New School Year in Puerto Rico and the Importance of Healthy Indoor Air Quality
Zimmetry Environmental provides indoor environmental testing and consulting services to identify and resolve air quality issues in schools.
Tough economic times have resulted in numerous schools having their preventive maintenance and operating budgets reduced in recent years and this can contribute to indoor air quality (IAQ) problems.
This month, students and teachers across Puerto Rico begin returning to classrooms for the start of the new school year. Unfortunately, too many school districts face challenges when it comes to providing a healthy environment for their students and teachers.
Tough economic times have resulted in numerous schools having their preventive maintenance and operating budgets reduced in recent years and this can contribute to indoor air quality (IAQ) problems. Poor IAQ is not just a comfort issue. Exposure to elevated levels of particulates, chemicals and biological contaminants can lead to health concerns. Inadequate ventilation and temperature fluctuations can also negatively impact a student’s ability to learn.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Evidence from schools and office building studies demonstrate that various environmental conditions are closely associated with the incidence of measurable adverse health effects, and that indoor air quality problems can result in increased absences because of respiratory infections, allergic diseases from biological contaminants, or adverse reactions to chemicals used in the building.”
“Good indoor air quality is vital for the success of any school,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “School districts in Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean that have concerns about indoor environmental issues can rely on the building science experts at Zimmetry Environmental. We’ve identified and resolved a wide range of issues in all types of educational facilities. The end result is a healthy indoor environment where students can learn and teachers are able to educate our children.”
Zimmetry has also sponsored an educational video about IAQ issues in schools that can be seen at: https://youtu.be/8ktQGXR5xPA
