Hotel rooms are places with a large flow of people. There are different bacteria and viruses everywhere, especially used bedding. There will be a lot of dust mite bacteria on it. Therefore, the hygiene of hotel rooms has become very important, which is related to the health of every lodger.
The viruses and bacteria in the hotel are everywhere and exist for a long time.In real conditions, the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus, or its genetic material (RNA), have been detected on surfaces in a number of studies conducted in healthcare settings (3–22) and in the community (14,23–28). It is generally reported that the environment is most contaminated near infected individuals and on the surfaces they frequently touch (4–6,23). However, no research teams have been able to cultivate the virus when present on surfaces in non-experimental settings (5,9,13,19,24,29).
Depending on the surfaces examined, different authors have reported a varying duration from a few hours to a few days in which the virus was cultivable in experimental conditions. The duration was longer on stainless steel (48 hours) and plastic (72 hours), and shorter on cardboard (24 hours) and copper (4 hours) (30). The virus remained cultivable for less than 24 hours on bank notes and clothing (32). Liu et al. (2020) have reported that SARS‑CoV‑2 remained cultivable for seven days on plastic, stainless steel, glass, ceramic, wood, latex gloves, and surgical masks, but that no virus could be cultivated from cotton clothing after four days or from paper after five days (33). The virus therefore generally appears to survive longer on smooth surfaces than on porous surfaces in a lab (31,33).
Preservation of the virus on surfaces depends on a number of factors including environmental conditions like temperature and relative humidity. In outdoor environments, preservation is generally affected by wind speed, precipitation, and the intensity of ultraviolet (UV) rays (34). With regard to UV rays, laboratory experiments have indicated that the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus has a very quick inactivation rate in aerosols in sunlight, with a half-life of less than six minutes and 90% of the virus inactivated within 20 minutes at varied sunlight intensities (35). UVC radiation has also been demonstrated as effective at inactivating SARS‑CoV‑2 in a virus suspension (36).
The covid-19 pandemic also exists in the hotel,the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still recommends staying home for your own safety as well as for others. But if you do decide to travel, local laws permitting, you’ll want to take as many safety precautions as possible. This includes sanitization, even if the hotel you’re staying in has stringent protocols in place.
Below, we review the steps you should take upon booking and arriving at your hotel room.
1.Communicate with your hotel and confirm cleaning procedures.
Before booking, contact your hotel, and don’t be afraid to ask questions about the property’s COVID-19 cleaning protocols.Request their sanitization and disinfection policies: Are temperature checks mandatory for everyone coming in and out? How frequently are employees tested? If the hotel isn’t disinfecting rooms thoroughly, allowing new guests to enter a room that was occupied less than 24 hours ago could be hazardous. Airbnb, for example, recommends a minimum of 24 hours.“Ideally, you need something that kills pathogens in the air because the virus hangs in the air for long periods of time.In addition, surfaces, floors, and porous surfaces such as curtains, fabrics, and couches need to be accounted for and disinfected.
1. Sanitize your luggage.
The cleaning process should begin before you ever enter your hotel room, especially if you flew. Don’t forget to wipe down or spray your luggage. Remember that luggage is handled by numerous people and is stacked, so failure to wipe or spray your luggage is just inviting coronavirus room service.
2. Bring your own items.
Bring your own cups or water bottles [for your] hotel room.Make sure to have your own hand sanitizer, masks, and wipes, though some hotels have been known to provide them for guests.
3. Open a window for ventilation.
4. Sanitize your room.
Bacteria and viruses have a great destructive effect on our body. In order to prevent all kinds of bacteria and viruses from entering our body and ensure our own health, we must pay attention to the sterilization and disinfection of indoor rooms, especially hotel rooms. As a place for us to sleep, every item must be strictly disinfected, which is very key and most important.Basically, the less you touch throughout the process, the better. Anything that you cannot avoid touching should be disinfected prior to making any contact. I recommend disinfecting your shoes and clothes before walking into your hotel room each time you leave and have been in public.
5. Wash your hands.
In the face of various viruses, the above methods are only ordinary sterilization and disinfection methods. In order to fundamentally solve the problem of the spread of bacteria and viruses, we must have professional air sterilization equipment to achieve more obvious results.
