Airfree is probably the only air cleaner independently tested and proven efficient in eliminating microorganisms. No maintenance required, costly replacement parts, or harmful ozone emissions.
Airfree can dramatically improve indoor air quality and living conditions for you and your pets.
Airfree is used in these applications today
Bacteria and Viruses
Airfree destroys 99.99% of bacteria and viruses. Any living microorganism regardless of how small, hazardous or chemical resistant is fully and safely destroyed.
Airborne bacteria and viruses are a common source of respiratory infection and a particular threat to infants, the elderly and those with compromised immune or cardiovascular systems, including people with allergies, asthma, AIDS and heart disease. Some serious infectious diseases are spread through airborne bacteria or viruses, including whooping cough, meningitis, pneumonia, SARS and anthrax.
How large are the bacteria and viruses that threaten human health? According to the Pennsylvania State University Department of Aerobiological Engineering airborne pathogens database, health-threatening bacteria and viruses range in size from .018 micron to as large as 1.325 microns. Airfree destroys any airborne microorganism regardless of its size. Furthermore, regular air filters concept is to trap not to destroy them. Its maximum filtration capacity is 0.03 microns.
When it comes to filtration, bacteria and viruses have not been proven to behave in exactly the same way as non-living particles. Some pathogens can move on their own, and some have slimy coatings that may affect a filter's ability to capture them. Furthermore, regular home air cleaners may not always be used under ideal conditions (24 hours per day, in a sealed room appropriate to the unit's tested air volume capacity). All of these variables may affect any system's ability to filter bacteria and viruses.
Airfree is always on protecting your family and pets.
Allergies, Asthma and other breathing allergies
We spend an average of 90% of our lives indoors.
Airborne allergens such as pollen, mold spores, cat or dog dander, ozone, house dust mite skeleton and excrements trigger allergic reactions to sensitized individuals.
Airfree is the only system available that in fact destroys such particles. No living microorganism or protein can resist temperatures above 400ºF (250ºC)
Controlling airborne allergens at work and at home makes a significant contribution towards reducing overall exposure to airborne allergens. This is why every successful allergen avoidance program should include an Airfree device as part of an overall allergen avoidance strategy.

Mold and mold spores are always present in the air. Those airborne
microscopic microorganisms will attach themselves to walls, furniture
and other surfaces in any room. When the temperature and moisture
level in the environment are suitable for germination, the fungus
spores burst and grow into new mold or mildew colonies.
Airfree sterilization ceramic core
destroys 99.99% of mold and spores. After 2-3 weeks of continuos usage,
mold in the room is reduced in 80% and in some cases in 90%. (please

80% reduction in room airborne spores
will translate into a safe environment where virtually no mold will
develop for as long as Airfree is protecting the room.
Along with pollens from trees, grasses, and weeds, molds are an
important cause of seasonal allergic rhinitis. People allergic to
molds may have symptoms from spring to late fall. The mold season
often peaks from July to late summer. Unlike pollens, molds may
persist after the first killing frost. Some can grow at subfreezing
temperatures, but most become dormant. Snow cover lowers the outdoor
mold count dramatically but does not kill molds. After the spring thaw,
molds thrive on the vegetation that has been killed by the winter cold.
In the warmest areas of the United
States, however, molds thrive all year and can cause year-round (perennial)
allergic problems. In addition, molds growing indoors can cause
perennial allergic rhinitis even in the coldest climates.
There are thousands of types of molds
and yeast, the two groups of plants in the fungus family. Yeasts are
single cells that divide to form clusters. Molds consist of many cells
that grow as branching threads called hyphae. Although both groups can
probably cause allergic reactions, only a small number of molds are
widely recognized offenders.
The seeds or reproductive particles of
fungi are called spores. They differ in size, shape, and color among
species. Each spore that germinates can give rise to new mold growth,
which in turn can produce millions of spores.
What is mold allergy?
When inhaled, microscopic fungal spores
or, sometimes, fragments of fungi may cause allergic rhinitis. Because
they are so small, mold spores may evade the protective mechanisms of
the nose and upper respiratory tract to reach the lungs.
In a small number of people, symptoms
of mold allergy may be brought on or worsened by eating certain foods,
such as cheeses, processed with fungi. Occasionally, mushrooms, dried
fruits, and foods containing yeast, soy sauce, or vinegar will produce
allergic symptoms. There is no known relationship, however, between a
respiratory allergy to the mold Penicillium and an allergy to the drug
penicillin, made from the mold.
Where do molds grow?
Molds can be found wherever there is
moisture, oxygen, and a source of the few other chemicals they need.
In the fall they grow on rotting logs and fallen leaves, especially in
moist, shady areas. In gardens, they can be found in compost piles and
on certain grasses and weeds. Some molds attach to grains such as
wheat, oats, barley, and corn, making farms, grain bins, and silos
likely places to find mold.
Hot spots of mold growth in the home
include damp basements and closets, bathrooms (especially shower
stalls), places where fresh food is stored, refrigerator drip trays,
house plants, air conditioners, humidifiers, garbage pails, mattresses,
upholstered furniture, and old foam rubber pillows.
Bakeries, breweries, barns, dairies,
and greenhouses are favorite places for molds to grow. Loggers, mill
workers, carpenters, furniture repairers, and upholsterers often work
in moldy environments.
Which molds are allergenic?
Like pollens, mold spores are important
airborne allergens only if they are abundant, easily carried by air
currents, and allergenic in their chemical makeup. Found almost
everywhere, mold spores in some areas are so numerous they often
outnumber the pollens in the air. Fortunately, however, only a few
dozen different types are significant allergens.
In general, Alternaria and Cladosporium (Hormodendrum) are the molds most
commonly found both indoors and outdoors throughout the United States.
Aspergillus, Penicillium, Helminthosporium, Epicoccum, Fusarium, Mucor,
Rhizopus, and Aureobasidium (Pullularia) are also common.
Are mold counts helpful?
Similar to pollen counts, mold counts
may suggest the types and relative quantities of fungi present at a
certain time and place. For several reasons, however, these counts
probably cannot be used as a constant guide for daily activities. One
reason is that the number and types of spores actually present in the
mold count may have changed considerably in 24 hours because weather
and spore dispersal are directly related. Many of the common
allergenic molds are of the dry spore type--they release their spores
during dry, windy weather. Other fungi need high humidity, fog, or dew
to release their spores. Although rain washes many larger spores out
of the air, it also causes some smaller spores to be shot into the air.
In addition to the effect of day-to-day
weather changes on mold counts, spore populations may also differ
between day and night. Day favors dispersal by dry spore types and
night favors wet spore types.
Are there other mold-related
Fungi or microorganisms related to them
may cause other health problems similar to allergic diseases. Some
kinds of Aspergillus may cause several different illnesses, including
both infections and allergy. These fungi may lodge in the airways or a
distant part of the lung and grow until they form a compact sphere
known as a "fungus ball." In people with lung damage or serious
underlying illnesses, Aspergillus may grasp the opportunity to invade
the lungs or the whole body.
In some individuals, exposure to these
fungi also can lead to asthma or to a lung disease resembling severe
inflammatory asthma called allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis.
This latter condition, which occurs only in a minority of people with
asthma, is characterized by wheezing, low-grade fever, and coughing up
of brown-flecked masses or mucus plugs. Skin testing, blood tests,
X-rays, and examination of the sputum for fungi can help establish the
diagnosis. Corticosteroid drugs are usually effective in treating this
reaction; immunotherapy (allergy shots) is not helpful.
