Why Hotels Should Opt for Air Quality Monitoring Systems?

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:

  • The level of outdoor air pollution caused due to smog, traffic emissions and the use of chemical pesticides.
  • Unobserved sources of indoor pollution originated from cleaning chemicals, use of artificial room fresheners, carpets and soft furnishings.
  • Improper ventilation and air distribution rate.
  • Amount of moisture present in kitchen areas, gym, spa, and indoor swimming pool leads to the growth of mold and mildew which can cause serious health issues.

Importance of Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

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.

  • Guest satisfaction – often guests will not complain about a stuffy environment or a room that exacerbates any allergies they may have, but they are unlikely to return or recommend your hotel to others.
  • Staff productivity – staff cannot work efficiently and effectively if they are uncomfortable. This will affect their concentration, productivity and how they relate to your clients. Poor air quality can cause headaches, tiredness, dry or sore eyes or throat, skin irritation, dizziness, and even nausea.
  • So-called ‘sick building syndrome’ can have a detrimental effect on long-term health. Reduced operating costs by reducing energy consumption (and your carbon dioxide emissions) through investment in modern, efficient air-conditioning equipment and proper maintenance.
