When To Use an Air Scrubber February 18, 2016 – Posted in: Blog, Scrubbers

An air scrubber is a portable air filter that takes out particles, odors, chemicals, and other pollutants from the air. It sucks in surrounding air, runs it through a filter and then pushes the now clean air out into the atmosphere. This machine is an effective tool that can be used in many situations to help improve air quality.

On the Worksite

Some worksites have many airborne pollutants. Woodworking shops create a lot of dust. A construction site can have a lot of dirt and debris. Garages create debris and use chemicals. Some factories expose workers to a variety of chemical pollutants over extended periods of time.

All of these places are prime candidates to buy an air scrubber. It will keep the contaminants under control and make the air safer for employees.

When There is Water Damage

When it comes to water damage restoration, one of the first tools used is an air mover. This piece of equipment uses high-pressure air to quickly dry floors and carpets. While it forces water up, it also kicks up other, unwanted, things, such as carpet fibers, dirt, pet dander and possible mold and allergen spores.

Using an air scrubber in conjunction with an air mover will clean the air while the room dries, leaving it in possible better condition than it was before the leak.

After a Fire

Fire creates not only physical airborne contaminants such as soot and ash, but it also creates chemical ones. In this instance, an air scrubber makes an excellent piece of fire restoration equipment.

A filter that can remove carbon, as well as particles, helps to not only make the air safer to breathe, but it also removes the odors caused by the carbon, so there won’t be any lingering smells.

Sewer Damage

With sewer damage comes some very unpleasant odors. An air scrubber used during repairs will make the air more tolerable for workers.

Air quality is very important. Breathing in too many pollutants, physical or chemical can cause serious health issues. Air scrubbers work to make the air safer for all to breathe.
