The importance of air care services in commercial buildings

19th December 2023·Hints & Tips

The importance of prioritising air care services in shared interior spaces has become a widely recognised factor of hygiene processes. Maintaining optimal air quality in your building can protect against the spread of diseases and enhance the general well-being and productivity of individuals in a variety of settings, including offices, care facilities, and educational institutions.

To maintain the effective operation of their organisation, business owners in particular must understand and prioritise clean air solutions within their buildings. Poor air quality is known to have several detrimental effects on employees within commercial buildings that have the potential to result in consequences for businesses.

In this blog post, we will discuss why air care services within commercial buildings are vital for businesses and how NWR Hygiene can help your company mitigate these negative effects.

Why are air care services important?

Employee productivity is a key concern for businesses across all sectors, and while millions of pounds are spent each year on training and the creation of productive workplaces, one simple factor to productivity appears to be consistently overlooked, and that is the quality of the air within commercial buildings.

Studies have shown that exposure to indoor air pollution correlates to a decrease in productivity across the workforce. Employees who are exposed to high levels of air pollution experience impaired cognitive function, increased levels of stress, and poor concentration. Exposure to high indoor air quality however has been shown to have the opposite effect, as well as improve employee performance and result in a 58% decrease in employee sick days and a 27% decrease in employee turnover.

Furthermore, poor air quality environments tend to be breeding grounds for bacteria and can increase the risk of illness, leading to an increase in employee absences. Many buildings with poor air quality also have a high rate of employees who suffer from Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).

SBS refers to a condition in which people within a building experience negative health and wellness issues that don’t occur outside the workplace. Symptoms of SBS often include headaches, eye, nose and throat irritation, fatigue and dizziness, which tend to decrease or disappear completely when outside of the building’s environment.

Extended exposure to air pollution can also worsen pre-existing health conditions and raise the risk of several illnesses, such as lung function, cancer, and heart attacks.

Air care is particularly important in healthcare, care home and educational facilities as buildings within these sectors genuinely host a large volume of vulnerable individuals. As bacteria find it easier to spread in environments with poor air quality, installing appropriate air care items will assist in limiting the number of airborne diseases that spread throughout these facilities. This can lead to both increased employee productivity and positive customer experiences.
