Create a Healthier Workplace
Now more than ever, a clean environment is vital to maintaining a productive and comfortable workspace. Although most owners and office managers have cleaning programs, air quality concerns are often overlooked or considered an extra expense. However, improving your facility’s air quality can benefit the health and well-being of your staff and visitors. At Anchor World Services, we understand the importance of keeping a commercial operation clean and sanitary, and we would like to share a few tips on improving the air quality in your workplace.
A casual working environment is beneficial for many professional companies, but establishing rules and procedures for employees is essential for keeping your air contaminate-free. Incense or scented candles may be relaxing for some workers, but the chemicals released from the products can cause respiratory issues for other sensitive employees. Banning candles and incense burners can also reduce the chance of an accidental fire.
Replacing your air filters several times a year is crucial to improved air quality. Your HVAC provider likely changes the filters, but find out how often and if you need to increase the frequency. Experts recommend quarterly filter replacements, but if the filters appear opaque with dust every time you change them, switch to a monthly schedule.
Placing indoor plants around your workplace can improve the atmosphere and the quality of the air. Plants absorb toxins, and most indoor varieties are simple to maintain with adequate natural light. Before bringing new flowering shrubs or trees, ask your staff if anyone has allergies to the plants.
Although some businesses try to rely on in-house labor for cleaning duties, many quickly switch to a cleaning service when they realize the labor cost and equipment expense involved. As a cleaning provider who uses the most up-to-date equipment and supplies, we will do our part to improve the air quality in your building.
