This time of year can be frustrating for business owners in the Northwest. It seems like as soon as the fall and winter months arrive more and more people call in sick because of cold symptoms. Of course, there is no cure for the common cold, but what if your office building was actually contributing to your employees’ symptoms? If you own a business and you are getting frustrated with employees always calling in sick, then maybe it’s time to take a closer look at the air you, and they, are breathing.
Dust is everywhere no matter how hard you try to keep it out. However, not all dust is created equal. Some dust has more contaminates than other dust. These contaminates affect how you feel, and when there are too many of them in the air you breathe you’re not going to feel well. Perhaps your office location is full of contaminates that you are not aware of and perhaps they are contributing to your employees’ lack of productivity.
So what can you do? The first step is to contact Better Air Northwest and have us perform respirable dust testing at your location. This test measures the amount of contamination that is moving through your air ducts and vents. We use specialized equipment to gather a sample of your air then have it tested in a lab to measure the amount of contaminates.
If the test shows that there is too much dust in ducts then we recommend getting your air ducts cleaned. This valuable service will enable you and your employees to breathe cleaner, fresher air, which should help cut down on the number of times people call in sick.
