AeraMax Pro offers tips to minimize cost of flu season
Company says health risks and high costs of absenteeism can be lessened through use of targeted air purification

By Brianna Crandall, September 30, 2015—As the winter flu season approaches, a special report from AeraMax Professional highlights how some of the major ramifications of the influenza virus — including health risks and high costs of absenteeism — can be lessened through the use of targeted air purification.

Influenza is responsible for an estimated 17 million lost workdays and 38 million missed days of school in the United States each year, which is why facilities managers and executives need to ensure clean air filtration in schools, offices, and other areas where people gather during the upcoming flu season.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that airborne exposure is the most common form of flu transmission. That is why AeraMax Professional is working with facilities nationwide to remove infectious particles and other contaminants from the air. An independent test found that a commercial-grade air purifier eliminated 99.9 percent of airborne flu particles in a virus-filled room in only 35 minutes, according to the company.

"We want to give facility managers and executives as much information as possible on how to minimize the effects of flu season," said Jeff Dryfhout, AeraMax Professional's director of global marketing. "Cleaning surfaces and hand-washing are only a small part of the solution."

As flu season approaches, AeraMax Professional is raising awareness of indoor air quality, specifically how cleaning the air is imperative to infection prevention. The special report focuses on four main points:

  • The flu is costly and can be extremely detrimental.
  • Traditional prevention methods are not enough.
  • Airborne exposure is the most common way to catch the flu.
  • Small virus particles can travel throughout rooms.

To learn how to mitigate the costly effects of the flu virus, read the full Flu Season Special Report on the AeraMax Professional Web site. It is available upon brief registration.

AeraMax Professional's high-performance air purification product line for the commercial sector was developed with patented EnviroSmart technology that responds to the environment, allowing for efficient and low-maintenance operation. It is designed to reduce airborne contaminants in common areas such as restrooms, schools, healthcare facilities, and other areas with higher levels of airborne contaminants. AeraMax Professional is part of Fellowes Brands.
