What can I do to manage IAQ in my school(s)?

The physical design of your school building and the way it is operated and maintained can play a major role in the building’s IAQ. The materials used to build or renovate and furnish school buildings; the products used to clean and control pests; and the design and operation of the school’s ventilation system can all impact the school’s IAQ. Paying attention to these processes, and implementing policies and procedures that stress the importance of building and maintaining healthy school environments can have a great impact on what IAQ issues emerge in a school, how they are addressed, and what can be done to prevent IAQ problems in the future.
