One of the most important requirements as an employer is that your workforce always remains safe and have a healthy and efficient work environment. This means having training, team building, and maintaining a workplace culture. It also means ensuring the building you operate in gets all the required maintenance.
Air quality is an issue that affects more than just the outdoors. In fact, indoor air can be just as polluted and even lead to increased time out from workers being sick which ultimately can hurt the bottom line.
According to the American Lung Association, low-quality indoor air leads to significant lost time and wages due to illness.
In order to remain in compliance with all building and worker health codes, there are things you can do to keep the indoor air cleaner.
Perform all Regular HVAC Work
The first thing you should do to protect the quality of air in your building is to maintain regular HVAC cleanings and repairs. According to the Environmental Protection agency, unclean HVAC coils can result in a 21 percent decrease in system efficiency. During these maintenance visits, expert technicians will clean and inspect air vents and heating systems and can spot dangerous as well as prevent premature breakage or downtime.
Have Vents Cleaned
Performing regular cleanings of your commercial facility’s air duct systems will also save you and your employees time and money. During an air duct cleaning service, we’ll assess the condition of your overall system as well as assurance checks after we’ve completed to job to ensure quality and restore fiberglass installation in the duct system.
Handle Upgrades and Construction Accordingly
It’s important to keep indoor air quality top of mind anytime you’ll be performing upgrades or construction to the building. Dangerous pollutants like radon, mold, particles and other chemicals can create an unhealthy breathing environment. Check that ventilation and moisture are in control and make sure all work is done by professionals who understand the risks of building materials like asbestos especially in older buildings.
