Low indoor air quality environments cause or trigger health problems. One of these is Sick Building Syndrome, which can be seen everywhere from offices to hospitals and schools and entered the Medical literature.
Among the causes of sick building syndrome, which is frequently seen in buildings where air circulation and ventilation is insufficient, there are no windows to open to outside, and heating-cooling systems such as air conditioners are used; buildings made from unhealthy construction materials, humidity and the use of goods produced from chemicals harmful to health.
Indoor air quality with proven impact on efficiency, performance, and mental activities; it is also directly related to the temperature and humidity of the environment. Humidity decreases, respiratory infections, burning in the throat, headache, dizziness, odour and taste disturbance, dry eye, cough, fatigue, and allergic reactions can occur in many health problems. The symptoms of sick building syndrome, including these and similar symptoms, diminish or disappear when people leave the environment.
The only way to eliminate a problem is to eliminate the source of the problem. This can be started by using non-toxic cleaning agents and paints.
Airborne pollutants are the most important factors that reduce indoor air quality. One of the first steps to prevent indoor air pollution is to reach the source of the pollutants in primary and secondary sources and eliminate the root contaminants. Another step is to choose healthier alternatives (natural products without chemicals) in the content of materials available in any living space.
However, avoiding chemicals may not always be economical and feasible. After taking measures to solve the problem at its source, other factors should be taken into consideration for improving indoor air quality in all building types.
Can we improve our indoor air quality without going through major changes? The answer is yes!
Today, technologies that offer absolute solutions such as Air Purifiers and UV air purifiers have been developed to improve indoor air quality and breathe healthier in our home or office.
We live in an industrial world with very polluted air. Gases and particles in the air threaten our health both in the short and long term. In addition, we spend long periods of time in closed, crowded and poorly ventilated places such as Schools, Shopping Malls, Offices, Stores and even public transportation vehicles.
Air purifiers, which should be used especially in these places, effectively filter the particles in the air and neutralize the bacteria and viruses kept in the filters with UV technology. Thanks to the active carbon filter, it eliminates chemical gases and odours in the air and provides you with completely purified indoor air.
UV Air purifiers are very effective units that sterilize air from all airborne pathogens like viruses, bacteria and mould. UV Air purifiers consist of germicidal UV-C lamps. These lamps kill or deactivate all by corrupting the DNA of these pathogens. UV air purifiers sterilize air instantly without producing any ozone gas. Like ozone generators, these air purifiers don’t require any consumables but electricity.
UV systems can be used as stand-alone or they can be installed in ventilation systems. Both applications achieve a great result but like all engineering solutions, they have to be chosen and calculated carefully for maximum performance.
