Indoor air quality is one of the first things guests and patrons notice on entering an establishment. On average indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Airborne particles can range from seasonal allergies to bacteria and viruses. These particles can cause anything from headaches and itchy eyes to respiratory problems for your guests.
An increase in humidity could lead to condensation and increased moisture on the walls, ceiling and surfaces. This can hamper room décor, ruin wooden furniture and leave a musty odour.
Many other factors that affect indoor air quality in hospitality establishments include the levels of outdoor polution, cleaning chemicals, smoking, carpets and soft furnishings, poor ventilation and the amount of moisture in the indoor environment, which increases considerably in hot humid climates, such as near kitchen areas or hotel gymnasiums, spas or indoor swimming pools. In some cases this can lead to mould and mildew.
Certain moulds thrive in damp and humid conditions and can lead to hay-fever like symptoms and affect guests suffering from asthma. Allergies can be exacerbated by air-conditioning, dust mites or materials in the rooms.
Often guests will not complain about a stuffy environment, but they are more than likely not to return or recommend the establishment.
