Insights and tips on how to protect your inn or bed & breakfast, giving you and your guests peace of mind.
Tornadoes are natural disasters that can leave devastating impacts on affected homes and communities. That’s why it’s important to know exactly what to do before, during and after a tornado strikes in order for you and your guests to stay safe at your inn.
Mold not only damages your property, but it can also cause serious health complications after long-term exposure. Not to mention, mold can slow your business down and even result in lawsuits. Use these prevention tips to keep mold out of your inn.
Keeping outdoor walking surfaces clear of ice in the winter is a crucial practice at many inns. Not only does ice removal offer aesthetic benefits, but it can also help keep you, your coworkers and your guests protected from the risk of slips and trips on-site.
Frozen water pipes can be a major concern for inns during cooler months. Pipes that are exposed to extreme cold can burst when water expands; this includes outdoor hose bibs, water sprinkler lines and water supply pipes in basements, attics and garages. That’s why it’s essential that your bed and breakfast’s pipes are adequately protected when temperatures drop.
Nature is unpredictable, so don’t wait to prepare your inn for the harshest season. Fortunately, simple inspections and improvements to your bed and breakfast property can prevent costly winter-related insurance claims.
Natural disasters can have severe impacts not only on your physical property, but they may also directly affect your business operations (including weeks without guests or rescheduling major events) and lengthy, costly repairs.

Review these tips for spring maintenance to avoid any unwelcome surprises.
