Covid-19 is primarily transmitted through person-to-person contact and through contact with droplets released from an infected person. The basic safety measures that many continue to implement include maintaining a safe distance whenever possible, wearing a face mask in public, washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. Another measure to consider is the use of High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters.
There is no downside to creating a safer and cleaner indoor environment. Opening the windows when possible and making improvements to HVAC systems are said to potentially reduce risk. Used properly, air cleaners/purifiers and HVAC filters can also help reduce airborne contaminants – including viruses – in indoor spaces. Portable air cleaners/air purifiers may also help when additional ventilation with outdoor air is either not possible or the outdoor air pollution is high and windows can’t be opened or there is no HVAC system.
Air cleaners and HVAC filters are designed to filter out and help reduce pollutants or contaminants that pass thru them, including particles containing viruses. Airtek Indoor Air Solutions offers a variety of filtration choices including HEPA filtration that will collect/capture particulates as small as 0.3 microns, which is far smaller than the virus that causes COVID-19.
