Did you know that indoor air is 2-5 times more polluted than outside air?
Without the proper air cleaning and purification measures in place, indoor environments can be at risk of harmful moulds, mildew and bacteria spores contaminating the air that we breathe.
Air scrubbers are air circulator which pull air through a series of filters to reduce levels of particles and gases before releasing purified air out of the other side. The purpose of an air scrubber is to make air breathable after it has been contaminated by toxic fumes, chemicals, gases, and pollutants, preventing potentially harmful contaminants from entering equipment or human airways.
Air Scrubbers vs. Air Purifiers
The main difference between an air scrubber and an air purifier has to do with what particles they clean. Air purifiers are designed to pull airborne particles through the equipment and filter them out within the purifier itself. They do not actually help remove particles that are attached to surfaces such as walls, floors, or other equipment. Air scrubbers, on the other hand, send out negative ions that attach to both airborne and surface particles, making them heavier and easier to clean up or filter.
Of all the air scrubbers and purifiers on the market today, HEPA (high efficiency particulate arresting) filters are considered to be the most effective being able to remove up to 99.97% of 0.3-micrometer particles.
You should consider using an air scrubber if you need to:
- reduce dust levels
- reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other gaseous contaminants
- provide additional air filtration
- dry out an area quickly after a leak or flood
- stop spores from spreading during mould remediation
- remove burnt odour and reduce airborne soot levels after a fire
