Did you know that indoor air can be up to 10 times more contaminated than outdoor air? And that we are spending more time indoors? As buildings become better insulated and ‘air-tight’ to improve energy efficiencies, the quality of indoor air is likely to degrade. Building standards include air quality as a key criteria (BREEAM, LEED v4, International Well 4 Building Institute etc.)

Common sources of indoor air problems causing reduced air quality include:

  • Moisture
  • Chemicals (e.g. Carbon monoxide, Formaldehyde)
  • Smoking
  • Dust
  • Pet dander

The main sources of formaldehye are particleboard such as MDF, textiles (including curtains, carpets, leather), building materials, pre-glued wallpaper, veneer furniture, laminate flooring.

Newer buildings are better insulated and ‘air tight’, so less air is moving freely in and out of the building. Less air movement can therefore cause a build up of formaldehyde to stay in the air for longer.

Johnstone's air filtering technology removes 70% of harmful formaldehyde molecules from the air and netralises them from day 1 of application supporting healthier environments for people with respiratory problems and ill health.

Air Pure is proven to improve indoor air quality with immediate effect and maintain it over time.
