Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) for Coronavirus in Mississippi


Purge Virus is pleased to provide these indoor air quality (IAQ Services) to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic and help increase safety and productivity for years to come beyond COVID-19 for businesses in Mississippi. 

Allergens, chemicals, and volatile organic compounds are all around us from products we buy to furniture and interior finishes. With many workplace environments that have closed windows and central HVAC systems, we are vulnerable to “Sick Building Syndrome” (SBS). According to ASHRAE, the estimated productivity decrement caused by SBS symptoms has an annual cost of $60 billion. A 20-50% reduction in these symptoms, considered feasible and practical, would bring annual economic benefits of $10 billion to $30 billion.

Clean Indoor Air = Safety and Savings

ASHRAE Estimated potential productivity gains from improvements in indoor environments.

Reduced respiratory illness: 16 to 37 million avoided cases of common cold or influenza: $6 – $14 billion

Reduced allergies and asthma: 8% to 25% decrease in symptoms within 53 million allergy sufferers and 16 million asthmatics: $1 – $4 billion

Reduced sick building syndrome symptoms: 20% to 50% reduction in SBS health symptoms experienced frequently at work by approximately 15 million workers: $10 – $30 billion

Improved worker performance from changes in thermal environment and lighting (beyond SBS): $20 – $160 billion

IAQ Services offered by Purge Virus include IAQ Assessment, IAQ Site Visit, PTAC Units, Mini Split Systems, and Ceiling Cassettes. These services will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and promote Indoor Air Quality for businesses in Mississippi.
