Cleaning For Health

Indoor Air Quality

At HEALTHY HOME CLEANING SYSTEM, we stay current with new technology to provide our customers and their employees with a clean & healthy work environment. The days of the mop bucket, upright vacuum, spray bottles & rags are gone.

Today when you peak into the janitorial closet, you are likely to see mop pads rather than string mops, microfiber cloths instead of old t-shirts, and vacuums that resemble a mini-rocket. All of these changes work together to improve the indoor air quality of commercial buildings.

These advances have produced higher quality and faster cleaning, but they also effect much more. Research has shown that the air quality inside our buildings is responsible for more illness than the outdoor air pollution. In addition, several research studies have linked employee attendance directly to the indoor air quality.

There are a number of contributing factors to the quality of indoor air, one of which is the type of vacuum cleaner used. At HEALTHY HOME CLEANING SYSTEM, we use the powerful ProTeam backpack vacuums with 4-level, HEPA high filtration.

Some of the benefits of the HEPA vacuum include:

  • Improved indoor air quality: This HEPA system removes 99.97% of dirt and allergens .3 micron or larger from flooring and surfaces.

  • Reduced allergy symptoms: This can help to improve indoor air quality and reduce the risk of allergies and asthma. Plus, HEPA vacuums can help to reduce the risk of infection by removing bacteria and viruses from the air.

  • Cleaner building: HEPA vacuums also remove more dirt and dust from your building than traditional vacuums. Additionally, the ProTeam backpack vacuum allows for improved productivity and effectiveness which allows for a substantial savings that we pass on to our customers.

There are also a number of other things that improve indoor air quality in a commercial building:

  • Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces: This includes high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, and countertops.

  • Ventilate the building regularly: This can be done by opening windows and doors, or by using an air purifier.

  • Add Plants: There are numerous indoor plants that are great for cleaning the air of off-gases and increasing oxygen levels.

  • Remove clutter: Clutter can harbor dust and allergens.

  • Moisturize the air: Dry air can irritate the airways.

  • Avoid smoke: Smoking can create a lot of harmful pollutants in the air. Move your outdoor smoking area away from the entrance doors.

By working together, we can improve the indoor air quality and create a healthier and more comfortable work environment for everyone in your commercial building.
