Particulates - Over 99% of particulate matter is invisible to the naked eye and easily infiltrates the lungs. On average, every cubic foot of untreated indoor air contains 20 million particles. With today's air quality contamination problems, filtered air purification technology is no longer adequate to make our air safe to breathe.
Microbes - Includes three major types of organisms: bacteria, protozoa, and fungi/mold. Most of these contaminants rely on a humid and moist environment for growth & survival. Some molds produce certain chemicals, such as mycotoxins and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Today's superbugs like MRSA and the H1N1 virus, are a major concern and threaten the safety of millions of people around the globe. Sophisticated technology like advanced PCO using a nano-catalyst may be our best defense against the proliferation of these potentially deadly pathogens.
Gases & Odors - Indoor gases, such as benzene, formaldehyde, and hydrogen sulfide, are released into the air from furniture, carpets, hair sprays, cleaning chemicals, insulation, and pesticides. Gases include VOCs which evaporate into the air easily. Odors are often composed of VOCs or other gases. Recent studies show the effectiveness of PCO technology, using UV and hydrated catalytic technology to break down VOCs and render them harmless.
