Baltimore — March 23, 2016 — AeraMax Professional released a special report revealing the detrimental economic and public health toll that asthma and allergies take on businesses and schools throughout the country.
The report, released at the recent NFMT conference in Baltimore, examines the widespread hazard of poor indoor air quality and how facility managers can create healthier and safer environments for occupants with chronic respiratory conditions by cleaning the air.
“Every day, millions of Americans are less productive because of asthma and allergy problems at a business or a school. It’s time to say enough is enough,” said Jeff Dryfhout, global marketing director, Fellowes Brands, Air Treatment. “Cleaning the air dramatically reduces contaminants that trigger allergies and asthma. Most Americans spend 7 to 9 hours a day in shared spaces and facility managers can help ensure they feel healthy and safe in these areas.”
It’s estimated that symptoms from asthma and allergies account for 40,000 missed days of school and work every day. Absenteeism and lost productivity from asthma alone cause an economic burden of $5.1 billion per year.
AeraMax Professional is the first commercial-grade air purifier certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. It removes up to 99.9 percent of airborne contaminants, including common triggers such as dust mites, mold spores, and pollen.
