Portable air scrubbers do just what their name implies: they ‘scrub’ the air. Air scrubbers clean the air by removing small dirt particles and other unwanted odors using high end filters. This allows portable air scrubbers to filter out 99.97% of the small particles in the air. Portable air scrubber rentals are designed to employ up to four filter stages to remove potentially hazardous airborne pathogens. Air Scrubber units can help provide relief for asthma, allergies, sinus problems, chemical irritations, mold spores, and other pathogens. Air scrubbers are ideal for removing potentially hazardous air borne particles from construction sites, medical facilities, and water or fire damaged buildings. They can also be used in buildings with a high level of mold and/or odors.


Spot Coolers also do what their name implies: they cool the air in a specific area. Spot cooler rentals are great for the temporary cooling of many facilities including stores, offices, schools, medical centers, and other meeting areas. Spot cooler rentals have a programmable thermostat that can be adjusted to meet your facility’s needs as well as adjustable air vents that allow air flow to be directed to prime areas. Spot coolers have a regular a/c filter that can filter and clean the indoor air; however, the filter does not clean the air to the extent of an air scrubber.

So when would you want to consider renting an air scrubber vs. a spot cooler? If your main concern is keeping the air in your environment filtered and clean, especially due to a contamination of mold, spores, or fumes, you most likely would want to look into air scrubber rentals. On the other hand, if you are looking to provide cooler air conditioning to your employees or customers with normal air filtration, then spot cooler rentals may be right for you.

The rental of both air scrubbers and spot coolers is an easy process. If you have any questions or concerns, the associates at Portable Air are more than happy to assist you. For more information, visit or call 800-341-4297.
