How to Improve Office Air Quality

Oct 10, 2017

If you work in an office, chances are you spend a great deal of your waking hours there. Indoor air quality is important in the home, but it’s just as significant in the workplace. Check out these tips for improving the quality of indoor air in your office and promote a healthier and safer workplace.

How to Improve Office Air Quality

  • PLANTS – They are a great addition to the workplace because they absorb toxins from the air and are known to be natural air purifiers. Additionally, they can help create a more pleasing and relaxing environment.
  • HUMIDITY – If you have a humidifier, make sure you know how it works, and adjust the humidity levels when the indoor air feels either too dry or too damp.
  • AIR VENTS – Don’t block indoor air vents with furniture or other items that can restrict airflow. Computers and other heat-generating machines should be set up away from HVAC sensors to avoid unnecessary cooling system triggers.
  • SMOKING – Do not allow smoking of any kind indoors, as this is a very easy way to contaminate the air throughout your office and is a danger to the health of non-smokers as well.
  • EMISSIONS – Machines that produce emissions should be located as far away as possible from occupied spaces and air vents. Loading docks and other areas where vehicle emissions and exhaust can be present should have their own separate section of the building and should not be located near employees and visitors.
  • AIR FILTERS – Regularly change the air filters in your HVAC unit. Heating and cooling professionals recommend changing them at least 3-4x a year.
  • ALLERGENS – Be aware of allergens or air pollutants that are present in your office. Whether your employees like to burn candles, or you have an office pet who sheds fur and dander into the office, you may want to consider more thorough cleaning regimens or changing your air filter once a month.
  • REGULAR CLEANING – Schedule a regular cleaning service with a local professional cleaning company in order to keep dirt and dust at bay.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision. Kudos to Kent Clean!!! Thanks Larry!"
