As we move from remote learning and start to transition back to in-class education, our heightened awareness of the dangers in the air we breathe raises concern about the air’s safety in schools. Met One Instruments, Inc. is proud to support school districts in detecting air particle levels within the classroom and surrounding areas and record these samples as a basis for reference and improvement where needed.

Justin Tocher is the custodial manager at Three Rivers School District in Grants Pass, Oregon. He utilizes the Aerocet-831 as part of his daily maintenance inspection routine to measure particulate levels from room-to-room. Justin finds Met One’s Aerocet-831 very easy to operate in taking samples throughout the schools and uses the measurement readings to identify any particulate source emissions that may need addressing.

Good indoor air quality is a critical component in meeting the primary goal of educating our children. Indoor Air Quality problems left unaddressed can increase long-and short-term health problems for students and staff. These health effects could be:

• Coughing
• Eye irritation
• Headaches
• Allergic Reactions
• Aggravation to Asthma or Other Respiratory Illnesses
• Brain Fog
• & More

Poor indoor air quality often impacts student, teacher, and staff attendance, comfort, and performance. A particle monitor is proven to be a useful tool for detecting particulate triggers that lead to health and learning problems. Such a device can help promote a healthy learning and working environment, increase attendance, improve test scores, and enhance student and staff productivity. Sense and respond to the needs of your students and staff with Met One Instruments handheld particle counters.
