About Ventilation at MAS Clinics

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The COVID19 virus has always been known as a respiratory illness, primarily. The more information that is learned, the more important ventilation appears to play a key factor to keep the likelihood of transmission low - especially when indoors. This and the clear effectiveness of wearing a mask when outside of one’s home or car.

With this in mind, we’d like to highlight ongoing efforts made for premium air quality in the clinics we’ve had in place along with a couple of key recent additions.

The treatment room in Nashua was formerly an industrial clean room. Positioned in the ceiling are 13 individually powered HEPA-filtered air purifiers. We make use of 5 of them on any given day. Along with the 4 HEPA air purifiers on the ground, we are confident to be working within what one city health worker once called, “the cleanest room in Nashua”.

In Manchester, we have employed 7 large professional-grade HEPA-filtered air purifiers since we worked in the Millyard. Used both for ambient noise in order to keep conversations private and for air purifying, we rely on these units and maintain them regularly.

In addition, we’ve recently made an investment in an ionization generator for the HVAC ductwork. The upshot is, this technology cleans the air of viruses, bacteria, allergens and dust that moves through the ductwork of the heating/cooling system. This is the same technology used in hospitals throughout the country.

Speaking of new technology, we’ve also begun to use a new disinfectant throughout the clinics made by Force of Nature, utilizing water, salt, vinegar and electricity (!).

Here’s why: It’s highly effective at killing bacteria and viruses like SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, and it doesn’t offer a strong odor. It’s also perfectly safe for humans (and animals). So far, we are very satisfied with the choice.

This time of year leaves us daily opportunities to keep the doors of the clinics open, allowing fresh air to move through. But the cold weather is never too far away, as we all know. In anticipation of this, we will always keep on top of additional steps available to maintain exceptional air quality for all of us who work, rest and recover at MAS.
