4 Ways Air Scrubbers Improve Indoor Air Quality

Air scrubbers improve indoor air quality by removing pollen and other allergens

Are you looking for a way to improve indoor air quality?

From removing harmful particles in the air to clearing strong odors, air scrubbers are an essential tool for restoration professionals.

Lightweight yet durable, air scrubbers are portable devices that can dramatically improve the air quality of whatever environment they are placed in. They can be used on restoration projects, in schools, retirement homes, daycares, office spaces, your home or really anywhere air quality is a concern. They circulate the air keeping it safe, fresh and clean.

Now that you have the basics down, here are four ways air scrubbers purify the air and improve indoor air quality.

1. Remove Allergens

Equipped with HEPA filters, air scrubbers are designed to remove fine airborne particles, such as dust, mold spores, pollen, pet dander and other allergens. HEPA stands for Using High Efficiency Particulate Air, and these filters work to purify the air by trapping up to 99.97% of microscopic airborne particulates and debris.

2. Eliminate Airborne Pathogens

In addition to allergens, air scrubbers can also help remove airborne pathogens, including viruses like COVID-19, from the air. This is more important than ever, as the global community continues to look for ways to keep people safe amid the pandemic.

3. Odor Control

Is there a pungent lingering odor on your job site? Air scrubbers help rid the air of stubborn smells, such as cigarette smoke, pet odors or rotten food, by trapping odor-causing bacteria. They can even remove odors from new construction, such as new carpet or paint.

4. HVAC System Support

While air scrubbers are often used as portable tools brought to job sites, they can also be permanently installed in HVAC systems. This can help give large systems a boost, and even extend their lifetime by keeping the system cleaner, longer.
