Bringing healthy IAQ to Classrooms
Indoor air quality in classrooms is of utmost importance as it can directly impact the health and well-being of students and teachers. Poor air quality can lead to several health issues such as headaches, allergies, asthma, fatigue, and even reduced cognitive function, which can affect academic performance. In addition, indoor air quality is particularly important in classrooms as students and teachers spend a significant amount of time indoors, often in poorly ventilated spaces. By ensuring good indoor air quality in classrooms, we can help create a safe and healthy environment for our children to learn and thrive.
