‘Clean air was vital for getting our staff back into the office’
Icon Accounting is the leading and fastest growing provider of one-stop-shop accountancy and compliance services for independent professional contractors in Ireland. Their offices are located in Swords, Co. Dublin.
Following the introduction of workplace restrictions and working from home conditions Icon Accounting saw a number of issues arise with training new staff, a safe solution for bringing staff back to the offices become imperative.
Following an onsite evaluation of the Icon Accounting office space, the Mia Air team concluded that in order to achieve optimal air quality and purification at least 4 Mia Air HEPA14 Air filtration systems would need to be installed.
Hear from Ger Kiernan, MD of Icon Accounting:
“We wanted to do as much as we could to make it a clean, stable and safe environment, bringing in desk dividers, we had protocols around mask wearing and antigen tests for staff twice a week. We’ve done everything, the Mia Air HEPA14 air filters were the final piece of the jigsaw.”

Mia Air Air Purifiers Improve employee safety
- Reduce the spread of viruses like influenza, coronavirus, and SARS
- Eliminate VOCs found in common cleaning products
- Improve employee experience by neutralizing odors
- Eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms like MRSA
- Decrease airborne allergens like pollen, mold, and dust
The high efficiency particulate absorbing (HEPA) systems work by trapping and destroying airborne particles and viruses before pumping out clean air through a fan – and can be controlled on smartphone apps.
“We’ll keep them here even when Covid has gone, why wouldn’t you? It eliminates every other cold and virus in the air that people could potentially pick up,” said Mr Kiernan.
Eighteen of Icon Accounting’s 43 staff have returned to their desks in Swords, many for the first time since March 2020.
But the most transformative change is the company’s ability to begin instructing trainee accountants in person again, largely due to four hospital-grade HEPA filters it brought in to coincide with the phased return to workplaces.
The aim is to protect people, using Mia Air’s expertise, experience and research-driven design of air filtration systems for airborne pathogens.
The triple filtration system in our flagship Mia Air air purifiers integrates what is widely recognised as the best HEPA H14 filter available on the market. Its classification ensures a minimum efficiency of over 99.995% for all types of contaminants, including viruses and bacteria.
The use of Mia Air HEPA H14 filters is ideal for improving the air quality of different types of indoor environments. The HEPA filter is EN1822:2019 certified to ensure optimum performance.
