While we welcome autumn as a relief from the heat of the hot Australian summer, for many autumn can mean the onset of allergies. As allergies can have a significant impact on the health and productivity or your staff, it is important to keep an allergen-free workplace during the cooler months.
Some tips for keeping your business or retail premises allergen free include:
Dust has lots of potent allergens that trigger allergic reactions. Dust mites - the waste of which makes up most of the allergic component of dust, can cause sneezing, coughing and itchy, watery eyes. There are many surfaces that may contain dust mites, including cubicle walls, carpets, and furniture.
Moisture can cause dust mites and mould to spread. Check for moisture around doorways and windows. Ensure you clean up any water leaks or spills.
Autumn is the perfect time to give those carpets a deep clean to remove any allergens which may be lurking in preparation for the coming colder months.
Mould spores are released in Autumn, circulating in the air as decaying leaves fall to the ground. High mould count contributes to breathing problems for those with asthma. To reduce the effect of allergy to mould, it is recommended to clear any fallen leaves as soon as possible.
Maintaining a clean and allergen free workplace is essential for all businesses, to ensure a healthy environment for staff and clients.
