A 1989 EPA report to Congress concluded that improved indoor air quality can result in higher productivity and fewer lost work days. The EPA estimates that poor indoor air may cost the nation tens of billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and medical care!
Studies suggest that minimizing people's exposure to pollutants can improve IAQ and raise productivity. Some of these pollutants include:
- Fungi (including molds)
- Dust mites
- Animal dander
All of these things can be brought into the building by occupants, infiltration and ventilation air. Allergic responses to indoor pollutants can cause symptoms in allergic individuals and also trigger asthma episodes for an estimated 15 million Americans.
If you have a concern about the IAQ in your building, maybe you should consider having your ducts cleaned or having your building tested for pollutants.
