Pure Aire Wellness as a company is focused on creating better living and working conditions for families afflicted with respiratory problems and allergies. According to the American Lung Association, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), can be dirty and hazardous to your health. In fact, IAQ can be significantly more polluted than the air outdoors. Bacteria and viruses can travel through the air, causing and worsening diseases. When someone coughs or sneezes, tiny water or mucus droplets filled with viruses or bacteria scatter. Inhaling these viruses can spread coughs, colds, influenza, and TB and other infectious agents. Recirculated air spreads bacteria and viruses, which thrive in poor air because of poorly maintained building ventilation systems, and believing that air filtration is air purification, “sick building syndrome” is created. Most often, the human occupants of a home or workplace are the “source” of infectious disease, which are then circulated through the home or workplace via the ventilation system. This is according to the American Lung Association.
What’s the problem?
The problem is well known but poorly understood. In our homes and workplaces Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can be extremely toxic. With recycled air, many pathogens that are present will continue to be present in spite of good or even the best filtration systems. Air filtration cannot stop particles that live in the microscopic nano-world. Infectious pathogens such as bacteria and viruses survive and may even thrive indoors. Molds, fungi and allergens among many other contaminants such as VOC’s ( Volatile Organic Compounds ), pass through the best filtration systems and are recycled throughout our homes and businesses. We seal our homes and businesses tightly to save energy, so that we do not spend excessive amounts of money and natural resources heating and cooling our homes or workplaces. A major downside to this is that we are not able to bring enough fresh outside air into our homes or buildings, even with the best air exchangers, to lower the concentrations of biological and chemical contaminants within our homes and buildings. These airborne contaminants include viruses, bacteria, mold, chemicals, VOC’s, fumes and odors. A filter is not an air purifier. Many of us use filters in our homes or business ventilation systems to remove particulates in the air. Biological and chemical contaminants are so small that they pass through even the highest efficiency filter (such as the HEPA commercial grade standards), like sand through a tennis racket.
Another issue, according to the American Lung Association, is because of the toxic IAQ, there is an increase of respiratory problems in children. The largest portion of a child’s lungs will grow after they are born. 80% of their tiny air sacs develop after birth. The lungs and their alveoli aren’t fully grown until children become adults. In addition, the body’s defenses that help adults fight off infections are still developing in young bodies. Children have more respiratory infections than adults, which seems to increase susceptibility to air pollution. It stands to reason that if their IAQ is toxic, the chances for serious respiratory issues can occur. Children with certain respiratory issues like Asthma, can lose a whole grade in school because of breathing issues related to Asthma.
Pure Aire Wellness is offering a premium elite product that has been tested and proven effective by many notable organizations; EPA & Homeland Security, NIHS (National Institute Health & Science), and a McGill University Double Blind study published in The Lancet. All studies concluded 99% destruction of bacteria, microbial and endotoxin concentration. McGill also showed an incredible 40% reduction in respiratory symptoms of employees in three high rise buildings in Montreal, Canada. Pure Aire Wellness provides distribution for Sanuvox Technologies for the first time in South Dakota. Pure Aire Wellness is located in Rapid City in the beautiful Black Hills.
Currently the main competition is the air filtration business, which is less costly but does not complete the process needed to perfect actual indoor air quality. Air Filtration is not Air Purification , filters also offer little to no protection from “Sick Building Syndrome”.
Any size of home or building can be helped with their Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and also a reduction of toxins and contaminants in any given living or working environment. Contact Pure Aire Wellnes @ 605-209-5930 or visit our website; www.pureairewellness.com
