Are you prepared to deal with allergens before they affect your guests? More than 50 million Americans experience allergies, and allergy season is getting longer and getting worse each year.
1. HEPA Filter Vacuums
Vacuums do a great job at pulling dirt and debris from floors and 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.
EPA studies have shown that indoor air quality can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside air. Running an air conditioner with a HEPA filter can help reduce airborne particles that are polluting your rooms. 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.
Mattresses and pillows collect lots of dust mite debris, allergens, and other dirt particles over their lifetime. Removing this debris isn’t easy, but preventing the accumulation is easier than you might think. Protect your mattresses, pillows, and your guests, with AllerEase® mattress and pillow protectors from Standard Textile. Your guests will sleep easily and comfortably, knowing they are safeguarded from bedbugs, dust mites, and other allergens. These barriers are anti-microbial, waterproof, and incredibly easy to install and remove for cleaning.
