Exploring the Link Between Dust Control and Air Quality
When you are creating a pavement maintenance plan for your business, you should be sure to talk to your asphalt company about creating a dust control plan for your parking lot or driveway. Dust pollution is a major source of air contamination throughout every region of the country and especially in the desert. By taking steps to reduce dust around your property, you can improve the environmental impact of your company. Keep reading for a look at the link between dust control and air quality.
In the Phoenix area, dirt lots cause dust which contributes to the poor air quality. The metro Phoenix area rated as the fifth worst city in the United States for air quality in a 2017 study. There is already plenty of dirt and dust in Arizona, and dirt parking lots get stirred up every time someone drives on them. This causes dust almost constantly if people are coming and going, or all at once if your employees are all arriving and leaving at the same time of day.
Not only is this dust in the parking lot bad for our environment, it can also cause health problems for your employees and cause them to miss time at work. Dust is horrible for asthma and allergy sufferers, so why would you want them to suffer from it every morning they arrive at work or every evening when they leave?
If you hadn’t previously thought about converting your dirt lot into a paved one, you now have an obligation to your employees and the denizens of our fine city to do so. For more information or a quote on this type of project, contact the team at Cactus Asphalt .
