ALLIANCE NEWS – NEWSLETTER 17

Written by Alliance Environmental

With the blink of an eye, the year has almost passed us by, as we approach the last quarter of 2021 and October brings with it quite an interesting and eventful month. With celebrations such as Oktoberfest and Halloween, we also throw the spotlight on a significant cause of Breast Cancer Awareness. October is also officially recognized as National Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month, which highlights the importance of indoor air quality and how it impacts us all.

In keeping with the importance of breathing clean air, we start this issue by acknowledging the need for a safe environment for students and teachers especially since schools have reopened for in-person learning. The Mintie Viruskiller air purification products provide the perfect solution to keep the indoor air quality in schools contaminant-free amidst the health dangers that Covid-19 and wildfire smoke present.

Just over a week ago, we marked National Mesothelioma Awareness Day. Back in 2010, September 26th was earmarked by the US Congress as a special day to raise the American public’s awareness about mesothelioma and to remind us all how important it is to protect the public and our workers from asbestos exposure. We will focus on why it makes sense to hire a professional asbestos removal company. Alliance Environmental has set the industry benchmark in the service of asbestos abatement and removal over the last quarter of a century and continues to do so.

As we have seen from the devastating fires in parts of Northern California, wildfires have continued to wreak havoc in our communities. The air quality index has reflected this, with conditions not just in the Northern part of the state but central and Southern California being affected. The wildfire smoke has traveled far and wide and dissipated into the atmosphere but not after permeating the air with poor air quality. Airtek Indoor Air Solutions is a company all too familiar with completing HVAC restoration after the wildfire smoke has taken its course and settled. The company is your go-to contractor for providing HVAC and duct cleaning services.

Unfortunately, we have seen the impact of Covid-19 and how this has gravely put a strain on our healthcare facilities. Our next topic highlights the concern of infection control in hospital facilities. Coast IAQ and Life Safety Services, a leader in the healthcare industry sector, offers the necessary preventative measures for combating infection control. Our team works throughout the healthcare facility, including the operating rooms, providing services and support to healthcare professionals that have severely strained resources in terms of ICU room capacities. Their deployment of negative air pressure rooms and ICRA barriers helps provide reassurance to not just these healthcare facilities but to patients alike.

We conclude this newsletter with a crucial issue and one that is often neglected: the danger of hazardous lead paint. Traditionally the end of October is National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week. We turn our attention to how to safely and correctly abate lead paint. Lead paint is an environmental concern and presents a danger to all those exposed to it, including children at home or employees in the workplace.

Enjoy the read and have an outstanding and spooktacular October!

Until our next issue, take care and stay safe!
