Cleaner, Healthier Air for Nurseries, Kindergartens & Pre-Schools

Some of the more common effects of air pollution include:

- Children are frequently ill due to overexposure to germs, viruses and bacteria
- Children develop allergies such as asthma, because of exposure to traffic pollution
- Children with allergies are sick more often, are required to take medication and develop at a slower pace due to extended periods of illness

Providing children with clean air promotes their well being, reduces sickness and improves their performance.

Key Concerns


Nurseries located in polluted cities and near to main roads are exposing their children to elevated pollution levels, especially ultra-fine PM2.5 air pollution (which is so small that it can cross from the lungs and into the bloodstream). There is strong evidence supporting the link between pollution and the development of childhood asthma. Using an effective air purifier that is proven to remove these contaminants is recommended.


Children suffering from respiratory conditions such as asthma or hay fever must be supported to ensure development on par with their peers. We can work with you to develop allergen-free nurseries.


While limited exposure to infection is good for a child's immune system, it is disruptive to their development and their parent's work when children are overexposed. Removing airborne infection before it is inhaled is a crucial step to reducing a child's overexposure to germs.


Ensuring floors, tables, books, toys and the many other surfaces in nurseries are clean is a significant part of infection control, but it does not address the airborne infection. We can show you how we can remove airborne infection using the same technology as hospitals.


From nappy smells to cooking - there is an abundance of smells that prove challenging for nurseries to remove. Rather than mask smells with other – often toxic – smells, Commercial Air Filtration recommends air cleaners that remove odour pollution from the air, and anti-allergen cleaning products that effectively remove odour pollution from the source.


Air Purification

If the source of air pollution cannot be removed in the nursery, then the best way to remove pollution is by deploying an effective air filtration solution that meets with your needs. Our air filtration solutions can be configured in a number of ways, to help manage things like space, air temperature, airflow and removal of different kinds of pollution.

Anti-Allergen Cleaning Products

A child's breathing zone is naturally much closer to the floor. Unfortunately, air pollution can be at its most concentrated closer to the ground. Scientists have shown that children could be breathing the equivalent of four cigarettes every day because of this. Our anti-allergen products are not only effective cleaners but remove – not mask – allergens.


What does OFSTED recommend?

OFSTED’s "Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage" states that children learn best when they are in a healthy environment and one that promotes their safety. The more a nursery does to promote this, the higher the rating. Removing pollution from the air promotes their health and safety.

How do I know your solutions will help our children?

Our solutions are individually tested, certified and guaranteed to remove at least 99% of all airborne particulate contamination that are 0.3 microns in size. This means that virtually all airborne contamination from bacteria-to-viruses and traffic pollution such as PM2.5 is removed.

Is there a lot of maintenance? High running costs?

Our air purifiers are maintenance free, with the exception of changing the filters. Filter changes are user-friendly and take minutes to do, however, we do also offer a filter replacement service for a completely outsourced solution. Filters can last up to 3 years.

Our air purifiers are also energy efficient. Typically electricity costs are less than £25 per annum, per air purifier.

Infant Mental Development and Air Pollution Indoor air quality is an often overlooked source of exposure to pollution that can cause ill health. Far more attention is given to outdoor pollution. In fact, indoor air pollution may cause nearly 3% of the total global burden of disease, according to the World Health Organization. It makes sense – after all many of us spend up to 90% of our time indoors.

Cooking, either with solid fuel or gas, can be a major source of indoor air pollution, alongside cigarette smoke and fumes emitted from furniture, DIY products and office equipment.

Research has suggested that exposure to indoor allergens such as house dust mite in infancy is a strong risk factor for sensitisation and consequent development of asthma. Many young children spend time outside of their homes, in nurseries or pre-school. Later on, they will be at school, so these outside environments may be the source of allergen sensitisation. So a classic study on allergen levels in nurseries from researchers in France and Brazil makes for interesting reading and provides useful guidance on how to protect young children from developing allergies.
