Commercial buildings today are designed to be more and more airtight. This is to help insulate the building against unwanted temperature changes. Though this is effective in improving climate control, it, unfortunately, cuts the building off from fresh air. This has a negative impact on the indoor air quality of the building, which can cause substantial adverse effects on the health of the people inside.
Fortunately, there are a number of ways that you can address poor indoor air quality in your building.

There are all sorts of common contaminants found inside a building’s air. Dust, pollen, mites, dander, mold spores, and germs are all quite common. Some of these are simple lung irritants, which will make you cough or sneeze if inhaled. Some are allergens, which will cause allergy attacks in those who are susceptible to them. Others are infectious agents, which can cause illness in those they infect. None of them are all that healthy to breathe in.
Humidity is another common indoor air quality problem. If the humidity level in your building is too high, it can promote mold growth and make it difficult for your body to regulate its temperature. If humidity is too low, it can weaken your body’s defenses against disease.
Air purifiers are devices designed to remove contaminants from the air in your building. There are a wide variety of different types. Some of the most common are:
