Why Healthy IAQ Paves the Way for a Safe Return to School

Why Healthy IAQ Paves the Way for a Safe Return to School

Schools will primarily require the assistance of revolutionary air filtration systems which will be fundamental to ensure a safe return to school.


Opening windows has proven to be a simple and effective form of ventilation – something that every establishment considers for smooth operations. But Catherine Noakes, professor of environmental engineering for buildings at the University of Leeds, says that it is “probably the most viable short-term option”  for schools. This is especially true in a country like ours where opening windows hinders the process of learning due to noise and humidity. On the other hand, spending long hours within enclosed, crowded environments can take a toll on a student’s well-being. Besides that, microbiological pollutants like the virus continue to pose a threat to the children making their health vulnerable.

Focusing on the root cause - poor indoor air quality - can help with its mitigation. 

Clean, healthy air has become a necessity in light of the pandemic and poor IAQ causes illnesses in unseen ways. This is rightly pointed out by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America  who state that poor IAQ is a cause of concern for those with asthma and allergies since indoor triggers increase the risk of severe asthma attacks and allergic reactions. Other studies have also revealed that poor indoor air quality affects several aspects of a child’s development like verbal, motor, behavioural and perceptual disabilities.

This can be changed with robust air filtration solutions that take care of any IAQ related concerns in educational establishments – something that Spectrum Filtration can guarantee with its effective range of air purifiers.

Educational Institutions Need to Prioritize IAQ

Even as online education seems to be holding its own, it is not a sustainable model of education due to a variety of factors: lack of personal interaction, insufficient bandwidth, absence of a controlled, structured environment among several. 

Optimum learning tends to take place in the classroom and a return to school should be the way forward. But wearing a mask might not be sufficient. Schools will primarily require the assistance of revolutionary air filtration systems which will be fundamental to ensure a safe return to school.
