4 Ways to Improve Commercial Indoor Air Quality


Were you aware that indoor air can actually be more polluted than the air outdoors? This isn’t just true for homes throughout Whittier and beyond, but businesses and commercial spaces, as well. There are a number of allergens and pollutants that travel through the air, and without the right commercial IAQ products in place, it could be unhealthy and uncomfortable for employees, tenants, customers, etc.

Fortunately, we provide a number of solutions to your indoor air quality needs here at Greenleaf. You may find one of them to be the solution you need or you could discover you need some combination of them. Read on to learn about four specific ways you can improve the commercial indoor air quality of your property!

Duct Cleaning

In the average 6-room home, air ducts can collect 40 pounds of dust over the course of a year, built-up from dirt, skin flakes, pet dander, and more. Can you imagine how much the ductwork in a commercial space can gather in comparison? This is especially pertinent if the nature of your business is in food services or manufacturing.

Professional commercial duct cleaning can eliminate the following problems this brings:

  • Airflow resistance increasing energy consumption and costs.
  • Pollutants present in the air within your commercial space, where they can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms.
  • Increased wear and tear on your commercial HVAC systems.

Air Filters and Air Cleaners

Depending on the nature of your business or commercial space, you may already have regulations in place for what types of air filters and air cleaners should be installed into your HVAC systems’ ductwork. We have the products that will help you stay compliant, healthy, and comfortable.

High MERV air filters will block far more contaminants and allergens than a standard HVAC air filter—in fact, the standard HVAC air filter isn’t even there for your indoor air quality, it’s there to protect the HVAC system itself.

UV Air Purifiers

Commercial UV air purifiers are ideal for eliminating bacteria, mold, and even viruses from the ductwork of your commercial HVAC systems. While other types of air purifiers draw contaminants from the air and into their mesh material, UV air purifiers kill microorganisms before they even have the chance to reach the indoor air.

Humidity Control

Did you know that the ideal relative humidity level in any given indoor environment is between 30-50%? Anything above this range is considered too humid while anything below it is too dry.

Unbalanced humidity is more than just uncomfortable. It can lead to problems like decreased immunity and increased illnesses throughout your commercial space, damaged property due to too much or too little moisture, and dry air can even fry electrical components if the problem is severe enough.
