Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors in buildings where the air is mired with pathogens, pollutants, irritants, allergens, and noxious gases. In today’s rapidly urbanizing world, opening a window for good ventilation may not be sufficient due to poor outdoor air quality caused by pollution, climate change, wildfire smoke, and other factors. Furthermore, experts predict that another contagious disease event equal to or more devastating than Covid-19 pandemic has a 47% – 57% probability of occurrence in the next 25 years.

In schools, poor indoor air quality can lead to a variety of symptoms and conditions including “coughing, eye irritation, headaches, allergic reactions, asthma and/or other respiratory illnesses, and, in rare cases, life-threatening conditions such as Legionnaire’s disease or carbon monoxide poisoning (EPA).” Younger students are adversely affected and school boards can be impacted from extended absenteeism from students and staff.

With a society slowly redefining ‘normal’ after a world-changing event and the threat of another occurrence looming, the importance of creating safer, healthier, and more resilient school buildings is critical. By adopting indoor air quality (IAQ) improving technologies and practices, the risk and damage of disease can be limited while improving the wellbeing, health, and performance of building students, staff, and guests today.
