Not Feeling Well? Maybe Your Workplace is to Blame!

If you have been suffering at work – this may be the cause.

Most of us go to work everyday and there are a large variety of workplace settings.

Each workplace has its unique environment but one thing they probably all have in common is allergens.

Anything from pesticides to solvents and cleaners to harmful gases and mold spores can be lurking in your work environment.

Although you may not be able to see these things all around you, they can still be there and affect your health.

Did you know that if a co-worker owns a pet, they can bring the pet’s dander to work with them and then you become exposed to it.

If you experience a stuffy nose, dizziness, headaches, burning/itchy eyes, sore throat, fatigue or other symptoms, allergens in your workplace could be the cause.

Clients or customers who visit your workplace to do business can also be affected by allergens lurking there.

So, what can be done to help improve and keep the air quality in your workplace as free as possible from allergens and contaminants?

Here are some tips:

  • Make sure your workplace is well ventilated
  • Have regular maintenance done to your air conditioning system/s
  • Quickly address any leaks, dampness or high humidity
  • Cleaning people should use environmentally and people friendly cleaning products when cleaning your workplace
  • Have an air purifier installed to reduce odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), smoke, mold bacteria and viruses

Providing an allergen free workplace for your employees can result in better productivity and less sick days used plus clients or customers will be able to breathe easy when visiting your business.

Is the Air in your Workplace Making you Sick?

5 Sep

commercial air purifierAccording to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, “A variety of vague and hard-to-pinpoint symptoms are experienced by an undetermined, but possibly sizable number of adults and children. Occasionally, they may suggest allergy or asthma, but most often the symptoms are much wider in scope.”

If you own a business, you should consider the people who visit your business including yourself, employees, customers, service techs, other business people, friends and family. How many of them may be affected by the environment in your building?

People with asthma, allergies and/or sensitivities can experience congestion, itchy eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing or other aggravating symptoms.

There are all types of odors, air pollutants, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), smoke, mold, bacteria and viruses that you probably may not even know exist in your business environment. Walls, furniture, mold and carpets are just some of the things that can be emitting these into your environment.

Employees who have allergies or are sensitive to something in their work environment may miss more days of work or be less productive because they do not feel well and/or are dealing with irritating symptoms.

There are things you can do to help keep your employees, customers and anyone with allergies or sensitivities more comfortable while spending time at your place of business.

1. Use non VOC paint on walls or anyplace where paint is used.
2. Place Eco Friendly furniture in your workplace for employees to use and in your customer waiting area.
3. Install chemical free carpeting or green flooring like cork, natural linoleum or non glued laminate.
4. Have your a/c unit maintained and duct work cleaned.
5. Have an Air Knight REME air purification system installed in your place of business.

The Air Knight REME is designed to help eliminate sick building syndrome by reducing odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), smoke, mold bacteria and viruses. The Air Knight REME is easily mounted into air conditioning and heating system air ducts where many sick building problems start.

Living with asthma, allergies or sensitivities is no fun and can be very irritating and debilitating. As an employer, it is important that your employees and visitors to your business feel comfortable and want to return often.

Which side of this picture represents your home’s air quality?

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, about 25 million Americans have asthma and 60% of those are allergy related. 1.7 million emergency room visits and 10 million out patient visits each year are due to asthma related problems. Asthma costs almost 18 billion dollars each year.

According to Cleveland Clinic there are a variety of Asthma triggers to include:

  • Indoor allergens: animal dander, molds, dust mites, cockroaches
  • Weather: Changes to humidity, temperature and cold air
  • Strong emotions: Crying, laughing or yelling really hard and anxiety
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Infections: Colds, flu, viruses and sinus infections
  • Strong odors: Cleaning products, perfumes etc.

An air purifier is a great way to help reduce many of the allergens in your home that can trigger an asthma attack. There are many air purifiers on the market. If noise and space are a factor, you may want to consider an air purifier that is not visible and makes no noise.

We install the Air Knight system for residential or commercial use. The Air Knight Residential Air Purification System will reduce bacteria, odors, viruses, mold, smoke and VOC’s (chemical odors- from paint, cleaning products etc..) from your home. This home air purifier easily mounts onto your air conditioning and heating air ducts.

Inside of these air ducts is where most of these problems start but with the Air Knight Air Purifier, an advanced oxidation process is created. This process consists of: Hydro-peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions. All friendly oxidizers (they revert back to oxygen and hydrogen after the oxidation of the pollutant.

An asthma attack can be very uncomfortable, scary and dangerous. The key to living with asthma is to set up your environment to help avoid attacks and the Air Knight system can help remove many triggers from your home or business.

What is your indoor air quality?

Maintain good air quality in your home

Most people go about their daily routine without ever thinking about the quality of the air in their home.   According to the EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency), mold, dust mites, pet dander (skin flakes), droppings and body parts from cockroaches, rodents and other pests or insects, viruses, and bacteria are all sources of poor indoor air quality. Many of these biological contaminants are small enough to be inhaled.

Did you know that the saliva from your pet dries then can become airborne?  As much as you may love Fido or Fluffy, do you really want to breathe in their saliva?  Most of our homes contain some of these: Pollens, bacteria, virus’, odors, smoke and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).  If these things are floating around in the air microscopically, we are inhaling them without even realizing the dangers.

These toxins can cause asthma, dizziness, watery eyes, shortness of breath, fever and even digestive problems to name a few.  Southwest Florida is warm most of the time which helps bacteria grow and thrive.  A central air system can become a breeding ground for all types of microbes.  So, what can you do to stay cool and maintain good indoor air quality?

There is an easy solution to help you breathe easier and not worry about what is floating around in the air in your home.  The Air Knight, an excellent home air purifier easily mounts onto your existing air conditioning and heating air ducts.  This air purifier works so well it will help keep your air germ free as well as household surfaces like tables and counters.

RDS Air Conditioning works hard to keep your air conditioner running at peak performance.  Check out all of our services.
