Whether it’s about boosting workplace efficiency or improving employee well-being, businesses must now pay more attention to enhancing their entire office surroundings. Consequently, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, most workplace quality improvements are being implemented in tandem with office COVID prevention efforts. So, why not invest in a system that protects everyone by eliminating over 99% of airborne SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) viral particles within 3 minutes?
How Air Purification Protects Workplaces from COVID-19
Aerosol research shows that respiratory particles may pass and stay airborne for longer periods, making proper indoor air hygiene a critical component for protection against coronavirus — and when we say “air hygiene,” nothing works quite like air purifiers. In addition to effective air cleaning, purifiers supplement the regular ventilation in offices, keeping viruses at bay.

Clean Air vs. Office Environment
It’s a universal truth that clean air makes a better, more productive, safe, and healthy office environment. The question is, how? Research from Harvard and Syracuse Universities reveals that the poor air circulating in most offices may be hindering worker performance.
To prove the research, some employees were requested to carry out their usual office responsibilities in a typical office building workplace. But on alternate days, the same employees were asked to repeat their specific tasks (this time with better ventilation). Results showed that employees in the pure air atmosphere outperformed those in the regular office setting by 61 percent. Moreover, the cognitive function improved by more than 100 percent by doubling the ventilation.
