The Rapid Global Spread Of Covid-19 has increased our urgency to protect ourselves and each other. Healthy and safe facilities matter now, more than ever.
The Airborne Threat is Real
Global healthcare experts and virologists agree: airborne, aerosol transmission of viruses poses a significant threat.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that COVID-19 can travel up to 13 feet in the air 1
The New England Journal of Medicine reported the virus can remain suspended in air for up to 3 hours 2
Research in The Netherlands found the typical 6-foot social distancing measurement between people to be ineffective… and recommended spacing of up to 65 feet (20 meters) 3
How People are Infected
Study after study proves there are two transmission routes
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
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.
What's in the air?
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:
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:
Pet odors and dander
Fine air pollution
Viruses / Bacteria
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—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.
In fact the EPA estimates that Sick Building Syndrome alone is responsible for $60 billion in lost revenue.
The average cost of sick days is $2650 per employee per year.
Why purify the air?
Here are the benefits of cleaner air.
99.97% of harmful germs, allergens and particulates are removed safely and easily.
Improved indoor air quality improves mental tasks, like concentration and recall, and can reduce absenteeism due to illness.
Clean air—free from contaminants and harsh odors—shows care and concern for the well-being of your facility’s occupants and customers.
Our commercial-grade air purifiers are the only solution proven in independent tests to capture the airborne flu virus.
Removes 99.9% of allergens and viruses using True HEPA filter
Significantly reduces odors and VOCs
Features patented, auto-detecting EnviroSmart™ Technology
