Air Purification

In addition, you may want to consider enhancing your homes with some unique air purifying products that have recently been developed. These products routinely restore a home’s environment and help ensure its occupants are healthier and safer.

Pure Genius by Lauzon is hardwood flooring that can improve your homes’ indoor air quality while beautifying the décor. Natural or artificial light activates the titanium dioxide particles in the flooring’s finish. These particles are transformed into a purifying agent that decomposes bacteria, viruses and molds. It reduces potential carcinogens by transforming toxic airborne particles into harmless water and carbon dioxide molecules. What’s more, Pure Genius helps reduce household odors such as cigarette smoke, pet urine and lingering cooking smells.

AirRenew wallboards from CertainTeed help reduce harmful VOCs that circulate indoors. AirRenew uses two technologies to actively improve indoor air quality.

First, AirRenew helps clean the air by capturing VOCs— specifically formaldehyde and other aldehydes—and converting them into inert compounds that safely remain within the board. Additionally, AirRenew features M2Tech technology, which is specially engineered to provide protection against moisture and mold.

Lapitec with Bio-Care is sintered stone that may be installed as exterior cladding on buildings, as well as used for interior walls, floors and countertops. Lapitec’s Bio-Care technology involves applying titanium dioxide to the slabs during their manufacture and results in a process similar to photosynthesis. Oxygen, light and humidity decompose organic compounds that deposit on the surface of Lapitec, making it easy to clean. When used as exterior wall cladding, Lapitec self-cleans during a rain shower. The product resists pollution, is mold resistant, and inherently anti-bacterial, thereby reducing unpleasant odors and providing an environmentally friendly solution.
