Concerned with hotel water use? Hotel owners should do everything they can to keep water usage at a minimum, both for the environment and for their bottom line.
Some easy ways to keep your water use in check are to install motion sensors on any restroom sinks, as well as installing low flow shower heads and toilets. In your hotel kitchen, educate your staff about the importance of reducing water consumption. Install foot pedal sinks when possible, and encourage washing only full loads of dishes. In your dining room, consider offering water only by request. In your housekeeping department, ask your staff to only run full loads of laundry. Consider a “linen reuse” program, whereby sheets and towels are not washed automatically after each use. You can see how these approaches will save water, but also save you money in the long-term!
Excess water consumption may be happening outside your building(s) as well. Consider your landscaping. Make sure to only water early in the morning and late in the evening when the sun isn’t at it’s peak. Also, be sure your sprinklers aren’t leaking or broken. Lastly, use mulch to help lock in the moisture around your plantings. These tips should bring down your hotel water use!
