By creating negative pressure, air scrubbers capture the contaminated air and produces clean non-contaminated air by passing through a HEPA filter. By using a negative pressure environment this will help to contain the mold, dust, particles and odors created in the workspace contained by a barrier.
- Air always flows from areas of higher pressure to areas of lower pressure.
- Creating and maintaining negative pressure creates inward airflow direction through any leaks or openings in the containment barrier.
- Prevent airborne contaminants from escaping into and contaminating other parts of the work area.
- Can be used during mold or asbestos remediation.
The process of utilizing a negative air machine can be the differences between a successful and non successful mold remediation job. Negative air machines, themselves, must be cleaned by personnel outside the work zone and shortly after heavy debris removal.
