Approximately 22 million school days are lost to the common cold every year. School environments are filled with hotspots for bacteria, and cold and flu viruses can live on a surface for up to 48 hours if it is not disinfected regularly. It is obviously very important to keep a school as clean as possible for the well being of students and staff, but there are other benefits of maintaining cleanliness in schools.
Research shows that healthy students are motivated to focus on success. On average, primary school children pick up between 4 and 8 colds a year, but these numbers can be decreased by maintaining clean facilities and preventing the spread of germs. Healthy pupils are able to focus better and lose less time to sickness. Teachers play an important role, but when they are frequently absent it can impact the quality of a student’s education. Healthy and clean schools cut down on teacher illness and absenteeism and contribute to keeping kids on track with their studies.
Air quality is also important, as dust and other allergens can trigger asthma, which is one of the main causes of absenteeism. Further studies have shown that adequate ventilation helps attention spans and concentration. Overall, it’s very clear that children and adults perform better when they are in a clean and healthy environment.
