Allergens Ruining Your Guest Experience

INTERNATIONAL REPORT—More than 50 million Americans experience allergies, and allergy season is getting longer and getting worse each year. In fact, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stated that indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental dangers.

Allergy is the most common chronic disease in Europe. Up to 20% of patients with allergies live with a severely debilitating form of their condition and struggle daily with the fear of a possible asthma attack, anaphylactic shock, or even death from an allergic reaction. Today, more than 150 million Europeans suffer from chronic allergic diseases and the current prediction is that by 2025 half of the entire EU population will be affected (EAACI).


Pollen, pet dander, and dust mites could be causing allergic reactions in guestrooms.


As hoteliers, the focus is on delivering the best guest experience possible and one of the most effective ways to help ensure that positive result is to protect guests from allergies. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, better air quality can reduce allergy and asthma triggers.

Here are three tips to protect guests from common allergens:


Use HEPA Filter Vacuums


Are vacuums helping or hurting? A good vacuum can be a game-changer for anyone who suffers from seasonal allergies.

Vacuums do a great job at pulling dirt and debris from floors & carpets, but they also kick a lot of dust and smaller particles back into the air. Simply upgrading your vacuum filters to HEPA filters can remove up to 99.7% of small particles from the air, helping to reduce allergic reactions and improve your guest experience.

Lux vacuum cleaners, for example, are being built with a filtration system that removes allergens. Thanks to the 5 stages Swiss Mediclean™ filtration system, with its exclusive Swiss HEPA™ filter, the multiple layer dust bag, the active carbon filter and the post-motor HEPA filter with anti-bacterial treatment, the S115 not only cleans your surfaces but also purifies your ambient air.


Improve Indoor Air Quality


How can your air conditioner help to reduce allergens? EPA studies have shown that indoor air quality can be two to five times more polluted than outside air. Running an air conditioner with a HEPA filter can help reduce airborne particles in guestrooms. They also reduce humidity, which helps inhibit the growth of dust mites and mold. To further improve air quality, keep windows and exterior doors closed to help keep pollen from outside at bay.

Lux Professional offers you imaginative air treatment structures designed to upgrade the air quality. Air purification is one solution to this problem and using an air purifier can remove over 99,97% of harmful pollutants. An effective air purification system can eliminate pollutants as small as 0.3 microns thereby improving health and greatly reducing health risks.
