It is well known that commercial filters lower the risk of diseases to both animals and humans in industrial animal-growing industries. They can also lower the risk of airborne contaminants in any commercial environment when kept clean.
In addition to checking commercial filters, you should also check the overall condition of the HVAC rooms where your equipment is stored. Damp or dirty spaces can create an environment for bacteria and mold to breed.
The National Air Filtration Association shared a presentation on its website which offers good background information and suggestions for building maintenance personnel managing commercial buildings. Among the ideas presented, they suggest increasing building air filtration efficiencies to the maximum the system will allow =>MERV 13 (Contact Twin City Filter Service); and using molecular filtration when appropriate (if needed to remove gaseous contaminants).
Cleaner air inside commercial buildings can lead to better health among workers, which in turn can lead to higher productivity. By spending a few more dollars on changing commercial filters, you can have happier, healthier tenants in your buildings. And happy tenants translate into stable income for your business.
