Whilst many industries experienced challenging times over the past few years due to the Covid-19 pandemic; the hospitality, hotel and travel industry suffered incredible hardship after being ground to a halt during the numerous lockdowns the world faced. Strategies to flatten the Covid-19 curve such as social distancing, stay-at-home orders, travel and mobility restrictions resulted in an unprecedented battle for the hotel and hospitality industry to stay afloat. A number of these establishments utilised the time by turning their attention to their interiors and refurbishment projects, however as we all know some didn’t weather the storm and were forced to permanently close.

Without sounding cynical, Covid is here to stay, as it is constantly mutating into new variants that we are forced to deal with. There are also a list of continuous other threats from the spread of an ever growing list of germs and viruses. It goes without saying that establishments in the hospitality industry have significantly ramped up their sanitising routines since the pandemic in order to keep their guests and staff safe, however despite something appearing clean it can still have harmful bacteria on it. For example, according to studies one of the most germ ridden items in a hotel room is a TV remote.
