You never know when the pollen season is going to kick in. Sometimes it comes a bit early…sometimes a bit late, depending on the weather. Even during the course of a day pollen concentration in the air can vary, making managing your allergies especially challenging. Pull yourself away from the comforts of home and things can get down right ugly. So when traveling, how do you allergy-proof your trip? And how would you attain peace of mind when you’re traveling with allergies?
Over 50 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. Pollen alongside mold and dust, are some of the main triggers. Of course travelers will pick up these allergens outdoors, but often they are found in hotel rooms as well. PURE makes sensitive business travelers breathe easier with hypoallergenic hotel rooms.
Allergists will often recommend that people with asthma or highly sensitive respiratory systems be in an environment where the micro particle level is lowered. According to the Asthma & Allergy Foundation, the equivalent of 1.0 to 1.5 million small particles per cubic foot of air is an acceptable threshold. The PURE Promise is that the average count in one of it’s certified hotel room is capped at 0.5 million small particles per cubic foot of air. Which means, given reasonable conditions, a PURE Room will provide a quality of air at least twice as good as that recommended for asthma patients.
“At home, an individual has the luxury of time and experimentation to create an environment that can keep allergies at bay,” says PURE Solutions, North America, CEO Brian Brault. “But when on the road, one is at the mercy of pollutants, pollen count and other irritating elements.” This can be challenging for sensitive travelers on an important business trip or traveling with family members who have respiratory challenges. While medication can battle nasal congestion, sneezing and general discomfort, prevention is always better than having to treat an allergic reaction.
It’s a breath of fresh air that PURE Rooms are becoming available in hundreds of hotels. Found in every full service Hyatt in North America, as well as many Hilton brands, Marriott brands, other chains and independent hotels. These partners are all offering special hotel rooms equipped with PURE’s patented purification process.PURE Rooms includespecial medical grade air filters, hypoallergenic bed encasements and additional technology to reduce allergens in the air and on surfaces.
How does PURE do it? The patented 7-Step Purification Process starts with deep cleaning and disinfecting the room’s air conditioning unit which then holds an all natural tea tree oil cartridge to minimize germs and contaminants on an ongoing basis. The, walls, furniture, carpet and upholstery are deep cleaned and sanitized to eliminate bacteria and mold. After which, the room undergoes a one time shock treatment to kill any remaining living organisms and any lingering odors. Once the room is brought to this sanitary state, a bacteriostatic barrier called PURE Shield is applied on all surfaces to make it nearly impossible for viruses and bacteria to survive. A critical step is to place a state of the art air purification unit, listed by the FDA as a Class II medical device, in the room which constantly filters and kills contaminants in the air. Finally, the mattresses and pillows are encased in a special hypo-allergenic covers to protect the guest against dust mites and related allergen triggers.
The PURE Room is the perfect combination of luxury and comfort. It lets you focus on your agenda without worrying about your allergic sensitivity and discomfort.
