Mold Removal for Hotels
I’m sure almost everyone can attest to a hotel room that “smells like mildew”. Most hotel rooms in Florida will have some degree of musty/moldy odor to them. It does come from various causes. One is the humidity in the outside air, which can come in when guests leave doors open. Lack of ventilation, old furnishings and carpets can bring out even more issues.
We always suggest that hotels use blinds instead of curtains, an alternative to carpeting and avoid wallpaper, using mold resistant paint. Hotels must take preventative measures early on to minimize the potential for mold growth and preclude any type of litigation by unhappy guests. Many major hotels are undertaking mold-related cleanups and renovations and instituting regular maintenance protocols to curb microbial contamination. Make sure your employees are well versed in how to spot mold and give incentives when they give warnings about areas in your facility.
Hotels can face an increased risk of economic loss if the facility is forced to halt operations. Why risk cutting corners when it can really come back and bite you. Sometimes even the most well maintained hotel cannot prevent flooding or acts of nature. For buildings that are currently mold-free, the most effective method to prevent mold growth is moisture control. We want to help you and your employees make your hotel a safe environment for your guests. We urge you to give us a call if you have any questions or concerns about your hotel’s well-being.
