Part 6 - What IAQ Issues Need to be Considered and Addressed?

What must be considered?
Before acquiring any type of air purifier or installing any kind of whole house or whole building system, it might be best to consider what the expected outcome should be and compare it with the capacities of the devices or systems to achieve those goals.

G. Are there medical considerations?

Medical considerations

1. Obligatory disclaimers.
Treatment can be more costly than prevention

a. None of the items Pro-active Environmental Technologies recommends and provides is currently rated as or to be considered as a medical device in the legal understanding and use of the term. Therefore, no medical claims are made for the use or the failure to use any of the offered equipment.

(Stay tuned, though, as we are anticipating some exciting news in this regard in the very near future.)

b. Neither Pro-active Environmental Technologies nor any of its suppliers diagnose or recommend treatment for any illness or disease. There are hosts of alphabet soup type regulatory bodies with which to deal in the medical arena, and we find our time and energies better used in other endeavors than responding to their onerous paperwork.

c. Information made available here directly or indirectly is tendered so that informed parties can make informed decisions.

2. Practical realities.

However, with the above’s being said, there are some aspects to consider which may have some "medical" or health implications in the broadest applications and understandings of the terms.

There are millions of people living in situations where indoor air quality has compromised their bodies' immune systems, has allowed them to become allergic, infected, and sick, and whose lives and lifestyles are far less than optimal as a result.

Epstein Barr Syndrome symptoms.
Epstein-Barr Symptoms –
Epstein-Barr Syndrome is often brought on by exposure to mold
and a resulting weakened immune system.

Straight common sense would dictate that any effective means by which pollutants, particulates, contaminants, pathogens, allergens, irritants, offensive odors, VOC's, dust and dust mites, mold and mold related problems, and other indoor air quality concerns are seriously reduced or eliminated will have a profoundly positive effect on anyone's health.

Imagine being so blessed as to be breathing truly purified air as a result of the presence and utilization of these wonderful and exclusive technologies where the body can concentrate on strengthening and healing instead of constant and preventable "housecleaning" chores!

Would living in such a pleasantly sanitary atmosphere heighten the risk of infection outside of such an improved environment? To the contrary, it seems only logical that allowing the immune system to balance out and rebuild itself free from the onslaught of polluted indoor air should potentially strengthen one's resistance to infections when out in public.
  • We can point to the results from sophisticated and structured tests showing what happens to pathogens and contaminants when exposed to our technologies.
  • We can conduct on site testing proving the efficacy of our technology in your living or working environment.
  • We can cite testimonials from those who claim that their lives and health have been greatly improved by utilizing our products and services. 
But only you can decide what is best for you, your family, and the air spaces over which you choose to take responsibility and take control, for that choice is yours and yours alone to make.

Our children have a right to hope!

If the pollutants our technology is designed to reduce or eliminate are making you or your loved ones sick, or even have the potential of doing so, it only makes sense that life with those pollutants reduced or removed will be healthier and happier.

H.   Are there legal and other considerations?

Legal considerations

Applications of these technologies have practical, economical, and legal implications. Having these systems in place will help insure against mold infestations so prevalent in the Gulf Coast climate and elsewhere. By all but eliminating any particulates, the indoor breathing space will not create a burden on the environs, and housekeeping will be much more easily accomplished and maintained. The oxidizing process neutralizes, abates, and eliminates most or all odors, including VOC's. By oxidizing pollen, mold spores, viruses, bacteria, microbes, and the like the living space or workplace will be much friendlier.

Even sneezes, which are expelled at 300 mph, are clinically proven to have 78% of their pathogens killed within three feet.) The SurfaceGuardTM Technology renders the surfaces sanitary, killing the countless hidden germs, pathogens, microbes, and mold spores better, faster, and more thoroughly than by any other safe method. The air is fresher, cleaner, purer, and much more enjoyable.

The effect is a far healthier indoor environment. A properly air purified workplace contributes to a more robust and attendant employee roster. It also guards against Sick Building Syndrome by reducing and eliminating the causes of same before they become pandemic. This translates into dollars because of lowered absenteeism and generally better output. The sanitized environment of a correctly air purified home lends itself to healthier, less stressed living. Sleep is enhanced because dust mites and their attendant problems become things of the past. Allergy and asthma sufferers testify to finding welcome relief as their respiratory loads are dramatically reduced.

Individual pieces within a Pro-active Environmental Technologies protected air purified environment - as well as the system in its entirety - comprise a combination of patented technologies which are considered the Best Available Today's Technology ("BATT"). That's peace of mind on a personal level that you are doing all that is possible for yourself and your loved ones in providing pure indoor air.

Using a BATT approach to your office or workplace IAQ needs, whether in an industrial, commercial, institutional, or hospitality setting dramatically lightens the concerns over liability and litigation actions having to do with IAQ issues. This means for the properly prepared client that, should an IAQ legal problem arise, for any building where these technologies are installed and utilized, there can be no finding of culpability or liability for ignorance or neglect (and hence, no settlement amount), in that the technologies employed represent the best attempt/s humanly possible to address IAQ problems. Period.

Passive technology is no match for Active Purification Technology.

I.  When is Timing an Issue?

Time considerations

As an environmental consideration, the sooner proper air purification equipment is installed, the lessTime is money, health, and life. of a build-up of indoor air contaminates will contribute to the overall health hazards of the occupants. If construction is old, mold colonies could already be forming in out of sight places while contributing to the declining air quality. Levels of dangerous toxic substances could already be reaching critical levels, and the sooner all negative contributors are neutralized, the better for all (except, perhaps, the lawyers).

Less than BATT.If the building is relatively new, VOC's, unless oxidized, will continue to accumulate as carpet, carpet underlayment, wall coverings, adhesives, paneling, laminates, furnishings, electronic equipment, treated fabrics, and other items are installed, moved in, or used. Further, the fact that construction may be new is no guarantee that mold spores have not taken residence or even already started forming colonies, especially where cinder block or wood might have been exposed to rain during the erection phase. The sooner that the Five-way Active Purification Technology provided by RCI™ is in place, the less likely it will be for mold to become an issue.

Fortunately, the facts favor our ability to "Take Responsibility, Take Control" of our own environments.  It is neither the job of government nor of charities to do for us what we can do for ourselves.  The exciting news is found in the technologies we now have available to make a positive difference for ourselves, our loved ones, and our posterity. Read on and be encouraged and amazed!
