With every crisis, there is opportunity. The pandemic has taught us infectious diseases can spread in many ways. Previously, the priority for infection control has been handwashing, sanitizing surfaces, and covering your mouth when you cough. Now, the priority is the air we breathe.
Keep in mind: where there’s fire, there’s (deadly) smoke! Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mark Ereth, is raising awareness about the dangers wildfires pose when it comes to air quality.
Indoor agriculture is a highly scientific process that requires attention to light and nutrients – but it’s just as important to focus on healthy air quality. Dr. Mark Ereth, SecureAire’s Chief Medical Officer, recently reviewed the science on the risks to plants grown indoors from poor air quality.
HEPA filters have been a staple in air purification since 1942. Lessons from COVID-19 remind us that the smallest particles and pathogens often remain suspended indefinitely. HEPA cannot filter these and other toxins that remain suspended and never get to the filter media. The latest research proves that SecureAire is better than HEPA – because we should measure particles within our breathing space, not just at the filter.
May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. Approximately 25 million Americans – including five million children – are affected by asthma, which is worsened by pollen in the spring and other pollutants. Americans with asthma and allergies can protect themselves and their loved ones by installing air purification in their homes and businesses. Clean air to breathe is a critical part of addressing respiratory diseases.
SecureAire’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mark Ereth is a national expert on air quality and health. He recently spoke with Bruce Finley of the @denverpost on the worsening air quality resulting from #wildfires and dust.
