Air Quality & Mold Prevention Technology
Our hydroxyl generating technology has been shown in numerous studies to reduce many microbial contaminates from hard and soft surfaces throughout a structure. In addition, it attacks and virtually eliminates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).
HEPA Filtration: Very effective at removing airborne particulates that circulate through the HVAC system. Has no effect on VOCs, odors, or ozone. Provides limited bioaerosol reduction outside of the HVAC system and no surface disinfection effect.
UV Lights: No particulate, VOC, or odor reduction. UV lights produce ozone therefore, indoor air quality must be monitored if in use. UV lights do have some beneficial effect on bioaerosols, however, surface disinfection is only on immediate hard surfaces exposed to UV radiation. UV radiation is harmful to many surfaces including plastic electrical wire insulation.
Ion Generator Systems: effective at reducing airborne particulates. Charged ions have a limited effect on VOC and odor reduction. Ion generators produce ozone, therefore use is restricted. Generators can reduce bioaerosols however, system must be cleaned often to be effective. Limited surface disinfection has been observed. This is from the production of ozone.
Ozone Generators: No particulate reduction. Ozone is very effective against VOCs, Odors, Bioaerosols, and surface microbes. Because Ozone can be harmful and even lethal, it should only be used in unoccupied areas by professional remediation & disinfection services.
TiO2 Systems: Charged ions reduce the level of airborne particulates. Hydroxyl radicals are effective against VOCs and odors within the HVAC system. 2 TiO systems do reduce bioaerosols within the immediate treatment area. Laboratory research has shown significant reduction of surface contaminates within confined treatment zones.
NSAC Systems: Charged ions reduce the level of airborne particulates. Hydroxyl radicals are effective against VOCs and odors within the HVAC system. NSAC systems produce significant levels of hydroxides and peroxides. This is very effective at reducing bio aerosols and surface contamination in a wide footprint. Limited Ozone reduction has also been observed in the laboratory.

Facts About Mold
This can have serious effects on the air quality and health of your home environment. If you even suspect you may have mold, do not hesitate to call us for an inspection! The following facts are important to consider:
Mold is a diverse form of fungus with thousands of known species following many different life cycles. Not all molds are the same, nor are all molds damaging. Many molds are used in the production of various foods, beverages, antibiotics and pharmaceuticals.
Some molds can cause disease through allergic sensitivity, the ingestion of mycotoxins, or the growth of pathogenic molds within the body. These have very serious effects on the human body.
Mold spores are microscopic, present virtually everywhere, and can enter your house through almost any means imaginable. They are a very real part of the air that we breathe.
Black mold, or Stachybotrys charatum, is highly toxic. If you suspect you have this in your house, avoid the infested area and call Biotek Environmental immediately for mold inspection. Mold spores thrive on moisture and can grow quickly when exposed to water. Some of these molds, like black mold, can produce harmful toxins to humans and pets.
• The areas that are suspected of harbouring mold must be fully dried and all water issues addressed before remediation begins, otherwise mold may return.
• Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent as high humidity can aid mold growth.
• Mold often produces a strong, musty odor which can be used to identify possibly infested areas.
• Some molds cause the breakdown of natural materials. This can take the form of property damage or food spoilage.
