Bacteria and fungal spores in the air can cause health problems

 Nature makes it possible - with the ZirbenLüfter® you reduce up to 65%

Bacteria and fungal spores * can be found in nature and in all rooms, they are mostly harmless to healthy people. However, if the proportion of bacteria and fungal spores due to poorly ventilated rooms, too high humidity, tobacco smoke, etc. too high, it can cause health problems - such as respiratory diseases, allergies occurring, asthma and more. - come. Often, indoor bacteria find ideal living conditions. At temperatures around 20 ° C you have the optimal conditions under which bacteria and fungal spores can multiply rapidly.

If there are many people in the interiors (doctors' offices, offices, meeting rooms, wellness areas ...), there is a risk that a wide variety of bacteria can occur. The proliferation of bacteria and fungal spores is additionally promoted by high humidity (bathroom, cellar) - this can cause various infectious diseases and discomfort. Bacteria often enter the body via the respiratory tract and can cause pneumonia, respiratory problems.

Suitable air cleaners as well as the ZirbenLüfter® kill not only bacteria, but also act simultaneously against viruses. Viruses transmit common colds and the real flu (influenza). The ZirbenLüfter® CLASSIC, CUBE and CUBE mini - air cleaners (air washers), humidifiers and air fresheners in one - manage to reduce bacteria and fungal spores by up to 65%. The funded study at the TU Wien project no .: TU14002 makes it clear and provides the necessary proof. The results can be read.

Significant bacterial germ reduction by the ZirbenLüfer® CLASSIC; CUBE and CUBE mini  in an office without controlled ventilation.

 

Important information on bacteria and fungal spores

In most cases, it is a biotic community of bacteria and fungal spores. Most allergens include the mold spores, which contribute to a large extent to human allergic diseases. Mold spores occur both in nature and indoors. In a healthy human, with an intact immune system, there is no health risk with a normal concentration of mold spores. Unfortunately, it is the case that mold spores are excessive in many rooms.

Humidity, poor air exchange (air movement), poor cleaning of the interior (such as carpets, curtains), incorrect use of humidifiers, etc. are often the cause of excessive mold fungus concentration. Most causes of mold are: - Heat / cold bridges on the outer walls - Too many plants, aquariums, hanging wet laundry indoors - pieces of furniture that are too close to the outer wall (rear ventilation) - Ground and hill water, which enters the rooms through capillary action - mostly in old houses - Water damage due to defective pipes, improperly sealed shower cups and tiles - Damage caused by flooding and extinguishing water.
