The Park Inn by Radisson in Manchester has adopted a new approach to hygiene by becoming the first hotel in the UK to use a probiotic hygiene and cleaning system.
The new system utilises the air conditioning in the hotel and pumps out good bacteria which “substantially reduces the levels of bad bacteria, as well as the amount of yeast and mould.”
The Manchester city centre hotel has implemented two systems on a trial, which sees the integration of the Pro-B Air system and Pro-B Cleaning into its regime with each component reinforcing the hotel’s commitment to its green credentials and energy efficient running operation.
The probiotic material that is used in the Pro-B Air system is Chrisal PIP Environmental Enhancer, a product that was recognized by Allergy UK and was awarded with an Allergy Friendly Product Award earlier this year.
General manager of the hotel, Neil Raw, said the company is “always looking at ways of reducing its carbon footprint.”
“By using the Pro-B system, this solution really puts our commitment to the corporate ‘Think Planet’ campaign to the fore. The results so far have certainly impressed the team and our guests with a marked difference to the overall environment, with odours eliminated from the kitchen and gym areas for example.
“This benefit transcends across the hotel, with bedrooms, corridors and public areas continually exuding a ‘fresh’ and ‘clean’ smell and that stability was clear within just a few weeks of implementing the new systems.
The manager thinks the trial could resolve a lot of hotel issues. “While this trial is in its early stages, we are confident that by addressing the issues all hotels face at the source to dissipate the particles which prevents mould accumulating,” he added.
“We are providing a superior, more hygienic guest experience.”
The hotel has also adopted the Pro-B Cleaning system, whereby housekeeping has been equipped with products that combine action of green detergents, enzymes and probiotic bacteria – resulting in a deep, microscopic clean, prevention and elimination of odours and safe microbial environment.
