Over the past year and a half, we’ve all become more conscious of the air we breathe. Many of us have found comfort gathering outdoors, breathing in the fresh air. As temperatures drop, however, most people will have little choice but to spend most of their time indoors once more. Spending long periods inside can cause illness and discomfort if the indoor air becomes stale. Fortunately, there are many ways to improve indoor air quality (IAQ), namely through different methods of air purificatio...

When the COVID-19 pandemic first gained attention in late 2019/early 2020, few of us could have predicted that the world would still be battling SARS-CoV-2 and its variants over a year and a half later. Unfortunately, this modern pandemic is far from over, and experts believe that we may continue dealing with COVID-19 indefinitely. The good news, however, is that top medical researchers and providers have learned a lot about this novel coronavirus since it initially emerged. Today, we have acces...

Indoor air quality (IAQ) has come into greater focus over the past year and a half due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. After all, SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and its variants primarily spread through the air. To keep their doors open, retain a steady stream of customers, and keep all occupants safe, many businesses have redoubled their efforts to purify the air inside their buildings. Improving IAQ is a multi-faceted effort, requiring an integrated approach between various syst...

We might not be able to see the air that surrounds us, but the quality of said air can nevertheless have a major impact on our health and well-being. A multitude of airborne contaminants can make their way inside buildings, including bacteria, dust, fungal spores, pollen, and, of course, viruses -- the pandemic triggered by SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the disease known as COVID-19) continues to surge due to indoor air transmission (both airborne and aerosolized), and considering that most ...

Despite the swift rollout of highly effective vaccines against COVID-19, this pandemic is far from over. We now find ourselves in a race against the clock to limit mutations of the novel coronavirus that first appeared in late 2019, such as the infamous Delta variant. Fortunately, experts have learned a lot about this virus over the past year and a half. For instance, all evidence indicates that the primary means of COVID transmission is via respiratory droplets and airborne particles carrying t...

The hospitality industry took a major blow in 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as vaccines continue to roll out and case numbers decline across the country, hotels, venues, and other public spaces are looking to rebound this summer. This major increase in demand is undeniably great news for hotel owners, but those who aren’t prepared to handle such an influx of guests this year may find themselves struggling to keep their customers satisfied. You’...

In 1972, the American Lung Association (ALA) instated “Clean Air Week” in May to inform the public about how air quality can affect one’s respiratory health. Two decades later, in 1994, the ALA expanded this initiative, devoting the entire month of May to clean air awareness. This year and last, Clean Air Month has a renewed importance in the wake of COVID-19. Top scientists and researchers have discovered that the primary method of COVID-19 transmission is via respiratory droplets in the ...

Every type of facility must adhere to certain cleanliness standards and healthcare facilities most of all. Healthcare institutions like hospitals process and retain countless individuals, many of whom harbor transmissible diseases and/or are susceptible to further illness from others and their surrounding environment. It’s imperative, then, that these facilities constantly remain clean and sanitary for the benefit of all patients, staff, and visitors. Let’s go over how to make sure your hosp...
