HWP Solutions offers post-flood clean air solution

May 2017: We’ve all heard that we are what we eat. HWP (Health, Wellness and Performance) Solutions believes that should be amended to we are what we eat, drink and breathe. Just think about this. People live without food for 30 or 40 days, yet we can’t go without water for more than a few days and without air for just minutes. What we absorb into our bodies through all processes is key, because clean food, water and air are all vital to our health and well-being.
coverPollution comes into our home from many sources; the kids bring home germs from school, pets track in who knows what; we pick up bacteria and viruses on door handles; mold grows in hidden cracks, in carpet, in closets and anywhere moisture might have been present. Added to that now are the unknown long-term effects of the flood waters that inundated many of our homes in southeast Louisiana last August for several days and left pollutants behind in the mud that coated everything the water touched.
Randy Mehlon, co-owner of HWP Solutions, makes the point that their product is NOT an air filter; it is an air purification system. Their systems do remove odors that most other products cannot – and sometimes simply mask – but the machines also kill bacteria, viruses and mold.
He makes that distinction because while their systems do eliminate smoke, odors, odor-causing bacteria, and other airborne contaminants, they also remove contaminants on surfaces and in the air. In fact, University level studies show Fresh Air Systems from HWP kill germs, bacteria, mold and even many viruses at 99.99999% in as little as 6 hours.
That’s what led to Randy becoming a distributor for Vollara clean air machine products. Wanting to breathe cleaner air in his home, he had bought a couple air filter machines that were not effective. He then had his home’s air ducts cleaned and discovered there was mold in the ducts. The duct cleaning company proposed an expensive plan to treat the mold with UV lights which Mehlon knew would not work because of the nature of mold. He then recalled that his friend Arnold Kairdolf had told him about an air purification machine that kills bacteria, viruses and contaminants. He got the name of the machine from Arnold and bought a system which removed the mold from his home.
“After about three weeks, I realized that I was able to breathe through my nose, something I had not been able to do for many years,” Mehlon said.
Kairdolf, a local real estate agent, first discovered the merits of the machine when he used one to remove the strong cat odors in a house he was trying to sell. Kairdolf and Mehlon, having both experienced firsthand the effectiveness of the air purifier, decided to go into business together as distributors of Vollara products.
According to Kairdolf, the FreshAir Surround by Vollara is a revolutionary air purifier that uses the same science as nature to destroy odors, eliminates smoke and reduces harmful contaminants ordinary cleaning can leave behind. In short, it’s technology based on how nature keeps things safe and clean outdoors, with negatively and positively charged ions combined with NASA-developed technology Vollara calls RCI that work in concert to remove pollutants from the air and safely reducing contaminants on surfaces.
Two of Vollara’s most compelling testimonials are from Major League Baseball and NASA. “MLB uses the machines in almost every one of their clubhouses in the country, initially to protect against staph infections, and then they discovered it also stopped Legionnaires’ Disease,” Kairdolf revealed.
NASA developed the core technology for the international space station to prevent the growth of mold, bacteria and viruses, thereby allowing the inhabitants of the space station to safely grow plants for flights to Mars.
“MLB has access to billions of dollars and could purchase any system they want, but they chose to use Vollara. They obviously would not use a system that doesn’t work,” he added.

“Indoor allergens and irritants have become much more important in recent decades because we’re spending more time indoors. And because modern homes are airtight, these irritants cannot easily escape. We’re all exposed to a greater degree than we were three or four decades ago” – David Lang, head of Allergy/Immunology at the Cleveland Clinic.

