A Healthy Space for Children
The choice to trust your children in the hands of a daycare isn’t always an easy one. As a working family, you rely on childcare so you can go to work, school, or another responsibility. Roughly a quarter of children under five are in an organized childcare system (daycare, preschool, nurseries). Meaning, you expect your little ones to be in a safe, clean space while you are away from them.
Daycares, preschools, nurseries, after school programs, and any other area where children are cared for are prime locations for Activa Coating to shine. Activa can help protect them in their home away from home.
The main cause of dirt on interior walls is the gradual build-up of particles and pollutants on them. These pollutants taint the air that we continuously breathe. Children are already more high-risk and susceptible to germs, so breathing in polluted air isn’t ideal for them. Walls and ceilings are not somewhere that most people consider cleaning, which means painting them with Activa Coating will help keep them clean. Activa is self-cleaning as it uses photocatalysis to destroy dirt and germs.
Painting inside a daycare, preschool, nursery, or after school program can help save the staff and children from breathing in pollution due to dirt pollution. This is especially helpful for children who have allergies or asthma. Pollution exacerbates these illnesses and that can be hard for children to deal with without their parents. Dirt contains nutrients for bacteria and fungi to grow and reproduce. Activa breaks down and prevents the build-up of new dirt and pollution, keeping the walls and ceilings clean and air healthy.
Due to Activa Coating’s photocatalytic powers, it is antimicrobial. That means when air containing viruses, fungi, mold spores, bacteria, and other microorganisms passes by a wall or ceiling painted with Activa Coating, Activa works to reduce and eliminate them. So not only do your little ones get to breathe in clean air free of harmful pollutants, they can breathe in clean air free from microorganisms.
One of the best advantages of daycare is that children get to spend time with their peers, but that comes at a cost. Children are always spreading sickness to each other, especially in winter. With weaker immune systems, children need all the help they can to stay protected from illnesses. Four of the most common illnesses—common cold, flu, pneumonia, and strep throat—are viruses or bacteria that Activa can destroy.
Traditional deodorizing systems consist of perfumes being dispersed into the air to block smelly odors. However, we are still breathing in the pollutants we are trying to cover up, even if we don’t notice the smell. Plus, traditional deodorizing systems with perfumes are extremely harmful for our bodies and environment. Photocatalytic surfaces, like Activa, do not emit any odor and they destroy the harmful compounds that produce them.
In our case, the absence of odor indicates the purity and cleanliness of the air entering our lungs. Activa Coating can help make any environment healthier to spend time in. This is vital to the success of anyone, especially little humans. Children need the purest and healthiest environments possible to protect them and allow them to thrive.
Encourage your child’s daycare, preschool, nursery, or after school program to paint their rooms with Activa Coating. It’s a win-win scenario for any company; on top of protecting their building and keeping it clean, they protect the little ones who make their jobs possible. We are here to make the world cleaner and healthier with our easy to apply products. It is the simple intelligence of Activa.
