Cleaning Products at Your Office Could Be Triggering Health Issues
November 13, 2015
Studies have shown that workers exposed to cleaning chemicals can suffer from a wide range of medical conditions, including respiratory problems, eye irritation, skin rashes and burns, headaches and dizziness, nose bleeds, and even cancer. So it goes without saying that it’s wise to evaluate the products that are used to clean your work environment.
The Importance of Quality Air
Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stated that indoor air quality is a top five environmental risk to public health?
The EPA has found that 95% of chemical ingredients in household and commercial cleaners include cancer-causing chemicals such as formaldehyde, benzene derivatives, and more. The American Lung Association has cited studies that link chemicals in cleaning products to causing asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
Although manufacturers argue that chemicals in cleaning products are so minor that they aren’t harmful, several government agencies and non-profit organizations have conducted studies that show otherwise. Cleaning products have been known to cause acute, immediate or long-term health effects with repeated exposure at home or in work environments.
