and carpets. These products are generally more expensive than traditional products, but the payoff comes through better air quality which leads to healthier employees and increased pro- ductivity. Many IAQ issues can be rectified through appropriate maintenance of the HVAC sys- tem, a thorough assessment of cleaning processes and in- vestment in quality, low-VOC building materials. If the issue is not easily resolved, it may be appropriate to have an outside firm conduct a comprehensive building investigation to assess the situation, identify the cause of the issue and implement the appropriate solution.

check the location of air supply vents, which should be as high as possible and away from exhaust vents and significant sources of outdoor pollution, such as dumpsters, parking areas and traffic stops on street corners. This is particularly im- portant for older buildings that may be affected by nearby new development or road construc- tion. If these considerations are beyond control, the building owner should install a filtration system to scrub the air. Cleaning of the facility is another important contribu- tor to good IAQ. Carpets and upholstered furniture should be deep cleaned on a regular basis. Cleaning crews should use vacuums with good filtering systems to avoid blowing dust and other contaminants back into the air. Cleaning products should be organic or emit low levels of chemical fumes. Building owners and manag- ers can also improve IAQ by choosing to invest in low-VOC products, such as paints, stains BETHLEHEM, PA — TD Bank has named Jack Darya- nani as VP in commercial lending in Bethlehem.
