March 9, 2008 - PRLog -- What does it take to ensure optimal indoor air and environmental quality in hotel rooms?

Indoor air and environmental quality (IAEQ) challenges are a reality in any hospitality facility. In a perfect world, the indoor environment would be pure and contaminant-free. But the real world has the human factor - and, thus, Indoor environmental quality issues.

Smoking, renovation projects, poor maintenance of air handling units & fan coil units, air distribution, high humidity, and even improper design can contribute to a decline in a facility’s air and environmental quality. In the dynamic environment of a hotel, such challenges become even more prevalent

Avoidance measures, protective and/or mitigation measures have marked therapeutic effect to guests to these allergens.  The ability to measure indoor air enables the occupant to quantitatively analyze the allergen load, thermal conditions and aerobiology content in an environment.

Understanding temperature, relative humidity, surface particulate, allergen load and airborne particulate is extremely advantageous to understanding the total environment and imperative to knowing what preventive mitigation measures to prescribe.  

The importance of Allergy Friendly Rooms in today world

A recent survey showed the vast majority of frequent business travelers (85%) saying they would prefer to stay in a Hotel room that is allergy friendly. They indicated that they would be willing to pay a premium for staying in such room.

It has been estimated that millions of travelers around the world suffer from allergies. Many experience environmental illness or chemical sensitivity. That's nearly one in four travelers who experience anything from watery eyes to acute respiratory distress.

Come experience a new world “Allergy Friendly Room”

Yes, now hotel have the choice of offering their guest allergy friend rooms.  Many of this allergen we are addressing is microscopic in sizes or in form of gasses “VOCs.” That strong foul odour you smell is mostly likely MVOC – “Microbial Volatile Organic Compound.” This is normally released by micro organisms residing in the environments.  The high microbial load or the insufficient fresh air dilution causes a build up of such foul smell.

The Air Con

Air handling unit in room plays an important role in providing comfort in terms of temperature, humidity and most importantly, filtering biological airborne allergen and dusts particulate.

Air filters are part of the front-line for dealing with microbial problems in our rooms. Upgrading efficiency of air filters by adding a durable, safe and effective antimicrobial treatment can protect the air filter from abnormal fungal growth and improve the air quality of our rooms. Treatment of Aegis Microbe Shield has shown significant reduction of biological load in the air.

Walls & Ceiling & Carpets

Due to the temperature differences, high humidity, choices of material use, make many of the indoor surfaces encourage the growth of micro organisms.  Treatment of Aegis Microbe Shield on the surfaces inhibits the growth of these biological pollutants on the surfaces.

Long Term Benefit of AEGIS Microbe Shield

ÆGIS Microbe Shield technology does not dissipate or leach, it can not be absorbed by the organism - or by you. With the ÆGIS Microbe Shield technology, the membrane of the microbe is physically ruptured by a stabbing and electrocution action. Since it is not consumed and does not dissipate, the antimicrobial active is not depleted and continues to control microbial growth over time. This means that the antimicrobial will be fully effective as long as the surface remains intact.
