How to Improve Indoor Air Quality During COVID-19
COVID-19 affected everyone in Northwest Arkansas. Everyone quickly learned the familiar ways of preventing the spread of COVID-19 infections. Masks and social distancing are well-known ways of preventing the spread of COVID-19. However, airborne transmissions can spread infections.
A critical factor in preventing the spread of COVID-19 is the quality of air indoors. More people now gather at home for social events, so considering indoor air quality and reducing airborne transmission is important during COVID-19.
Air Control of Northwest Arkansas sells and installs air purifiers specifically designed to protect air quality in the home. The air purifiers rose in popularity during COVID-19 but are now generally accepted as an excellent way to eliminate germs in a house or office. Read on to learn more about ways to improve indoor air quality and why it is essential during COVID-19.
Why Care About Air Quality in COVID-19
Everyone knows COVID-19 spreads primarily through close contact with people. But the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that infections could spread through airborne transmission.
Research shows the COVID-19 virus can remain in the air and travel further distances. Some experiments showed the virus remained in the air for several hours and spread as far as two meters, or around six feet.
Because COVID-19 can stay airborne, homes and offices need to have purified air and be well ventilated. Using air purifiers is one way to lower the concentration of the virus. Maintaining the heating and cooling systems in a house or office is also essential to keep air circulating.
How Can I Improve Indoor Air Quality to Reduce COVID-19 Infections?
There are several ways to improve indoor air quality. Good ventilation and air purifiers could reduce the number of bacteria, viruses, and chemicals that travel through the air in a home or other indoor space.
Air Control has installed purifiers and serviced HVAC systems throughout the Northwest Arkansas area to help improve air quality. This article will go into detail about how indoor air quality can improve, including:
