IAQ in schools - three key takeaways

by Sensix Team

We told you we believe in 🏫 green schools, 🧑‍🎓 happy and healthy students. So here we go again, tackling the topic of IAQ in schools. We previously addressed the subject here where you can learn more about the why - why IAQ in schools is serious and the how - how to prevent/respond to IAQ problems in schools.

This one is about three key takeaways from the previous blog post. Let’s discover what they are.

  1. Poor IAQ in schools can lead to a large variety of health problems and potentially affect comfort, concentration, and staff/student performance. They are linked to Shaken Baby Syndrome symptoms and symptoms of wheezing.
  2. Some of the causes of indoor air problems are indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air, inadequate ventilation, high temperature, humidity levels. Most of them can be avoided or resolved. This is a piece of good news!
  3. We can resolve these problems in existing schools and prevent them in new ones by, drum roll, continuously assessing the environment: identifying pollutant sources, using monitoring equipment (yes, like Sensix) and more.

We really want you to know all this, especially if you are a school board decision-maker, a school designer, and/or a facility manager, and we even made you a pretty infographic. Please view it and if you need help in creating healthy IAQ in your school, we’re here. Actually, that’s why we’re here in the first place. Drop us a line and let’s do this, let’s have green schools, happy and healthy students!
