What is an Air Scrubber and Why Do We Use Them?
What is an Air Scrubber?
In simplest terms Air scrubbers, or negative air machine, is a portable air filtration machine. It draws air from the surrounding environment and passes through a series of filters. These filters efficiently remove particles from the air to help improve indoor air quality.
Why do we use Air Scrubbers?
The goal of every restoration job is to safely and efficiently return the indoor environment to preloss condition for the customer.
Any job that involves cleanup of sewage, mold and or fire damage will generate significant amounts of particulates and odiferous (smelly) gases. These contaminants are a direct result of the damage itself, as well as the necessary process of treating and cleaning damaged materials. An air scrubber helps prevent these undesirable and potentially harmful particles and gases from remaining in the indoor environment.
Mold remediation projects can release large quantities of mold and fungal spores into the air. These indoor air pollutants can affect the health and comfort of occupants. Air scrubbers are equipped with multiple pre-filters for removal of visible airborne particles. The final stage filter, HEPA, captures microscopic particles and microbes such as fungal spores. HEPA filters can capture particles as small as 0.3 micros.
