The Importance of Indoor Air Quality in Nevada
- Air Quality
Even when you’re at your office or wherever you work, indoor air quality in Nevada is an important consideration. You might remember the scare from when people realized asbestos wasn’t as good of an insulator as we thought. Issues like that one show how important it is to consider what’s in your office’s air. Read our guide on indoor air quality to learn about why it’s important and what you can do to improve it.
Why is indoor air quality in Nevada so important?
The EPA says Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors. In addition, many spend most of their working hours in an office environment. If you work the classic 9-to-5 office job, you spend eight hours a weekday in an office for a total of 40/168 hours. Other studies done by the EPA show that some indoor environments have more pollutants in the air than outside. These pollutants can increase the risk of illness and cause other health problems, such as mesothelioma from asbestos.
Various studies by the EPA and other sources rank indoor air quality as an important environmental health problem. Even if your building gets frequent maintenance, it can sometimes experience episodes of poor air quality. An EPA report from 1989 suggests that improving indoor air quality can improve productivity by decreasing the number of sick days taken. It’s estimated that sick days induced by poor air quality cost the nation tens of billions of dollars a year.
So how can you ensure your office or workplace has good air quality? A good way to do so is by making sure your building’s HVAC and ventilation system gets regular maintenance. The HVAC system not only regulates temperature, but it also moves and filters the air in the building. If it’s not well-maintained, dust and other nastiness can form in there, spreading contaminants throughout the building. Getting regular inspections can go a long way to keeping your air fresh.
