A Step-By-Step Guide To Disinfecting The Air In Your Home


As the Covid-19 crisis evolves, it’s safe to say that we will likely be continuing to spend a lot of time at home – so it’s more important than ever to disinfect your indoor spaces to keep your home in tip-top hygiene levels.
While the standard disinfectants are probably enough to eliminate any contaminants that land on surfaces, they don’t exactly work the same way for the air around you. Just like a surface, the air you breathe can appear clean but still contain alarming levels of germs. In fact, it may contain invisible, potentially virus-laden droplets that can be spread via airborne transmission, causing hazardous effects to your health without any telltale signs. In order to ensure that your indoor air is safe and free of harmful bacteria, the solution is air disinfection (also known as aerial disinfection) to curb airborne germs.

Not to be confused with air purifying (which refers to the process of removing airborne particles like dust, smoke and pollen), air disinfection focuses on eliminating
bacteria, viruses, fungus and spores from the air. Besides airborne pathogens, it also works just as effectively on surfaces to ensure that your space is safely disinfected.
Learning how to properly disinfect your air can provide you with optimal long-term health benefits, allowing you and your loved ones to live and breathe safely at home. Here’s a handy guide to help you get into the aerial disinfection routine – one step at a time.

#1 Select an appropriate product that fits your needs

When it comes to selecting the ideal solution that works best for you, it’s important to select a safe and high-quality product that you can be assured of its benefits.
For BioCair, we specialise in state-of-the-art disinfecting solutions for your every need. Our BioCair Dry-Mist Disinfection Machine utilises an ion-energising technology known as BC-65 to effectively target all types of airborne and surface pathogens. When used with the Air Purifying Solution (APS), the machine will convert the solution into a form of dry mist that’s lightweight enough to stay suspended in the air. When the mist is dispersed throughout the room, the Air Purifying Solution is able to penetrate deep into the cell wall of pathogens to eliminate it completely.
What’s more, it’s also formulated to be non-toxic, irritant-free and safe for everyday use, even around children. So if you’re worried about exposing your child to harmful chemicals, you can have peace of mind knowing that your little ones will be in safe hands.

#2 Check that it has been tested and proven for efficacy

Always choose products that have been tested and proven for efficacy. Any product should be properly validated through independent testing by an accredited, third-party laboratory to verify the effectiveness, safety and reliability of a product. Does it effectively kill the bacteria? Does it contain toxic chemicals? What are the testings involved? Does the brand have a proven track record? These are some of the questions you can ask to help determine whether the product delivers on its promises, or if it’s making false claims.
To back up our claims, all BioCair products have passed necessary safety tests in reputable laboratories, including TUV SUD and SGS International. Through stringent testing, we ensure that our disinfectants are proven to be fast and highly effective in eliminating 99.999% of bacteria, germs, fungus and spores within 60 seconds of contact. It’s also tested to be safe for use, and does not cause any toxicity when inhaled or accidentally ingested. No eye or skin irritation was observed either.

#3 Ensure that it’s designed for ease of usage

Machines don’t have to be complicated. A good disinfection product should be designed to be user-friendly and fuss-free to operate, so anyone would feel comfortable using it with ease.
Fortunately, BioCair’s disinfection machines are pretty straightforward to use. Just power up the machine, and let it do the hard work!
If you’re using the Ultimate II Dry-Mist Disinfection Machine or Pro II Dry-Mist Disinfection Machine, simply fill it up with the Air Purifying Solution along with distilled water at a 1:1 ratio. We recommend turning on the machine for an hour of disinfection per day in an enclosed room. The dry-mist generated will be dispersed throughout the area to kill airborne pathogens, before settling on nearby surfaces to get rid of any lingering germs in one sitting. It’s that easy!

#4 Incorporate it into your everyday routine

Just like any cleaning routine, aerial disinfection should be performed regularly in order to achieve optimal results.
For an hour every day, use the machine in areas of the home where your family tends to spend the most time. Disinfect communal areas like the living room and dining before and after using it, e.g. before gathering on the couch for a Netflix show, or after a hearty meal with the family. It’s also recommended to disinfect your bedroom before going to sleep to rid the air of any nasty germs as you will be spending an extended amount of time in the room during slumber.
With regular aerial disinfection, you can maintain a safe and germ-free environment at all times.
