The pandemic has created a more health-conscious population of people who are paying closer attention to their environment and needing more out of their indoor air quality. In a recent survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers from Carbon Lighthouse, 91% of responders understand how much poor indoor air quality influences the spread of COVID-19. Also in response to the pandemic, we’ve embraced virtual communication, entertainment and shopping, further steering people away from in-person interactions. According to live data taken from Morning Consult, up to 16% of adults reported spending “much more” money shopping online than they normally would since the start of the pandemic. When owners are reopening a business they need to consider multiple factors.
The retail, leisure and restaurant industries have taken a large hit, and many businesses are still teetering on the brink of permanent closure. In order to keep them afloat, it will require a lot of effort on the part of business owners to respond to the growing demand for better indoor air quality. To help aid in the transition back to normal, reopen business and welcome customers and patrons back into your establishment with advanced sanitization and air purification technology.
Consumers have caught on to the fact that indoor air pollution negatively impacts human health. Beyond promoting airborne transmission and inhalation exposure to the virus, poor indoor air quality could pose a risk to public health by:
With a dynamic mode of action, Pyure Technology provides continuous protection, killing live SARS-CoV-2 virus both in the air and on surfaces.
Although a lot of progress has been made with the rollout of several vaccines to prevent transmission of COVID-19, skepticism towards the vaccine’s effectiveness and a general mistrust of others to actively go get the vaccine prevents people from resuming their normal routines. According to Bankrate’s survey on the post-pandemic economy, 25% of respondents still plan on avoiding local restaurants and businesses even after they’ve been vaccinated.
Addressing all of these concerns while providing proven protection against SARS-CoV-2 is achievable with Pyure Dynamic Protection®. Tested in a real-life environment, Pyure reduced airborne SARS-CoV-2 by 99% in 20 minutes and surface-bound SARS-CoV-2 was reduced by 99% in one hour. Unlike conventional air purifiers, Pyure sanitizes both porous and non-porous surfaces and eliminates mold, mildew and odors.
Consumers look to businesses to uphold the highest standards of building protocols and policies to provide a safe, welcoming environment to spend time in. Taking a proactive approach to safely reopening a business could include exploring third-party health and safety certifications.
A performance-based rating system, the GBAC Star Facility Accreditation is a certification facility managers strive to achieve. This kind of recognition validates a facility’s procedures, work practices and operational systems as effective methods to prevent, respond to and recover from an outbreak. The proven effectiveness and reliability of Pyure Dynamic Protection® as a defence against pathogens and harmful bacteria will help facilities to showcase their stringent cleaning and disinfecting protocols during inspections.
As society slowly begins to re-open and social gathering becomes available in growing capacities, instilling confidence in consumers by prioritizing indoor air quality is the first step to going back to normal.
