Government guidelines recommend that air purification technology is used in areas where maintaining adequate ventilation is not possible or practical in order to reduce the spread of transmissible illnesses during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Professional air purification units can aid in eliminating harmful pathogens and contaminants from the atmosphere and are considered one of the key methods in reducing the risk of an outbreak in office, educational, retail and medical environments.
For example, dental surgeries in particular can reduce fallow time by up to half with the use of air purification - meaning that the practitioner can see more patients throughout the day, having to wait just half the usual time it would take for the air in the clinic to be deemed clean and safe to invite in the next patient.
Taking the above example in mind, what can air purification do for your workplace?
Customers, employees and visitors are much more likely to feel safe and reassured when spending time in a room or building that implements air purification equipment - especially in locations where hand sanitising and mask wearing is no longer enforced.
Not only does air purification offer a reassuring presence, but has a measurable, practical impact on the spread of illness. Air purification units like the ViroAir Plus are up to 99.75% effective at eliminating harmful contaminants and pathogens from the environment - meaning that illness is less likely to spread in locations that use air purifiers.
A recent study in a hospital in Canada has actually shown that no evidence of the Sars-CoV-2 virus was found on days when UV-C and HEPA-13 air purification was used in a Covid-19 surge ward and ICU. Varying amounts of the virus was found on days when air purification was not used.
At this next stage of the global pandemic, air purification is viewed by many as another key measure that can be taken to combat the spread of Covid-19 alongside other airborne illnesses like cold and flu and could prove vital in aiding businesses and organisations to operate effectively.
Some key points on the benefits of air purification in business:
- Reduced staff absence due to illness
- Improved wellbeing due to a reduction in allergic reactions to pollen and dust
- Reassure visitors, employees and customers
- Reduction in 'fallow time' between appointments
- Reduced risk of the spread of transmissible illnesses