In fact, the NASA space foundation inducted the company’s ActivePure technology into the Space Technology Hall of Fame on April 2, 2017. ActivePure is one of only 75 technologies that have been inducted into their hall of fame in the past 20 years
Back in Louisiana, a married couple in Houma had their home flooded by Hurricane Ike. “They had their house gutted, treated and repaired, but in the ensuing months, they couldn’t sleep well and developed rashes and headaches. The wife also began having seizures. Once they got the machine, they both started getting better in three days,” Mehlon related. cover2
Mike Jackson, the founder of the technology, stated “Vollara technology does not heal or treat people. We treat environments where people spend 90% of their time. We get rid of things like mold that can trigger allergic reactions and other ailments.”
Videos of testimonials from other people whose health problems improved after starting to use the Vollara machines can be seen on the HWP Solutions website at www.hwpsolutions.com/air-purification.
“I understand the skepticism people have, especially if they have tried other machines and been disappointed,” Mehlon said. “That’s why we offer to go to peoples’ homes and supply them with a test kit for their home at no charge. The test kit normally cost $39, but as a part of our program here in town, we are providing it for free. Most people are shocked at what they find in the test kit We collect samples from the air in your home with a lab petri dish since mold spores are airborne, and leave the dish for you to monitor for mold growth. Seeing is believing.”
cover3Vollara manufactures three different air purification machines to meet everyone’s needs:
Fresh air for your entire home: Treats up to 3000 square feet with just the press of a button. FreshAir Surround* provides coverage for the entire home, yet fits on top of a bookshelf. Complete with remote control, the FreshAir Surround places the power of active air purification at your fingertips. FreshAir sends out an “army” of safe and natural ions and pollution-controlling, odor-reducing, oxygen-rich ‘scrubbers’ for a fresher, safer indoor environment.

“Mountain fresh” air: With many of the same features as the FreshAir Surround, the FreshAir Everest utilizes ActivePure technology exclusively to offer an ozone-free option while providing the benefits of Vollara’s Certified Space Technology. With coverage of up to 3000 square feet, your living areas are protected continuously with the power of ActivePure to treat smoke, odors, odor-causing bacteria, and contaminants on surfaces.
The FreshAir Cube: It takes the cleansing power of sunlight and thunderstorms and puts them where you need it most. With up to 1500 square feet of coverage, FreshAir Cube is the compact way to deliver the benefits of Active Pure to the pollution source.
Vollara also produces other products, including a weight loss supplement and products and water purification products.
Mike Jackson stated “Our technology is based on peer reviewed published studies that are the gold standard. After 911, the Pentagon installed Fresh Air to allow people to breathe clean air and open up the offices to defend our country. They sent us three medals as a thank you. You can’t go visit the Liberty Bell without going through a security room outfitted with our systems. You can’t lose with Vollara. We back up our technology with an unconditional satisfaction guarantee. Give Randy and Arnold a call – you’ll be glad you did.”

Meet the owners of HWP Solutions
Arnold Kairdolf and Randy Mehlon first met at a Christian retreat while attending Istrouma Baptist Church in Baton Rouge in 2005. They shared a room together and that was the start of a great friendship. Arnold is originally from Baton Rouge, while Randy is from Indiana.
Arnold and his wife Kathy moved back to Baton Rouge in 2003, having spent 15 years in San Diego California. While in San Diego, he worked in the education field; working with kids who had learning challenges (ADD, ADHD, and dyslexia). This taught him how to become a great listener and always focus on what was being said. Since returning to Red Stick, Arnold has been selling real estate and raising standard poodles.
Randy, a native Hoosier, and grew up playing basketball. If you’ve seen the movie, “Hoosiers,” that explains much of Randy’s youth. He went to Tennessee Tech on a basketball scholarship and graduated with a master’s degree in chemical engineering and came to work for Dow Chemical in Plaquemine. He married his college sweetheart, Julie, two years later. After 15 years of living in Louisiana and getting “Cajunized,” Randy, Julie and their three children moved back to Julie’s hometown, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to be near her sick parents, but the family moved back to Baton Rouge in 1998 and have been here ever since.
Kairdolf’s and Mehlon’s experiences with Vollara products convinced them to go into business as franchisee partners. In addition to air purification systems, their company, HWP Solutions, offers weight loss, water optimization, nutritional and other products.
