Hotel Resorts have a significant responsibility to provide a safe and comfortable environment for their guests.

Hotel Resorts have a significant responsibility to provide a safe and comfortable environment for their guests. One crucial aspect of this responsibility is ensuring that the risk of fire is mitigated, particularly given the severity and frequency of fires in commercial establishments. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), between 2013 and 2017, there were an average of 3,700 fires in hotels and motels each year, causing an annual average of 100 injuries, 12 fatalities, and $127 million in direct property damage. By using Neroshield to treat textiles, tapestries, computer server rooms, kitchens, and public areas, hotel resorts can significantly reduce the likelihood of fires and associated damages. Neroshield’s advanced flame-resistant technology not only offers unparalleled protection, but also preserves the aesthetics and functionality of these materials, ensuring that guests continue to enjoy their stay without compromising on safety.

In addition to the human cost, the financial implications of fires in hotel resorts can be devastating. A study conducted by the U.S. Fire Administration found that commercial establishments, including hotels and resorts, accounted for 8.2% of fires between 2009 and 2018, with an estimated annual loss of $2.6 billion. Implementing Neroshield across various areas within hotel resorts can drastically minimize the risk of fires, saving lives and protecting valuable investments. The proactive adoption of Neroshield’s innovative fire-resistant treatments demonstrates a commitment to guest safety and can even lead to reduced insurance premiums, as insurers recognize the efforts made by hotels to minimize fire-related risks. Ultimately, by investing in Neroshield, hotel resorts not only fulfill their obligation to protect guests and staff, but also ensure the long-term financial sustainability of their business.


While we may think of guests as being the primary reason that fires start in hotels or motels, many fires actually start for other reasons. According to a 2015 report by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the leading causes of structural fires in hotels and motels include:

  • Cooking equipment. Nearly half of all fires originate in the kitchen. These fires account for 8 percent of direct property damage and over 25 percent of civilian (non-firefighter) injuries.
  • Heating equipment. Nine percent of fires originated in the building’s heating equipment, causing 16 percent of overall property damage annually.
  • Clothes dryers or washers. Laundry equipment caused 8 percent of fires, but 12 percent of civilian injuries—a relatively high rate.
  • Smoking. While cigarettes, pipes, matches, lighters, and other smoking materials only accounted for 8 percent of fires in the hospitality trade, these fires caused 75 percent of civilian deaths.
  • Electrical and lighting equipment. Although only 5 percent of fires were caused by electrical equipment, hotel wiring and lighting problems were responsible for over 25 percent of direct property damage losses.
  • Damage prevention. Insurers often require policyholders to mitigate the effects of damage done to their properties. While the extent of a business owner’s responsibilities may vary, the owner should take reasonable steps to prevent any additional damage to the insured property. Actions may include closing off damaged areas, installing beams to prevent structural collapse, making temporary repairs, and using fans or pumps to dry out the building after the fire has been extinguished.
  • Each year, there are an estimated 3,900 hotel and motel fires that cause 15 deaths, 150 injuries, and $100 million in property losses.
  • Cooking equipment, careless smoking and faulty equipmentare the leading causes of fires in the hospitality industry but with the proper fire equipment and staff training, these fires can be contained or stopped before they take hold.
