Air Cleaning 101

Clean air is critical for indoor environments. UV sanitizing technology offers an effective and efficient way to disinfect the air and help prevent potential impact to your business from the spread of germs, mold, and other pathogens. Disease outbreaks can mean temporary closure and potentially long-term damage to your business reputation, but what may be less obvious are the negative effects on day-to-day performance. Unhealthy air can cause high rates of absenteeism thanks to the spread of colds or flu as well as impact even simple decision-making due to headaches.

If you care about a successful business, but you’re not cleaning your indoor air, you may be putting your employees, clients, customers, and the health of your business at risk. The following are some air-cleaning basics you need to know.

Air Cleaning 101 – Understanding Air Quality and Air Purity

It is important to understand the importance of indoor air quality. The air you breathe is critical for health and well-being. Indoor air can be polluted with bacteria, viruses, mold, and other pathogens.  

While some of these contaminants are large and heavy enough to fall to the surface where they can be eliminated with surface cleaning, most are “aerosolized.” Virtually invisible bacteria and viruses can remain viable (alive and able to infect) in the air for extended periods of time, clinging to tiny dust particles, riding on air currents, and traveling throughout the environment until inhaled by another host. Once ingested, these agents begin to wreak havoc within the upper respiratory tract.

How UV Sanitizing Rids Your Air of Harmful Particles

To help ensure your air stays clean, and to avoid these health risks, you need viable solutions. 

You can clean the air by sanitizing it as it passes through something that will kill the bacteria, viruses, mold, and other pathogens. That something is ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI).

UVGI is often just called UV but it is not the same UV as the UV-A or UV-B we hear about more often that cause premature aging (UV-A) or skin cancer (UV-B) for example. This UV, rather, has been used for 100 years to help disinfect, sanitize, and control infection in hospitals and other highly sensitive environments where maintaining sanitary air circulation, as well as surface areas, is critical. Likewise, UV sanitizing is an excellent way to clean the air in your business. It cleans the air by destroying harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. UV sanitizing can help kill germs that cause illnesses like the flu or common colds. 

UV sanitizing destroys harmful particles in the air which also helps reduce the number of microbes landing on surfaces. Upper air and mobile UVGI products can address specific areas of your business for immediate, targeted disinfection. UVGI can also be integrated with your HVAC system to disinfect the air throughout your business
