Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) & Your Business

The rate of absenteeism and decline in employee productivity due to health issues is on the rise in commercial and industrial buildings. Research shows that the cause is linked in certain capacity to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) as a result of limited or ineffective ventilation in buildings.

In most buildings, the inside air has more pollutants and in some instances, has been shown to be five times more hazardous to human health than outside air

As a business owner or facilities manager, you have a responsibility to provide a safe, healthy and clean workplace. This means that you are also responsible for maintaining proper air quality inside the large residential and commercial complexes and industrial facilities. Optimal inside air quality (IAQ) can be achieved by using air filtration systems, such as HEPA air filters and purifiers.

HEPA filters have been shown to have the capacity to capture up to 99% of the harmful particles in the air, ensuring high levels of Indoor Air Quality and a reduction in the negative affects of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).

HEPA Air Filtration Systems Benefits

The HEPA filter captures even the tiniest dust particles, mold spores, pollens and bacteria in the air. The harmful particles are then destroyed, resulting in clean air for safe breathing. This reduces the exposure of the building’s occupants to airborne irritants and allergens.

Apart from cleaning the contaminants from the air, a properly designed and implemented filtration system can:

  • Eliminates smoke particles and odors from the air - immensely helpful in improving indoor air quality.
  • Reduces cleaning expenses by removing dust and particles that might adhere to various surfaces, upholstery and carpeting

Air filter installation is best left to the professionals like CORE whose industry recognized accreditation from the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) and Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) will help to ensure that your air filtration design and installation meets, or exceeds the recognized industry standards.

The Importance of Working With a State Licensed Air Conditioning Contractorstate-licensed-air-conditioning-contractor

To deal with the problems arising from slowly deteriorating IAQ, commercial and industrial facilities need to ensure that the AC ducts are cleaned and serviced regularly and that their equipment has been optimized in accordance with ASHRAE standards.

The reality is that with so much at stake, it does not pay to work with unlicensed contractors who often lack the education, hands-on training and cutting edge technologies granted by state licensing.

As a certified member in good standing of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Core is an industry leading HVAC service provider and offers varied services to improve ventilation and system optimization. In addition, Core offers repair, maintenance and often total system replacements to industrial and commercial facilities.
