Allergies, Hotel Rooms and other areas…

300 million people worldwide suffer from allergies. In the UK alone, there are  over 18 million allergy sufferers - that's 1 in 3 of the population. 40% of children suffer from an allergy, displaying symptoms such as a stuffy or runny nose, asthma, eczema, and persistent coughs.

Furthermore, many more people do not even realise that their asthma,  stuffy nose, persistent cough, sore throat, eczema, conjunctivitis, tummy upset and diarrhoea, is in fact a symptom of a reaction to everyday allergens: the house dust mite, pets, mould… Such allergens can also be virulent in hotel rooms and restaurants etc

For those who suffer these reactions to such everyday allergens, going away on holiday or just staying away from home on business, can be far from the relaxing experience that it should be.

If they had the option, over 80% of travellers say they would  choose one hotel over another based on availability of allergy friendly rooms…they would also be willing to pay extra for those rooms.

It is well known that Dust mites are the largest contributors to allergies and due to poor standards of cleanliness and hygiene in many hotels, levels of dust mites are very high.

Dust mites the class of arthropods which includes spiders, scorpions and ticks. They are tiny insects that are invisible to the naked eye. They  are found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bedcovers, clothes, and fabric and fabric-covered items.They feed on human skin flakes. Parts and faeces from dust mites can trigger asthma in individuals with allergic reactions to dust mites, and exposure can cause asthma in children who have not previously exhibited asthma symptoms.

When we sleep we produce half a litre of sweat and shed about 1 gram of skin cells per day. It is estimated that in a mattress there may be up to 10 million dust mites in a mattress and up to 10% of the weight of a mattress is made up of dead skin and dust mites. It is also thought that up to 80% of the dust we see is in fact dead skin cells.

An undercover operation by Which? Holiday (Jan 2009) has uncovered poor standards of cleaning in some of the UK’s most visited budget hotel chains. Stained and mouldy mattresses, a suspected blood-stained duvet, food debris on the floor, high levels of dust under the bed, a toilet with urine and faeces round the edge of the seat were just some of the discoveries made.

At best!  you owe it to your guests, customers and staff to provide the safest, most hygienic and healthy leisure environment possible. When a hotel or food service establishment has been treated with our coating, it lets guests and customers know how serious you are about their care, safety and well being.
