Air purifiers are little more than a temporary fix for indoor air quality issues. Sure the air might smell better but the source of the smell is still there and it could be dangerous.
There are some basic steps you can take yourself to help improve indoor air quality. If these are unsuccessful I would suggest you call a professional contractor. Make sure they have the credentials showing they understand and can provide a sensible approach to correcting your specific IAQ issues.
Eliminate the Pollutant Source
Over the years we have seen some surprising sources of indoor air quality issues. One company had a room-sized air handling unit that services the front offices of a large manufacturing facility. The janitor, who also provided lawn care decided the air handling unit was a good place to store his lawn mower and gas can.
Needless to say the smell filled the front offices on a daily basis. The good news; the fix was cheap and easy.
You are look for anything that is leaking, dripping, oily, greasy, bent, broken or just plain dirty.
Look in the obvious places first. Like in your duct-work, the filter sections of your equipment. Anything that looks out of place probably is out of place.
You can be 100%, absolutely double sure that; if the item you are looking at is doing any of the things listed above, the manufacturer did not ship it that way and it was not installed that way. There must be a problem that needs fixing.
Dilute the Source with Increased Ventilation
You may find the source of your IAQ issue is actually part of your manufacturing process. In this case it may not be feasible to remove the source. That does not mean you should give up.
You may be able to reduce the effects of the pollutant by increasing the amount of fresh air you add to the flow.
You may be able to pass the polluted air through special filters designed to deal with the type of pollution you facing. If the problem is a smell only and not dangerous you may be able to use charcoal activated filters to help reduce the smell.
If the problem is more than just a smell you will need to take more aggressive steps for increased ventilation to have any impact.
Even the introduction of fresh air may not be enough to reduce the danger of some pollutants.
