Air pollution in hotel

There is an estimated number of 700,000 hotels and resorts worldwide, with the industry being worth over 570 billion USD. From vacations to business trips, hotels provide a necessary sanctuary, serving countless different purposes.

A content guest is arguably the main objective for all hoteliers, and a lot of work is put into cultivating guest satisfaction. Hotels are expected to deliver a safe environment for both its guests and staff. This naturally includes good indoor air quality, a component that is fundamental to human health.

Many hotels today do not allow room windows to open, partially to conserve air conditioning but also for the physical safety of hotel guests. Many people believe that as hotels are so heavily air conditioned, it is hard for viruses and other pollutants to persist. We can all attest to this myth being busted, due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 in hotels. Closed windows means reduced airflow, which on one hand, means that there is less pollution infiltrating the hotel’s indoor environment, but on the other hand, it means that pollutants brought into the hotel through other means, such as through guests, are unable to leave the environment.

We are seeing more and more consumers consider a hotel’s indoor air quality when deciding where to stay. Studies show that pre-pandemic, less than 5% of business travellers considered health to be the most important factor when booking a hotel, versus over 40% during the pandemic. Thus, the installation of a hotel air purification system is crucial in order to put people’s minds at ease.

Our hotel air purification systems

RHT Industries Ltd. produces many air purifiers that use our patented technology, Nano Confined Catalytic Oxidation, or NCCO, to decontaminate air. Among these NCCO air purifiers, are a plethora of different styles ranging from household and mini air purifiers, to machines designed for industrial use. Naturally, not all of these styles will be suitable for use as a hotel air treatment unit, however there are many styles that do meet the requirements of a hotel.

Frequently Asked Questions about hotel air purification systems

1. What is the air quality like in most hotels?

Air pollutants that persist in hotels include carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), total hydrocarbons (THCs), formaldehyde (HCHO), respirable particulate matter (PM10) and bacteria among other biological pollutants such as mould. Additionally, harsh cleaning agents and solvents used in hotels will cause there to be greater levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

2. Will hotel air treatment units actually be able to improve hotel air quality?

Air purification systems are able to remove pollutants, allergens and toxins from the air. Most of these purifiers will have a similar structure, whereby a fan sucks air in and a filter (one or more, usually made of a mesh material) captures and neutralises the pollutant particles, allowing clean air to recirculate into the environment. As mentioned before, most indoor air pollutants found within hotels are able to be filtered out. Therefore, it is safe to say that hotel air treatment units will most definitely be able to improve hotel air quality, leading to fewer indoor air pollutants in the short run, and hopefully greater benefits in the long run.

3. Why people concern more on hotel air purification system now?

It is estimated that the hotel and tourism industry make up around 10% of global GDP, however, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, this changed drastically. The installation of a hotel air purification system would help to combat the spread of infectious diseases and put wary people at ease, helping to restore business.
