It is that time of year again, new notebooks, fresh pencils, the sound of the first bell back to school! Here at Purely Green Environmental, we care about your child’s safety and well-being. You should ask yourself, “How do I know what is in the air my child is breathing?” The only way to be sure about air quality in your child care facility is to have indoor air quality testing in Massachusetts done by a professional! However, there are some steps you can take to improve your child’s or student’s educational facility.
The most common cause of poor indoor air quality is lack of poor ventilation! Without enough ventilation, pollution stays inside the building and builds up to create poor indoor air quality. Ask yourself, “is the thermostat set properly?” or “Is the air flowing into the rooms?” If the room is not receiving enough fresh air then the old air could become stagnant. This could lead to decreased oxygen levels and can make you very tired. Also, a strong smell could trigger a respiratory problem or an asthma to flare up, which might indicate that there is an air movement problem.
What is in the air?
Common items such as permanent markers, glue, air fresheners, aerosol can sprays, and strong perfumes can create fumes that may be environmental health risks for students. Finding all natural substitutes will be a safe path to take! It is important for a parent and an educator to read all labels carefully before purchase in order to choose the product with the least amount of pollutants.
