One hotel in San Antonio, TX has chosen to stay open despite ongoing mold remediation projects. We don’t know the type of mold that is being remediated, but some experts would say it is not a great idea to have hotel guests around an ongoing mold project. The hotel in question was undergoing renovations when the construction workers discovered the mold, turning it into a mold remediation project. The workers have been seen in full protective suits, which the hotel says are simply standard operating procedure for this type of project.
The hotel also says that guests of the place are not at risk for anything from this mold problem, however, one employee working on the construction project who wanted to stay anonymous said that it was the most irresponsible project he had ever worked on. He also said that the hotel asked the workers to not put on their Hazmat suits until they were in the work area, so as to not scare off the patrons. Clearly he was of the belief that the customers needed to be more separated from the mold problems to avoid issues with their health. It is especially poignant because you never know what type of people will come into your business. Some people have mold allergies or asthma, which could be made worse by exposure to mold. Other people like those with immune system deficiencies and the elderly could be more susceptible to illnesses from mold.
Businesses in Florida face the same issues and tough decisions when they have mold problems. Do you stay open or do you close and lose money? It’s a tough one to make. Depending on the type of mold that you have, however, it might be a better idea to shutter your doors during the remediation process, especially if you have toxic black mold. However, the decision is ultimately up to the business owners.
