Indoor Air Quality at Work
For most people, many hours each day are spent at their place of employment. Most people do not give much thought to the air they are breathing until the air is not clean and begins to cause problems. An employer should ensure that the indoor air quality of his or her business is free of pollutants, dust, dirt, allergens, and other debris that can have a negative effect on the health of employees and visitors to the building.
The professional commercial air duct technicians have the experience, knowledge, skills, and equipment to properly clean air ducts to improve the indoor air quality of your building.
Why is indoor air quality important?
If the air quality is poor in your building, employees will more than likely be sick with illnesses such as colds, sinus infections, and allergies. This means your employees will be less productive when they are at work and will miss more days per year due to illness. This means less work being produced by your business or company and ultimately. Good employees are hard to find so you will want to take excellent care of them and that begins with ensuring that the air they breathe daily is healthy, clean, and fresh.
What causes poor indoor air quality?
Breathing quality indoor air is vital to good health. The air we breathe is extremely important and must be free of pollutants such as allergens and dust. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), health issues like asthma affects 25 million people each year including children. Asthma is caused by allergens like mold and pollen and pollutants in the air.
The symptoms of poor air quality include irritation of the eyes, throat, skin, and nose, headaches, fatigue, shortness of breath, sinus congestion, coughing, sneezing, dizziness, and allergies. To combat this for you and your employees in your building, you need to ensure that the indoor air quality is excellent.
The causes of poor indoor air quality include pollutants in your building’s ventilation system such as the levels of moisture and humidity inside the system and the number of pollutants that have formed inside your ventilation system. Heating and cooling systems in your commercial building are the perfect place for contaminants such as mold, mildew and dust to grow and thrive. The motor and fan units in your ventilation system then carry those contaminants throughout your building, causing employees, visitors, and yourself to breathe them in. Maintaining a clean ventilation system is the main way to improve the indoor air quality in your building and continue to keep the air fresh, clean, and free of pollutants.
