It’s winter in Minnesota, which means we’ll be spending the next few months indoors. As employees come back to the office, it’s important to monitor indoor air quality. Not only will this protect the overall health of workers, but it also makes a workplace more comfortable. Good air quality can also improve productivity and creativity.
Indoor air often feels clean, but there are hidden pollutants that can make it unsafe. These include dust, mold, mildew, chemicals from furniture and paint, cigarette smoke that lingers on clothing and skin, and more. However, there are a few easy ways to improve the air quality of your office or workplace, as discussed by Corporate Wellness Magazine.
Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Keep a Clean Workplace
When your workplace is regularly cleaned, there are fewer dirt, dust and allergen particles on surfaces and in the air. Consider daily or weekly commercial cleaning services to keep your office clean, healthy and safe.
Use Commercial Air Cleaning Devices
Install air purifiers, air scrubbers, dehumidifiers, and other air cleaning devices as needed. These will maintain air quality with little work on your part.
Change HVAC Filters Often
Regularly clean HVAC systems and replace filters. This will prevent pollutants from recirculating.
Test Air Regularly
Set a schedule for regular indoor air quality testing. These tests include: humidity, air flow, mold growth, ventilation, odors, water damage, and more.
Keep air vents unblocked. If possible, open windows on a regular basis to allow outdoor air to circulate into the building. Consider adding indoor plants for natural air purification (among other positive benefits).
