Housekeeping staff have a challenging task – they need to clean guest rooms quickly and efficiently, while also ensuring rooms are left in pristine shape. With guests’ expectations high, any slip up could lead to a bad review, which can negatively impact your hotel brand.
So, how do housekeepers keep up with demand while keeping rooms clean and tidy? Here are some tips for going above and beyond when cleaning guest rooms.
1. Start with a clean slate
When working against the clock, it can be tempting for housekeepers to clean around guests’ items, instead of under them. But doing so can look sloppy and unprofessional. Instead, advise cleaning staff to remove all of the clutter from an area before cleaning it, so that way they are sure to cleanse the space thoroughly and not miss a spot.
2. Choose a versatile cart
The right housekeeping cart can make a huge difference in the preparedness and efficiency of your staff. That’s why it’s important to invest in quality carts such as the new Xduty Xpress Cart from Hospitality 1 Source. The Xpress Cart is compact in design, yet includes a bag with multiple storage options to meet the needs of any guest room.
Additional features include:
- A durable, hammertone powder-coated finish
- A sturdy, multi-purpose bag with numerous pockets and storage areas
- Easy assembly with no tools required
- Four swivel wheels that easily attach to the bottom of the cart
3. Add a special touch
While it may seem trivial, adding a small touch to the room after cleaning – a note from the housekeeper, a uniquely folded towel, a small chocolate on the pillow – can make a big impression. It shows that your staff – and ultimately your property – go the extra mile to make your guests feel special.
