HONOLULU, HI – The Hilton Hawaiian Village announced that it has hired a firm to strip all furniture, soft goods, and other items from all 453 guestrooms of the Kalia Tower, where indoor mold was discovered (The News, Sept. 2, 2002).

According to hotel management, “Items to be permanently removed from the rooms include ‘hard goods’ (furniture such as beds, desks, dressers, armoires, and nightstands) and ‘soft goods’ (such as mattresses, sheets, pillowcases, and towels).” Wallpaper, drapes, and carpeting also will be removed from each guestroom.

Clock radios, TVs, and other metal or glass items also will be removed, stated Hilton management; a decision will be made later whether or not any of these items may be returned.

Items permanently removed will be taken to local landfills and/or incinerators for disposal in accordance with environmental regulations, hotel management said.

The hotel hired Dick Pacific Construction Ltd., Honolulu, to manage the overall removal/disposal process. This step of the remediation is estimated to take six to eight weeks.
