How Can You Purify Your Air in Your Home and Business to Combat COVID-19?
COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person. However, some uncertainty remains about the relative importance of different routes of transmission that can cause the virus. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), evidence now confirms that this virus can remain airborne for longer times and further distances than originally thought. In addition to close contact with infected people and contaminated surfaces, spread of COVID-19 may also occur via airborne particles in indoor environments, in some circumstances beyond the 6 ft. range encouraged by some social distancing recommendations. There are steps that can be taken to reduce the potential for airborne transmission of COVID-19. The layout and design of a building, as well as occupancy and type of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, can all impact potential airborne spread of the virus. Although improvements to ventilation and air cleaning cannot on their own eliminate the risk of airborne transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, EPA recommends increasing ventilation with outdoor air and air filtration as important components of a larger strategy that includes social distancing, wearing cloth face coverings or masks, surface cleaning and disinfecting, handwashing, and other precautions. The iWave air purifiers can help potentially eliminate these harmful pathogens. iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any heating or air conditioning system. When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts. Based on independent research, it was determined that at 10 minutes, 84.2% of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus was inactivated. At 15 minutes, 92.6% of the virus was inactivated and at 30 minutes, 99.4% was inactivated. Air Medic can install this device in your home or office.
