What Is a Premie Air Scrubber and How Does It Work?
If you think you are protected from air pollution inside the comfort of your home, you are sadly mistaken. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor environments are around 2-5 times as polluted as the air outdoors, and occasionally up to 100 times as polluted! The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental dangers facing our planet. As the temperatures drop and we start spending more time indoors, the quality of our indoor air becomes more and more important to our health and well-being. While there is little you can do to affect the quality of the air outdoors, there is a lot you can do to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) at home. If you have a forced air system in your home, there are many different modifications you can make to your existing HVAC system to improve the quality of the air you breathe.
When researching ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ), you may have come across information on the Premie Air Scrubber. But what exactly is it and how does it work?
What is the Premie Air Scrubber?
The Premie Air Scrubber technology is used by mold remediation specialists, renovation companies, and other job sites to help improve the surrounding air quality. It is used in Hospitals, some nursing homes, some day cares, the technology was even used in the Pentagon after 9/11 to clean and purify the air. Large water restoration companies use a portable form of the Premie Air Scrubber to wipe out mold and odors from these water and fire emergencies. The Premie Air Scrubber can also be installed in your ductwork and become a permanent fixture inside your home.
How Does The Premie Air Scrubber Work?
The Premie Air Scrubber doesn’t just treat the air, it also helps to clean the surfaces of your home, such as countertops, bathrooms, kitchens, and doorknobs. The Premie Air Scrubber is designed to fit into your existing HVAC system. Installed directly into your forced air duct system, The Premie Air Scrubber utilizes many different technologies to clean and purify the indoor air.
When your air conditioner, fan, or furnace gets turned on, air flows through the titanium dioxide-coated honeycomb matrix.
When inside, the airborne contaminants pass through a strong UV germicidal light which works to disrupt the DNA of any airborne contaminants to render them useless. Once the DNA is scrambled, the active pollutants effectively die. Air filters can trap pollutants, but only air purification systems such as Premie Air Scrubber actually kills the contaminants and pathogens in your home.
Many people who think they are allergic to dust are actually allergic to dust mites, microscopic creatures that are just as alive as any other living creature. When living things like dust mites get zapped by UV light, they die.
The Premie Air Scrubber goes beyond just UV rays. While germicidal UV rays can reduce airborne contaminants that pass through its powerful rays, The Premie Air Scrubber technology actively sends air scrubbers into the indoor environment.
As the airborne contaminants pass through the Premie Air Scrubber technology, they are transformed into powerful oxidizers, which get disseminated into the environment, helping to eliminate pathogens in the air and on surfaces.
Reactive metals combined with UV light and a honeycomb catalytic process transforms the particulates into charged clusters of hydrogen and oxygen (hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyls, and superoxide ions), which are antimicrobial agents found in nature.
The oxidizers get released back into your air to help reduce contaminants in the home, both in the air and on surfaces. The scrubbers are effective against gases, vapors, VOCs, and offensive odors.
Once released, the particles become supercharged (superoxide ions and hydroxyls) to attack and destroy contaminants, fungi, mold, and odor-causing bacteria. Even the contaminates that hide underneath cushions and rugs get found and eliminated by the charged ions. The charged “air scrubbers” get rid of the microscopic impurities that are invisible to the human eye.
The Premie Air Scrubber also has ability to combat strong odors from pets, household products, smoke, and more.
