Our living walls can assist with Sick Building Syndrome. SBS can be attributed to inadequate ventilation, chemical contaminants from indoor or outdoor sources, as well as biological contaminants. Many volatile organic compounds, which are considered chemical contaminants like CFC’s from printers and other office devices, can cause acute effects on the occupants of a building. Bacteria, molds, and viruses are types of biological contaminants, and can all cause SBS.
In addition, pollution from outdoors such as motor vehicle exhaust, and general air pollution can contribute to SBS. Our Living Walls help counteract this by acting as a type of “Bio Filter” to catch these impurities and clean the air in the location of our walls leaving clients and employees a healthier work environment.
