Global hotel brands commit to room check module for a forensic approach to pest control

Check Safety First has announced that 60 big name hotels including  Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Barcelo and Hard Rock Hotels have signed up to the RoomCheck auditing system, following the successful launch of its room hygiene module in January.

This comes at a time when hotels are demanding a more scientific approach to maintaining cleanliness and ensuring standards are consistent throughout.

Mark Harrington, CEO at Check Safety First, said: “Hotel rooms with poor hygiene standards are health risks and can lead to the transmission of infections such as staphylococcus aureus, E. Coli and norovirus, to name a few. Hotels tend to think they are on top of hygiene but even the most luxurious ones can slip up. This can not only damage a hotel’s reputation but lead to potential lawsuits.”

RoomCheck uses forensic techniques such as ultraviolet lights that illuminate stains and problems associated with pests. Monthly bedrooms and bathrooms audits also ensure that no hygiene issue is left unidentified.

The module is part of Check Safety First’s E-Cristal risk management system which helps protect some of the world’s leading hotels from risks such as food safety, hygiene, legionella control, fire and general safety.
