Why You Should Prioritize Indoor Air Quality This Back-to-School Season

By Lindsey Haglage, Vice President of Business Development for Protect|ED

As summer slowly comes to an end and back-to-school approaches, we find ourselves transitioning from countless outdoor adventures to spending more time indoors, where we know the air is 5-10 more contaminated.

While we prepare for the academic year ahead, it’s essential to not overlook the significance of indoor air quality. When clean air is compromised, students can experience difficulties concentrating which leads to reduced learning outcomes. Furthermore, poor air quality can exacerbate respiratory conditions, leading to increased absenteeism and impacting students’ overall educational experience.

Indoor air quality not only affects students, but also teachers and school staff. Poor air quality can cause discomfort and health issues among educators, hindering their ability to teach effectively. Conversely, a providing a healthy environment promotes productivity, job satisfaction and a positive atmosphere in the school community. 

As we transition from the hazy days of summer to the back-to-school season, clean air classrooms should be a top priority for any district. Thankfully, NanoStike™  provides the fresh, clean air students and staff deserve as they head back to school.
