According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air is up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. And most of us spend around 90% of our life indoors.
Odours and many infections are created by bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) carried in the air. Our aim is to help you cut odours and improve healthcare by eliminating harmful bacteria in enclosed spaces.
There are many airborne pollutants. Nearly 1000 different types of viruses are known to infect humans - they are estimated to account for 60% of human infections. The young, elderly and immuno-compromised are particularly at risk from virus infections.
Colds, flu, bronchitis, chicken pox, measles, mumps, polio, gastroenteritis, diarrhoea and infectious intestinal disease are all examples of airborne infections.
Germs (all potentially harmful micro-organisms) which include bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa are found everywhere. Only a small number are pathogenic. Many bacteria are beneficial. However, even free-living bacteria or members of the normal flora are potentially pathogenic in certain types of individual.
Fungi can pose just as much a threat to health as bacteria. Almost all microbial allergens are fungal in origin. Asthma can be initiated and provoked by allergens.
Micro-organisms are continuosly introduced to our environment: People, food, pets, water, insects and air are all responsible. Without being aware of it some people carry highly pathogenic organisms without themselves being affected.
In enclosed spaces, the Health Protection Agency showed that Air Steril kills up to 98% of bacteria, viruses, moulds and fungi in the air and on surfaces.
Air Steril is the most cost effective and eco friendly way to eliminate odours and control infections. Call us now on 01424 452620 to find out how it could help you.
