Can You Clean Air? How a Green Commercial Cleaning Company Improves Indoor Air Quality.
September 7, 2016
According to the EPA “Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.” One very effective way to control indoor pollutants and improve indoor air quality in general is to contract a green commercial cleaning company.
One does not immediately think of a cleaning contractor having an effect on the air quality inside and around your workspace. First and foremost, the use of a high quality HEPA filtration vacuum will eliminate many micro-dust particles and pollutants. How many? 99.97% at 0.3 microns to be exact.
Now, vacuuming can’t eliminate all dust particles. And that is where the use of effective dusting techniques comes in. Traditional feather or wool dusters and cleaning rags do not cut it. A service provider like ProCleaners uses microfiber dusters and microfiber cleaning towels. In many cases the use of an environmentally safe cleaning chemical or furniture polish will aide in picking up dust effectively.
The use of the type of chemicals described above also plays a part in improving indoor air quality. Chemicals that are certified to be environmentally kind will give great cleaning results without adding harsh pollutants or fumes to the air. The most reputable certifications are Green Seal and UL EcoLogo.
