Why is Indoor Air Quality an Issue?

EPA calls IAQ one of top five environmental health risks of our time.

U.S. Companies could save as much as $58 billion annually by preventing sick-building illnesses and an additional $200 billion annually in worker performance improvements by creating offices with better indoor air.
- Fisk & Rosenfield,  Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Good IAQ Management will potentially reduce absenteeism by up to 30%.  Between 20% and 30% of the general office population suffers from reactions to poor IAQ ranging from mild headaches, nausea, dizziness, asthma, short-term memory loss, irritability, eye and throat irritation to possible nervous and respiratory system damage.

Without exception, water and moist organic material is the root cause of indoor bio-pollutant proliferation….  It is essential that dirt and water be removed to prevent conditions that promote microbial growth.
- Dr Michael Berry, Research Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Senior Research Scientist at the Research Triangle Institute.

Carpet that is maintained in a clean, dry condition does not support or cause mold growth.  CLEAN AND DRY = NO MOLD.

Our Process Improves IAQ

  • Removes particulates (soil, spores, allergens and bacteria) from carpet rather than moving them around
  • Works with HVAC to effectively reduce airborne particulates, bio-aerosols, and VOC’s
  • No water introduced into carpet to promote biological activity – No wet carpet smell
  • Removes odors from carpet
  • No VOC-emitting solvent carriers and fragrances
  • grass
