- Install an Air Cleaner
- Clean More Frequently
- Have HELP Filters Installed
- Prevent Mold from Growing
There are air cleaners that can filter the air in your commercial property and get rid of many of the particulate matter that can otherwise lower the quality of the indoor air. There are a number of air cleaners available on the market, from options that can clean the air in a single room to professionally installed air cleaners capable of cleaning an entire building. These types of air cleaners work great on dust and hair, but are less effective against gaseous pollutants.
It is likely that you have a cleaning crew at your commercial property but how often do they clean? If you are only having the office vacuumed once very week or two, you may consider have it cleaned more often. This can help keep the dust under control and can even help your HVAC system to work much more efficiently throughout the summer.
Of course you have an HVAC filter installed, but they are not all created equal. If you use a HEPA filter, it will screen out much more of the particulates in the air than a non-HEPA filter would. Yes, it is true that HEPA filters are more expensive, but they are actually extremely cost effective when you consider how much they can do to boost the air quality in your office.
One of the most dangerous of all indoor air pollutants is mold. While it is extremely difficult to get rid of mold once it has grown, it is much easier to prevent it from growing in the first place. Remember that mold generally thrives in wet areas, so the best way to prevent it from growing is to prevent areas of excessive moisture.
If you have any type of leaking pluming fixture or pipe, fix it right away. If you have damp ceilings, walls, or other components of your property, make sure they are dried and repaired immediately. It should always be a priority to prevent and fix damp areas right away, but this is especially true in the summer when warmer temperatures can encourage mold growth.
