Quality Filtration Upgrades Can Help Limit the Effects of COVID-19

We’re living in unprecedented times. Months into the pandemic, we’re all still looking for ways to establish best practices for staying safe from the effects of COVID-19 – indoors and out.

That’s where a quality air filtration system comes into play, and it plays a crucial part in maintaining a healthy indoor air flow that will help protect individuals at the office and at school.

Below are a few ways quality filtration upgrades – when paired with other best practices – can help limit the effects of COVID-19 to help us breathe better as we social distance.

Air Filtration Works with a Larger Strategy to Maintain Cleaner Air

A larger strategy for dealing with the effects of COVID-19 indoors has already been proven to improve conditions. This larger strategy entails precautions such as social distancing, wearing cloth facemasks, washing hands thoroughly and often, and frequent surface cleaning and disinfection.

When working in tandem with this larger strategy, updating the building’s air filtration system is more likely to be effective in further limiting the spread of the virus and other particles that may be harmful to breathe.

Some Filters Have Been Effective at Removing a SARS-CoV-2 Virus

According to the National Air Filtration Association, some filtration systems have been effective at removing SARS-CoV-2 particles, which are spread by the virus that causes COVID-19. Based on this information, filtration upgrades may be used as another tool in limiting the virus’s spread.

In order for filtration upgrades to be effective, the virus and its particles must be transmitted through an airborne route, and the filters must be installed and maintained by the appropriate air recirculation system for the particular building.
