Evidence rooms also called property rooms often contain items that include dangerous and toxic chemicals, bacteria, viruses and mold spores! These hazardous contaminants often cause chronic health problems for the people that work in these evidence rooms and in the secure areas around them that are not properly protected with high quality HEPA air cleaners or better yet HEPA air purifiers that will also kill biological contaminants!
Evidence rooms are often located in nasty musty basement dungeons and the people that control the money often do not realize how important it is to allocate proper funds to supply adequate and proper ventilation, air filtration and air purification systems that include quality HEPA air purifiers to better protect both the evidence being stored in these rooms and the people working in these areas! Its is very important that evidence rooms do not share their ventilation or air conditioning system with other areas of the police or sheriffs department. This is so contaminated evidence does not spread into other areas or zones of the building if there is an accident or spill.
Proper ventilation is always a problem because with ventilation, out goes the costly heat in the winter and the air-conditioning in the summer. It is very important to have proper HEPA air filtration to remove the airborne particulates floating in the indoor air and pounds of activated carbon filtration mixed with zeolite to absorb and control rancid odors and any possible dangerous chemical out-gassing coming from drugs and other chemical sources. All of these features need to be included in high quality air purification unit(s) that includes a high intensity ultraviolet (UV) light system to kill and control biological contaminants coming from bacteria, viruses and mold spores coming from syringes, marijuana and other drugs, body fluids, blood and DNA samples. Aspergillus is a common toxic mold that often grows on marijuana, soil samples and other plant life that is often kept damp in plastic evidence storage bags.
We have found that only a handful of companies sell HEPA air purifiers for police evidence rooms and property storage rooms. Since this is a niche the prices of these HEPA air purifiers are extremely high! These high prices are not necessary and there are better air purifiers available for evidence rooms at a much lower and affordable cost!
