An air filtration system is important when chemical fumes are present

I work at a pilates studio that is in the same building as a brand new micro brewery that is currently undergoing construction.

I’m excited for the brewery to open, but man has the construction process with them been a nightmare.

Every few weeks they do something unexpected that impacts us and shifts the way we run classes and have clients throughout the day. This last nightmare had chemical fumes leaking into our studio, and I really feel like our air filtration was the only thing that saved us. The air conditioner ran on high to combat those fumes. I’m not sure the extent of how an air filter would stand up against fumes like that, but I do feel like the smell would have been worse and more nauseating if we hadn’t had them. I’m so thankful that we just had an appointment with the air conditioning company who replaced all of our air filters for us. The filters are located too far up into the ceiling for us to get to on an average ladder. The air filters were likely able to filter the more dense molecules that made up the chemical fume, and I think the small molecules are the ones that got through and caused the nauseating smell. I’m not sure if there is a particular air purification system that would filter something like that, but apparently I may need to look into it if the construction is going to keep this up. I would hope that they would have a little consideration and give us a heads up considering we are going to be neighbors soon.
