Workplace Preparation Returning After COVID-19

Many businesses are struggling to identify a safe, clean and intelligent process for building reopening. The global pandemic has led to a drastic shift in the way we perceive our buildings’ health and safety, and there are many pivotal activities to consider. At qlair, we’ve teamed up with an industry leader in cleaning and disinfectant – Spiffy – to create a simple, end-to-end solution for a safe building reopening.

DISINFECTION + PROTECTION
Health authority guidelines set forth by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend intensifying cleaning and disinfecting practices prior to reopening.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY
The American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has released statements contending the airborne transmission of COVID-19 is sufficiently likely to warrant changes to building operations. Adjustments to your ventilation and filtration efforts can reduce the airborne concentration of diseases.

Guidelines for Building Reopening

Agencies like the Center of Disease Control and Prevention  (CDC) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have set guidelines and best practices for a safe building reopening. Using these recommendations in conjunction with current research conducted by the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, the National Library of Medicine, and more, we have highlighted key factors to be addressed prior to reopening.

BUILDING CLEANING AND DISINFECTANT
The CDC recommends regular cleaning and disinfecting of high touch spaces. This process allows you to kill germs and further lower the risk of disease spread throughout your building. Once a proper baseline has been established, routine cleanings are necessary for continuous safety. Using monitoring solutions to track cleaning schedules can also be effective.

FILTRATION AND VENTILATION
ASHRAE has contended that the transmission of “SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled.” Changes to building operations, including filtration and ventilation efforts, can reduce the risk of airborne exposures. Recommendations include filtration upgrades, increased ventilation, and air purifying techniques.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY
The Harvard School of Public Health has conducted research as current as May, 2020 on the relationship between air pollution and COVID-19 mortality. Their research concludes that a small increase in long-term exposure to PM2.5 leads to a large increase in the COVID-19 death rate. Monitoring your indoor air allows you to track harmful pollutants, and track the performance of your HVAC system as a whole.
