Indoor Air Pollution
As Floridians, we spend a lot of time inside with the air conditioner running to keep cool. Because the building is closed to the outside air, the AC System recycles the air same over and over. According to the Environment Protection Agency, indoor air pollutants may be 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor air pollutant quantities. Occasionally indoor air pollutant levels can even spike as high as 100 times the levels of outdoor air.
It has been recognized the indoor air contamination of bacteria, viruses, mold, allergens, and toxins such as formaldehyde and toluene rank high in environmental risk to health issues. Indoor Air Quality is a problem that must be addressed to keep your family healthy.
Dirty sock syndrome is the foul, moldy smelling odor that comes from your air conditioner and is caused by the build-up of mold and bacteria on your evaporator coil during winter months when you transition from heating mode at night to cooling mode during the day.
UV Light is a Cost-effective Method to Improve Indoor Air Quality, IAQ
Ultraviolet (UV) Light Systems have been scientifically proven through numerous studies to kill 90% of microbial contaminants after 10 minutes of exposure to UV Light. After an hour exposure, UV Light has been found to be 99% effective. UV Light penetrates the cell wall of micro-organisms causing severe cellular damage by disruption of the micro-organism DNA. Thus, killing it and preventing an organism’s reproduction. UV Light is a popular and effective disinfection technology used in laboratories, commercially and hospitals to prevent the spread of airborne infectious diseases. UV Light kills germs, mold, and allergens without producing ozone.
