Clean Air Day

This year, Clean Air Day takes place on June 17th. This will be the fifth annual Clean Air Day and once again, will be led by the environmental charity, Global Action Plan. As part of Clean Air Day, businesses around the UK are being encouraged to commit to a clean air action for the first time and here at Grease Gone, we want to help you commit to that clean action.

Our focus this year is on ensuring offices, restaurants and other commercial buildings have the cleanest air possible through ductwork and ventilation cleaning, to help avoid something known as Sick Building Syndrome.

What is Sick Building Syndrome?

Sick Building Syndrome, otherwise known as SBS, is the name given to a condition or illness that’s associated with being in a particular building or enclosed space. It’s predominantly linked with poor quality air within that enclosed space. Despite this syndrome becoming more widely known, poor air quality and subsequently sick building syndrome can still be found in around 30% of new and remodelled buildings, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

What Are Sick Building Syndrome Symptoms?

Sick Building Syndrome symptoms can occur in a variety of ways, affecting a plethora of areas on and within your body. Symptoms include but aren’t limited to:

  • Breathing trouble
  • Tight chest
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Chills

If you already suffer from respiratory problems and/or suffer with allergies such as hay fever, you may notice an increase in the severity of your usual symptoms as sick building syndrome can add to your pre-existing ailments.

How Can I Tell They’re Sick Building Syndrome Symptoms

While diagnosing sick building syndrome can be difficult due to symptoms often disguising themselves as other complaints, for instance the common cold, it’s worth noting that symptoms of sick building syndrome will improve soon after leaving that building. Those same symptoms will then usually return upon reentering the building. If you or your staff notice reoccurring symptoms, it may be worth investigating your building for sick building syndrome or better yet, treating it as such by taking steps to clean the air within your building.

There are a number of possible causes for sick building syndrome, one of which happens to be poor ventilation in buildings leading to poor air quality. That however, is where ourselves here at Grease Gone can help you take an actionable step toward clean air for your building. 

Avoid Sick Building Syndrome

Ventilation duct cleaning is nothing short of essential when it comes to maintaining a continuous supply of fresh air within your building. Not only does it ensure the well-being of your staff but also your customers too.

Here at Grease Gone, we firmly believe your fresh air ductwork systems are the lungs of your building and without regular cleaning, you simply cannot ensure clean fresh air throughout your building.

Our ventilation system cleaning will provide not only a healthy working environment but clean, fresh air with drastically lowered allergens and irritations. It will also aid in air distribution throughout your building too.
