Hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfasts are popular places that many different people frequent. Lots of us love to take family holidays, retreats and now have breaks all year round. For the owners of the hotels and guest houses keeping the premises clean and in good condition is important if they want to remain in business.
Nowadays the is even more important because when people stay in them, not only will guests be concerned about their hygiene and safety but they may even take photos to use later! First impressions are important especially in this industry and having good photos will certainly boost sales. However, having pictures shared online can be a double-edged sword; negative reviews can deal a devastating blow to one’s hospitality business.
To help you ensure that your establishment is well-kept and will maintain its appealing status to the community and even foreign customers, here are a few short tips that will definitely come in handy!
Cleanliness always starts with the management
Hotels, even the smallest, come with a service crew. They are paid to make sure that each room is cleaned – from the sheets, the loo and every nook and cranny. However, the team can never keep everything in line.
Therefore, it is the responsibility of the owner and the manager of the hotel to train employees to be more disciplined when it comes to cleanliness. If the management is careless and do not take time to inform and keep the place’s cleaning crew in check, it will be a fiasco of unmet expectations.
Set realistic expectations for certain areas of the hotel
No matter how hard and diligent the cleaners go about maintaining the establishment, there will always be spaces that will not get thoroughly cleaned. Owners and manager need to simply stress that there are areas that are more important than others.
An example would be the hotel rooms and its toilets. People will always be more mindful of how clean their bedrooms and toilets are. Also, ensure that areas where guests frequent are given more immediate attention as well. Because these areas are often crowded and busy, it takes extra time and effort to keep everything up to par in terms of cleanliness.
Always invest in a professional cleaning spree
It can be said that dedicated and hardworking employees will do their best to keep the building clean. But the truth is that there are certain areas and equipment as well as furniture that only professional cleaners can handle.
Air filters, heavy carpets and curtains and even mattresses need manpower and the right machinery to get a total wash-down to maintain a high standard of cleanliness. Regular consultation and scheduled cleaning with professional cleaners will do wonders in keeping the entire building delightfully well-kept.
