The 3 Best Ways Your Hotel Can Beat the Winter Sorrows

Living with snow and ice in the winter is never fun, unless you are a skier or a snowmobiler. For the rest of us it means a lot of ice, cold, and snow. It also means more work to keep your hotel safe protecting people from slipping or damage from snow melting. These three tips will keep your hotel ahead of the game, and the weather, by ensuring a safe stay for guests and a well-maintained property to avoid unwarranted repairs and renovations.

1. Keep the drainage working
Keep your downspouts and drains clear of ice and snow so water can continue to drain away from the property. This will ensure your property is not affected by flooding waters and keeps guests happy and dry.

2. Snow removal and salting entryways and walkways
Slips, trips, and falls are on no one’s list of a good time. As a business that has many people coming and going at all times of the day, you will want to be sure you are on top of keeping all walkways, entryways, and parking lots clear of snow and ice. Then add a layer of salt to prevent slipping and falling. Keep your guests and insurance provider happy all in one.

3. Winter maintenance log record
With all the hard work going toward keeping your hotel free of ice and snow, you will want to keep a record of it. Keep a record log of the time, place, and work being done with a signature of the employee executing the work. This way you can easily show what area was shoveled, plowed, or salted and when with ease.
