At Oohesy Cleaning Services, our hope is that customers will reap the benefit of improved indoor air quality. Indoor Air Pollution can be just as bad as outdoor air. The most effective way to improve IAQ is to control sources of pollution.
SOURCES OF POLLUTION:
To start with, there are 5 basic compounds that impact Indoor Air Quality.
- Toxic compound
- Infectious illness compound
- Microbial growth
- safety gases
Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources. If too little outdoor air enters indoors, pollutants can accumulate to levels that can pose health and comfort problems.
Sources that can affect Indoor Air Quality:
Cigarette smoke contains chemical compounds which are highly toxic to the respiratory system.
Without sufficient ventilation, these tiny pollutants can easily circulate in the buildings triggering allergy symptoms in some people.
- Fuel-burning combustion appliances
Combustion appliances are those that burn fuels for heating, cooking, or decorative purposes.
WAYS TO IMPROVE I.A.Q IN YOUR FACILITY
- Observe proper ventilation
Ventilation is key when it comes to improving air quality. The common natural ventilation is to open windows, and plant vegetation to freshen the air. You can also make use of a fan to push the air around. If otherwise, we do not observe proper ventilation, we are going to create a box of stale air. The stale air will affect us in the long run.
- Keep Carpets Clean
Another way to care for indoor air quality is by paying special attention to your floors, and carpets. Carpets need to be maintained and cleaned regularly. Carpets with high traffic need deep cleaning services 3 times a year to reduce the trapping allergens and germs. When choosing cleaning companies, you do not need a company that uses a process that can take longer to dry carpets.
