With spring allergy season in full swing, it is important to monitor your commercial facility’s indoor air quality. Mold, mildew, dust, and other debris could be circulating throughout your facility, exacerbating employees’ allergy symptoms.
Proper HVAC maintenance can help reduce the issues associated with common causes of poor indoor air quality in commercial spaces:
Mold and mildew
Rainy spring weather can create the perfect conditions for mold and mildew, which can accumulate rapidly in moist environments. When these spores travel through the air, they can aggravate allergies. If your HVAC system is not properly maintained, these irritants can easily circulate throughout your facility.
Dirty air ducts
Without proper maintenance, your HVAC system can harbor dust, dirt, and other allergens. To improve your facility’s indoor air quality, schedule a commercial air duct cleaning with an Enviro-Air specialist.
Most commercial facilities are heavily insulated in order to improve energy efficiency. However, from an air quality standpoint, if indoor air does not have an opportunity to escape, you could be trapping allergens inside. To mitigate the side effects of stagnant air, we recommend running your air conditioner for 20 minutes periodically to circulate the air—even if the temperature inside seems comfortable.
