North Texas Clean Air Association was established to ensure workplace and educational facilities in the United States maintain healthy air quality for workers, children and consumers. We partner with multiple institutions to provide air disinfecting & decontamination services for the following:

NEUTRALIZING INFECTED AIR
In the United States millions of employees go to work everyday and breathe infected air. A prolonged inhalation of the infected air has proven to cause various respiratory illnesses, many that do not present themselves until a future time. What is worse is that many are unaware they are breathing infected air.
Harmful airborn contaminates, bacteria, viruses and other aggressive elements saturate enclosed airspaces and attach to unknowing humans. These micro elements are derived from a host of sources, but are present in the air of every enclosure that is not regularly disinfected.These elements are cause for many illnesses even without prolonged exposure.
DID YOU KNOW?
The average American spends 1850 hours at work annually. An increasing number have been diagnosed with respiratory and other serious illnesses and the cause may be workplace air quality.
Below is a list of Government and other institutional released information regarding indoor air contamination:
Many U.S. employers are currently unaware that airborne contaminates, viruses and bacteria are present in their facilities, presenting a health hazard to consumers and workers.
How It Works
NTCAA provides air disinfecting services for commercial locations in the United States by various affiliations and agreements to provide the most effective services for employers.
1. Schedule a disinfecting by calling 1-903-493-4655. Members can book online.
2. After having the air in your facility disinfected, we are required to present your facility with a clean air certificate so that workers and consumers know the air in the building has recently been disinfected.
3. NTCAA and it's affiliates only utilize premium air disinfectant. Upon completion of a disinfecting it is suggested that a 30 minute period be given to allow settling. A disinfecting can be scheduled before opening of business, during the business hours or after business hours.
Disinfections are suggested at minimum once a month to help ensure proper clean air levels.
Statement: North Texas Clean Air Association can not guarantee that regularly disinfecting the air will prevent all respiratory conditions or other illnesses, however, extensive medical and scientific research has shown regular air disinfecting to produce a healthier breathing situation in previously untreated areas.
The following is information pertaining to common bacteria and infections. For a list of other Government information, click here.
During a sneeze, millions of tiny droplets of water and mucus are expelled at about 200 miles per hour (100 metres per second). The droplets initially are about 10-100 micrometres diameter, but they dry rapidly to droplet nuclei of 1-4 micrometres, containing virus particles or bacteria. This is a major means of transmission of several diseases of humans.
Some important diseases of humans transmitted from person to person by inhaled airborne particles
Chickenpox (Varicella)Whooping cough (Bordetella pertussis)
Flu (Influenza)Meningitis (Neisseria species)
Measles (Rubeola)Diphtheria (Corynebacterium diphtheriae)
German measles (Rubella)Pneumonia (Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Streptococcus species)
Mumps (Mumps)Tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis)
Several other diseases, below, are acquired by inhaling particles from environmental sources, not directly from an infected person.
Psittacosis (Chlamydia psittaci)Dried, powdery droppings from infected birds (parrots, pigeons, etc.)
Legionnaire's disease (Legionella pneumophila)Droplets from air-conditioning systems, water storage tanks, etc., where the bacterium grows.
Acute allergic alveolitis (various fungal and actinomycete spores)Fungal or actinomycete spores from decomposing organic matter (composts, grain stores, hay, etc.)
Aspergillosis (Aspergillus fumigatus, A. flavus,)Fungal spores inhaled from decomposing organic matter
Histoplasmosis (Histoplasma capsulatum)Spores of the fungus, in old, weathered bat or bird droppings
Coccidioidomycosis (Coccidioides immitis)Spores in air-blown dust in desert regions (Central, South and North America) where the fungus grows in the soil
Psittacosis is a serious disease acquired by handling birds or by inhaling dust from bird faeces. It is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia psittaci, an obligate intracellular parasite. After entering the respiratory tract, the cells are transported to the liver and spleen, multiply there and then invade the lungs, causing inflammation, haemorrhage and pneumonia.
Legionnaire's disease is a fairly common form of pneumonia in older or immunocompromised people. It is seldom transmitted directly from person to person. The bacterium is an aquatic rod-shaped species with a temperature optimum of about 36oC, and is a common inhabitant of warm-water systems in buildings. Infection occurs when people inhale aerosol droplets containing the bacteria.
Extrinsic allergic alveolitis is a serious hypersensitive response, usually associated with repeated exposure to airborne spores in the work environment. A classic example is the condition termed farmer's lung, caused by exposure to spores of thermophilic actinomycetes.
Aspergillosis, Histoplasmosis and Coccidioidomycosis are examples of serious fungal infections of humans, initiated by spores deposited in the alveoli. They can be life-threatening diseases of immunocompromised people, when the fungi disseminate from the lungs to major organs of the body. However, in all cases the infection of humans is incidental to the fungus, playing no part in its normal biology. These are fungi that grow naturally as decomposer organisms in soil, bird faeces or other organic substrates.
