Air Quality in Your Healthcare Environment
Why Air Quality Matters
Air quality in your hospital, dental office, or healthcare clinic is an issue of both employee and patient health, as well as comfort and cost. Poor air quality can spread viruses and bacteria more easily and puts everyone who spends time in the space at risk.
It’s not just viruses and bacteria to worry about though, air pollutants can include carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold, dust, and fungi too. All of these can create or worsen health issues such as coughs, eye irritation, headaches, allergic reactions, or can aggravate asthma or other respiratory conditions.
By better controlling temperature, humidity, ventilation, and airborne pollutants, you can ensure that everyone in your facility stays healthier.
Better Air Quality Solutions
There are many solutions to better air quality in your healthcare environment that can be both cost and energy efficient, be added to existing systems, and also be put to use in higher traffic areas such as waiting rooms.
A consistent relative humidity of 40-60% decreases viruses’ and bacteria’s ability to travel and reduces risk of infection. It also creates a more comfortable atmosphere.
Bipolar ionization systems can kill viruses, bacteria, mold, eliminates VOCs and mitigates odors. They are perfect for systems large or small.
High efficiency polarized filtration for new or old equipment provides one of the highest levels of filtration available to reduce the transmission of bacteria, viruses, and other particles. This is an extremely affordable option.
Ultraviolet lights destroy airborne viruses, germs and other microorganisms for greatly increased air quality. This is a cost-effective and energy efficient solution for cleaner air and surfaces and can be effectively implemented outside of the existing HVAC system such as in a waiting room.
