Air pollution is the world’s second leading cause of death from non-communicable diseases, and outdoor pollution is a huge part of the problem. Traffic fumes, industrial emissions, combustion by-products, and pollen are all pollutants that contribute to causing short and long term health issues from asthma to premature death. Polluted outdoor air enters into our workplaces, homes and other facilities through open doors and windows or via the ventilation system. Without proper air cleaning, these pollutants accumulate and negatively affect the people that stay indoors. In fact, indoor air is often up to 50 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the European Union. However, with the right air cleaning solutions for your facility, you can create a safer and healthier indoor environment.
Most businesses and facilities struggle with air quality issues related to outdoor pollution to varying degrees. Outdoor pollutants such as traffic fumes, industrial emissions, combustion by-products, and pollen spread into the facilities through leaks in the construction, open windows, cargo bays, and the ventilation system, contaminating the indoor air. In fact, indoor air is often up to 50 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the European Union, ECA report no 23. This in turn increases the risk of the people who stay in the building suffering from serious health issues. For many businesses, this also means increased absence and decreased productivity. In other words, poor air quality can have long-term negative effects on both the people who stay in the facility and the business itself.
