Cleaner and safer learning environments
for Head Start programs & affiliates

Did you know?

Over the course of a K-12 education, a child will spend more than 15,000 hours at school.

Classrooms, cafeterias, libraries, and gyms — even when cleaned to high standards — are reservoirs for biological and chemical contaminants.

Year-roundschool building conditions may expose students and staff to substances that trigger asthma, allergies, headaches, nausea, and other symptoms that make it difficult, if not impossible, to learn or teach

The total air & surface solution

For Head Start programs and affiliates across the country, it's important to consider your facility's indoor air quality and surface disinfection protocols.

WellAir's medical-grade solutions for both air and surface help schools optimize health, wellbeing, cognitive function, and productivity for children and staff by reducing and eliminating harmful microorganisms.

WellAir is committed to offering equitable opportunities for clean air to everyone.

Air and surface solutions, designed for classrooms

WellAir’s Protect and Defend air cleaning and disinfection devices are easy to use, portable and quiet in operation. The devices offer the safest and most cost-effective airborne pathogen protection available. At the core of the devices is NanoStrike™ patented technology to inactivate and burst harmful airborne pathogens in a sub-second timeframe, keeping them from spreading.

NuvaWave is ideal for chemical-free, routine disinfection. Unlike chemical wipes or sprays, instant UV with NuvaWave is safe to use on sensitive devices, equipment and tools allowing safe disinfection of high-touch surfaces on a more routine basis.

Protect Series

NanoStrike technology is combined with a one or two-speed fan in the Protect 200 and Protect 900.

Easy to use, flexible in positioning, and quiet in operation, the portable devices provide the safest and most cost-effective airborne pathogen protection in a continuous manner to people in small-to-medium-sized spaces.

Defend Series

The FDA has cleared the Defend 1050 and Defend 400 as 510(k) Class II Medical Devices to filter out and inactivate airborne viruses and bacteria within medium - large rooms and indoor spaces.

The devices use NanoStrikeTM technology combined with a triple-stage Camfil® filter system to provide a solution for air disinfection and particle removal.


The NuvaWave device is the world's first instant UV disinfection handheld that kills >99.9% of viruses and bacteria like MRSA, E.coli, Salmonella, and SARS-CoV-2.

It's the ultimate solution for surface and school equipment disinfection. Disinfecting surfaces and equipment to eliminate pathogens has never been safer or faster than with NuvaWave.

What our customers are saying

In October 2021, our Head Start program was able to provide several Nanostrike units in our classrooms and gyms. Each portable air disinfection device is proven to remove airborne viruses and bacteria. [The units are] extremely quiet when in operation and can run 24/7. Our staff do not need to clean or worry about the maintenance of the unit[s].

The WellAir [Protect 900] portable air infection prevention device provides vital peace of mind. The medical-grade NanoStrike technology it uses helps to safely clean the air by reducing contaminants and viruses 24 hours a day. The decision was obvious once we reviewed the scientific data, specifically its effectiveness on the SARS CoV-2 virus.

Ken Mueller
Director of Operations

We looked at many options and chose the Protect 900 from WellAir. The units were easy to set up, very quiet and we don’t have to worry about buying filters or disposing of them. The NanoStrike Technology from WellAir is clinically proven, amazing and we trust it! We feel safer and the parents of our children appreciate the steps we’ve taken to improve indoor air quality for our kids and staff.
