Maintaining efficient indoor air quality is a vital part of the day-to-day of running an office building. There are numerous workers toiling away every single day, so if the air quality is lackluster, those employees may find themselves coming down sick with a variety of different illnesses. There are different ways to achieve improved air quality, though.

The Underlying Factors

First, you should manage the pollutants within the office by removing them from the entire building or isolating them entirely. Pollutants can be dilated or removed through ventilation, which should be regularly checked upon by a technician. A filtration device, installed within the ventilation system, can offer increased support and more clean air. A few factors that contribute to poor air quality include pollutants, odors, poor maintenance of the ventilation system, moisture, and even humidity. These must all be carefully managed and covered when possible.

Things Everyone Can Do

No doubt there are a few workers in the office right now. Every single person can pitch in to ensure the air quality in the office is up to standards. For example, by simply being aware of indoor issues, the occupants can prevent excess pollutants.

  • Do not block air vents or grills.
  • Comply with smoking policies
  • Clean up any water spills as soon as possible.
  • Dispose of garbage properly
  • Store food properly
  • Notify the manager of any indoor air quality problems

Exceptional Air Quality

Should the aforementioned acts be carried out regularly, the air quality within the office will begin to increase exponentially. Regular cleaning days or crews can be scheduled to ensure the entire office is spotless. Should you have further questions or concerns regarding indoor air quality within an office environment, we urge you to call Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® at (706) 914-1617.
