De snelle spreiding van Covid-19

De snelle spreiding van Covid-19 heeft de druk om onszelf en elkaar te beschermen vergroot. Gezonde en veilige faciliteiten zijn nu belangrijker dan ooit.

De dreiging in de lucht is echt

Wereldwijde gezondheidsdeskundigen en virologen zijn het erover eens: de overdracht van virussen via de lucht en aërosols vormt een belangrijke bedreiging.

De Centers for Disease Control (CDC) vonden dat COVID-19 tot 4 meter in de lucht kan reizen 1.

De New England Journal of Medicine meldde dat het virus tot 3 uur in de lucht kan blijven hangen 2

Uit onderzoek in Nederland bleek dat de typische 1,5-meter samenleving tussen mensen niet voldoende is… en er werd aanbevolen om de afstand tot 20 meter te vergroten 3

Hoe mensen geïnfecteerd raken

Onderzoek na onderzoek wijst uit dat er twee manieren van overdracht zijn

Een persoon kan geïnfecteerd raken door direct contact met een persoon of object dat het virus draagt.

Via de lucht met 2 overdrachts mogelijkheden:

Overdracht via de lucht via grote druppels
(> 10 micron) wanneer mensen hoesten of niezen (1,5 m risico)

Transmissie in de lucht door kleine deeltjes

(<5 micron) ook gegenereerd door hoesten/niezen/praten

Een complete hygiëne strategie

Een proactieve aanpak moet bestaan uit drie essentiële componenten voor de bescherming tegen de overdracht van virussen in een gemeenschappelijke omgeving.



Handen wassen



Reinigen van oppervlaktes

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.”

Het houdt niet op bij virussen

De gemiddelde persoon ademt 10.800 liter lucht in per dag, waarbij de meeste mensen 90% van hun tijd binnenshuis doorbrengen en 9 uur per dag in gedeelde ruimtes - die tot 5x meer vervuild zijn dan buiten.

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.

We spend 90% of our time indoors.

What's in the air?

Unpleasant odors

ODORS

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.

Microorganisms

GERMS

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.

Allergens

ALLERGENS

Approximately 20% of all people are impacted with allergies.

Read More

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.

Other Irritants

OTHER IRRITANTS

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

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.

Why purify the air?

Here are the benefits of cleaner air.
