Static electricity is generated by friction between surfaces, such as when walking across a carpet. This is made worse in modern buildings by heating and air conditioning systems which result in a dryer environment. Simply walking across a carpeted area can generate a charge.
As well as being annoying (everybody has occasionally seen a spark fly when they touch a metal object) static has been attributed to cause serious damage to sensitive electronic equipment, including computers. Hence offices with relatively large numbers of employees working on computers and other sensitive electronic equipment are particularly vulnerable.
Anti-Static carpet treatments can be an economical solution to alleviating the problem.
