The importance of clean air in schools and nurseries

The theme of Clean Air Day 2021 is protect our children’s health from air pollution’. This theme raises important questions about how we can make interior and exterior environments safer for our children.

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of poor air quality – as it can impact their growth and negatively affect their health for the rest of their lives.

Research in the UK found that children are often breathing in fine particle pollution at levels higher than WHO guidelines, putting them at risk of short and long-term health problems.

As well as germs and bacteria, polluted air is often full of allergens. This is a major cause for concern as over 50% of children have some form of allergy.

How can schools and nurseries improve their interior air?


Air purifiers are a safe and easy way to clean interior air, with options to suit every need and budget.

AERAMAX and BIOZONE air purifiers are proven to capture and remove 99.99% of germs and viruses from interior air, including COVID-19. Allowing schools and nurseries to provide safe and clean air for children.

These air purifiers are able to work 24/7, and are wall mounted for added ease. If you purchase or rent an air purifier from phs we’ll even do all the work for you; from installation to ongoing maintenance.
