Hotel Room

A hotel room is full of risk for hygiene for guests who are female according to new research from a leading online travel safety site

January 16, 2013 – A hotel room is full of risk for hygiene for guests who are female according to new research from a leading online travel safety site. Close to 20% of female guests at hotels said, they suffer from some form of illness while staying at a hotel. That underscores the need for hotels to increase the bar on cleaning standards everywhere including inside the hotel room.

Nearly half of the business travelers staying in hotels are women and hotels have had to change to make sure the women’s needs are met. However, 60% of women polled said that the most important part for them was the price of the hotel, with overall cleanliness not being that much of a concern.

The online site Check Safety First has a Room Check system that monitors hygiene in the room scientifically. The site said that woman had to be more aware of the risk to their health in hotel rooms, as hotels are failing to meet sufficient standards. A new site in the UK (Room-check.co.uk) provides hotel users with the latest hygiene in rooms from hotels with consistently high scores.

When staying in a hotel certain things should be checked to ensure better the rooms are clean. A recent study said that the most hygienic area of the hotel room was the bathroom.

Close to 80% of women however like to eat while sitting on their bed, but the report says that area is one of the dirtiest areas in a hotel room. Mattresses and their pads are rarely changed by hotels therefore a large number of hotel guests could have left behind potentially harmful germs and bacteria.

Close to 98% of women guests watch television while in their hotel room. That makes the remote control very dirty, as the hotel cleans them. The area were coffee is made in the room is also very dirty.

Sixty-five percent of women use room service when traveling and that too can create other types of hygiene risks.
