WESTON, Fla., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dirty hotel rooms cause thousands of travelers discomfort and illness every year. Travel hounds who constantly worry about whether a hotel has bedbugs or if towels are really clean are offered a new solution to their worries in the form of the Hotel Inspector UV LED Stain Finder. A compact and lightweight ultraviolet (UV) flashlight, this easy-to-pack device provides essential peace of mind for travelers of all types.

Now on the shelves at select major retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond and Walgreens, the Hotel Inspector UV LED Stain Finder uses the same basic technology that forensic science technicians use to investigate crime scenes. When swept over a bedspread, carpet or counter, the Hotel Inspector reveals a wide variety of cleanliness issues ranging from bed beg residue, blood residue, urine, saliva, feces, vomit and semen. Because different substances shine different colors under UV light due to their phosphorous content, travelers can even identify the type of contamination or stain present in a room. The website sheknows.com has praised the Hotel Inspector, calling it one of the 20 top gifts for business travelers. The Hotel Inspector is offered at a suggested retail price of $14.99 and is small enough to fit in a purse or pocket.

Gilda Batista, creator of the Hotel Inspector, found inspiration for the device while decorating for a Halloween haunted house. When she began using UV lights, the Florida teacher realized that their applications went far beyond holiday decorating and forensic science. Shocked by what she found when she ran a UV light over a hotel room, Batista decided to create the Hotel Inspector to serve the needs of busy travelers. She's delighted to find that the device is also being purchased by hoteliers for in-house use. Batista lauds this practice, saying "that shows me they really genuinely care about the cleanliness of their hotel and want their guests to have the best experience possible." 

The Hotel Inspector is also the first consumer-level product that puts the power to decide if a hotel is clean enough in the hands of guests. By changing the balance of power, Batista hopes that the Hotel Inspector can be used to determine if cruise lines and hoteliers are keeping their cleanliness promises. Travel Channel's popular show Hotel Impossible highlighted how the device can be used by hoteliers to inspire guest confidence and boost business. A solution that meets the needs of both travelers and hoteliers, the Hotel Inspector is currently available in the U.S., Japan and Canada and is offered by major online retailer Amazon and at www.hotelinspector.biz.

Hotel Inspector TM is headquartered in Weston, Florida and was founded by Gilda Batista. The company sells both to individuals consumers, retailers at wholesale prices and to distributors. Hotel Inspector actively seeks new business partnerships.
