Indoor Air Pollutants effecting health of working people.

Indoor Air Pollutants effecting health of working people.

When you think of pollution, tailpipes and smokestacks are probably what come to mind — not your office. But our offices are filled with noxious substances that can be harmful to your health.

Given the fact that we spend from 65 to 90 percent of our time inside, according to the Washington Department of Health, it’s important to keep indoor air clean.

“Most of the things that cause problems are odorless.” Dr. Nicholas Busba. “So, in many cases there’s nothing to alert you to the problem.” That is theres nothing other than the symptoms thease allergens can trigger. Such as respritory problems (including asthma flare ups) and fatigue.

Here are some tips to keep you office air fresh and healthy.

  1. Keep it clean- Good indoor hygine can greatly cut down on dust mites, germs and mold.
  2. Dust surfaces regularly.
  3. Change your filters regularly.
  4. Vacuum all floors daily wth hepa filter vacuums.
  5. Invest in a good floor matting system. This traps dirt in the mat instead of making it airbourne.
  6. Have a good carpet cleaning routine in place.
  7. Mop hard floors daily.
  8. Use eco-friendly cleaning products whenever possible.
  9. Let fresh air in.
  10. Invest in an air purifier.
  11. Cutting out smoking – over 4000 chemicals are in cigarette smoke.
  12. Monitor humidity – it should be between 30-50%.
  13. Monitor ventilation.
  14. Keep some greenery indoors. Many plants scrub you air.
  15. Keep air ducts free from dust and dirt.
