Hotels, Guest Houses and B & Bs are popular places that many different people frequent. Lots of us love to take family holidays, weekends away and now have breaks all year round. For the owners and managers of the Hotels, Guest Houses and B & Bs, keeping the premises clean and in good condition is extremely important if they want to remain in business.
These days this is even more important, because when people stay in them, not only will the guests be concerned about their hygiene and safety, but they may even take photos and publish reviews! 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 as negative reviews can deal a devastating blow to premises in the hospitality business.
To help you make sure that your establishment is well-kept and maintains its appealing status to the community and guests, here are a few tips that will definitely come in handy!
Cleanliness always starts with the management
Hotels, even the smallest ones, come with a service and maintenance team. They are paid to make sure that each room is cleaned – from the sheets, the toilet, through to every nook and cranny. However, it’s not possible for the team to keep everything perfect.
Therefore, it’s the responsibility of the owner and the manager of the hotel to train staff to be more disciplined when it comes to cleanliness. If the management is careless and they don’t take time to communicate with the service and maintenance crew then who knows what might happen!
Set realistic expectations for certain areas of the hotel
No matter how hard the cleaners and maintenance teams try, there will always be spaces that will not get thoroughly cleaned. Owners and managers need to simply stress which areas are more important than others.
An example of this would be the hotel room and its bathroom. Visitors will always be more mindful of how clean their bedrooms and bathrooms are. Special attention also needs to be given to the areas that guests frequent often as well. This is because these areas are often crowded and busy, so it takes extra time and effort to keep everything up to scratch in terms of cleanliness.
Always invest in a professional cleaning spree
It’s often 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.
These include: air filters, heavy carpets and curtains and even mattresses as they 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 perfect and hygienically kept.
