Reducing Odors from Wildfire Smoke, Mold and Mildew after a Natural Disaster
Storms & wildfires come with little warning, and the damage they leave behind can be devastating. Mold can spread throughout a property in as little as 48 hours. Wildfire smoke can penetrate thick wooden beams and other porous surfaces. Because these particles and spores can be microscopic, they can take root in tiny crevices of every corner in your home, leaving lingering odors. This can also lead to health problems, particularly for those who have respiratory sensitivities. Because the air we breathe travels to our heart, lungs and brain, the organic compounds and ultrafine particles found in wildfire smoke, mold and mildew can be especially hazardous.
To solve the problem of wildfire smoke, mold or mildew in your home or office, it’s important to look for solutions that will safely penetrate porous surfaces such as wood and fabric. With GreenTech Environmental’s Active Radiant Catalysis (ARC®) technology, spaces can be deodorized, and spores and other volatile organic compounds deactivated while surfaces are still being dried or cleaned, helping to make cleanup simple and fast. For homeowners and contractors looking to remove the smell of wildfire smoke, mold or mildew in spaces up to 1,500 or 3,000 square feet respectively, the pureAir 1500 and pureAir 3000 will continuously clean and disinfect all exposed surfaces, including walls, ceilings, floors, carpets, furniture, clothing, and countertops in as little as 24 hours. There are also commercial-grade solutions that can be installed into existing HVAC or PTAC systems or alternatively mounted to a wall for continuous purification of offices, restaurants, classrooms, and other multi-use spaces.
GreenTech Environmental’s residential and commercial products are highly effective at removing strong or stubborn smells because the each pureAir solution works at the source to neutralize harmful compounds and continuously sanitize surfaces by providing three powerful cleaning technologies in a variety of simple-to-use devices that can be configured for any size room or indoor space to improve the air quality. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has well documented the potential impacts of indoor air quality on human health, especially as Americans, on average, spend 90% of their time indoors. They specifically note that chronic exposure to poor indoor air quality can lead to headaches, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath, skin rashes and other allergic reactions.
The cleansing power of the pureAir family of products comes from GreenTech’s proprietary ARC® technology. These active air purification systems are different from traditional filters in the same way that using a cat to catch a mouse is different from using a mouse trap. ARC® technology hunts down contaminants at the source, not relying on air passing through the unit. During the cleaning process, a Photocatalytic Oxidation reaction creates a plasma of bi-polar ionization and propels safe and effective hydroxyls, or reactive cleaning agents, into the air that are 1 million times more effective at destroying the source of odors at the molecular level than traditional passive air filtration devices. ARC® breaks down up to 99% of odors, mold, bacteria and other harmful pathogens in less than 24 hours. Best of all, it is completely safe to use around children and pets and won’t cause any damage to sensitive materials such as wallpaper, artwork, leather, clothes or other household valuables.
With ARC® technology, families can stay in their homes and businesses can remain open. This is because unlike traditional filters, pureAir technology doesn’t just capture or cover-up wildfire smoke, mildew, and other odors, but instead quickly breaks apart each odor-causing particle.
GreenTech Environmental’s purification technology is earth friendly and creates a healthier indoor living environment by removing harmful elements from the air you and your family breath every day. In the process, all exposed surfaces are disinfected, leaving behind no chemical residue. Choosing the right pureAir product for your home or business is easy, giving you the power to continuously neutralize and remove odors and other pathogens in a variety of spaces.
The safety and simplicity of ARC® technology provides enormous peace of mind and flexibility for residential use and commercial applications alike.
