Building making you sick?

Can an office make you sick?

Dry eyes, scratchy throat, headaches, dizziness, fatigue . . . this combination of symptoms might make a person want to stay home from the office- especially if the office is in a "sick building." Although many of us think of air quality and air pollution as outdoor problems, they are becoming increasingly common in modern buildings.

According to the Environmental protection Agency, indoor air is typically 2-5 times and up to 100 times more polluted than outside air. The American Lung Association estimates most people spend 90% of their time indoors breathing ultra fine particles, germs and gases.

WellBeing Hygiene’s #1 mission is to prevent the spread of bacteria throughout facilities through our touch-free services suite. Viruses and bacteria, such as staphylococcus, E. coli, hepatitis A, the flu, and the common cold, prowl on bathroom surfaces like sanitary waste units, urinals, soap pumps and toilet seats. WellBeing Hygiene’s touch-free services keep employees and customers healthy. HealthCare Communication News states that “hand washing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of contagious disease when done correctly. It is important that we raise awareness about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Not only does hand washing in communities prevent the spread of contagious symptoms, such as colds, but also more serious diseases, such as hepatitis A and meningitis.”
