Accu-Air does not make any medical claims and up to date, there are no products specifically tested on covid 19, however here is what we know...
The CDC has recommended using disinfectants only trusted by the EPA to aid in protection against this pandemic. Since they trust these products will be effective, we do as well. Hydrogen-peroxide is a disinfectant that complies with the recommendation. Hydrogen peroxide occurs naturally in the environment and is often to blame for the pleasant smell present after a rain storm. Our most advanced air purification system on hand possesses two technologies. Both are proven to be extremely effective against not only all 3 categories of air quality, but viruses especially. With patented state of the art technology, the system is capable of producing airborne hydro-peroxide’s that will actively purify the air you breathe and kill microbes on surfaces. According to the CDC, household (3 percent) hydrogen peroxide is effective in deactivating rhinovirus, the virus that causes the common cold, within 6 to 8 minutes of exposure. Rhinovirus is more difficult to destroy than coronaviruses, so hydrogen peroxide should be able to break down coronavirus in less time.
BI polar ionization is the second factor that gives our product of choice the ability to kill viruses, even coronaviruses. There are many different kind of coronaviruses. The latest known as Covid 19 is simply a mutated version but fortunately possesses the same traits as other coronaviruses. Pathogens like Covid 19 are referred to as ‘enveloped’ or protein jacketed virus types. The air purifiers we install have been lab tested and proven to have 99%+ reduction on similar enveloped viruses in air and on surfaces in space. According to the manufacturer of the air purifier, as they stated, this leads to the assumption the product can be effective against covid 19 as well. Bi polar ions kill viruses by attaching themselves to the virus. Ions are formed by an imbalance of protons and electrons thus making them unstable. Therefore, they attach to other pollutants in space in attempt exchange molecules and regain stability once again. Bipolar ionization kills viruses by pulling a hydrogen molecule from the virus which combines with oxygen to form water vapor. This renders the virus inactive, kills it, and the virus is now unable infect anyone. The bonding process of both molecules also causes the virus to increase in size, becoming heavier, which in return brings it out of the airborne breathing space where it will either be trapped in air filter or stick to a surface where it can be sanitized and terminated.
For reasons stated, we feel the air purification system we offer will not only help you stay better protected during these rough times but also for years to come.
Indoor air quality is often something none of us think about. A virus is just a small fraction of the harmful air pollutants lingering in our home and times like these truly bring clarity to importance of our industry. Our goal is to help as many families as possible no matter the application or budget at hand. Contact us today and let us help you pick the best indoor air solution for your home.
The Accu-Air crew is praying for all the lives affected by this pandemic and wish health and wellness to you and your family!
