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.
We spend 90% of our time indoors.
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
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.
