St. Agatha day care centres
During the coronavirus pandemic, the St. Agatha association in Gronau-Epe decided to equip their 5 day care centres with the DEOS SAM indoor air quality indicators. In total, 30 indoor air quality indicators are used in 16 groups for 335 children.
Since then, both the teachers and the children feel much safer and the indoor air quality indicators have become an integral part of the day care centre’s daily routine. The teachers especially appreciate their user-friendliness.
When the day care centre association had to decide on the issue of ventilation, the purchasing of ventilation units was also discussed. However, these were quickly ruled out because of the comparatively high purchase costs and the expensive maintenance required. There were also concerns about the noise level.
