Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is an important determinant of health and well-being. Unfortunately, too many people work in noxious environments. In fact, polluted workplace air is an unacknowledged epidemic. Some building owners are beginning to understand the impact of “sick building syndrome.” But many do not understand how the “office microbiome” can influence worker’s health.
“The stakes are high,” Wired notes,“Americans spend almost 90 percent of their time indoors, so almost all of our microbial exposure occurs inside buildings. That entire time, we’re being enveloped by millions of organisms we can’t see.”
Occupational Health and Safety “suggests...a proactive approach be taken to address IAQ concerns. Failure to respond expeditiously and effectively to IAQ concerns can quickly lead to more numerous or serious adverse health issues.”
For commercial building managers, maintaining a healthy IAQ ensures happy tenants and low vacancy rates. For business owners, healthy air ensures happy employees and increased productivity.
However, worker well being is not the only concern. Clean air ducts can improve the efficiency of heating and cooling units, saving occupants money on energy bills.
