Returning to Work: How Lowe Can Make Your Building Safer
The COVID-19 pandemic led to new standards being implemented to keep businesses safe. Before your employees return to work, take steps to help prevent the spread of illness. Lowe Mechanical Services Ltd. can help. Here’s what you should know about our state-of-the-art solutions for reducing virus transmission in commercial and industrial buildings.
Indoor Air Quality
Unfiltered indoor air can harbour mould, bacteria, dust, dander and other contaminants that may cause people to get sick or aggravate their allergy symptoms.
Lowe installs air filtration and purification systems and provides a range of other solutions for improving indoor air quality, including:
- Inspection of your HVAC system to ensure that it meets air quality standards
- Professional duct cleaning to reduce levels of dust and allergens in the air
- Installation of dust collectors to remove dust and other airborne contaminants
- Preventive maintenance programs to keep your HVAC system working optimally year-round
- Air quality testing to ensure that your staff and clients are breathing healthy air
- Installation of humidifiers and dehumidifiers to regulate humidity, which is an important factor in indoor air quality
Lowe has partnered with Global Plasma Solutions to offer needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) products. NPBI technology purifies the air by eliminating airborne dust, mould, pollutants, allergens, bacteria and viruses (read more about NPBI technology by clicking here).
We can also review your existing HVAC system to determine which filter would be most effective at removing dust, allergens and contaminants and whether your system supports a high-efficiency particulate air (MERV or HEPA) filter. These filter options provide superior air filtration, but not all systems are able to support a MERV or HEPA filter. A professional inspection is therefore highly recommended before installation to avoid potential costly damage to your system.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses and facilities are now recognizing the advantage of having automatic doors, faucets, toilets and light switches. These are all high-touch surfaces that can act as carriers and transmitters of viruses. When doors, lights and plumbing fixtures are automated with motion sensors, these high-touch surfaces become no-touch surfaces, which goes a long way in preventing virus transmission.
Lowe provides automation solutions for doors, electrical fixtures and plumbing fixtures. We also install building control systems designed to optimize your building’s energy efficiency.
