ThermaPure® is a disruptive technology that is revolutionizing how we treat insects, dust mites, mold, bacteria, viruses and other indoor air quality concerns and how we dry structures. Through the controlled application of sauna like temperatures to a structure or portion of a structure and with a strong emphasis on simultaneous filtration to reduce the potential for spreading contaminants, ThermaPure® pasteurizes buildings. ThermaPure® has been proven in tens of thousands of applications to be an effective treatment for wood destroying organisms, bed bugs, mold, bacteria and viruses without the use of toxic chemicals. Anecdotal evidence has shown that ThermaPure® reduces allergic reactions caused by cockroaches, dust mites, and many common mold species.
Over the past ten years, ThermaPure® has acquired the rights to the insect patents, been granted patents for the remediation of mold, bacteria, viruses and VOCs in structures, and has another six patents pending that strengthen the control of the technology for a broad range of indoor air quality applications. Additionally, the intellectual property includes over 35 trademarks and foreign patents. Additional companies in the ThermaPure family include Precision Environmental, Inc., an environmental remediation services and operating company; E-Therm, Inc., a licensing company; and TPE Associates, LLC., a pest services licensing company.
Our companies are committed to using our IP to reduce humanity’s exposure to lethal chemicals and carcinogenic substances, to improve the quality of life for asthma sufferers, and to provide living and working conditions that have less exposure to dangerous mold, bacteria, viruses and chemicals. In her final sentence of Silent Spring, the historic work that launched environmental awareness, concern and response, Rachel Carson wrote:
It is our alarming misfortune that so primitive a science has armed itself with the most modern and terrible weapons, and that in turning them against the insects it has also turned them against the earth.”
She was speaking about chemicals used as insecticides, biocides, poisons to manage unwanted bugs. Despite her warning, in the last 30 years the usage of pesticides has increased 50%. In a recent EPA estimate there were over 4.5 billion pounds of total pesticides used each year in the United States. Of this amount, pesticides classified by the EPA as carcinogenic totaled 380 million pounds with significant amounts of others also causing health problems.
The effect of this amount of chemical is extremely harmful to the health of humans and the environment. In testimony before the U.S. Senate, Dr. Philip Landrigan of the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine stated:
Pesticides have been shown to cause injury to human health, as well as damage the environment. The health effects include acute and persistent injury to the nervous system, lung damage, injury to the reproductive organs, dysfunction of the immune and endocrine systems, birth defects, and cancer.”
