Summer is right around the corner and families across the U.S. are gearing up for summer family vacations. That means now is the right time to start preparing your hotel for the influx of travelers that will be booking rooms in just a couple of months.
Here are four things you can do to ensure your hotel is safe, secure, and ready for the summer rush this year.
- Prepare your staff. The first step toward making sure your hotel is ready for a lot of guests is to prepare your staff. This means hiring more people to manage and care for guests. It also means providing summer training to help everyone stay on the ball when there’s a lot going on.
- Conduct seasonal HVAC maintenance. The last thing you want this summer is for your air conditioning to go out when you need it most. It’s recommended to have your HVAC system inspected twice a year, once during the summer and once during the fall. If you haven’t already called your HVAC services, be sure to do it before the summer rush.
- Make sure your fire protection systems are up-to-date. Summer and winter are the seasons you need to worry about the most when it comes to fires. Most fires are electrical and you can easily overload your system with air conditioning and heating systems. That said, make sure your hotel’s fire protection systems are up and running correctly. This includes your smoke alarms, sprinklers, and fire extinguishers.
- Have your generator ready. Sometimes an overloaded electrical system doesn’t cause a fire but blows out instead. This can be caused by a power surge or a storm. Have your generator ready just in case to make sure your guests stay comfortable and your food stays fresh even when heavy rain hits and your power goes out.
