Indoor air quality is without a doubt an aspect of the workplace that is often taken for granted. However, poor IAQ can do more than cause its fair share of seasonal misery. It can also cause your reputation amongst clients and potential customers to decrease drastically. Bad reviews on the Internet can do more harm to your business prospects than you might imagine. That’s why dealing with this problem is critical. Not only will decreasing indoor air pollution help your bottom line, but with summer on its way, you’ll ensure that everyone can breathe a little easier in the stiflingly hot weather!
Using UVC Lights
Ultraviolet lights are highly efficient at destroying pathogens of all kinds. Using sunscreen and covering up your skin lessens the detrimental effects that UV rays in sunlight have on your body. Those rays are classified as UVA and UVB radiation. UVC also comes from the sun, but it is neutralized by the atmosphere; none of it reaches the planet’s surface. Decontamination and disinfection methods need to be more sophisticated these days. Whether you are battling salmonella or inhibiting the spread of Coronavirus, UVC beams are a magnificent weapon in your arsenal.
Improving Ventilation Configurations
Without good ventilation, interior spaces can quickly become hot and stuffy. This scenario is never pleasant when you are passing through hallways to visit someone at the hospital. Now think about it in terms of working 36-hour shifts at the hospital. How would you feel? Upgrading the ventilation systems represents a major step toward eliminating pollution ruining your building’s IAQ. Fresh air is constantly cycling in, which removes old and stale air. Foul odors are also contained and contaminants eliminated. Exhaust fans are incredibly valuable, even if they seem like one of the most basic types of ventilation apparatuses.
Investing in VRF Technology to Control Humidity
VRF technology is an innovation in the world of commercial HVAC systems. Too much humidity is just as bad as not enough – it can make the indoor air quality of any building – whether for residential or commercial purposes – intolerable. Mold and mildew thrive in extremely humid conditions; COVID, on the other hand, is bolstered by low humidity. That’s why you need to strike a proper balance to do your part to end the pandemic!
