Non-Smoking Hotels

A housekeeper cleans a Bryant AR hotel room When someone smokes in a non-smoking hotel room, a deep cleaning is required before the room can be re-rented.

A majority of hotels have made the move to become non-smoking over the past decade. Other than designated smoking areas outdoors, hotel guests are not allowed to light up inside their rooms. Should they do it anyway, they often face stiff penalties from the hotel chain, who will likely charge a hefty cleaning fee to get the smell out of not just the room, but the HVAC system. This fine can range from $100-$500.

Depending on the strength of the smoke smell, a variety of techniques are used to remove the tobacco smell from a hotel room. The room is basically stripped, then the walls and ceilings are washed. If the room has carpet, it is shampooed. Curtains and drapes are dry cleaned and lampshades are replaced. It's a time-involved effort that costs the hotel revenue since that room has to be taken out of available inventory to be scrubbed clean.
