In the past 20 years, an expanding body of evidence has shown the tremendous impact indoor air pollution has on our health. All people are susceptible, especially infants, children, the elderly and persons with chronic diseases. Since most children typically spend a large amount of their time in school classrooms, they are often exposed to very high levels of air pollutants in school rooms, including mold, airborne contagious diseases, chemical fumes and gases, odors, etc.
"Mold in schools is on the rise and making children sick. According to a Government Accounting Office report, 20% of the USA's 80,000 public schools have indoor air quality problems. "I'm inundated with schools," says Richard Shaughnessy, program manager of Indoor Air Research at the University of Tulsa and an instructor in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Tools for Schools indoor air quality training program." -- USA Weekend Special Report, August 20, 2000
The effects of breathing indoor air pollution, especially mold, include dizziness, irritability, coughing, sneezing, dry eyes, hay fever, allergies, asthma symptoms, sinus problems, ear infections, depression, fatigue, headaches, nausea, breathing problems, respiratory infections and more. Plus the effects of breathing contagious diseases -- spread by airborne germs, viruses and bacteria -- promote increased student and teacher absenteeism.
This epidemic has grown to such huge proportions that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ranked indoor air pollution as a high priority public health risk. Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) concluded that preventing exposure to environmental allergens and irritants may help prevent asthma.
If you suspect mold in your school, get it confirmed by someone certified to do mold testing. Once confirmed, the next step is mold remediation, which is a deep treatment of the building materials to eliminate all sources of mold growth in and around all school rooms. If you are in need of such a company, please call us at 866-875-4386 for the name of a company that not only trains others in their mold remediation techniques, but they are the only mold remediation company we are aware of that gives a Due Diligence Guarantee that they will solve your mold problem.
In the meantime, you need to purify the air of the mold spores and other airborne pollution and contagious diseases that make your students and teachers sick. Air Oasis air purifiers eliminate a broad range of pollutants in the air and on surfaces, including school mold. High-end industrial versions of this technology are used in mold remediation, and the smaller Air Oasis models are typically installed in schools once mold remediation has been completed as part of the Due Diligence Guarantee requirements to prevent future outbreaks of mold. A partial list of pollution that Air Oasis units oxidize include:
"Carol, I just wanted to give you an update on our Air Oasis 1000's performance. The results are extremely positive. All teachers involved agree that the proof is in the physical. They all report that their allergy symptoms have subsided greatly, they sleep better at night and the students are having less trips to the nurse's office. As a matter of fact one of the teachers wants to borrow the unit for her home over the summer break. I can let you know that I will be probably be purchasing four induct units this summer for these temporary housing units. Thank you for all the information you gave me. It truly seemed too good to be true, but the proof is in the response from the people directly involved."
-- Tom Van Huss, Maintenance Director, Calvary Christian School
"I have very bad allergies and I have noticed the difference. My puffy eyes are gone, I sleep more soundly, and I noticed my husband is not snoring as much. My husband is a hard sell -- at first he didn't say much about it, but I caught him telling his family at an outing about the difference he noticed in the air quality in our home and his allergy/sinus problems being better." -- Katy F.
