The average employee spends as much as 1880 hours a year (over 21% of his/her time) in the office environment. It is therefore obvious that the indoor air quality at work has a major effect on the health and wellness of employees. In fact the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls indoor air quality one of the top five environmental health risks of our time. Researchers also found that the financial benefits of improving office climates (e.g. less absence due to illness) can be 8 to 17 times greater than the costs of making those improvements*.
Cleaner air is beneficial to a healthy office environment. DESSO AirMaster® captures harmful fine dust from the air more effectively than any other flooring solution.
