‘Contagion’ may soon be spreading more than the joy of entertainment at the box office. The premise of the movie seems to have brought reality a little too close to home for the actors and staff, including director Steven Soderbergh, screenwriter Scott Burns, and actor Matt Damon.
“The real-life education began with Burns’ intensive research for the script, which involved working with world health experts,” stated USA Today in their article titled ‘Contagion’ created a crew of germaphobes. “Actress Marion Cotillard was the most affected with her germ education. She concedes that she has always been careful pathogen-wise, bringing her own germ-killing spray to hotel rooms. But after long conversations with Soderbergh, she stepped up her game. Now Cotillard cleans every doorknob in the hotel room and the TV remote control.” The article then goes on to say “Her germ mind-set only got worse when she watched Contagion with studio executives,” a statement that seems to underscore the potential effect the movie may have on actual audiences.
Hollywood’s latest fright aside, being concerned about the issue of airborne and surface contaminants is nothing new at Vollara. For years, we have been involved in researching and developing air and surface environmental technologies designed to help combat and control certain common household contaminants. The potential effectiveness of our active technology on surfaces has been tested for us by Dr. James Marsden at Kansas State University, and separately for airborne particulate at the University of Cincinnati.
And while the work we’re doing at Vollara may not have the dramatic flare of a box office hit or the drama of trying to cure a worldwide contagion, we feel it’s very important for average people to have a healthy living space, without unnecessary chemicals or being afraid of the doorknob.
So if you own an active air purifier from Vollara, enjoy ‘Contagion’ knowing you have the power of active, Certified Space technology working for you while you’re out, and after you get back. If you don’t own one, and you would like more information about our technology, contact your Independent Vollara Business Owner, call us at 800.989.2299, or drop by our Facebook.
