COMBAT POLLUTANTS INVADING YOUR BUSINESS
Every day, perhaps without your knowing, your Gastonia, NC business is bombarded by invaders masking as airborne pollutants and contaminants. Here are some examples of some of the particles that can be negatively impacting employee and customer health and comfort:
- Dust Mites: Dust mites can be very harmful triggers for those who suffer from allergies or asthma. No matter how clean you may think your workspace is, it can be exposed to dust mites at any time.
- Mold: Mold and mildew can form when they have the right environment to thrive in. As they seek dark, cool spaces to grow, your company’s ductwork is an easy target.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): VOCs exist in paint, paint thinner, pesticides, cleaning compounds, printer and printer cartridges, and many other items that are commonly found in commercial settings. VOCs can lead to a number of health issues, including respiratory problems and flu–like symptoms.
Your business can suffer from due to any of the above–mentioned airborne particles, or even from dust, dander, and pollen. You’ll also have to deal with excess humidity in the summer and dry air during the cooler months.
WHAT COMMERCIAL IAQ PRODUCTS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU?
A properly installed high–efficiency air filtration system will trap any unwanted pollutants in the air of your Gastonia, NC business by passing them through the ventilation system within a mesh of fibers. Air purifiers such as electronic air cleaners and UV filters that are professionally installed by our licensed technicians are efficient at removing harmful airborne particles from the indoor air and ductwork within your business.
Optimal relative humidity levels indoors should be between 30–50%. Any lower than this, and your air may become too dry and lead to damaged electronics and wooden furniture. However, if there’s too much excess moisture, this can be just as bad as it will lead to mold development among other health threats. Heat and energy recovery ventilators also help with humidity levels, allowing you to transfer fresh air in without losing any conditioned air, and thus saving energy.
WE OFFER COMPREHENSIVE INDOOR AIR QUALITY SERVICES
The ductwork in your commercial business does a large amount of work year–round. Naturally, as a result your ducts will begin to wear down, and eventually will require repair—or replacement. Ignoring breached ductwork is a mistake, as this can lead to leaks, which allow dust and other allergens to reenter your home through the ventilation system.
As part of ductwork repair, we offer duct sealing, where our licensed and certified HVAC technicians use professional–grade mastic sealing to seal off your ducts, preventing unnecessary air loss. Before you think about using "duct tape" to do this job yourself, remember that duct tape is not actually aptly named. One final service we offer to Gastonia, NC businesses is duct testing, where we use specialized equipment and experience to determine if there is a blockage or some other sort of damage to your ducts.
