How To Improve the Air Quality in Your Commercial Property
Did you know that the air quality in your commercial property is often much worse than the air quality outdoors? This usually stems from dirty HVAC systems and chemicals indoors for cleaning, disinfecting, and air freshening. So, how can you effectively tackle improving air quality at the property?
Regular cleaning of floors and carpets is an absolute must. These surfaces carry various organisms, and other extras that microbes may feast on that are unhealthy to you or those in your building. These can then get pulled into the HVAC system and recirculated throughout the property. Routine vacuuming can help eliminate up to 85% of dirt and prevents further particle accumulation. It significantly reduces this risk and the accompanying risks of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses.
There has been renewed interest in growing indoor plants. While you should be mindful of the types of plants and the number introduced per square foot, some plants can improve air quality. They do this by removing some of the toxins in the air and providing fresher air, in the same way that trees preserve the outdoor environment.
The chances are that you have filters at various places around the property, including HVAC filters, vacuums, and air purifier filters. Cleaning or changing these regularly reduces the toxins circulating throughout the home, which can preserve the air quality for yourself and your family. Be sure to keep extras on hand to reduce the likelihood of passing the recommended expiration date.
Taking the time to ensure the air quality in your commercial building is clean will reduce the risk of toxic pathogens and help improve overall health. Contact our duct cleaning technicians at R.S. Andrews by calling 770-766-7354 or emailing us to schedule your next HVAC appointment.
