National Air Duct Cleaners Association, Global Biorisk Advisory Council Publish Scientific Paper on Air Quality in Non-Healthcare Settings

NADCA, the HVAC Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Association, announced the publication of “Biological Air Quality Considerations for Non-Healthcare, as Built Environments.” It is a scientific paper developed in partnership with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council.

The paper, funded by the GBAC, addresses several strategies for improving indoor air quality in facilities and built environments such as schools, restaurants, convention centers and gyms.

This paper is designed to provide the measures a facility should take into consideration to control the spread of infectious agents within their facilities, with a particular concern for those spread through airborne routes. Viruses or other infectious agents transmitted through tiny droplets and aerosols are considered to be airborne diseases. SARS-CoV-2, influenza, chicken pox and measles are all examples of airborne diseases.

NADCA president & chairman of the board, Mark Zarzeczny, ASCS, CVI and NADCA’s scientific advisory board chair; Dr. Mark Hernandez, Ph.D., P.E., along with a team of scientific and industry peers; contributed to the multi-authored paper.

The peer-reviewed paper is available for download at https://infectioncontrol.tips/2022/02/10/biological-air-quality-considerations.
