What are air scrubbers?
Air scrubbers, or negative air machines, are a portable air filtration machine. It draws air from the surrounding area and passes that air through a series of filters. These filters efficiently remove particles from the air to improve indoor air quality.
Why does SERVPRO use Air Scrubbers?
The goal of every restoration job is to safely and efficiently return the indoor environment to preloss condition for the customer. Any job that involves cleanup of sewage, mold and or fire damage will generate significant amounts of particulates and odoriferous gases. These contaminants are a direct result of the damage itself, as well as the necessary process of treating and cleaning damaged materials. An air scrubber helps prevent these undesirable and potentially harmful particles and gasses from remaining in the indoor environment.
Mold remediation projects can release large quantities of mold and fungal spores into the air. These indoor air pollutants can affect the health and comfort of occupants. Air scrubbers are equipped with multiple pre-filters for removal of visible airborne particles. The final stage filter, HEPA, captures microscopic particles and microbes such as fungal spores. HEPA filters can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns.
