Virus Contamination Control

Virus Contamination Control

Millions of viruses are suspended in the air or attached to surfaces and can easily be transmitted with a simple contact. Fluids from the respiratory system can be dispersed into the air as microscopic droplets when someone coughs or sneezes. Research indicates these droplets can travel across a room after a cough or sneeze and remain suspended in the air for hours. Under the right environmental conditions, viruses can survive on a surface for days.

Camfil's team is dedicated and passionate about providing clean indoor air through advanced air filtration solutions to help fight the risk of harmful pathogens such as COVID-19 in the indoor environment. Here you will find articles, tips, guides, and information related to virus contamination and solution to control this contamination in the indoor air.
