Burlington, ON – August 25, 2022 – The way we clean buildings, facilities and spaces has changed over the last few years. In a recent article for Facility Cleaning & Maintenance magazine, David L. Smith, the Cleaning, Hygiene and Sanitation Director at Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene, delves into how the increased use of disinfectants affects the quality of indoor air, how pollutants affect our health and how, through air purification, we can continue to create safer and cleaner facilities.
David touches on how the increased use of disinfectants has also increased the amount of airborne chemicals polluting indoor air. Pollutants including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can cause minor to serious diseases depending on length of exposure. To combat indoor air pollutants, potential illness and absenteeism, David introduces a sustainable air purification technology solution.
Both passive and active air purification technology will help clear indoor pollutants and expel healthier air. Though, David warns it’s important to understand the types of purifiers and filters in order to choose the best solution for your facility. Multiple factors, including multi-step filtration systems and the amount of air that needs purification will affect which air purifier will be the most efficient in certain spaces.
