Returning A Marlborough Hotel Room To Non-Smoker Odor-Free Status
SERVPRO Remedies Odor Problems in Commercial Establishments in the Marlborough Area
As a hospitality and lodging provider, you want each of your guests to find comfort and relaxation in their Marlborough hotel room. You make a promise to guests that request a non-smoking room that their environment is free of the smell and residues associated with cigarettes while staying at your hotel. Our deodorization technicians and innovative equipment may be your answer.
When guests check into the non-smoking room your staff prepared for them, the success of any odor removal techniques used in your Marlborough hotel is on trial. If a previous guest ignored the signs and smoked in the room, your non-smoking customers may be upset at the lingering odor. Effective odor removal often requires trying many approaches until one works, and our OCT, odor control technicians, IICRC-certified crews are familiar with this process.
Upon arrival, SERVPRO’s crew lead assess the room or rooms that need odor removal. Although it may seem that the smell is airborne only, we seek out other, remediable sources. Furnishings and carpeting attract and hold the tiny particles of ash, tar, and other substances incompletely burned. We start with a thorough cleaning, including the upholstery and carpet using our commercial strength steam extractors and professional cleaning products.
Nicotine and other substances can stain walls and from there emit smells. Our crews wash walls with appropriate cleaners. SERVPRO might suggest repainting the walls and sealing wooden portions of furnishings and headboards to keep odor penetrating beneath these surfaces from vaporizing. Frequently each room has a separate heating and cooling system, and we also inspect and clean the vents and any ductwork to prevent the smoke smells from recirculating.
SERVPRO also can access resources that eliminate odors by changing the chemical composition of the minute particles floating in the air and embedded in surfaces and fixtures. One option is thermal fogging, a process where air cleaners combust in a heated chamber and then bond with and render smell-free the particles remaining in the room. Other resources include hydroxyl generators and other oxygenation systems. A form of UV light creates the hydroxyl radicals that then react with solid pollutants like cigarette smoke and help destroy them. These processes eliminate the odors, not just cover them up like most air fresheners.
Efficient and profitable management of your hotel requires all rooms possible are available, and SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to deodorize areas of your premises damaged by previous guests smoking in spaces designated “non-smoking.” Call for a consultation at (978) 486-9868.
