Improving Indoor Air Quality at Your Business

11/22/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Improving Indoor Air Quality at Your Business SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle can help you improve the indoor air quality of your office.

Know What Affects Your Indoor Air Quality and Why it Matters

Most people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors. Much of that time, for adults, is spent in an office or warehouse environment. Indoor air quality can contribute to the health and comfort of your employees, customers, and all who visit your place of business.

Why Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?

Many studies suggest that the level of pollutants indoors often surpasses the pollutants outdoors. Poor indoor air quality can potentially impact the health and wellbeing of your employees.

According to OSHA, the following symptoms have been linked to poor indoor air quality:

  • Nose, lung, throat, and eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Concentration difficulty

What Affects Indoor Air Quality?

Fixing indoor air quality is not as simple of a fix as changing a pipe or washing a window. Several independent factors, both indoors and out, can contribute to poor indoor air quality.

Potential factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Outdoor pollutants such as smoke, smog, etc.
  • Poor ventilation and/or insulation
  • Inadequate moisture and humidity control
  • Untreated smoke damage
  • Spilt chemicals and leaking gases
  • Dust, dirt, and animal dander
  • Fungi, pollen, and other biological matter
  • Tobacco 

What Can SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle Do?

As mentioned before, many factors can impact indoor air quality. Fortunately, we offer comprehensive services that tackle many of these factors. At SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle, we offer inspections with recommendations for the best course of action to leave your office with cleaner air.

HVAC Systems

Without regular attention, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can spread contaminants throughout your office. We offer regular inspections and cleanings so your office enjoys cleaner air and longer-lasting HVAC systems.

Mold Remediation

Mold, especially if left untreated long term, may pose health risks to your employees according to the EPA. Mold spores can travel through the air, impacting the indoor air quality and spreading the mold throughout the building. We have the training, equipment, and experience necessary to contain the mold, restore your property, and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Fire and Smoke Damage

Walls, carpets, and even furniture can carry smoke and soot long after the fire is put out, which can impact your indoor air quality. If your property experiences a fire, we can handle the damage both big and small. We can also make sure your building and its contents are properly cleaned.

Water Damage

No matter whether the water damage was caused by a leaky roof, a broken pipe, or a flooded basement, moisture and humidity may lead to poor indoor air quality, along with other significant problems. We can help to identify the source of the problem and fix any damage that may have occurred.

Commercial Cleaning

We also offer commercial cleaning services that go above and beyond typical janitorial or maid services. Regular cleaning can help combat potential air pollutants like dust, dirt, pollen, etc.

Cleaner air can lead to a healthier and more productive workforce. It also can improve your clients’ and visitors’ experiences with your company. If your company could benefit from any of our services, call SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle, DE
