The COVID-19 Pandemic has spread around the world and will change forever the way we clean and disinfect our environment.
In this new reality, while practicing social distancing and cleaning surfaces, we have begun to ask ourselves what are the next steps in taking precautions to prevent the spread of airborne pathogens?
According to a study done by the CDC, aerosolized viral droplets introduced to the air stream by sneezing and coughing can stay suspended in the air for hours.
These viral respiratory particles are of particular concern to airport staff and passengers who are confined to crowded indoor environments.
Filtration Group and its sister companies and partners are trusted to protect airports and major airlines globally against high level of pollution from jet fumes, vehicle exhaust, chemical odors and the impact it can have on employees, critical equipment, and passengers. We provide critical filtration to the FAA control tower for the busiest airports in the world. As the needs to protect these spaces has evolved, so have our filtration solutions.
Air filters capture a range of particle sizes and each time recirculated air passes through a filter, more particles are trapped. When the optimal filter type and efficiency is chosen, HVAC systems and in-room air scrubbers can dramatically reduce the quantity of airborne pathogens. Some filtration technologies can even destroy target viruses and bacteria.
