To help hospitality venues become safer for guests and staff while also giving owners an edge to their businesses, AirZones is helping develop a new competitive standard for indoor air quality (IAQ) within the industry. A newcomer to the field, AirZones is already being billed as the first Independent, star-rated standard for IAQ in the hospitality sector.
“If you could choose to go somewhere that you know has good, clean, healthy air, compared to somewhere with dirtier or more polluted air, where would you choose to go? We are helping businesses deliver healthier air to attract more customers. Improvements in air quality also mean less staff downtime, better concentration and better moods – literally, a better atmosphere!” says spokesman and company co-founder Chris Leighton in Hotel News.
“Air quality could well become a new competitive business differentiator, with people voting with their lungs. Our impartial, independent ratings are a step towards proper, honest environmental stewardship. We need AC to live comfortably in this region – but why risk suffering from health issues because of poor air quality?”
The AirZones Method
The company starts by using air quality sensors and monitors to analyze indoor air quality at specific venues or zones. Following their preliminary testing, the team them suggests simple improvements, such as switching to low-VOC products in a space or adding in purifiers to help aid in high-traffic areas.
Following this assessment, AirZones then awards an Indoor Air Quality Star Rating ranked from one to five. From there, the decision will be left up to guests, customers and clients as to which venues they wish to frequent. By following the instructions AirZones provides, hospitality venues can then improve indoor quality within a space and contribute to making a healthier building.
Since the reopening of businesses, many have been hesitant about returning to public, indoor spaces, with many stating that a lack of knowledge about the air quality of those spaces is what’s preventing them from returning. Likewise, businesses have since had a difficulty in conveying that information to guests and customers, and with this solution, AirZones hopes to be able to provide a clear and concise means of communication, on top of enabling healthier spaces.
