and allergens, and harsh chemicals and odors.

While we all recognize the need to wash our hands and clean common surfaces like doors, tabletops, bathrooms, etc., it’s not enough. We need to clean the air. Why?

Americans get 1 billion colds and 60 million flu cases each year.

Respiratory illness—colds, flu, allergies and asthma—is the #1 reason for doctor visits each year.

Flu can spread to others up to 6’ away

Flu can spread to others up to 6’ away—mainly by droplets from coughing, sneezing or talking and can live in the air for several hours.

Bad air impacts the bottom line.

$220 billion dollars evaporates from the economy every year in lost productivity from sick days.

Do you have a sick building? Clean the air for a cleaner facility with AeraMax Professional air purifier.

In fact the EPA estimates that Sick Building Syndrome alone is responsible for $60 billion in lost revenue.

Sick employees cost employers an average of $2,650 per day over the course of a year.

The average cost of sick days is $2650 per employee per year.
