Clean Your Air
7 months into the pandemic we know for certain that Covid-19 is an airborne virus. Until a vaccine is in place, we are left trying to insure that the air we breathe is “clean”. There are two primary methods for creating a “clean air bubble”:
- Prevent “bad” air from getting to you by using a physical barrier
- Scrub the air that you breathe with an air filter or filtration system
Most people are familiar with physical barriers such as masks and divider shields. This post will review air filtration systems which are an important part of any plan to mitigate Covid-19.
Typical Air Purifier
A typical air purifier runs your air through a filter designed to catch particles that would otherwise be inhaled. The purifier generally employs a High Efficiency Particulate Absorbing (HEPA) filter, designed to catch 99%+ of particles 0.3 microns or larger. Other filter types include active carbon filters and ionic purifiers. These purifiers work well for wildfire smoke, pollen and dust.
Air Filtration Systems
Taking the typical consumer air purifier to a different level is the Clean Zonez Air Filtration system. Clean Zonez provides a five-level filtration system that can accommodate up to 100 square feet per unit. With 4 different layers of filters, Clean Zonez’s fifth layer employs a UV-C sterilization system that efficiently kills bacteria and inactivates viruses.
With a compact design (13.15″W x 11.61″H x 5.08″D) and light weight (5.5 lbs), Clean Zonez can hang on a panel in your workstation, sit in a corner of your office, or travel with you into the conference room for that critical client meeting. Using a standard plug, Clean Zonez can work in the home as easily as it works in the office.
A Complete Air Purification Plan
As you plan for your employees to return to the office, it is important to remember that no single solution works to stop Covid-19.
A good office air purification plan combines:
- Smart office planning to insure social distancing
- Policies and management role modeling to encourage mask wearing
- Plenty of hand-cleaning stations throughout the office
- Air-filtration systems in employee work areas
These components will go a long way in mitigating the risks of transmitting the virus, and make your employees feel valued.
