The other day I went to purchase some doughnuts at a new Bakery that opened up in an old strip mall near our house. The other tenants in the building include a bar, fix it shop and automotive repair shop at the end.

Older buildings, especially small strip mall building often had very little barrier between business compartment and odors from one business could and often did migrate into the adjacent store or even businesses two stores away.

This Bakery had that problem. Walking in to the doughnut shop one would think the aroma would be of baked goods. Not this one. It had the odor of un-burned hydrocarbons, oil and something else I could not identify. Fortunately the baked goods did not share that odor but it did make it somewhat unappetizing when I purchased the baked goods.

Pure Air Systems has been making Hepa and Carbon based, fan powered, commercial grade air filtration systems since 1985. These units can move as little as 50 CFM or as much as 2,000 CFM and can operate either attached to an existing HVAC unit or as a stand-alone system.

A 2000 CFM unit could be placed in the odor infected business and both filter out the odors and particulate as well as pressurize the environment to minimize the infiltration of the airborne contaminants. This has been done hundreds of times with the 2000HS units with exceptional results.

The problems facing the doughnut shop are duplicated in strip malls across the U.S. It is especially challenging when your store is next to a Nail Salon or Hair Salon. Odors from the chemicals used in these facilities can actually destroy your business. And trying to get the management to allow you to move to another location may not be possible or not allowed in your contract.
