Disease Prevention

IAQ healthy buildingWhat have we learned from COVID-19?  We were unprepared for a fast-moving epidemic.  COVID-19 was the seventh coronavirus to impact our lives.  We can expect new versions of the coronavirus to happen every year in addition to the cold and flu season.  

Infectious diseases cause losses in ways you cannot get back.  The lesson should be "Never again!"  

FIVE WAY SANITIZING is a monthly service that provides five important benefits.  Sanitizing is frankly not enough to truly protect your employees, students, customers, or patients.  There are more threats than the latest infection going around.

EPA CONCERNS FOR BUILDINGS

  • Sick Building SyndromeAmericans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.
  • People who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution (e.g., the very young, older adults, people with cardiovascular or respiratory disease) tend to spend even more time indoors.
  • Indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent decades due to such factors as energy-efficient building construction (when it lacks sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchange) and increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners.

70% of public buildings are toxic or semi-toxic causing thousands to suffer fatigue and daily headaches.  Poor indoor air quality also opens the door to multiple diseases and premature deaths.  Even worse, those with chemical sensitivities, respiratory disease, allergies, and chronic illnesses will suffer more severely than other, healthy people.

Many sanitizing service actually add unfriendly chemicals that may kill the pathogens, but poisons the building.  If the building is toxic, the people spending time in the building are going to suffer in small ways today and large way later in life.
