It’s no secret that air pollution can affect an individual’s health — whether it´s indoor or outdoor! In fact, indoor air quality can be a serious health concern for you and your workforce. Dust, dirt, and other debris or harmful microbes can certainly affect productivity in your workplace to varying degrees.
There are many aspects that go into air quality, and many routes to take to improve it, ranging from simple changes like adding more plants to your space or replacing furniture or carpets that harbor dust. Here are a few methods to consider when looking to improve air quality.
Air circulation within your workspace is very important when it comes to improving indoor air quality. This is because allowing air to move freely throughout your space helps regulate temperature, prevent debris or mold from building up, and makes breathing easier for everyone in the space. Be sure that any HVAC appliances you may have are properly maintained, and that all air filters are changed on a regular schedule – this could be between one and sixth months depending on your specific location.
In addition, be careful that you keep track of what’s entering your space though the windows – if pollution, cigarette smoke, dust and debris, etc. are making their way in, usually they have a hard time making their way out – meaning your workforce will usually be exposed to them.
Removing dust and other harmful debris from the workspace should be a routine operation for proper air quality at your jobsite. Dusty or damp surfaces can promote mold or mildew growth, which can contribute to poor air quality as well.
Carpets are generally more difficult to clean and trap tons of dust – meaning for an indoor work setting, carpets are generally not recommended.
Add More Greenery
Certain indoor plants have the added bonus of improving air quality in addition to their aesthetic benefits. They actively provide oxygen and filter harmful gases out of the air, both of which help tremendously when seeking to improve air quality at your location.
