ARLINGTON, Texas -  Travelers to Arlington Texas can breathe a little easier, knowing Hilton Arlington Hotel has announced that they have become the first Hilton hotel in the city to introduce PURE Allergy Friendly Rooms. The Hilton is setting a new standard by introducing 15 new PURE rooms which create an allergy-friendly environment and remove up to 98% of bacteria and viruses. Travelers who suffer from allergies and asthma can now enjoy the cleanest, freshest air in their rooms and enjoy a more restful sleep during their stay.

Hilton Arlington is proud to be the first Hilton hotel in the entire Dallas / Fort Worth Area to offer the world's travelers an innovative guestroom experience where their stay will be ultra-comfortable, even if they have severe allergies or chemical sensitivities.

"The opening of our new PURE Rooms has created an excitement for our guests upon arrival to the hotel, and guests are calling me afterwards to ensure they get another PURE room during their next stay with us" said James Shandor, general manager of Hilton Arlington.

The PURE concept utilizes special purification techniques whereby each room is treated comprehensively to remove allergens and irritants from all surfaces, fabrics and air flow. The cutting-edge and rigorous conversion process designed by PURE Solutions ensures that air handling units are deeply cleaned and sanitized then equipped with the company's specially made Tea Tree Oil Cartridge. PURE Tea Tree Oil is an all natural antiseptic and disinfectant that maintains the sanitary conditions created during the initial conversion process. Soft surfaces are sanitized with PURE Clean to eliminate irritants and contaminants that can trigger allergies and cause discomfort. The room next undergoes a one-time shock treatment to kill any remaining living organisms and their associated irritants. A bacteriostatic barrier called PURE Shield is then applied to all surfaces to prevent the growth of bacteria.

To maintain these ideal conditions in the room, a state-of-the-art air purification system is installed, creating air quality that averages four times cleaner than the threshold necessary for asthma patients. This system is classified by the FDA as a Class II medical device. Special micro-fiber, hypo-allergenic pillow cases and mattress covers are used to reduce allergies triggered by dust mites.

"Statistically, one-third of travelers report having allergies or traveling with family members have allergic reactions. PURE is committed to offering the best air quality for any hotel guest, allergy sufferers or not," said Brian Brault, CEO of PURE Solutions. "We are proud to offer PURE rooms at the Hilton Arlington."
