Indoor Air Disinfection for Preschools and Daycares

Indoor Air Disinfection for Preschools and Daycares

Safe, continuous indoor air disinfection can help significantly reduce the spread of sickness in a daycare or preschool.

Thanks to their developing immune systems, young children are especially susceptible to colds, flu, and other airborne illnesses that spread like wildfire in busy preschools and daycares. Traditional cleaning methods only go so far, since these methods can only clean surfaces and not the air itself. 

A continuous indoor air disinfection system uses the power of ultraviolet light to neutralize harmful pathogens in the air, creating a healthier, safer environment for little ones, caregivers, and staff.

What is UV Air Disinfection?

UV air disinfection uses a special type of light called UV-C. This light isn’t the same kind that gives you a sunburn; instead, it has the power to scramble the inner workings of germs like viruses and bacteria. When air passes through a UV-C device, the light disrupts the DNA of these harmful microbes, preventing them from multiplying and spreading sickness. This technology has been used for years in hospitals and other settings where keeping the air clean is crucial.

Benefits of Indoor Air Disinfection in Your Building

  • Continuous Disinfection: Unlike cleaning surfaces with a disinfectant spray, which only works for a finite period of time, UV-C light works around the clock. It destroys germs as they float through the air, providing a constant shield against illness.
  • Reduced Illness: Fewer sick days for children mean less disruption in your facility and less stress for parents. A healthier environment also protects your staff, reducing absences and ensuring consistent care.
  • Chemical-Free: Avoid the hazards of harsh cleaning chemicals circulating in the air. UV-C light provides powerful disinfection without introducing any toxins into the environment, making it a safe choice for everyone.

Safe for Young Children and Staff Alike

When it comes to preschools and daycares, safety is your top priority. If you decide to use an indoor air disinfection system, choose a specialized UV-C system designed for use in occupied spaces. 

The UV-C light in these systems creates a layer of invisible germ-destroying light in the upper air level of the room near the ceiling, far above your reach. Because the UV rays are shielded and directed upwards, there is no chance of direct exposure to this strong type of light. This ensures continuous disinfection without any risk to the children and staff below.
