It is not unusual for homeowners to be concerned about indoor air quality for the health of their family. However, it might surprise you that it is just as important to keep an eye on it at your business. Poor indoor air quality can pose a significant health threat and result in lost productivity when your staff suffers from chronic conditions related to compromised air quality. With that said, one factor involved in protecting your employees is to keep up with commercial air duct cleaning. This will reduce contaminants being recirculated throughout the building. So, how do you know if you really need this done or not? Here are a few guidelines to consider:
- Increase in absenteeism. If you cannot attribute an increase in absenteeism to another cause, such as a management issue or other poor working conditions, it might truly be due to illness and commercial air duct cleaning could help you see an improvement.
- Janitorial department reports more dust than usual. Dirty air ducts usually equate to more dust on desks, filing cabinets, and even on industrial equipment.
- It has been more than a year since you had it done. A proactive plan involves scheduling commercial air duct cleaning each year. Every business is different, however, with some needing it more frequently and others able to stretch it out a bit. When you have it done next, ask the team how dirty your ducts were, and you’ll have a better gauge on the frequency needed.
- Has there been a bout of illness going around? After flu season and any other virus situation, you might want to consider commercial air duct cleaning to be sure your business is clear of it and business can get back to normal without concern it will get started all over again.
