Minimize Guest Inconvenience After Hotel Fire Damage in East Lake
Plan Ahead to Reduce the Risk of a Fire
Fire damage is a nightmare for any hotel owner. As well as the frightening potential for injury or loss of life, there is also the cost of replacing damaged items, and profit loss from closing down during cleanup. Another concern for hoteliers is the damage to reputation after a fire. Inconvenienced guests are unlikely to return to your East Lake hotel, or recommend it to a friend.
The best way to preserve your resorts’ reputation is minimizing guest inconvenience after hotel fire damage in East Lake. Disrupting guests as little as possible is important. After all, the people staying in your establishment are looking for a fun and enjoyable Florida holiday. Even in the event of a fire, you must do all you can to give your customers a good experience.
SERVPRO recommends doing everything you can to minimize the risk of a blaze. Make sure you have sprinkler systems and smoke alarms fitted, and appropriate extinguishers throughout the building. Train your staff to respond quickly to emergencies and to tackle small blazes if it is safe to do so.
Plan carefully, so you know what to do when a fire happens. Think about escape routes, gathering points, and alternate arrangements for guests who cannot return to their room. SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Plan helps with this. The app makes it easy to assess your hotel, plan a course of action in the event of a fire, and make sure all staff knows what to do and whom to contact.
