The hospitality industry has been turned upside down by Covid-19 but it’s important to remember that it won’t be like this forever. Providing peace of mind to customers in a post-pandemic world could be the difference between a full restaurant and empty tables. In this blog we explore how a Pure Air Zone can entice customers back to restaurants and cafes alike.
There is always a solution to a problem
A chance to get out of the house and enjoy a few hours among friends or family, to catch up, to share stories old and new, to eat amazing food and perhaps enjoy a drink or two. These are just some of the things we have been missing over the past year and whilst the race for cafes and restaurants to adapt has seen a rise in takeaway and delivery, the relief with which many greeted the re-opening of our favourite establishments after the first wave means there’s hope for the hospitality industry. However, the current wave may mean it takes a little more to get customers back through the door. So how can restaurants ensure that they provide post-pandemic peace of mind?
Around 92% of pollutants in the air are too small to respond to traditional ventilation or gravity. These contaminants are best avoided as they include viruses, mould spores, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can cause all kinds of health problems down the line. With customers more wary of eating in confined spaces, how can a restaurant or cafe get rid of air contaminants and how can they make sure that the air is as clean as possible? After all, it’s not much of a night out if a customer can’t relax and enjoy their meal.
Beneficial for Business Owners and Customers
U-Earth helps in this regard with its Pure Air Zone solution. A Pure Air Zone is best explained with three words - protect, provide and promote. It protects staff and keeps the restaurant running. It provides customers with a safe dining experience and ensures kitchen carcinogens stay far away from tables. It promotes the safety of a restaurant and its sustainability credentials, offering them the ability to measure air quality in real time. It’s no surprise that a number of Michelin-starred restaurants are already signed up!
A suite of products designed to ensure peace of mind for both customer and restaurateur, the primary offering is an air purifying bioreactor that uses molecular charge attraction to attract all harmful charged particles which would never respond to gravity or ventilation. These contaminants are then neutralised within the system using active bacteria. Certified non-pathogenic and non-genetically modified, it’s an eco-friendly, biotech solution to air quality. And that’s not all. Because the air purifiers are plug-and-play, restaurateurs can move them to where they are needed most - should there be a small kitchen fire, the bioreactors can be placed to more efficiently reduce the contaminants and carcinogens in the air, while the environment can be monitored with U-Monitor’s air quality data, downloading air quality information every five minutes.
Staying in control of covid-19 and beyond
As well as this, the bioreactors are proven to capture SARS-CoV-2 particles; a simple test of the bioreactor can see whether a premises has been exposed to the virus responsible for Covid-19 within recent days. Quick and efficient - it gives the results in just 15 minutes - the technology puts the restaurant in control, with just one or two tests per week providing complete peace of mind for customers and absolute control for business owners. If restaurants can offer this service, it’s likely that the air will be filled with conversation rather than contaminants in no time!
It is vital that businesses get back up and running and no industry has suffered quite as much as hospitality. And this is just the starter (sorry). With restaurants including the likes of Cracco and Ristorante Berton on board, it is only a matter of time before many more restaurants and customers are able to benefit from a Pure Air Zone.
