The COVID-19 outbreak and ongoing global pandemic has made everyone increasingly aware of air quality and safety. As people resume normal activities and given this particular virus’s proclivity to linger in poorly ventilated indoor spaces, making indoor air safe is more important than ever before. Improving air quality by cleaning the air is just as important as cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, though the process is quite different.
The coronavirus with its airborne qualities is not alone, as other contaminants also decrease air quality and bring both short-term and long-term health problems. In fact, some work environments virtually guarantee high levels of pollution and poor air quality. One way to make indoor air safe is the use of Air Scrubbers, also called Negative Air Machines. Air Scrubbers can improve air quality and enhance overall health. The experts at Cooling Power Corp share these tips on making indoor air safer and cleaner for a healthier environment.
What is an Air Scrubber?
An Air Scrubber (Negative Air Machine) is a piece of equipment used to improve the quality of indoor air. They are common in manufacturing facilities, hospitals, industrial facilities, and commercial buildings. At Cooling Power Corp, the negative air machines are premium quality working at a higher capacity and designed with HEPA filters for maximum efficiency (capturing 99.97 percent for 0.3-micron particles). With a premium Air Scrubber in place, indoor air is cleaner, protecting employees, customers, and all who enter the business or facility.
Negative Air Machines create negative pressure to isolate and trap airborne particles, thus keeping them from moving throughout the building. Cooling Power’s Air Scrubbers feature pre-filtration to remove large airborne contaminants, followed by HEPA filtration of microscopic microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungi, and allergens. Plus, the Negative Air Machines also feature a third level of filtration, a high capacity carbon filter, to eliminate odors. Air Scrubbers are available in a variety of sizes, effectively trapping pollutants and contaminants from the indoor air.
Signs and Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality
While you might think that unusual odors are indicative of air quality, often the reverse is true and there is no strange smell accompanying poor indoor air quality. Instead, when determining air quality, these signs and symptoms are attributed to contaminated indoor air:
- Watery eyes
Poor indoor air quality also can have more serious health effects such as:
- Rhinitis – sinus inflammation and nasal congestion or a running nose
- Conjunctivitis – eye irritation
- Skin Rashes
- Nose Bleeds
- Nausea and vomiting
- Pharyngitis – cough and sore throat
- Difficulty Breathing
- Loss of Appetite
- Chills and Fever
Using Negative Air Machines Effectively
Air Scrubbers are a great way to make indoor air safer in businesses and organizations including educational facilities, hotels, offices, warehouses, industrial facilities, arenas, manufacturing facilities, as well as corporate events, film production locations, and trade shows. In addition to Negative Air Machines, business and organizations can further improve air quality by banning smoking, ensuring proper ventilation, adding plants, and controlling animal infestations, just to name a few.
