Clean Air for Nurseries, Playschool and Kindergarten
One of the most urgent problems caused by air pollution is the lifelong health impacts it may have on young children. While other aspects of a child’s environment may be carefully monitored, but air quality is difficult to control. The Radic8 team are passionate about innovating and distributing the very best technology to create safe and healthy environments for children to learn and grow.
The Importance of Clean Air for Young Children
Leaving a child in kindergarten can be an anxious time for parents, and the staff must do their best to reassure them it is a safe environment where the child will be safe. Unfortunately, there are a host of indoor air problems that can have an impact on the health of children.
For convenience, many nurseries globally are situated adjacent to busy roads carrying thousands of vehicles a day. The pollutants produced include nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter, which can build to dangerously high concentrations in local buildings. Prolonged exposure has been linked to permanently reduced lung function in children, as well as inflammation of the airways and asthma.
Children are also surrounded by toxic gases from cooking and lead-based paints, harmful chemicals from furnishings, mould spores, dust and allergens. The spread of airborne virus and bacteria is a big problem in kindergartens and can have a knock-on effect on families. Every time a child gets sick it forces a parent to miss work and puts the whole family at risk of infection. A study in California found that improving indoor air quality and reducing sickness could save families $80 million in unnecessary childcare costs
Health impacts related to poor indoor air quality can all be avoided with Radic8. Pollen, dust and dander responsible for allergic reactions are filtered out of the air, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter from nearby roads are neutralised, viruses and bacteria are destroyed. For as little as $3 per child per month, kindergartens can be transformed into spaces where children are protected from the health damaging air pollution outside
