Now more than ever, we’re thinking about the quality and safety of the air we breathe – in our schools, workplaces, and social places. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors where certain pollutants are often 2-5 times more concentrated than they are outdoors. With the advent of a global pandemic, many people spend even more time indoors, which brings to the surface a lot of questions about indoor air.
So let’s clear the air about Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and how professional cleaners can help improve IAQ by Cleaning for Health.
Q: What is IAQ, and why is it important?
A: According to the EPA, IAQ refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.
Dust is an airborne raft carrying unwanted matter throughout a facility. Cleaning pros help dramatically improve IAQ by removing dust along with small, invisible particulates: bacteria, pollen, pet dander.
Q: What’s an effective way to remove small, invisible particulates?
A: A ProTeam vacuum with ProLevel Filtration® lifts soil and dust from surfaces and sifts out smaller and smaller particles in multiple levels of filtration.
Cleaning for Health and ProLevel Filtration
By pairing powerful suction with ProLevel Filtration, ProTeam vacuums are 99.9% effective at capturing and containing particles at 1 micron and larger from surfaces. All ProTeam vacuum systems are tested by a third party for filter efficiency. The unique ProTeam method of suction vacuuming cleans surfaces while preventing particulate matter from being reintroduced back into the environment.
Q: How do ProTeam vacuums compare in terms of speed and efficiency?
A: According to ISSA Cleaning Times, a ProTeam backpack vacuum cleans 3 times faster than a corded upright, while a cordless backpack vacuum cleans 5 times faster. This gives back valuable time for other cleaning tasks, like disinfecting.
ProTeam is a proud partner of the American Lung Association. Together, we fight for clean indoor air so we can all breathe easier.
