Business Spotlight: Pure Air Environmental
As we head into cold and flu season, it’s wise to think about air purification, especially since according to the state health department, 195 Hoosiers died from influenza last year. Pure Air Environmental is an authorized distributor of the Puradigm Air Purification and Surface Decontamination system, which eliminates 99.9 percent of bacteria through the air and indoor surfaces. This includes removing any single-cell bacteria such as staph, MRSA, listeria, salmonella, C. Diff, influenza, common cold and many other harmful pathogens.
“This technology really applies to everyone. If you’re breathing, you will benefit from Puradigm,” says Pure Air Marketing Director Jon Hartley.
Old-school technology was extremely passive, allowing air to simply pass through your ventilation system while UV light attempted to remove mold and allergens in the ducts only. It really did very little to improve the overall indoor air environment. Hartley describes the Puradigm system as an aggressive, proactive push technology.
“It’s advanced now to the point where it’s proactively pushing two million high-energy ion clusters out into your physical environment which destroy impurities and pathogens in 1/76th of a second in the air and on surfaces,” Hartley says. “That’s why it’s so effective and protective.”
Not only does the Puradigm air system remove bacteria, but it also has been clinically proven to remove 99.9 percent of mold and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) that are off-gassing from new building products such as glues, adhesives, formaldehyde and even the plastics and materials that are in building products themselves. VOC’s are a concern as the vast majority have been linked to carcinogens.
Pure Air Environmental, a small family-owned business, began five years ago as a radon mitigation company.
“Indiana has a great deal of radon gas due to our soil material,” Hartley says. “What’s in our substrate beneath our homes gets up into them and it can’t escape because we’ve built our homes so airtight.”
Ventilating radio-active gas from homes is crucial as statistically 21,000 Americans die each year due to long-term radon gas exposure. Protection is as easy as installing a radon mitigation system to safely vent the gas to the exterior. The EPA recommends testing your home every two years as radon gas levels fluctuate due to environmental factors.
Pure Air Environmental also cleans air ducts and offers mold remediation services to remove black toxic molds and the toxins they’re off-gassing. You may not think much about indoor air quality, but Hartley says people really should. The EPA recently released a study that showed that poor indoor air quality can reduce one’s life expectancy by 5-7 years. Hartley also cites another study that identifies indoor air quality as the number one threat to our children’s generation in the coming years. That’s due, in large part, to the fact that society functions differently nowadays.
“Generations ago, people used to open their windows and let their homes breathe,” Hartley says. “Now the thought is on energy efficiency and we seal them up tight. Nobody opens their windows anymore. As a result, they’re not getting that fresh air exchange and building those immunities to bacteria by being exposed to natural environments.”
It can be hard to convince people of the dangers of poor air quality because it’s not a tangible problem in front of them. It often times does not alert any of your five senses. That’s why air quality testing is so vital.
“It’s important to know what you’re breathing in your home and what you are putting in your lungs because it does make a health difference,” Hartley adds. “Every breath matters.”
