Indoor Air

Improving Indoor Air Quality for the benefit of You, Your Family, Your Staff and Customers

Regarding COVID19 air borne transmission

The airborne transmission of COVID19 is largely accepted by the scientific community, notable in poorly ventilated public spaces (see Morawska & Milton 2020). Air borne particles have been shown to remain active in air for up to 3 hours. These areas include: areas of restaurants with limited ventilation, lifts, bathrooms and restrooms, closed office spaces including dentist and doctor consultation rooms, etc.

A key scientific recommendation towards minimising the risk of air borne transmission is to Supplement general ventilation with airborne infection controls such as local exhaust, high efficiency air filtration, and germicidal ultraviolet lights.

For this reason AOM Australia now distributes and designs/manufactures a range of high efficiency indoor air filters that go beyond simple high efficiency particle filtration.

Why worry about indoor air?

The Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment states the following regarding indoor air (link):

It is generally recognised that Australians spend 90% or more of their time indoors. Despite this, relatively little research has been done on the quality of air in our homes, schools, recreational buildings,restaurants, public buildings, offices, or inside cars.

Poor indoor air quality can result in significant adverse impacts on our health and environment. Moreover, these impacts carry a significant cost burden to the economy. The CSIRO estimates that the cost of poor indoor air quality in Australia may be as high as $12 billion per year (Brown, 1998). In recent years, comparative risk studies performed by the US EPA and its Science Advisory Board have consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health (US EPA, 1993).

Though the current knowledge of the impact on our health of Indoor Air Quality is limited, there is growing public awareness regarding indoor air quality resulting from the understanding that we spend so much time indoors.

The main reference material on indoor air quality is produced by the American Environmental Protection Agency (link here). The EPA references major indoor air pollutants as Particulate Matter (expressed in PM2.5 or PM10) as well as gaseous phase pollutants which include ozone, nitric oxide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). and particulate matter. They act as respiratory irritants, toxicants, and adjuvant or carriers of allergens.

The US EPA goes on to state that for certain pollutants, concentrations indoor can be up to between 2 to 5 times highers than outdoor air. The general recommendation to improving indoor air is to minimise the source (cigarette smoke, cooking smoke, etc.), put in place sufficiency ventilation (notably to decrease mold and humidity) and to employ indoor air cleaners.
