There’s nothing that speaks more favorably or appeals to customers more than a beautifully kept hotel. Keeping a hotel in tip-top shape not only includes caring for the rooms, but the common rooms as well. Cleaning and properly sanitizing guest rooms and guest areas ensures guests and employees remain in the hotel, and this is where a great hotel cleaning business can help.
Guests expect their rooms to be clean, neat and ready for them when they arrive. It’s a proven fact a hotel guest will make a decision about the cleanliness of their room—and the competence of the hotel cleaning service–within the first thirty seconds after they enter the room.
To make sure guests rooms are in the best condition possible, start by dusting the room with a microfiber cloth to catch as much of the dust and dirt as possible. Dust all furniture, baseboards, doors, and windows sills. Polish the furniture with a commercial polish, making sure to remove any spots or marks left by the previous guests. Strip the bedding, replace with clean sheets and remake the bed. Vacuum the carpets. Remove the trash and disinfect the television remotes.
Working as a successful hotel cleaning service, spray disinfectant across all bathroom surfaces and allow to remain a minimum of five minutes to disinfect the room. Wipe down the walls and counters. Use disinfectant and a scrub brush to clean the outside of the toilet—including where the toilets meets the floor—and use a toilet bowl cleaner and toilet brush to scrub the inside. Scrub the tub, tub walls and fixtures with a disinfectant. Wipe down the shower curtain. Clean the mirror and any windows with a vinegar solution to prevent streaking. Sweep, and then mop the floor with a disinfectant. Replace the toilet paper and stock the bathroom with toiletries, restock the mini bar.
Both staff and guests frequent the common areas which include restrooms, pools, fitness facilities, restaurants and lobbies and concierge counters. Using best hotel cleaning practices and a dusting and then a disinfecting cloth, wipe down furniture and window sills, counters and walls. Vacuum the carpets, sweep the floors, and polish any tile or hardwood floors. Follow the same procedures for all common areas in the hotel. Once a month dust and shine the chandeliers and lighting fixtures that can’t be reached on a daily basis.
