We are always conscious of the food and water we consume, and regulations are in place to ensure we are provided with clean water and have access to the nutritious food we need to keep us healthy. Our air is as important as healthy food and clean water for our health and wellbeing, There are many ways you can improve your air quality but first lets have a look at how your indoor air can become polluted.

The Truth About Indoor Air Quality And Pollution

So what exactly is air pollution? Particles or gasses that are not normally part of the air can affect our air quality. This is called air pollution and we normally associate it with our outdoor air but air pollution can also happen indoors. Listed are a number of ways your indoor air can become polluted:

  • You bring outdoor air inside any time you open a door or window and even leaks around windows and doors can let in polluted air. This can bring in; pollen, smoke, allergens like dust, pet dander and mould.
  • Humidity can also lead to higher dust mite levels.
  • Particles are released into the air by furnaces, wood burning fires and candles.
  • Cooking sends oil and fat particulates into the air.
  • Newly installed floors and furniture can release chemicals.

How to reduce indoor air pollution?

There are many ways you can reduce the source of allergens and irritants throughout your home and workplace. Installing an air purifier like Novaerus Air dis-infection can be one of the most effective ways to reduce indoor air pollution and we have also listed some handy tips and changes you can make to your indoor space to improve the quality of your indoor air.

Tips for improving the Quality Of Your Breathable Indoor Air

  • Establish regular cleaning routines.
  • Measure your home’s humidity levels and keep below 50%. If you live in a wet climate, you may need a dehumidifier.
  • Keep windows closed during peak pollen times or during times of high outdoor pollution.
  • Remove strong scents like candles and harsh cleaners. Replace traditional scented candles and potpourri with battery-powered ones.
  • If possible, replace carpets with certified asthma and allergy friendly solid surface flooring

Bedroom

 Air pollution and allergy control starts in the bedroom. You spend approximately 1/3 of your time in your bedroom. Allergens in your bedroom can impact your sleep if they make asthma worse. You can start by protecting and cleaning your bed.

  • Replace pillows every two years. Look for certified pillows or zippered allergen protectors. For a pillow or pillow cover to be certified it must have the following:
  • An outer fabric that blocks allergens like dust mites from passing through
  • Is made with a breathable fabric for your comfort
  • Can be easily cleaned to remove allergens
  • Can withstand the wear and tear of regular washing
  • Vacuum your mattress and box springs before covering them with certified allergen- barrier covers. Replace your mattress every 10 years.
  • Wash bedding weekly in hot, soapy water (130 F). Dry them on high.
  • Leave your bed unmade to let it cool and air out. Warmth and moisture from your body encourage dust mite growth.
  • Don’t let pets in the bedroom and never on the bed.

Bathroom

Mould thrives in wet or humid places like bathrooms.

  • Run a fan in your bathroom at least 15 to 20 minutes after showering.
  • Allow towels and washcloths to dry thoroughly after bathing.
  • Fix any leaks in or near sinks, toilets, tubs and showers.
  • Clean and remove m – check windows, showers, tubs, sinks, toilets and inside cabinets.
  • Check shower curtains for signs of mold and mildew and replace, if necessary.
  • Dust or rinse clean the exhaust fan covers.

 

Living Room

 The living room is the centre of activity in your home. That means it’s also a central location for many things that affect indoor air quality.

  • Reduce fabric in your living room that dust mites and other allergens can cling to and hide under.
  • Choose leather or vinyl furniture over fabric pieces.
  • Throw out the throw pillows. They are usually hard to clean, so they can easily collect dust mites and dander.
  • Instead of curtains, hang blinds you can dust often. If you choose fabric curtains, choose ones you can wash in 130 F hot water regularly.
  • Wash throw blankets weekly in 130 F hot water.
  • Remove clutter.
  • Dust ceiling fans and electronics.

Kitchen

The kitchen is a common place to find allergens like mound. These allergens can affect you all year long.

  • Fix leaks from your sink, dishwasher and refrigerator water line.
  • Remove mould – check sinks, inside cabinets, produce bins, trash cans and refrigerator seals.
  • Clean your in-sink garbage disposal with baking soda and white vinegar.
  • When buying produce, wash it before you put it away. Throw out produce before it grows mould, and clean the bins of your refrigerator often.
  • Don’t leave sources of water and food out at night for cockroaches. Remember to put away your pet’s dishes too.
  • Use lids on trash cans.
  • Store food in your cupboards and presses in airtight containers.
  • Clean up spills right away.
  • Don’t let dirty dishes pile up on the counter or in your sink.
  • Wipe down the tops of your cabinets and vent hood often with warm, soapy water. These areas are often overlooked.

