Improving Indoor Air Quality Without Opening a Window

Improve Indoor Air Quallty

We don’t consider the air we share until it starts to affect our physical and mental health. Poor indoor air can cause irritation, headaches, exacerbate allergies, and spread disease more easily. Feeling physically under the weather will lead to poor job performance, fatigue, and even depression. The air we breathe is a major factor in our physical and mental wellbeing and vital to our job performance. While “open a window” tends to be the go-to solution, it’s not always possible in large commercial buildings. If your indoor air quality isn’t as good as it could be, and bringing in outside air isn’t an option, improving indoor air quality without opening a window is not only doable, but should be prioritized.  

Identify the Source

The first task is to identify the source of pollutants. Every part of your building could be contributing to poor indoor air quality, like:

Improving indoor air quality combines a good air purification system and regular professional cleaning and maintenance.

  • New construction
  • Unclean floors, upholstery, carpets
  • Dust
  • HVAC systems
  • Moisture and humidity
  • Cleaning and maintenance products and solutions
  • Office pets
  • Smokers
  • External factors

Eliminating the Source

You’re probably tempted to go straight to an industrial-strength air purification system, but before we get to that, there are a few cleaning and maintenance steps that need to happen.

Sometimes the source of the air pollution is obvious, like with new construction, including new floors, upholstery, and carpets. It’s important to have a professional post-construction clean-up crew that will work safely following all OSHA protocols while getting your building ready for occupants and business to resume.

Specialty floor care, where each type of upholstery, carpet, or flooring material is handled correctly to get rid of any irritants or pollutants that are degrading the indoor air quality, is another necessary step to improving the quality of the air.

Regular Cleaning Services

Dirt, dust, mildew, and mold are all sources of poor air quality, and they will continue to be a problem until the end of time. Unlike post-construction cleaning, carpet cleaning, and even window cleaning, you need a professional janitorial crew to stay on top of every surface and high-touch area in your building. Employees, building managers, vendors, clients, and guests are continuously tracking in dirt and other pollutants on their shoes and clothing, touching everything as they go. It’s a never-ending cycle; fortunately, so are our day and night janitorial services.

Working day and night to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness throughout your building is only as good as the equipment, products, and cleaning solutions. Using harsh chemicals may ensure proper sanitation and sterilization but can lead to more irritation. At KGFS, we take great care to use the most efficient methods to clean a building, from using the proper equipment for each task, surface, and material and using eco-friendly, pet-friendly, and people-friendly products to avoid causing more air pollution but create a clean, healthy, and harmonious atmosphere.
