Welcome to Air Scrub
AirScrub.co.uk are now offering both commercial and domestic air and surface decontamination for risk reduction purposes. It should be fully understood this is risk reduction only and that generally, all and any commercial and effective decontamination process would normally require detailed surface cleaning prior to and post treatment. The risk reduction process is as follows:
The process can only be undertaken in unoccupied premises The process uses a sanitising agent recommended by CDC (Centre of Disease Control) and EPA-Environmental Protection Agency, CAAC -Civil Aviation Administration China 4th Edition of COVID 19 No re occupation for 2 hours after treatment The air is filled with a micro-mist of oxidising agent which will quickly degrade into carbon dioxide and water The objective is to dilute viral loading using recognised protocols by filling the air with a micro-mist which will settle on surfaces, thereby providing a twofold action High risk areas such as door handles should be wiped over post treatment
Our technicians will arrive at your home or office wearing full Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) as seen below and will comply with the social distancing rules applied by the government.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is increasingly becoming a health concern as our homes and offices become tighter with less ventilation to reduce heating costs and green house gas emission. With respiratory illness accounting for 1 in 8 of all European deaths we can see the significance of clean air. The average property is now 8 times more polluted than outside air as various contaminates build up due to poor ventilation. This contamination comprises of dead skin, mite, rodent and insect faeces, mould spores and chemical issues from household and personal products
Bacteria and virus are also a growing concern as respiratory infection is becoming increasingly difficult to treat or cure and these use vector agents such as particles.
The inhalation risk is from particles less than 10 micron and gases such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are typically released from wet building materials, perfumes and cleaning products.
Mould and biological activity from water damage ranging from damp issues to flooding will result in aerosolisation of health hazards as surface contamination is released during normal activity or even cleaning and especially as floodwater dries out and contamination it carried dries out and carried into the air on dust. Soot s from fires are recognised carcinogens and should be removed prior to re occupation or even work in the contaminated property.
The hazards arises from dose or exposure and this often relates to how much time you spend inside an affected building and your personal immune system.
Those at Risk
Anyone that inhales allergens or toxins over a period of time can expect to have some form of reaction but some are more prone than others. Age, general health and time spent in a building can influence response but there is an Atopic population who are particularly prone and this group is estimated at between 10 and 40% of the population
The following list of symptoms from IAQ problems is only a general guide,
Asthma Skin and eye irritation Tingling skin, lips Respiratory problems Memory and concentration loss
See full list in Heath Effects Section
There are several ways to improve IAQ but most have serious limitation in terms of cost, time and efficiency. These limitations are explained in our Technical Section where we show and prove scientific evidence that AirScrub provides the most effective, fast and affordable results.
