Here’s a fact: indoor air quality (IAQ) is often a lot worse than outdoor air. It can impact your health, comfort, and even productivity at work. Now more than ever, office managers should consider the improvement of IAQ as part of their priorities.
By definition, bad IAQ means that the air is contaminated with viruses, bacteria, debris, dirt, dust, pollen, odours, and other pollutants. But since these pollutants are invisible to the naked eye, it could be hard to tell if the IAQ in your workplace is good or bad. Read on to know the tell-tale signs and symptoms of terrible air quality.
Signs that the office has air quality issues:
- Excessive dust
- Mould growth
- Weird smells
- Uneven temperatures
Physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality:
- Allergic episodes and watery eyes
- Frequent coughing, chest congestion, or respiratory issues
- Lingering headaches
- Fatigue or dizziness
- Shortness of breath
- Dryness or irritation of the skin, nose, eyes, and throat
