you own a commercial building or an apartment building in New York
City, you realize how important good ventilation is. Poor ventilation
can cause “sick building syndrome”, which can drive out
your renters and bring in the health department.
building syndrome is a common problem; people in such a building will
suffer from vague symptoms or even become infected with a disease.
Top among the causes of sick building syndrome are the circulation of
infectious disease-bearing particles, such as from feces, saliva, and
vomit, throughout the building via the air ducts. In all cases, it is
the result of poor cleaning and maintenance, as well as construction
materials such as asbestos.
you may not be in control of what individual residents do inside
their units, you can maintain the entryway, hallways, ductwork, and
the HVAC system. These areas are where residents and visitors are
likely to pick up contaminants from the environment, leading to
illness. Avoiding the situation in the first place will prevent the
health department from interceding.
While maintaining a clean building is essential, improving air circulation can help too. Good air circulation discourages the growth of mold, and maintains a fresh, indoor environment. Roof-mounted centrifugal Pennbarry fans will work to circulate the air, as will wall-mounted centrifugal up-blast Pennbarry fans. While updating your air system can be costly, in the end, it’s worth it to prevent sick building syndrome.
