Add That Extra Layer of Protection with Air Purification Technology for Hotels
Hotels have applied stringent methods in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 and have turned to various hotel technologies in an effort to provide a safe environment for guests and employees. Travelers also have an expectation of a safe environment where they can spend time with family and friends. According to the U.S. Consumer Sentiment on In-door Air Quality and COVID-19, 91% of consumers considered in-door air quality (IAQ) to be important in the prevention of COVID-19. 77% believed that in-door air quality would have an impact on which hotels they decided to book. And 52% were willing to pay more to stay at a hotel with better in-door air quality. Consumers want hotels to invest in hotel technology to add that extra layer of protection to their hotel stay and hotels can meet that demand by investing in air purifiers.

ActivePure Air Purification Technology for Hotels
Hotels can improve their in-door air quality and add an added layer of protection to their properties with ActivePure air and surface purification technology. ActivePure technology has the ability to inactivate SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. ActivePure is safe for continuous use in indoor spaces that are occupied by people and pets and is effective against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in the air and on surfaces. The technology works continuously 24/7 and can be configured for hard-to-treat spaces, such as elevators, stairwells and bathrooms. ActivePure technology has been scientifically proven to safely inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19 on surfaces and in the air. And works by continuously circulating virus-neutralizing particles that actively targets and inactivates pathogens.
ActivePure has been extensively tested and is proven to fight the spread of disease by inactivating pathogens on surfaces and in the air, including the virus that causes COVID-19. The technology is available in both portable and installed products that can be adapted to any space and has the capacity to cover large areas. In June of 2020, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deemed the ActivePure Medical Guardian as a Class II Medical Device. ActivePure Medical Guardian uses the same ActivePure Technology and has been found to be safe for use indoors and in occupied areas. The coronavirus is more concentrated in enclosed areas and can be easily transmitted in indoor spaces. The FDA found that ActivePure was more than 99% effective at inactivating a high concentration of the SARS-CoV-2 virus within three minutes.

Air Purifiers Can Give Hotels a Competitive Edge
With the rise in COVID-19 cases, hotels are actively seeking ways to make their properties safer and to combat the spread of viruses and bacteria. Hotels have invested in anti-microbial lighting technology that is effective against microbes and other viruses and bacteria, as well and other hotel technologies such as UV light technology and contactless technology, to ensure a safe environment for guests and employees. Air purifiers can help hotels to neutralize particles in the air, such as dust, chemicals from cleaning, smoke, as well as viruses and bacteria that are not visible to the naked eye. Air purification systems can create a safer and more comfortable environment for everyone on hotel properties. Hotels can gain a competitive edge by using air purifiers to make improvements to their in-door air quality and by clearly communicating those safety measures. Consumers are more aware that the air can contain bacteria and viruses and are actively seeking hotels that have that added layer of protection in place.
