Initial indoor air quality control management solution

Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. Some health effects may show up shortly after a single exposure or repeated exposures to a pollutant. These include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.

Harmful gases such as formaldehyde and benzene have become another major source of indoor air quality. The air pollutants left in formaldehyde and other interior decoration have large molecular mass and are easy to be suspended in the lower interval The daily activity area is benefiting from the hardest hit areas where harmful gases such as formaldehyde are concentrated.

In choosing an air purifier for the work environment, there are four critical issues that businesses should consider.

Why my premises need an air purifier

Indoor air is cleaner than outdoors is one of the common misconceptions about indoor air quality. The fact, however, indoor air is often as bad as, and sometimes worse than outdoor air. Air purifiers are the best way to clean your air indoors.  They also help maintain a healthy environment by removing the following triggering particles:

Allergens
Air purifiers designed for allergy relief typically have multiple filters, including HEPA filers, to remove indoor allergens like pollen and dust.

Smoke and VOCs
Tobacco-smoke residue that lingers in furniture, curtains and house dust can cause or make worse a wide range of damaging health effects in adults and especially children, including lung cancer, respiratory infections and asthma. Air purifiers with carbon filters are designed to remove gases and odors, and are primarily useful for organic compounds namely VOCs.

Dander
Most often, when a veterinarian, or pet shop owner begins looking for an air purifier, it’s because of odor, allergies from the dander. Select highly effective air purifiers and low cost solutions to handle the amount of dander and odors produced by multiple pets in one indoor area.

How efficient are the filters of the device?

HEPA is a type of pleated mechanical air filter. It is an acronym for “high efficiency particulate air [filter]”. This type of air filter can theoretically remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns.

The higher percentage of filtration the air purifier offers, the higher amount of airborne particles is to be removed in one single air pass. Hence, the more efficient the air purifier is.

Does it have a high clean air delivery rate (CADR)?

CADR stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate. It is the most important metric you need to focus on when buying an air purifier. It tells us how quickly and effectively an air purifier will purify the indoor air.

In short, the higher the CADR rating, the faster an air purifier can clean the indoor air of pollutants.

What size of air purifier do I need and where should I put my air purifier?

Air purifiers come in a wide array of sizes options, with each one being good for a specific room size that’s measured in total square feet. Most brands would recommend you to measure the square footage of your room, match the square feet rating on the air purifier to your room, and place the air purifier closest to the source.

Far more than that, in order to attain full protection for an indoor area, throughout understanding of –

1. Concentration of pollutants

dust, smoke, mold spores
across the room is one of the key pre-requisites.

2. Indoor airflow

air purifier should be placed on the hallway where there is the highest air exchange within the apartment/house

in different areas of the room is needed.

3. Others

With golden matching of the first two key determining factors, alongside considerations including size and number of air purifier units needed, you can synergize the efficiency of the air purifier by up to 70% when compared to placing it in a wrong spot.
