Can Air Disinfectant And Purifiers Help To Protect From COVID-19 In The Home?

Updated: Aug 14

Studies show that wearing a mask appropriately and reliably practicing social distancing can lessen the spread of the (COVID-19) as the virus spread through the means of respiratory droplets. It is important to understand that the novel coronavirus is mainly transmitted from person to person. Droplets can infect others when you cough or sneeze. Therefore, it is important to avoid close contact with other people. Keep in mind that people can become infected with the novel coronavirus and may only show mild symptoms.

Due to worries about conceivable airborne transmission many individuals consider air purifiers, as well. How do the different kinds of air cleaners work is a big question. Are any of them successful against COVID-19? What's more, would it be a good idea for you to get (at least one) for your home?

What are the various types of air purifiers?

Most air cleaners fall into two primary categories: filters or disinfectants. Some integrate each type into a single unit. The filter is designed to enhance indoor air through the physical disposal of a number of tiny debris that can float around—including dust, pollen, and pet dander. These are all cases that occur naturally, but people can have an allergic reaction if they inhale them. Sanitizers are designed to kill bacteria, viruses, mildew, or fungal spores that may be floating around. But at the same time, they can make you unhealthy if you are exposed to high concentrations of these.

Here we recommend using a purifier+disinfectant. The products like Wellis Air are using OH radical technology to disinfect the air, as well as the surfaces, which comes under its range. Due to surface disinfectant quality Wellis air is also effective in killing coronaviruses as the virus has been reported to be spread through the means of respiratory droplets.

What is Wellis Air?

Wellis Air Disinfection units are made to clean out the air pollutants. These are operated with proven OH Radical technology. They can eliminate 99.9% of surface as well as airborne contaminants. These are offered with proven technology and are used in hospitals. Wellis Air ensures the removal of various harmful substances such as bacteria, viruses, harmful gases, germs, and mold. Also, Wellis air can remove respiratory allergens and is highly efficient for the disinfection of contaminated environments.

Technology Used In Wellis Air:

The Sun's ultraviolet rays combine with moisture in the air to form atmospheric hydroxyls that clean and protect Earth's environment. Wellis Air's patented technology mimics Mother Nature to provide a continuous stream of hydroxyl that destroys contaminants on both surfaces and in the air.

Wellis Air uses a new, innovative, and Advanced hydroxyl radicals technology that manages to efficiently generate and expand hydroxyl radicals (OH), utilizing Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP), eliminate up to 99.9% of pathogenic microorganisms (viruses and bacteria). and, at the same time, reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and PM particles.

According to a study published in the scientific journal IJERS "International Journal of Engineering Research and Science," hydroxyl radicals, in addition to being efficient at disinfecting air and surfaces, are a harmless way to humans.

The OH hydroxyl radical is often called the "detergent" of the atmosphere, since it reacts with many pollutants, initiating the process of purifying them. It plays an important role in the elimination of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.

The importance of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) is that their application destroys the contaminant and does not concentrate it or transfer it to the environment. In this way, a total or almost total mineralization of organic pollutants is achieved, that is, they have application in the destruction of the vast majority of organic compounds, especially in non-biodegradable compounds such as organochlorines, PCBs, PAHs, etc. It is a clean and safe technology.

Hydroxyl radicals have excellent advantages over the 3 main chemical disinfectants based on chlorine, alkalis, and amoni-alcohol-alkali.

Recently MRI Global has certified that the Wellisair Model WADU-02 disinfection purifier device has the ability to decrease viral infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro after exposure.
