One of the major contributors to student absenteeism is asthma. In fact, one out of every 13 school-age children has asthma and it accounts for roughly 15 million missed school days each year. For this reason, custodial operations focus heavily on improving indoor air quality while creating a positive learning enviroment and reducing student absenteeism.

Cleaning with vacuums equipped with HEPA filters can help improve the indoor air quality of schools and keep children in the classroom. Vacuums with HEPA filters can capture 99.9 percent of dust, pollen and other airborne particles. In addition to filters, sealed vacuums will make sure dust is not released back into the air.

With less dust in the air, students have fewer issues breathing and they can focus on education.
