There are many reasons why commercial buildings should be cleaned. The most important is the employees that work in the building. Sick Building Syndrome is a health condition that can occur and reduce work efficiency and increase absenteeism. Sick Building Syndrome is a situation that occurs when occupants of a building start to experience some health issues directly related to the air quality in the building. This could be building wide or contained in a particular area. Occupants can have headache, nausea, eye, nose or throat irritation, dry cough, itchy skin and a variety of other symptoms. They will report that they symptoms are relieved after leaving the building.
There are many factors that could cause Sick Building Syndrome but we will focus on the issues that are found inside ductwork. This includes dust, pollen, bacteria, rodents, rodent droppings, insects, fungus and molds. If proper care was not taken by covering ducts during renovations, you could be dealing with sawdust, sheet rock dust or other construction debris.
Visible dust and mold on vent covers is not only unsightly but lends to an unhealthy environment. A clean, well maintained building is far more professional especially if clients visit your offices.
Cleaning and sanitizing the ductwork in your building at least once every three years will greatly reduce the symptoms mentioned in this article. It will help your HVAC system work more efficient. Most importantly, it will show your employees that you care enough about them by keeping their environment free of contaminants.
