How 'luxury' can a hotel be without clean air?





Air pollution is the single biggest environmental threat to human health and is linked to 1 in 6 deaths around the world every single year. Mainstream news coverage of air pollution is becoming a daily occurrence and public awareness of the dangers is rapidly growing. 

There are particular industries that must begin to take action and consider how this public awareness may affect business; none more so than luxury, city-based hotels. Such hotels don’t just offer a place to sleep but an entire experience and paying guests demand that quality and luxury be maintained. 

When you consider the wide range of pollution sources in a city hotel it is of no surprise that indoor air is on average five times more polluted than outdoor air. Busy cities provide high level of exposure to toxic traffic pollution, cooking fumes and smoke are released from kitchens and regular cleaning methods, carpets and furnishings release harmful VOCs and chemicals. If a hotel has a gym and/or spa facilities the potential for toxic mould and fungi spores due to humid conditions is also very high. 

As public awareness grows, hotels labelled as luxury need to promote clean air to remain ahead of the competition as a desirable accommodation for guests. This is even more relevant for hotels that host international guests e.g. from parts of Asia where air pollution is a real hot topic. Such guests will undoubtedly be inclined to stay at hotels that adopt clean air methods. 
Extractor fans and air conditioning units can deal with some air quality problems, but to meet and surpass air quality guidelines, air purification and sterilisation is a necessity.

The technology 
We invested our time into thoroughly researching the clean air technology market with the aim to identify its leading technology. After all, it would be no good for us to go around alerting people to the dangers of indoor pollution only to provide them with a second-rate solution.

Most of the technology on the market purifies air using filtration technology - typically HEPA filters, which can be very beneficial but have their limitations. Firstly, they don’t catch some of the most harmful particles i.e. anything smaller than 0.3 microns and secondly, the pollutants that they do catch aren’t killed or neutralised in the system, so can build up over time and actually become a source of pollution.

Only one company are producing technology able to catch and neutralise all air pollutants right down to the smallest nanoparticle, performing complete sterilisation; 
Radic8 and their innovative, patented ViruskillerTM technology. 

As the 
Highest Certified Clean Air Technology in the world, Radic8 products use an advanced UV reactor chamber to neutralise all known air pollutants, from traffic pollution to chemicals to mould, virus and bacteria, making Hotels a safe and pleasant place to work and stay. 

We at Airnitiative are delighted to be an Official Ambassador for Radic8 technology. If you are considering installing clean air technology in your Hotel, don't settle for a second rate solution.
