Lou-Cam Plus also thinks about your HEALTH!
At Lou-Cam Plus, we know that the increase in the levels of fine particles in the air, also known as PM10, is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, impaired lung function, lung cancer and decreased life spans. That is why our trucks have sophisticated equipment to meet current needs.
Traditional methods of cleaning of paved roads do not pay enough attention to the protection of health and the environment. The large amount of fugitive dust from traditional mechanical sweeping operations has adverse environmental effects, especially on the air we breathe.
That is why Lou-Cam Plus can offer an environmentally responsible approach to cleaning paved roads and removing winter abrasive residues. With a sought after methodology and cutting edge equipment, we are able to capture and effectively contain PM10 fine particles, an absolute necessity in order to minimize its negative impact on our health and the environment.
What is PM?
Particulate matter (PM) suspended in the air is a pollutant that contributes to the reduction of air quality. The “PM10” designation refers to the particles of materials which have a diameter of 10 microns or less. In comparison, a human hair has a diameter of about 50 to 100 microns. While larger diameter particles settle faster on the ground, PM10, due to their low weight and size, can remain suspended and airborne for weeks.
Exposure to PM10 concentrations can cause a host of health problems in the population. Children, the elderly and people with respiratory and allergic problems are particularly sensitive. Other pollutants already in the air can combine with suspended PM, thus creating additional health risks both in urban and rural areas.
