While the words Spring Break may strike joy in the hearts of students around the nation, they likely strike a very different chord in the hearts of facility managers everywhere.
Especially for those who run hotels in Spring Break hot spots.
Spring Break by the Numbers
Every year, between 1.5 and 2 million students travel for Spring Break, mostly to Florida and Texas, with the highest concentration of visitors converging on the Daytona Beach area.
On average spring breakers consume ten alcoholic drinks per day, with between 30%-40% claiming to be drunk "throughout the entire day." 60% of spring breakers report run-ins with the police many of these involving damaged property.
It doesn't take much imagination to predict the results of such reckless behavior on the spaces Spring Breakers inhabit during their visits such as hotels, restaurants and other public spacers. Facility managers expecting to be affected by this phenomenon should be shrewd both in preparation and recovery.
What This Means for Facility Managers
Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.
Knowing the scenarios that arise during the course of party atmospheres, facility managers who oversee hotel and rental properties in Spring Break hot spots should do what they can to brace themselves for the inevitable.
To that end, they should consider installing protective guards along their vulnerable corners and edges. This simple step of preventative maintenance can save time, money, and frustration in the long run by keeping corners safe from accidental scratches, dents, and gouges.
