The World Health Organization pronounced COVID-19 to be a pandemic on March 13, 2020. Since the first few cases showed up in the United States, many people have been concerned about getting infected and spreading it to other members of their household. Many people are also concerned about letting anyone into their home, even a food delivery person or other service providers. Fortunately, installing an iWave purifier could help rid your Portland, OR, home of coronavirus and other infectious viruses and bacteria.
iWave Removes SARS CoV-2
The iWave manufacturer contracted with an independent, third-party laboratory to conduct tests of how well its products remove the SARS CoV-2 virus, which is the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, from the air and non-porous surfaces. After 30 minutes of running the iWave products, 99.4% of infectious SARS CoV-2 viruses were removed from circulation and hard surfaces.
Reduction of Coronavirus 229E
There are hundreds of known coronaviruses, and one of them is the 229E. This is one of the major viruses that cause the common cold. The iWave is more than 90% effective at removing it. If you’re tired of spreading colds from one person to another in your home, the iWave will get these viruses out of the circulating air.
How the iWave Works
The iWave uses a type of patented technology called needle-point bi-polar ionization. The unit creates an equal amount of negative and positive ions. Those ions break down passing particles, including viruses, bacteria, dust, pollen, dander, and more. The particles, including SARS CoV-2, are broken into their component elements, which are harmless.
