Since the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor air quality and purification have been an area of concern for the general public and professionals, alike. These concerns have generated a new demand for high-quality air purification technology, such as the Airocide filter, and new investment incentives from the United States federal government, to fuel the development and production of superior products in the marketplace to help safeguard people from airborne pollutants, viruses, and bacteria. In this article, we will discuss the importance of air purification in public areas, and what sets Airocide® apart from other products in the marketplace.

Why It Is Important

Considering the numerous ways the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world and how humans interact with one another, one fact that can be highlighted is that more people are now conscious of the air they are breathing. Even during normal times, without the threat of a deadly global virus, humans are exposed to countless airborne contaminants, allergens, pathogens, and bacteria every time they walk out of their front door. The risk of exposure to harmful contaminants increases exponentially when they venture into public places such as schools, grocery stores, or office buildings and the growing concern for the health and safety of the public has become a priority for public officials and business owners. Thankfully, high-quality air purifiers, such as the Airocide filter, are available and now have the ability to clean the air and eliminate the presence of all airborne contaminants in the building, including the COVID-19 virus. Helping you and your business to create a highly-desired level of protection for the public’s number one health concern is now a simple reality that has never before been easier to achieve.

How Airocide® Works

If you have dedicated the time to conduct research on the current state of air purification technology, and the variety of products, you may be aware of some of the more basic approaches to air purification such as high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters. HEPA filters are a commonly used and affordable method for addressing a number of known air pollutants and allergens that people would be better off being shielded from, but in its current state, the technology does not protect people from a number of airborne viruses, and especially not the COVID-19 virus. Airocide filters by Sterilumen apply its patented Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) UV light technology that completely traps and destroys harmful and odor-producing airborne virus microbes that cannot be caught by HEPA filters. Listed as a Class II Medical Device by the U.S. Federal Food and Drug Administration, not only has Airocide’s technology proven to be far more effective than HEPA filters, the United States government has applauded Airocide’s technology so admirably that NASA approved it for use to sanitize the International Space Station.