Cleaning

It’s important to establish a regular cleaning routine to remove allergens. It’s equally important that cleaning does not make your indoor air quality worse.

  • Wear a mask when cleaning or have someone else do the cleaning while you leave the area.
  • Use unscented or homemade cleaners or use a certified household cleaner
  • Avoid high VOC products. Look for products labeled low VOCs and only use them in well- ventilated areas.
  • Avoid aerosol cleaning products.
  • Use a certified vacuum weekly. Vacuum/mop under all furniture and vacuum furniture.
  • Wash curtains and rugs in water 130 F degrees or hotter.
  • Dust behind furniture, like dressers and nightstands.
  • Dust ceiling fans and light fixtures.
  • Dust high closet shelves.

Houseplants

If you have houseplants or potted herbs, make sure to prevent mould.

  • Plant them in sterile soil.
  • Only water them when the soil is dry.
  • Give them more light.
  • Use a fan to circulate air around the plant.
  • Trim dead leaves often.

How does Novaerus NanoStrike Technology work?

Novaerus is a ‘Kill’ technology and has been developed here in Ireland by the Novaerus team of scientists and engineers.

It utilizes a NanoStrike technology which is an atmospheric plasma discharge — the same type of discharge found in lightning strikes — to kill and deactivate harmful airborne microorganisms.

Inside the devices there are plasma coils which generate the plasma discharge and as air is drawn over the coils, airborne viruses, bacteria and spores are killed and deactivated at the DNA level on contact.

Microorganisms are exposed directly to the plasma discharge as opposed to by-products of the discharge as the air flows over the coils. This means no dangerous by-products or chemicals are released and they are safe to use for the elderly, children or those who are vulnerable and sick.

Is Novaerus NanoStrike technology safe for use by all – older, younger, more vulnerable – all of the time?

Yes, they are medical grade devices and were developed for hospital settings to kill airborne viruses, bacteria and spores long before Covid-19 emerged. They have no dangerous by-products or chemicals which means they can be used 24/7 around children, the elderly, or those who are vulnerable and sick. One of the most prominent of the safety standards which Novaerus has achieved is the Californian Air Review Board (ARB) which is recognised as being the most stringent in the world. Considered the Gold Standard for emission safety standards, ARB has tested and certified Novaerus against their stringent low ozone test requirements as being safe for use around people.

Where are Novaerus devices designed and manufactured and how long have they been on the market?

NanoStrike technology represents a decade of innovation at Novaerus, a Dublin-based company with its HQ in the DCU Alpha Innovation Campus. Novaerus’ mission has always been to prevent pathogen spread. The company’s devices, commonly installed in critical-care units and operating theatres, have long protected hospital patients from infectious outbreaks of all kinds – influenza, norovirus, tuberculosis, MRSA, aspergillosis, measles. With the emergence of Covid-19 in 2020, devices have since been sold across every sector – in 65 countries worldwide – including hospitality, retail, medical, construction and more. Devices are manufactured here in Ireland in Co. Laois.

What testing has the technology undergone and is the technology licensed in Ireland/EU?

Novaerus is driven by proof, facts and research and the technology has been rigorously tested in over 30 independent laboratories worldwide and here in the Novaerus lab which is staffed by world class scientists. Novaerus devices are CE marked against the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) 2014/35/EU and conform to Medical Grade Equipment in medical facilities. Novaerus NanoStrike technology has also been deemed safe and effectual by over 30 independent Institutions such as Korean KTC, Mexico NOM, Canada CUL, California CARB and UL (U.S). The Novaerus Defend 1050 device has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration of America as a Class II Medical device [Jan 2021] Devices are being used in Irish hospitals such as St. James’ Hospital Dublin, Naas General Hospital, Co. Kildare and The Leopardstown Park Hospital Co. Dublin.

What is the cost of ownership of devices

As the NV200 and NV800 have no filters, there is little to no maintenance. This means no parts to be replaced, no training and no costly call outs from qualified technicians.

The NV800 has a “scrim” which should be removed and cleaned approximately once a month.  

The Defend 1050 has three filters, pre, carbon and HEPA. As the filters only deal with dead matter, your own staff can change them. The  annual cost of filter maintenance is *estimated at €1,300 per device (includes VAT) 

* prices subject to change

What is the expected lifespan of the device?

The design life/product lifespan of each device is approximately 5 years based on recommendation that devices are running 24/7

Should windows be closed when operating Novaerus devices?

The opening of windows can be complementary to using air purification devices depending on the contamination level of the outside air and provided there is no HVAC system in the building designed specifically to heat, cool and ventilate rooms.
