Scrub Your Hands, Scrub Your Air


So, you’ve implemented all those new protocols to cover your mouth, wash and sanitize your hands and fist bump rather than shake hands.* But what about the air you breathe?

Studies show that air in our homes and offices can be up to 3-5 times more polluted than the air outside. This air keeps recirculating, not only in our lungs, but depositing that stuff on all the surfaces in our living spaces. Therefore, the question is how can you clean the air in your home?

What Do Astronauts and Hospitals Do?

Air scrubbers, such as the Aerus Air Scrubber, can provide the highest levels of protection against airborne microorganisms and contaminants available on the market today–both in the air AND on the hard surfaces throughout your home.

This particular scrubber has these key features:

  • NASA-certified**. Proven effective in the International Space Station, hospitals, schools, hotels and millions of homes.
  • Effective. The Aerus Air Scrubber works well against both bacterial and viral microorganisms such as MRSA, staph, strep, e-coli, listeria, swine flu, bird flu, Hepatitis A, norovirus, bacillus, pseudomonas, and more.
  • Proven. Independent testing verifies more than 99% reduction in harmful surface contaminants within 24 hours.

“Scrubs” Hard Surfaces As Well

In addition to purifying the air circulating in your home, the scrubber distributes a protective layer on surfaces throughout your home. You get the added benefit of disinfecting surfaces that you and your family come into contact with on an ongoing basis, without actually having to physically scrub the entire house.

Independent testing verifies that there is more than a 99% reduction in harmful microorganisms on surfaces within 24-hours of operation of the air scrubber.

Simple and Economical to Install

The Aerus Air Scrubber installs directly into your current heating and air conditioning system. No additional complex or expensive additions are necessary. The system treats the air that circulates throughout your entire home, helping to ensure you are breathing the most pure, safe air possible.

**The ActivePure® Technology built into each Air Scrubber by Aerus is based on a variation of the technology originally developed for use on the International Space Station and is recognized as the exclusive TechnologyTM in its category.

Protecting our families, neighbors and relatives starts with following the CDC guidelines below regarding the Coronavirus (COVID19), such as frequent handwashing and disinfecting touchpoints in our homes like doorknobs and faucets. ActivePure by no means replaces these protocols.

Given the nature of the Coronavirus virus and its potential health effects, many families will want to go above and beyond the CDC’s advice and protocols. ActivePure technology may be an additional tool to create the best environments possible.

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.
