Why You Need Commercial Indoor Air Quality Products
Most commercial buildings these days are designed to be as airtight as possible, in order to make it easier to maintain climate control. The problem with that is that it also eliminates fresh air flow into the building, trapping contaminants and throwing off the humidity balance. This may not seem like a big deal, but as we mentioned above, airborne contaminants and air that is too dry or too humid can cause a wide range of negative health effects.
Some of the contaminants commonly found in buildings include dust, pollen, dander, mold spores, viruses, and bacteria. Exposure to these contaminants over a long period of time can cause increased allergy attacks, the flu, or even asthma. Low humidity can weaken your defenses against infection, while high humidity can promote mold growth. None of these are things that you want to experience, and all of them are easily preventable with indoor air quality services.
Schedule Commercial Indoor Air Quality Services in Elmhurst, IL
We offer a wide range of commercial indoor air quality services, including:
- Air Purifiers: Air purifiers are devices designed to remove airborne contaminants from your building. The method used varies, depending on the type of air purifier you use. All of them can create a substantial increase in your indoor air quality, though.
- Duct Cleaning: Airborne contaminants tend to collect in the ducts of a building, since they are so rarely cleaned. Then, when a forced air system is activated, a concentrated dose of contaminants is blown around the building. This makes the chances of negative effects from contaminant exposure much higher. Duct cleaning can help prevent that from happening.
- Humidifiers: Air that is too dry causes your skin and the membranes in your nose to dry out and crack. This makes it far more likely for you to be infected by germs. Low humidity also makes furniture and other wood products more brittle. A humidifier helps correct low humidity by releasing moisture into the ducts.
- Dehumidifiers: Air that is too moist is just as bad as air that is too dry. Humid air raises the evaporation point of liquid, making it harder for your body to keep itself cool. It also promotes mold growth, which can be a major health hazard. Dehumidifiers remove excess humidity from the air in order to restore balance.
