Ion emissions come into contact with mold spores and transfer the proteins into clean air. This includes but is not limited to Black Mold, Pennicillium and Aspergillus.
Lab testing has proven significant and nearly complete reduction in airborne and surface bacteria (on fomite surfaces), and in only a short time of running the Atmos Air system. This includes E Coli, and many other common harmful bacteria. The ions destroy the
virus surface structure, neutralizing viruses such as influenza, measles, candida and the common cold . As a
result, the virus cannot infect even if it enters the body.
Smoke mitigation is a strength of the Atmos Air system and will help a facility reduce the complex contaminants that make up smoke. Atmos Air Bi-Polar ions sorround the VOC and break down hydrocarbon chains that ultimately make up these complex compounds into immeasurable levels of CO2 and water. Up to 90% of VOCs are oxidized (broken down) to simple, harmless elements.
We live in a world where there are so many things that can contribute to a decline in health, and many of those things go either unnoticed, or are things people would never even think about. Many of these things go unnoticed because they are airborne, but as insignificant as they seems, these things can be very dangerous over a long time of exposure. One in particular is fragrance.
When it comes to fragrances, there is a wide array of different types, such examples include anything from shampoo and toothpaste to colognes and perfumes, which are considered to be used only occasionally, but many people overlook that most household objects from soap and cleaners, to candles and fresheners also all contain fragrance. As the fragrance industry has grown, there are now scents and fragrance added to things such as food, trash bags, and even plastic pots, mainly to cover up undesirable smells of other chemicals used in the products.
When you think about it, between personal care items, cleaners and household products, just about everything ever imagined contains fragrance. What that means is that the average household contains an almost infinite amount of airborne chemicals circulating within their home.
In a study that was presented at the EPA/Air & Waste Management Conference, there are over 3000 different chemicals commonly used in products that contain fragrance. These chemicals have proven to cause short term effects such as fatigue, headaches, respiratory irritations and can incite allergies.
While some may consider those things to be pretty insignificant, the long term effects have proven to cause severe health problems including lung disease, brain damage, cancer, and can even affect a baby's developmental health BEFORE it is even born!
