Improve the Indoor Air Quality at Your Business

With wildfires running rampant across the country, air quality and the surrounding areas has never been worse! Unfortunately, this also means that indoor air quality (IAQ) is also lower than usual. 

If you run a business, it’s important to know what to do to help your indoor air quality during wildfires. Here are a few steps you can take to improve the indoor air quality for your businesses. 

Make Sure Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors are Working

Smoke can contain all sorts of gases that you don’t want your employees, clients, or customers to breathe while at your place of business. Chief among these is carbon monoxide.

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to make sure that this gas is not negatively influencing your indoor air quality. You should already have carbon monoxide detectors at your business. Test them regularly to make sure they are working to monitor your indoor air quality during wildfires. 

Upgrade Your Air Filters

Upgrade the level of filtration that your HVAC system offers. This is one step toward improved indoor air quality for businesses that can make a huge difference. Talk to your building maintenance staff to make sure they are using an air filter with a high MERV rating. If the system can’t handle those filters, talk to your landlord about getting a new system. 

Purchase Air Purifiers

Air purifiers offer a straightforward way to improve the indoor air quality where you work. You can purchase one that will clean all the air in the system, or you can buy them for individual rooms and areas. Make sure that you have enough purification power to clean all of the air in your business and that your purifiers will remove the contaminants that most concern you. 

Watch the Weather

If the smoke blows away from you for a while or you experience rain or snow, take advantage of it and open your doors and windows. While you don’t want to freeze everyone out, this offers you a chance to flush out some of the stale air in your building and get fresh, clean air to breathe instead. It will improve your IAQ and may make everyone feel just a little better about the situation, too.

How to Clean Your Air Conditioner

Did you know that you can do some basic cleaning on your own air conditioner? This can help improve its overall functioning so you pay less for energy and do your best for the planet. Here’s what you need to know. 

Vacuum the Coils

Remove the outside casing of your air conditioner. Wearing gloves, gently brush off or remove large chunks of debris that are stuck inside your A/C unit. You can also gently vacuum the coils. 

Use A/C Cleaner

Spray on an A/C coil cleaner (you can get these at your local hardware store) and leave it on for the time specified on the back of the can. This is usually 10-25 minutes. 

When the time is up, gently vacuum your condenser coils again. The cleaner will bond to dust and debris to make it easier for your vacuum to suck it out. When you’re done, comb your coils with a coil comb to make sure they are working effectively. 

Change Your Filter!

We have said it before and we will say it again! Changing your filter regularly is the number one thing that you can do to keep your air conditioner running well. Make sure that you’re getting the most out of your unit every day by changing your filter on a schedule.

If you don’t want to mess with cleaning your air conditioner yourself, we don’t blame you! Call us at One Source Home Service today and we’ll get an A/C pro to clean it out for you soon.
