In an era of airborne illnesses like COVID-19, IAQ is more important than ever in facility asset management. As businesses begin to bring employees back into their facilities, it is more important than ever to work diligently to keep those employees safe from airborne illnesses. Most businesses need a strategic plan for IAQ, and OSHA has created an extensive report detailing how to develop this for your individual space.
In order to understand the different aspects related to IAQ and its best practices, the EPA has created an Indoor Air Quality Guide which can help facility managers build strategies for achieving critical IAQ objectives. One of the best ways property and facility managers can engage in the health of employees working inside their building is by creating necessary practices to maintain a safe IAQ environment.
One of the first things a facility manager can do to engage in improved facility health is to assess their indoor air quality. This Guide for Building Owners and Facility Managers put out by the EPA and NIOSH is a great place to start. It explains factors affecting indoor air quality, preventative maintenance for IAQ, and how to develop an IAQ profile for your particular space.
Eventually, you might need to find someone to assess your particular current IAQ. Many times, this is merely making sure that HVAC systems are working properly and at optimum levels. It is important to confirm that this foundational equipment is functioning properly before adding in other IAQ strategies. Assessments can come in many different forms with the goal of giving you a more detailed understanding of your air quality.
When there’s a limited amount of air exchange in a building, contaminants can build up. Engaging in a post-COVID-19 era means that your current cleaning strategy needs to involve new or modified ventilation systems while also implementing regular, thorough office cleaning services.
One of the ways that IAQ issues can be solved is through hiring an office cleaning company that will routinely clean office spaces and common areas. Having a janitorial cleaning company supports a well-developed building IAQ operation and maintenance plan.
