According to Dr.Nidhi Ghildayal m PhD at Unniversity of Minnesota School of Public Health, "Chairs can often be made of hard-to-clean fabric and upholstery, and definitely are not cleaned in the same manner as sheets and towels, which are consistently thrown into the laundry, "Often, stains on chairs are dabbed and rubbed until they are removed, but other germs that are not noticeable to the eye remain." Dr.Nidhi is an infectious disease specialist.


Well that’s pretty true who knows that the chairs have been used for. People use hotel chairs to throw their dirty laundry, shocks, towels which can carry germs, beg bugs since hotels being a very high traffic area. One thing is for sure that chairs are not as well cleaned as bed sheets and upholstery irrespective of hotels star rating.


"Sanitation—which is more regularly done in other specific parts of the room—differs a great deal from cleaning, and germs can easily move around during this process and end up on the hotel chair,Pathogens can travel between rooms and areas of the room easily when staff is cleaning." Dr.Ghildayal said.


Don’t consider us being skeptical on traveling but we want you to consider this point whenever you check inside any hotel room because HEALTH IS WEALTH after all.
