If indoor air quality (IAQ) wasn’t on our minds before the pandemic, it is now. We have a heightened awareness of the factors that contribute to the spread of airborne diseases, such as COVID-19. Looking ahead to the health and wellness trends in homes and offices, it is clear that we cannot ignore the invisible. The quality of the air we breathe not only affects virus transmission, but can also pose both short- and long-term health risks if not monitored.
In fact, a recent survey by Honeywell found that 72% of office workers are concerned about the air quality in their buildings. They want regular updates on the quality of their building’s air. Some of those people would even consider leaving their job if their employer doesn’t take steps to create a healthier indoor environment. While this should come at no surprise since employees are reexamining where they want to live and work, it is eye-opening for leaders. The status quo will not do. There is an urgent call for investing in clean indoor air today.
