When we think of polluted and contaminated air, we think of smoggy cities, smokestacks, and pollution hanging in the air outside. We rarely think of indoor air as being polluted, contaminated, and full of harmful particles.
However, the air we breathe indoors can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. We spend 90% of our time indoors breathing in this air. With a statistic like that, it makes sense that we focus on improving our indoor air quality in places we spend the most time!
Public spaces, like schools, healthcare facilities, and workplaces are home to a variety of harmful particles in the air, like bacteria, dust, allergens, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), viruses, odors, and chemicals. It’s important to use high quality filtration methods throughout these public spaces in order to reduce the risk to employees and visitors.
Respiratory illnesses are one of the leading causes of doctor visits and sick days each year. An estimated 60 billion dollars is lost each year because of ‘Sick Building Syndrome’. Many of these respiratory illnesses and the spread of diseases can be prevented or reduced by having efficient filtration systems in the office.
HEPA filters can be used as a filtration solution for a variety of air systems and cleaning equipment to improve indoor air quality. Janitized® provides replacement HEPA filters for a variety of the vacuum industry’s most prominent brands, including Karcher*, Nilfisk* and ProTeam* as well as HEPA filters for the restoration market including Dri-Eaz* and Phoenix*.
