During my first few years of teaching, I was miserable. No, it wasn’t my students or the curriculum, it was my classroom that was taking a toll on my health. I have seasonal allergies and my room was making me sick. Looking back, I wish I would’ve had the Venta Airwasher in my classroom. I recently started using this in our home preschool room and I couldn’t be more pleased with how well the Venta cleans the air. It’s noticeable different! This machine is a humidifier and air purifier that does an amazing job cleaning the air we breathe.
I know you have a ton of things you need for your classroom, but today I want to share with you why I believe every teacher needs a Venta in their classroom!
Disclosure: I received a Venta Airwasher in exchange for an honest review. As always, my reviews are 100% my own opinion. This post contains affiliate links.
I’ve been using a Venta for over a month and this is by far the best humidifier and air purifier I’ve ever used. There are so many things I like about this product. I love how easy it is to use and maintain and how quiet it is, but most of all I love all the health benefits.
Here are the health benefits to using the Venta Airwasher:
- reduces dust in the room
- removes allergens and bacteria
- decreases dry skin, nosebleeds, headaches and sinus pressure
- reduces pet dander and odors
- doesn’t over-humidify (with the cold water evaporation system, the air takes only the moisture it needs from the Venta Airwasher, and no more. The humidification stops, but the purification continues.)
As a big allergy sufferer, these health benefits are HUGE to me!
So why would you need the Venta in your classroom? There are some really great reasons why! Since the Venta removes nasty particulates in the air like dust, pollen, and mold it will really help students with asthma and seasonal allergies. Having cleaner air improves the focus and concentration of students, which is incredibly important for learning! The Venta also helps eliminate dry skin and headaches. Something else that is amazing is that it removes bacteria in the air, which results in less sick students. You know how classrooms can start to get smelly or have a stuffy feeling? This Airwasher really helps to eliminate that!
I know it’s hard to actually “see” a difference with an Airwasher, but I can tell you that when I walk into our school room, the air smells clean and fresh.
Something else I love about the Venta is how easy it is to maintain. You simply just fill the Venta with cold tap water every day. You do not need to change any filters, but it is recommended to buy a water treatment additive. Every 10-14 days, you completely empty the remaining water in the Airwasher and rinse it out. (This is where you’ll see the particles that the Venta has cleaned out!)
The Venta is so easy to set up and maintain. I’ve never used a humidifier that’s as easy as this one. The only thing that is a little bit tricky is filling up the basin. I fill it up with our bathtub nearby and then carry it back, but it can be a little heavy. But really, that is the only thing that is a little hard. Everything else I truly love about it.
Let me tell you…I so wish I would’ve had a Venta in my classroom. Selfishly, it would’ve helped my allergies so much, but I know the cleaner air would have helped focus and concentration for my students.
If you want to get one for your classroom or home, just click here or on the picture below. I have the Kuubel LW45 (which is the largest size) but there are 2 smaller sizes as well. I truly think that this is a must-have in a classroom!
