Fitness Centres and health spas often feature special features such as massage chairs and tanning booths. Spray tans are quite popular with customers because they efficiently and inexpensively yield the desired results. Unfortunately, the fumes and particles emitted from spray tanning booths can be harmful when the area is not properly ventilated.
Employees and customers confined to these small spaces with poor air quality have a higher propensity of developing respiratory infections and other ailments. Employers and property owners can protect their staff and clientele by gathering data from clean building pioneers and making a few small adjustments.
Evaluating the ventilation system is the first step to cleaner air in any industrial or commercial property. Even simple upgrades can make a big difference in the overall air quality. Tanning salons and spray tanning booths are often established in relatively small quarters, so owners often have to be creative when determining how to create a cleaner and more secure atmosphere. In addition to HVAC system renovations, business owners and property managers can also implement more practical and mobile solutions to increase airflow.
Air extraction systems work in much the same way as room deodorisers and ionisers in that they break down air particles and remove pollutants. The filters are an effective way to reduce potentially harmful air particles and they can be used in small spaces because compact models take up very little room. Fume extraction units are available in a variety of different sizes. The largest options can be built into existing HVAC systems and the smallest models can actually be designed to fit inside or next to tanning booths. Each unit is subject to local and federal regulations and some require permits or other approval before installation.
Commercial indoor air quality is a major concern for Occupational Health and Safety experts. In addition to the potential eye irritants and respiratory problems, poor air quality reduces productivity and poses a risk to visitors, employees, and customers. Achieving and maintaining appropriate levels of air quality standards ensures that everyone who enters the building will experience healthy and expertly filtered clean air. Business owners have a general responsibility to perform their due diligence and determine the overall condition of the air within their facilities.
