Indoor Air Quality
Epi-Scope offers a complete solution for safely sanitizing homes, offices, schools,
medical facilities and other indoor locations.
Our Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® kills fungals, bacteria, and virus on contact, whether they are airborne, on surfaces, or in the HVAC system.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), has been a concern throughout history. It became a more acute issue with the development of modern air conditioning. HVAC units work by bringing in air from outside, cooling it, and circulating it inside. Whatever pathogens are outside, are now inside. Towards the end of the twentieth century, fungals became a primary issue. And the HVAC system itself became a perfect environment for them to colonize, thrive, and multiply. The HVAC unit became a dispersal system for airborne mold spores and other pathogens throughout the indoor structures.
With the rise of COVID-19, the concern for safe indoor air quality has heightened. How can we maintain safe indoor air?
The immediate concern has focused on short-term sanitization but not reoccurrence. The initial strategy was “spray and wipe.” A more complete solution is fogging both the inside living/working space and the HVAC system. This method is more effective. However, it provides a sanitized environment for just that moment in time. Pathogens are continuously reintroduced from outside air via the HVAC system. Pathogens are also brought indoors by people, animals, contaminated containers or other materials.
Pathogens such as fungals, bacteria, and virus become airborne. They get sucked into the HVAC system and are circulated throughout the indoor areas. An ideal solution would be a non-toxic, non-chemical substance which would effectively and safely sanitize the entire indoor environment including all surfaces, the indoor air, and the HVAC air handler and ductwork. And then maintain it over time.
Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® was developed for just this purpose. It is organic, non-GMO, and safe to breathe. It is not harmful to people, animals, or plants.
When the location is fogged, tiny droplets of Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® fill the rooms killing pathogens, rendering them inert. Most foggers are only capable of creating larger, wet droplets. Some foggers are capable of creating “dry” droplets which are much smaller. Epi-Scope offers commercial grade dry foggers. When the HVAC unit is fogged, the goal is to have the anti-pathogenic Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® fog reach the coil of the HVAC unit and then be dispersed through all of the ductwork. Pathogens are killed on contact. Pathogens build up a bio-film on the coil and in the duct work. Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti- Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® removes the bio-burden load, and the HVAC uses less energy and becomes more efficient.
A pathogen-free environment has now been created for the moment.
Post Fogging Maintenance
Because a large percentage of pathogens are airborne and continually re-induced into the environment after it has been sanitized, a continuous, more permanent solution is required. However, fogging need not be repeated.
We offer two devices that allow Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® to remain in the air and continue to kill pathogens 24 x 7.
For small locations, we offer inexpensive, portable, battery driven, Air Treatment Dispensers. They are recommended for smaller areas: individual rooms, homes, apartments, and other small locations. Each unit covers approximately a 12 x 12 area. Larger areas would require more than one. Each unit dispenses a small invisible mist of Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® into the air 24 x 7. The liquid in the Air Treatment Dispenser evaporates over time and needs to be replenished regularly. The batteries also run down and need to be replaced.
For larger locations, we offer a centralized unit that attaches directly to the HVAC system itself. The device is compact, no larger than a toaster oven. It is easy to install, with few moving parts, and weighs less than 10 lbs./5 kg. It has been designed for long life and virtually trouble-free maintenance.
At set intervals, a small quantity of Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® is dispensed directly into the HVAC system. The HVAC system distributes the Epi-Scope Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® throughout the entire structure via the ductwork and registers.
In each case, the liquid solution must be replenished. The frequency is dependent upon the location. Somewhere between 4-6 weeks is average. It depends upon the temperature, humidity, and airflow.
We have additional items which round out our Indoor Air Quality toolkit to provide a complete solution.
