How long does it take to treat a standard hospital room?

Less than fifty (50) minutes.

A standard 3,000 cubic foot hospital room can be completely disinfected and repopulated in less than 45 minutes. This includes the time for setup and breakdown of the system, which takes a total of 10 minutes. Our high level disinfection process consists of 4 stages:

  • Deploy – in the deploy stage the AP-4 ™ fills all areas of the room with the sub-micron aerosolized PAA agent.
  • Dwell – the PAA solution is suspended in the air as a sub-micron sized aerosol, bombarding and destroying the pathogens through oxidation.
  • Dehumidification – will remove the PAA aerosol from the room through our Air Reprocessor system housed in the AP-4 ™.
  • Deodorization – the Air Reprocessor scrubs the air with an Activated Charcoal and HEPA filtration system to remove any remaining odor.
