Set foot into a fresh and healthy office space every day!


Offices and commercial spaces aren’t always known for their commitment to indoor air quality, but that doesn’t mean that you have to suffer. There are plenty of things you can do to be healthier and breath safe, clean air!


At Pionair, we have a variety of air purification units that are perfect for any sized office because we are committed to providing healthy air in the workplace. Tag along today as we explore the best ways to improve the indoor air quality of your office!

What is good indoor air quality anyway?


While there is no actual measurement that indicates what good indoor air quality is, it commonly features a comfortable temperature and ambient humidity, with the ability for fresh, outdoor air, and the control of airborne particulates. 


What causes poor indoor air quality in offices?


While there are many factors that affect indoor air quality, so major ones include:


  • Poor ventilation that lacks air movement and fresh air
  • A lack of maintenance on the HVAC
  • High humidity
  • Water damage and unchecked water leaks
  • Ongoing construction/remodeling

While most of the indoor air quality rests with the building owner, as an occupant of the building there are some simple solutions you can take. Let’s explore them below!


Keep your office tidy.


While this is a no-brainer, it’s important that you keep your desk/cubicle space clean as well. Typically, office buildings will have a cleaning company that comes in and does most of the cleaning, but they won’t clean your personal area. 


When you keep your own area clean, it keeps the space surrounding you clean and clutter-free. As a result, there is less dust and other air particles to breathe in. So, vacuum, sanitize, and remove the items you don’t need to create a healthier environment. 


Add some plant life!


Not only are plants alive and beautiful, but they also help naturally clean the air! Some of the best plants that promote indoor air quality include:


  • English Ivy
  • Chinese Evergreen
  • Peace Lily
  • Spider Plant
  • Sword Fern


Make your office look great while cleaning the air with plants!


Crack a window!


If you have the opportunity, open a window or prop open a door to let fresh air in and to increase the airflow! Office buildings are notorious for having stale and stagnant air, so this is the perfect remedy. And, if you can’t open a window, you can always put an oscillating fan in the corner or a small desk fan to help get things circulating!  


Invest in an air purifier!


Clean air is in your control with an air purifier! Not only can an air purifier give you healthy air, but it can improve the indoor air quality of the office! At Pionair, we have three different sizes that can accommodate every office size to filter the air through the power of UV light air purification. 


Improve the indoor air quality of your office today by keeping your area clean, adding plants, and allowing for fresh air to circulate!
