Recent studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency show that indoor pollution levels are approximately five times higher than those found outdoors due to contaminants from a variety of sources. Dusty cooling and heating systems, tracked-in soil and cleaning products are all to blame for the heightened levels, according to researchers.
Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions can make their offices a more comfortable place to breathe by taking a few precautionary measures. First, scraper mats for shoes should be placed outside of the entry way to keep pollen and mold from being tracked indoors. Next, heating and cooling systems must be cleaned on a regular basis. Regularly using a vacuum with a HEPA filter can also help.
To significantly lower your chances of breathing complications, purchase an air purifier for your workplace. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one air purifier that can dramatically reduce the number of contaminants in an office space.
This purifier covers up to 900 square feet of space. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, such as dust, pollen and pet dander.
