IQ HealthPro Plus Air Purifier – St. Peters, MO
Breathe In Only the Best Air
With the outbreak of COVID-19, medical professionals and patients are more aware than ever of the need to maintain a clean healthcare environment. While daily sanitation and disinfection procedures do much to remove bacteria and viruses from surfaces, they cannot clean the air. That is why Dr. Cayo has invested in the IQ HealthPro air purification system. On this page, you will learn more about this advanced technology and how it is helping to keep you safe and healthy during your appointments with us.
The Need for Air Purifiers in Dental Offices
Did you know that indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air? Dust, pollen, dead skin cells, and various types of allergens can easily hide in carpet and in tiny nooks and crannies throughout a room. Motion can stir up some of those particles and cause the people who breathe them in to sneeze, cough, experience headaches, or even come down with illness.
Dental offices have a unique challenge when it comes to maintaining clean air. The very nature of dental procedures means that saliva and other bio-aerosols get released into the air during treatment. It is vital that practices have a dental air purifier in place that is capable of handling both typical air contaminants and bio-aerosols.
How the IQ Air HealthPro Plus Works
The IQ Air HealthPro Plus air purifier is a mobile air purification unit that features a HyperHEPA filter. Most residential and commercial air cleaning systems have a regular HEPA filter, which operates at about 37 percent efficiency. The HyperHEPA, on the other hand, enables the IQ Air HealthPro Plus to work at a staggering 99.5 percent efficiency. It can remove particles from the air that are as small as 0.003 microns — that is about ten times smaller than a typical virus!
The system also has patented 3D UltraSeal technology, which guards against internal leakage and ensures that any particles the air purifier captures will not sneak back into the surrounding air.
Benefits of the IQ Air HealthPro Plus in a Dental Setting
The IQ Air HealthPro Plus benefits both our patients and our dental team in several ways:
- The system cleans the air without generating harmful byproducts, such as ozone, UV, or dangerous ions.
