Polyester – the FACTS

Posted by Elizabeth Dowen · May 26, 2020

In this complicated world we live in, the materials used in mattresses are no exception. There are many good reasons why you just can’t say natural materials are good and manmade are bad. Most poisons, neurotoxins and allergens are virtually all natural! If you look at any material hard enough you will find pros and cons.

The world’s most important resource is water. Cotton, for instance, uses up to 14,000 litres of water to grow one kilo of cotton, and uses pesticides. Sheep (wool) create a methane problem whilst wool (both organic or non-organic) is also treated with insecticides. Some people also have allergies to wool and plant material.

Most importantly, when it comes to the Circular Economy (i.e. everything should be recyclable if possible, to save the world resources), natural fibres can be found wanting as most natural fibres can only be recycled once, mainly made into a felt. That is why many natural fibres have a higher carbon footprint.

There are sites on the internet that will support anything natural and condemn anything manmade. This is not the way forward. Natural materials have their positive attributes, and this is the same for manmade fibres.

One of the most important manmade fibre is polyester, which is one of the oldest and simplest polymers. Polyester fibre was developed in 1941 and has been mixed with cotton and worn next to the skin for generations. For decades it’s been used in fleeces and worn by walkers and climbers for its excellent venting and drying properties. These properties make it ideal for a mattress where ventilation and breathability are vital. Recycled polyester fibre also has the lowest off-gas of almost any fibre and very rarely causes any form of allergic reaction. It is also one of the important materials used in the Circular Economy as it can be recycled many times.

From a water use point of view, it only takes one litre of water to make one kilo of polyester unlike cotton. It is made from a petrochemical base and, one could argue, oil is also from a bio background.

At Cottonsafe® we believe the most important rule here is each material must be judged separately and assessed on both its advantages and disadvantages. By using our unique polyester covers on our Vegan range it allows us to get rid of kilos of pesticide-linked flame retardants, with all their problems of toxicity and skin permeability. And importantly, polyester within the mattress also allows us to get rid of foam which, again, contains a HUGE amount of toxic fire retardant chemicals – up to 20% of the weight of a mattress! This is our passion.

Front office department includes − Front Desk Uniformed services Concierges Front Office Accounting System Private Branch Exchange (PBX), a private telephone network used within an organization Basic Responsibilities of Front Office Department Following are the most basic responsibilities a front office can handle. Creating guest database Handling guest accounts Coordinating guest service Trying to sell a service Ensuring guest satisfaction Handling in-house communication through PBX Front Office Operations There are two categories of Front Office Operations − Front-House Operations These operations are visible to the guests of the hotel. The guests can interact and see these operations, hence, the name Front-House operations. Few of these operations include − Interacting with the guests to handle request for an accommodation. Checking accommodation availability and assigning it to the guest. Collecting detail information while guest registration. Creating a guest’s account with the FO accounting system. Issuing accommodation keys to the guest. Settling guest payment at the time of check-out. Back-House Operations Front Office staff conducts these operations in the absence of the guests or when the guest’s involvement is not required. These operations involve activities such as − Determining the type of guest (fresh/repeat) by checking the database. Ensuring preferences of the guest to give a personal touch to the service. Maintaining guest’s account with the accounting system. Preparing the guest’s bill. Collecting the balance amount of guest bills. Generating reports. Guest Cycle in Hotel Generally, a guest’s interaction with the hotel is divided into the following four sequential phases − Pre-arrival It is the stage when the customer is planning to avail an accommodation in the hotel. In this first stage, the customer or the prospective guest enquires about the availability of the desired type of accommodation and its amenities via telephonic call or an e-mail. The customer also tries to find out more information about the hotel by visiting its website. At the hotel end, the front office accounting system captures the guest’s information such as name, age, contact numbers, probable duration of stay for room reservation and so on. Arrival The front office reception staff receives the guest in the reception. The porters bring in the guest luggage. For the guest with confirmed reservation, the front office clerk hands over a Guest Registration Card (GRC) to the guest and requests the guest to fill in personal information regarding the stay in the hotel. The clerk then registers the guest in the database thereby creating a guest record and a guest account along with it. Later, the clerk hands over a welcome kit and keys of the accommodation. After the procedure of registration, the guest can start occupying the accommodation. Occupancy During occupancy, a front office accounting system is responsible for tracking guest charges against his/her purchases from the hotel restaurants, room service, bar, or any outgoing telephone calls made via the hotel’s communication systems. The front office staff is responsible to manage and issue the right keys of the accommodations to the right guests. On guests’ request, the staff also makes arrangement for transportation, babysitting, or local touring while the guest is staying in the hotel. Guest Cycle in Hotel Departure During guest departure, the front office accounting system ensures payment for goods and services provided. If a guest’s bill is not completely paid, the balance is transferred from guest to non-guest records. When this occurs, collection becomes the responsibility of the back office accounting division. At the time of guest departure, the front office staff thanks the guest for giving an opportunity to serve and arrange for handling luggage. In addition, if the guest requires airport or other drop service, the front office bell desk fulfils it.
