Improve air quality in child care centers

From 1 April 2017, childcare must comply with the 2012 Building Decree, which is a good thing because studies from various GGDs show that the air quality in many childcare centers can be improved (source: GGD). Stricter requirements for air quality and ventilation are described in the new 2012 Building Decree. New requirements and legislation always raise questions, especially when it comes to air quality. In childcare, the indoor air is continuously polluted by odors, fine dust, micro-organisms, bacteria and viruses. This is unhealthy for both children and employees. It can cause illnesses, lung problems and allergic reactions.

Causes of poor air quality at child care centers

  • Keeping windows and doors closed because of noise from outside or prevent children from walking away.
  • Nasty smells from diapers.
  • Children could be sick and as a result they bring bacteria and viruses to child care centers where they remain hanging in the air.
  • Air and heat loss can also be a reason to keep the window closed.
  • Child care centers, located along major traffic routes, suffer from (ultra) particulate matter due to an excess of exhaust gas emissions. You want to leave polluted air outside.

Obviously, sufficient fresh air and, particularly, healthy air are important for improving the air quality at child care centers. This problem can be solved fairly easily through air cleaning.

Stale air at child care centers

The air in child care centers is often stale. This is caused by poor ventilation. When the air ‘stands still’ it becomes stale. Moreover, the pupils often bring all kinds of odours with them, such as sweat after playing and the scent of clothing that has been soaked in the rain. Most child care centers are more than full, which means there are plenty of potential ‘unpleasant odours’ that can pollute in the indoor air.
