Avoid Sick Building Syndrome with Carpet Maintenance

Sick Building Syndrome is when staff in your building experience health issues that are related to time spent in your building. According to Michael A. Berry, Ph.D., former Deputy Director at the EPA, the single leading cause of poor indoor air quality in built environments today is poor maintenance.

Studies show that improved air quality can produce higher worker productivity and health by reducing headaches, eye strain, allergies, stress, fatigue, and the spread of sickness.

One of the best ways to improve air quality is through regular vacuuming and carpet care. Carpets can harbor dust, dirt, and oils and improper maintenance may not only fail to remove these, but may also attack more dirt.
