Professional Office Cleaning Improves Indoor Air Quality & Productivity
Employee health has become an issue of concern, more so now than ever. Many businesses are interested in a more environmentally-friendly operation. If you want to provide a safe, healthy environment for your employees, clean, fresh air matters. One of the many benefits of hiring a professional office cleaning service is increased indoor air quality. The air within a regularly cleaned office is healthier to breathe and can lead to increased employee performance and productivity, illness prevention, and fewer sick days. Employees are happier and more productive when their workspace, including the air, is fresh, clean, and free from dust, dirt, and allergens.
Indoor Air Quality Matters
According to new research led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, poor indoor air quality can have a significant impact on your employees’ cognitive function, including response times and ability to focus, and may also affect their productivity. The one-year study, which included participants in offices across six countries working in a variety of fields (engineering, real estate investment, architecture, and technology), found that increased concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) were associated with slower response times and reduced accuracy on a series of cognitive tests.
Currently, indoor air pollution is ranked by the EPA as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Studies conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and others show that indoor environments sometimes can have levels of pollutants that are actually higher than levels found outside. Pollutants in our indoor environment can increase the risk of illness. Several studies by EPA, states and independent scientific panels have consistently ranked indoor air pollution as an important environmental health problem.
While most buildings do not have severe indoor air quality problems, even well-run buildings can experience poor indoor air quality, especially buildings that are not professionally cleaned on a regular basis. An EPA Report to Congress concluded that improved indoor air quality can result in higher productivity and fewer lost workdays. EPA estimates that poor indoor air may cost the nation tens of billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and medical care.
The Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air pollutants can cause immediate effects such as irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and aggravated or worsened allergies and asthma symptoms among asthmatics. Allergies affect many people and are one of the top three reasons why employees miss work. Allergens are carried from home to work, including pet hair and dander, dust mite eggs, and other substances.
Long-term effects are also possible, due to chronic exposure to indoor air pollutants. These effects may include respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer. Almost anyone can be at risk for indoor air pollution depending on their preexisting health conditions and the buildings they reside in.
Indoor air quality is a major concern to businesses, building managers, tenants, and employees because it can impact the health, well-being, and productivity of building occupants. Hiring a professional office cleaning service can help mitigate poor indoor air quality by keeping the environment free of accumulated dust, debris, allergens, and particulate matter.
