Over time the air inside buildings can become stale, humid and oxygen starved leading to a reduction in productivity and in severe cases can aggravate cardiac and respiratory illnesses.
In Queensland we are particularly prone to mould problems which can be exacerbated by a condensation build-up, resulting from a lack of adequate ventilation. Mould spores can cause/ aggravate a variety of health issues such as allergic reactions and respiratory problems.
Occupied spaces also run a higher risk of indoor pollutants if not properly ventilated. Humans produce CO2 through the metabolic and biochemical processes of our bodies; concerns have been raised about the consumption of an increased amount of CO2 which builds throughout the day in occupied spaces such as offices and schools. High levels of CO2 have been shown to decrease a person’s cognitive ability and increase headaches along with other potential health issues.
A simple solution is to ensure that the building always has optimal air exchange and a healthy indoor climate.
