Use air cleaner to improve the room climate

Health risk printers and copiers? Are the practical helpers in the office office now losing their reputation? Not quite. However, they do not have a positive effect on our health. The reason for this is, among other things, that they produce fine dust. The more frequently they are used - and the frequent use of printers and other technical devices is no question in the office - the more fine dust they produce.

Fine dust is a topic that most locates in road traffic, but not at the desk in the office. Tiny small particles of particulate matter, however, can not be absolutely dangerous to our health, they occur in too much concentration in the air, which we inhale. If this is the case, they get into our respiratory tracts and can even get stuck in our lungs. We do not even notice them because they can also have a size that is ten times smaller than the thickness of a hair. Respiratory tract diseases to allergic asthma may result.

Finally breathe in the office

In fact, there is a remedy for too much fine dust in the workplace, eg in the form of office equipment that has an integrated fine dust filter. The Dahle brand was the pioneer with the Clean TEC shredder. But what can I do, is no filter integrated in my equipment in the office? Even then there is a solution!

Dahle has developed the filter in the shredder. The result was the DAHLE nanoCLEAN air purifier, a very compact device with very high filter performance. The air purifier can easily be placed directly at the point of origin of the fine dust and ensures that the impurities are not distributed in the room at all. In addition to particulate matter, it also cleans the air from other, disturbing particles that are just causing people with allergies or asthma to create: pollen, bacteria, mold spores, mites or animal hairs - they are all not protected from it.

The Dahle air purifier is particularly suitable for the office thanks to its special filter capacity. "It is even the only device on the market that also filters nanoparticles under 10 nanometers," says Harald von Schischka, expert for filters at Freudenberg Filtration Systems, the renowned manufacturer of the DAHLE nanoCLEAN filter. "The filter in the Dahle air purifier has three layers and works with five techniques. He is so far surpassing current HEPA standards. In an adapted form, the filter is also used in air-conditioning systems of well-known automarks. "

In addition to its filter, the "Kraftzwerg" also has other arguments that speak for it: it is very compact and very light. Many air purifiers have a size of up to one meter and weigh five kilos. The DAHLE nanoCLEAN, however, fits into a shoe box. It weighs less than a kilo and can easily be taken and placed anywhere in the office where it is needed. Dahle also emphasizes sustainability: If the filter is "used up" after 680 to 800 hours of use, it can be exchanged and completely recycled with a few hands.

Information & tips on keeping things clean and organized

Moment ... I had written somewhere already a great idea for the Texteinstieg. Where is the note? Definitely in one of the many piles on my desk. The should I anyway go through and sort, much can be determined away. This will be a while now, I am afraid. But before I start, I'll introduce you to Brigitte Borchers. She is an expert for structured cleaning, mucking, arranging and optimizing at the workplace. And has a few basic tips available, which I should probably take better times.

The topic of cleaning up is an early occurrence in our lives. They are usually the parents who ask for it. Sometimes even underlined by arguments such as "Then you'll find everything better again!" Or "Here you can not get through otherwise!". In protest, on the other hand, many people later cultivate the so-called "creative chaos" on their desk. In school and university, you might get through with it. But in the workplace, especially in office situations, this should be the end. For here it is usually the superiors and bosses, which demand more order. And with responses like "Yes, I'll do tomorrow ..." strangely quite uncomprehending.

But where to begin? And how to bring in system? What is the right solution for me? And what do I have to do in principle, so that not every chaotic chaos reigns?

So that you do not already fail on such questions, there are clean-up professionals like Brigitte Borchers [Link 1]. Under the slogan "RaumStruktur", she offers individual advice on cleanup and restructuring processes, which she also actively accompanies personally, ranging from A to "muck out & create atmosphere" to Z as "free from stuff" "I support and accompany people on the way to greater clarity and a new feeling in their work and home." High time to ask them about the topic!

Mrs. Borchers, why should I keep order at all? Is not that just more work?
Brigitte Borchers: The cleaning up first of all. But the liberated feeling after that is unbeatable: finally, space on the desk, in the closet or on the floor - and thus again more clarity for upcoming projects.

How do specific tips for "beginner beginners" look? How and with what should one begin?
Brigitte Borchers: The magic formula is: Do not make too much at once! The paper-mounds have not been created by tomorrow. Take a look at a topic area and start small: a drawer, a shelf, a certain completed project and sort it. What can get away, what needs urgently to be kept? And maybe you'll discover even small leftover ...

What is the biggest hurdle in cleaning up?
Brigitte Borchers: Begin.

Which storage and archiving principles are recommended?
Brigitte Borchers: One possibility is to work with colors. For example, each customer or supplier is assigned their own color - and the folders and brochures are selected. The books can also be sorted according to the size of the color.

And how can I make it happen that in a week not everything sinks again in chaos?
Brigitte Borchers: Clear things you have done and use them IMMEDIATELY. Follow the good two-minute rule of David Allen: Complete everything that takes less than two minutes. Talk to the colleague or throw him into the trash can. You do not have to keep every step of your work within a project. At the end of a working day, prepare the workplace for the next day: the finished one comes into its place - and the current project folders are ready for a relaxed start to the next working day.

Thank you, Brigitte Borchers! The interview has already helped me very much. The stacks on my desk are checked, mocked, sorted, stapled and placed in folders. Of course with the staplers and punches of Novus, so everything goes smoothly and fast. And thanks to the "flat clinch" stitching process, the large stacks fit into just a few folders [Link 4]. Only the idea for the text climb I unfortunately did not find again - but I will certainly never happen again.
