RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — RGF Environmental Group Inc. provides Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) products designed to help reduce the spread of cold and flu viruses in residential and commercial spaces. RGF launched its “Got Flu?” campaign to help contractors better educate the public about IAQ products and their role in the prevention of deadly flu viruses.  

“It’s not enough to just wipe down surfaces and hope that in doing so, the cold and flu viruses will not spread,” said Tony Julian, vice president of business development at RGF. “Most people overlook the importance of air quality when combating viruses and are unknowingly exposing their family and employees to infection.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu viruses are spread mainly through the air by microscopic droplets of water that can travel as much as 100 feet from the infected person. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or even speaks, these droplets are launched into the air, easily spreading to others nearby who are unaware of the pathogens they are now breathing.

Unfortunately, reactive solutions such as encouraging people to stay home from work and school, wash their hands, and wipe down surfaces with harsh disinfectants are not always the most effective remedies to the seasonal cold and flu virus problem. The prime time for infections to spread is the day before any symptoms even begin to present themselves — meaning a proactive offense is the best defense.

Since quarantining employees and kids is impractical, a professionally installed in-duct IAQ system is one of the best ways to help prevent the spread of these viruses throughout the home and workplace.

RGF’s solution, the REME HALO® air purification system works continuously within the conditioned space, both in the air and on surfaces to destroy cold and flu viruses before they have the chance to spread. The REME HALO’s breakthrough technology is proactive, sending Ionized-Hydro-Peroxides™ into the conditioned space to reduce the pollutants at the source, in the air and on surfaces. The REME HALO is designed to help neutralize odors, air pollutants, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) while also reducing the presence of mold, bacteria, and viruses. Particulates in the air including smoke, dander, and dust are reduced through its dual output ion generators which help drop these particulates out of the air through ionic polarization. In addition to this in-duct, whole home solution, RGF provides alternative IAQ solutions in both portable and installed models to help prevent the spread of bacteria and microbes and reduce pollutants in the air.
