The main mechanism for transmission of COVID-19 is through person-to-person spread. COVID-19 is a relatively contagious virus and has been observed to have more super spreading events than the flu. Small virus-laden aerosolized droplets can remain suspended in the air and travel long distances(>1m).
Per the CDC from studies done by mechanical engineers, HVAC systems can facilitate the spread of COVID-19 due to the fact that aerosols tend to follow the direction of the airflow caused by these units. Ventilation and filtration are key in combating the spread and most units do not do an adequate job of either. This is especially true of self-contained PTAC units that are commonly used in hotel rooms and assisted living facilities.
The BIOPROTECTUsTM (Antimicrobial) System uses patented and EPA registered technologies to modify surfaces, providing such surfaces with disinfecting and durable long-term antimicrobial protection that kills and prevents the growth of problematic bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoans, viruses, and other microorganisms that can decrease the effectiveness of HVAC systems.
The BIOPROTECTUsTM System of products has been 3rd party tested and is FDA and EPA registered. All of our products are safe and non-toxic and can be used in almost any environment. Additionally, our products are environmentally friendly and are completely water-based. BIOPROTECTUsTM uses ZERO Triclosan, heavy metals, arsenic, titanium, phenols, or poisons
Application of the BIOPROTECTUsTM System of products, when used in a 2-step system* includes:
- SmartTouchTM disinfectant kills mold with a 99.999% kill rate in 10 minutes without VOCs or toxic chemicals
- BIOPROTECTUsTM biostatic surface protectant continues to inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria in HVAC ductwork for up to 90 days*System steps 1 and 2 are applied by either misting or fogging the ductwork and registers
- A recommended Step-3 is the installation of submicron air filters that remove down to 0.1 microns, particles that can include viruses that contribute to colds and flu, allergies, and asthma caused by mold.
*Most systems can be retrofitted with this filter
Taking the aforementioned steps helps to ensure your HVAC system is reducing the spread of COVID-19. While nothing is 100% effective, it is important for us all to do what we can to defeat this virus.
