Offices are often great places for collaboration and productivity, but this environment also has its fair share of toxins, allergens, and dust that gets circulated. All of this leads to poor air quality which can adversely effect everyone if not tended to.
These effects aren’t just limited to the air everyone breathes. Poor air quality can increase the amount employees get sick, and can even effect morale. Here are five simple tips for keeping the air quality high at your office.
