What is Air Scrubbing?
To us professionals here at SERVPRO of East Honolulu, air scrubbing is actually due to an air filtration device. This is a machine that cleans the air of particles that may be in your home. This could be something as simple as dust or clothing particles and as deadly as black mold.
Because air is such a vital source for all life sources, an air filtration device is crucial for most jobs. This is also important for cleaning and disinfecting for COVID-19, and soot particles in the air.
How does it work?
Our air filtration device simply takes in the air surrounding and traps the particles from various sources into the filter. From there it releases the air back, this is the same concept of a Brita filter or other water filtering devices.
We also call it a HEPA machine... why?
Well in order to make this process most effective with a track record of 97.99% we use a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter, when air drawn through the back of the machine it is run through the HEPA filter. That is the very reason why there is no returning particulates when the air is released from the machine. The filter is extremely efficient and catches almost anything.
These types of cleaning are great for hospitals and doctors who believe there are contaminants in the air. We also use air scrubbing after fire damages and mold remediation. But, it can also be used if one has respiratory issues.
Here at SERVPRO of East Honolulu with the state of the art machine, we can "clean" the air so to speak for easier cleaning.
