Note: You should be concerned about air quality and indoor air pollution. If you suffer from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, allergies, or COPD, you need to be particularly concerned about the quality of air that you breathe.
Every little bit helps when it comes to air quality in hotels.
In hotels, there are often four main contributors to poor air quality.
The first is bacteria, which can cause illness or trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. Bacteria can get into a hotel’s air conditioning system, causing significant problems to numerous guests.
Mold is another common issue with hotels. If not properly cleaned and sanitized, mold can become embedded in the hotel’s walls, releasing spores that create significant breathing problems for hotel guests.
Third, there are dust mites. These microscopic organisms can be found in carpets, pillows, and mattresses, and they prefer areas with lots of human dander. These organisms can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms, and vacuuming with high-powered machines rarely removes all of them.
There are, of course, other causes of poor air quality in hotels, including chemical cleaners and fumes from paint and building materials.
Finally, a big issue in visits to hotels is a lack of ventilation. In some cases you cannot open the windows so the only air you get is from the air conditioning system. If the HVAC system is not blowing clean, fresh air into your room, the air quality will be poor.
