Coronavirus and Air Purification
Do you have questions about air purification and the Coronavirus? The biggest news story of 2020 is the Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19. On March 11th, 2020 the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus as a worldwide pandemic. Here are some helpful tips about air purifiers that can help keep your family healthy during this time.
What is the best air purifier?
One product that our team has had good success with is an air purifier called the Air Scrubber, made by Aerus. The Air Scrubber utilizes ActivePure® technology to protect air and surfaces 24 hours a day.
What is ActivePure® technology?
ActivePure® technology goes far beyond traditional air cleaning system. It’s also the only air cleaning technology to receive the prestigious Certified Space Technology seal of approval by the Space Foundation. The Space Certification program was created in cooperation with NASA. Watch the video below to learn more.
How does the Air Scrubber work?
Microscopic oxygen and water molecules in the air enter the purification unit and pass through the ActivePure® honeycomb matrix. While inside the molecules transform into friendly, yet powerful oxidizers. Once released the molecules become supercharged purification warriors. Like an army on a mission, they seek to rapidly destroy contaminants, fungi, mold, and odor causing bacteria. In many cases ActivePure® is combines with ionization to destroy smoke and odors.
Is the Air Scrubber safe?
The Air Scrubber is completely safe for your family and your pets. Air purification is also effective against numerous air contaminants. In 1993, Harvard University even published a study showing that improving air quality can help extend your lifespan. Who doesn’t want that?

- H5N8 Avian virus
- Methycillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
- Bacillus Subtilis
- Stachybotrys Chartarum (Black Mold).
These University Tests have shown that ActivePure Technology can disinfect at least 96.4% and as much as 99.99% of surface contaminating and airborne viruses and bacteria within the first 24 hours after installation.
The University of Cincinnati test proved that within 30 minutes of installation the Air Scrubber reduced airborne contaminants by over 90%.
Air Scrubber’s with ActivePure® Technology has also proven effective for killing the influenza virus and reducing sick days related to flu dismissals.
It is important to note that the Air Scrubber air purifier has not been specifically studied against COVID-19, or Coronavirus. However, the Air Scrubber has been proven effective against similar viruses as shown above.
