Indoor air quality in healthcare
Indoor air is up to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air, contributing to the development of asthma and allergies. Maintaining good indoor air quality can improve the quality of life for patients and medical staff, who spend the majority of their time inside. Nurses and housekeeping staff are particularly affected by occupational asthma that is mostly present in medical settings due to the use of harmful chemicals found in cleaning and maintenance products.
That’s why our flooring solutions have minimal impact on air quality.
