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
