Nothing endangers profits for a hotel or motel more than high vacancy rates. This means hospitality managers must be attentive to any situations that could make travelers head to competitors’ lodging instead. The plethora of guest review websites these days is a bit of a double-edged sword. If you get bad reviews, it keeps other savvy travelers from booking a reservation. However, you can also use those reviews to get a jump on problems you might not have realized otherwise.
For example, reviews that note odd odors or the air conditioning didn’t work should alert you that you may have mold. They might even mention seeing mold, but hopefully your cleaning and maintenance staff will tell you about that way before a guest has the chance to see it. The bottom line, however, is taking care of mold remediation before you get reviews talking about it.
An excellent practice is to have a mold remediation professional handle routine mold inspections and testing to be sure you catch mold as quickly as possible. A small colony is easier to resolve than one that has had the opportunity to grow and potentially cause damage to the building or contents. You also don’t want to run the risk of having mold cause respiratory illnesses in your staff, resulting in excess absenteeism or a medical claim.
