Advanced Technology: Air Scrubbers
What Are Air Scrubbers?
An air scrubber is a portable filtration system that removes particles, gasses, or chemicals from the air within a given area. These machines draw in air from the surrounding environment and pass it through a series of filters to remove contaminants. The size and complexity of an air scrubber system will depend on the size of the space being serviced, as well as the range, type, and size of contaminants that must be removed from the area.
Why Should I Use an Air Scrubber?
Air scrubbers are especially important on restoration jobs where airborne contaminants are present or will be created/disturbed during the restoration process, such as mold, dust, asbestos, lead, chemical fumes, etc. These hazardous particles can settle on furnished, upholstery and carpets, or be drawn into the HVAC system and contaminate other parts of a property.
If not removed, these contaminants will have a negative effect on the indoor air quality (IAQ) of the worksite. While naturally occurring particles—such as human skin cells, animal hair, and dirt—are nearly always present, toxic gases released by sewage-borne bacteria and mold spores can cause health effects when inhaled. In short, these contaminants can compromise the quality of the entire restoration job.
Air scrubbers help protect the health of workers and building occupants by providing a clean and healthy environment. They also help protect contractors from costly liability claims resulting from damage caused by hazardous airborne materials.
