What to Know About Commercial Air Purifiers

Commercial air purifiers and air sanitizers have been of particular interest lately. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, more commercial property owners have been looking for solutions to keep the public safe. Airborne viruses, bacteria, mold, pollen, dust, smoke, chemicals and other pollutants are constantly floating around indoors. While ventilation helps, it’s not always practical in extreme weather.

That’s why many business owners have turned to commercial air purifiers and sanitizers. These devices can trap pollutants (and even kill viruses and bacteria) to reduce chance of illness. You’ll breathe easier knowing that your customers and employees are a lot safer on the job.

How do purifiers and sanitizers work?

Many of us have residential air purifiers at home, especially when a family member suffers from respiratory illness or allergies. Air purifiers circulate and filter air, trapping a number of pollutants.

Air sanitizers work similarly. They can filter and circulate air, but may be equipped with a UV light to kill bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. When it comes to illnesses like COVID-19, the flu or even the common cold, reducing the airborne viral load is the key to keeping everyone healthy.

When you’re looking for a commercial air purifier or sanitizer, it’s important that you choose a model that fits your building. Look for a unit that can handle each room size, whether you’re in a large department store or an office building. You should also consider the cost of purchasing and the cost to run it as well as how much noise it emits.

Finally, make sure to pick a well-reviewed, high-quality model. Like any piece of machinery, investing in quality will reduce chances of malfunction later on.

Benefits of commercial air purifiers and sanitizers

  • Keep visitors healthy: Whether you’re getting a purifier and sanitizer because of the COVID-19 pandemic or for another reason, your company’s visitors and employees will appreciate it. Many companies advertise their air filtration and sanitation systems now, to encourage customers to visit. The less chance they feel there is to get sick, the more comfortable they’ll be patronizing your establishment.
  • Prevent mold and mildew: Moisture leads to mold and mildew—but if you have an air purifier and sanitizer, you can trap and remove those mold spores before they have a chance to grow. That can save your company thousands on mold remediation.
  • Get rid of odors: Everyone has experienced a mysterious funky smell somewhere in their building. No one seems to know what the source is, but everyone can smell it. Whether it’s smoke, chemical odors or otherwise, an air purifier and sanitizer will make your building smell like it’s located in an alpine meadow.
  • Increase productivity: Finally, your commercial air purifier and sanitizer will increase productivity. When your workers are healthier, they’re less likely to take sick days. In turn, you’ll spend less time catching up, and more time getting the job done.
