The Cost of Poor Indoor Air Quality

The Cost of Poor Indoor Air Quality

What affect can air quality have on a company? It could be more significant than you think!

Indoor air quality is one invisible factor that can boost or decrease your company’s success. Healthy indoor air is clean and well-circulated, but poor indoor air is stagnant and rife with particles of dust and debris. Some might think that indoor air quality only has a minimal impact on how a business functions, but the real cost can be beyond what a building manager might see. Here is the real cost of poor indoor air quality and how Lord Baltimore Uniform Rental can help keep your air clean.


Employee health is the top concern in any business. Your employees’ well being should naturally come before cutting costs on air quality services. A commercial building with poor dust control can cause Sick Building Syndrome, a type of sickness induced by dwelling in a specific environment. It could come in different forms, but common ailments would include headache, respiratory problems, congestion, and difficulty concentrating.


A downturn in your employees’ health would lead to a decline in productivity. Staff would take more frequent sick days, become slower, and produce lower-quality work. The financial cost of poor indoor air quality is most keenly felt here: the result could be a loss of thousands if not millions of dollars to an individual business per year. Improving indoor air quality can boost financial growth by significant percentages.


One potential cost that could stem from poor employee health is a lawsuit. If you are responsible for your employee’s illness and inability to keep a living, you may be charged for the damages. This type of cost is vast and one well worth preventing.

Energy Efficiency

Your building’s health can suffer from poor indoor air quality too. Built-up dust, dirt, and stains can cause the building’s HVAC system to work harder than it has to and thus wear out faster, costing you more for maintenance, repairs, and replacement. The building materials themselves can also wear down if not kept clean. 

Our Services Can Help!

Dust control and floor cleaning are two ways to keep dust and dirt at bay.
