Ever wondered why air quality monitoring is crucial for businesses?
According to the World Health Organization, Indoor air is often more seriously polluted than the outdoor air. For good health, well-being and safety reasons, humans need to be in a comfortable indoor environment with good air quality. The air must be free from dust, irritants, unpleasant smell, mold and mildew and other airborne contaminants.
Indoor Air Pollution is an invisible threat to your health. Many factors are responsible for poor indoor air quality (IAQ) in hotels & resorts. Some often-unnoticed cases include:
Potential Indoor Pollutants
|Ammonia||Cleaning Products||Irritation in the eye|
|Bacteria||Molds and Mildew, Fungi||Respiratory complaints|
|Carbon Dioxide||Combustion of energy, improper ventilation||Drowsiness, fatigue, headache|
|Dust & Particles||Carpets and rugs, Smoking||Allergic symptoms|
|Formaldehyde||Fabrics, furniture, fire retardants, adhesives,||Headache, drowsiness|
|Carbon Monoxide||Improperly-used or incorrectly-vented fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, stoves, water heaters and fireplaces||Confusion and drowsiness, fast breathing, fast heartbeat, or chest pain|
|Nitrogen Dioxide||Car exhaust fumes from the nearby traffic||Respiratory issues leading to asthma|
|Odors||Artificial room freshener, smoking, cooking||Cranky mood, headache, stress|
|Volatile Organic Compounds||Solvents, aerosol sprays, cosmetics dry-cleaning, paints, pesticides, smoking||Irritation in the eye, nose, and skin|

Maintaining good Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is important for the hotel environment for many reasons – some of them are potentially significant for the property’s growth.
