Experts reveal a terrifying consequence. If you get into trouble, it’s too late to regret it.
Why shouldn’t the housekeeping card be stuck on the doorknob? Experts analyze the reasons.
In order to avoid having to repack your luggage every day and move to another hotel, you sometimes spend a few more nights in the same hotel.
So when you want to clean the room, it will be the cleaning tag hanging on the doorknob, convenient to inform the housekeeping staff to come in to clean.
However, this is a convenient design, fear to blame the upper body! Recently, some foreign experts warned that hanging a cleaning sign on the door handle is like telling a burglar that “no one is in the room now.” Therefore, if the room really needs cleaning, you should take a smarter approach.
According to the report, Michele Bennett, general manager of the US security alarm business company “ADT”, warned, “While you may think leaving a service sign on your hotel room door is helpful, leaving a “please clean” sign may notify potential thieves that your room is empty.”
Michelle Bennett also warned that he had seen on the LockPickingLawyer channel on YouTube that cleaning cards can even be used as a door-breaking tool, inserting the card into the crack of the door to pry open the door.
Therefore, Michelle Bennett advises that if a room needs cleaning, it is recommended to call reception directly and ask them. If you want to be extra safe, you can also stay in your hotel room during cleaning.
