CIMR – Continuous Infectious Microbial Reduction
What if you could more effectively sanitize the air space of a building – while it was occupied by staff and patients? Mold Testing Baton Roue can be made easier by using CIMR.
CIMR® Continuous Infectious Microbial Reduction – produces a gaseous hydrogen peroxide – or H2O2. During the creation of the H2O2 gas, a molecule is produced that is both positively and negatively charged – which allows the gas to oxidize (both surface and airborne) particulates – and VOC’s.
Much like a magnet, the gas seeks out the particulate and VOC and proactively destroys many “germs” before they have a chance to be inhaled, or land on a person or a surface where a person could become infected. The technology is self regulating and maintains production at .02ppm – 50 times below standard for IAQ.
The technology is very much like vaporous hydrogen peroxide – except at a much lower concentration. The CIMR technology produces a true gaseous form of the H2O2, which is also like the use of ozone – as it oxidizes and destroys airborne and surface microorganisms – greatly improving your indoor air quality. The down side of both of these processes is that you cannot use them in an occupied building.
With CIMR® you can.
CIMR® technology has been used by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Army, FEMA, National Historical Society, Lamar University (a member of Texas State University), and State Farm Insurance. The technology is applied to rapidly inactivate a broad range of bacteria, yeast, molds, viruses and other spore forming microorganisms. CIMR® Infection Control Technology makes New Infection Control Strategies possible for many market sectors such as: facilities, businesses of all sizes, educational institutions, medical facilities, government, mass transportation, and the hospitality industry.
CIMR® Infection Control Technology has been demonstrated to be effective against every virus, bacteria, mold, and other fungus against which it has been tested against.
Also, independent university studies and field studies and actual jobs have documented and illustrated that it is effective against the H5N8 virus, MRSA (Methycillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus), nonresistant Staphylococcus Aureus, E-Coli, Listeria Monocytogenes, Candida Albicans, Stachybotrus Chartarum (Black Mold), Streptococcus, Pseudomonas, and Bacillus Subtilus, and the Norovirus.
Is CIMR® Infection Control Technology Safe?
Yes. 0.02 ppm (parts per million) of hydrogen peroxide gas is just one fiftieth of the amount that OSHA deems safe for inhalation. The hydrogen peroxide gas concentration is also self-controlling. If the hydrogen peroxide gas would ever start to increase above 0.02ppm, it begins to react with itself until the concentration drops back down to 0.02ppm
How Can Such A Small Amount Be Effective?
Even at 0.02ppm, there are still 500 Trillion hydrogen peroxide gas molecules in a single litre of air at room temperature. With that number, the hydrogen peroxide gas molecules are only 1.25 – 1.50 microns apart. Bacteria are one micron in size so they cannot travel far without colliding into several hydrogen peroxide molecules. Viruses as small as 0.1 microns traveling 15 times their length will still run into hydrogen peroxide gas molecules.
How Is This An Advantage?
Hydrogen peroxide gas molecules do not simply “bump” into microbes on a random basis; they are actually attracted to them. Hydrogen peroxide has both localized positive and negative charged points on each molecule which are attracted to the positive and negative charges on the surface of the microbes and are drawn to them through the air by electrostatic attraction.
Are You Sure CIMR® Infection Control Technology Is Safe For Long Term Use?
Yes. As we mentioned, 0.02ppm of hydrogen peroxide gas is just 1/50th of the amount that OSHA deems safe throughout the day. Air containing 0.02ppm of hydrogen peroxide gas is safer than outside air which contains 0.04ppm to 0.08ppm ozone; a much stronger oxidizer.
What Does Air Treated By CIMR® Infection Control Technology Smell Like?
It is odorless. At 0.02ppm, hydrogen peroxide gas is undetectable by the human nose. CIMR® units do not produce a smell or odor as they operate. They will eliminate smells by disinfecting molds, mildew and other organic microbes that produce smells.
