An air scrubber works by using germicidal UV light waves along with a catalytic process to attack germs and other particles while they are still in the air or on surfaces. Most air scrubbers will effectively eliminate airborne and surface microorganisms after running 24 - 48 hours. For those homes with more extreme mold or pollutant problems, the time may need to be increased.
While both air purifiers and air scrubbers clean the air, they are different in how they operate. Air purifiers work to trap dust and contaminants before they cycle through your home. Air scrubbers use germicidal UV light waves coupled with a catalytic process to attack harmful particles while still in the air and on surfaces in your home.
Advant Air specializes in air purification systems as well as air scrubbing technology. We provide a number of different options on indoor air quality services to ensure the air in your home is clean and fresh. To schedule a consultation contact us today.

Common Reasons for Indoor Air Quality Problems
Indoor air quality problems exist for a variety of reasons, including:
5% – Bioaeresols – A bioaerosol (short for biological aerosol) is a suspension of airborne particles that contain living organisms or were released from living organisms.
15% – Inside Contamination – Inside contamination could be considered anything like cabinets, furniture, shelving, countertops, and even your carpet that not only contains dust and perhaps pet allergens, but certain items of this nature are made with a type of glue that contains formaldehyde.
10% – Outside Contamination – Outside contamination is any type of contaminant that makes its way into your home, such as pollen, dirt, and others.4% – Building Products – These have gotten better over time, with safety regulations and the EPA, but the most recent case of building products containing harmful components is in the case of those that cause mesothelioma. In addition to these fiber-based building components that can cause cancer, there are paints that contain harmful chemicals as well.
53% – Inadequate Ventilation – This is the most common reason for indoor air quality issues. Inadequate ventilation will not only allow biological components and harmful bacteria into your system but due to the ventilation being inadequate, it gives the bacteria a breeding ground.

Air Filters – Cleaners
Every HVAC unit needs to have a clean filter that will be changed every few months. These filters are literal barriers that trap small particles of dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergy irritants. The way they work is by being the very first thing air passes through in your return vent, but remember, a clogged filter is just as bad as no filter at all!
In addition to normal air filters, AdvantAir offers air scrubbers. Air scrubbers are the new, highly-efficient way of keeping your air clean. They are installed via a small hole in your ductwork, which is then sealed. The probes in your duct will use high-powered UV light to separate particles within the air molecules in your home, and uses oxygen as well as hydrogen to “scrub” the pollutants from your air. After a while of using one of these air scrubbers, your indoor air quality will skyrocket, and you will be healthier, and your home cleaner. The UV light will even kill small bacteria that is causing bad odors in your home and, with time, leave your home smelling fresh, and welcoming. Contact us today for your in-home consultation!
