Quality Labor Services wants you to be prepared for your new housekeeping job. So, here’s the four clever secrets from Quality’s best housekeepers:
1. Know what to clean, in what order.
It may seem obvious, but many housekeepers simply haven’t a plan of attack. Housekeepers in the know, categorically move through a room, to do the best job the fastest. For example, start by placing the clean sheets on the nightstand. Strip the bed, and use the dirty fitted sheet as a package for the rest. When cleaning a nightstand, first wipe lamp base and shade and then the stand’s surfaces and drawers.
Over time, you will develop a lean & mean cleaning system to clean your hotel rooms better & faster.
2. Open the windows.
Natural light will allow you to see the room more clearly, and fresh air will help neutralize the smell of the cleaning chemicals.
3. Start at the top of the room and move downward.
If you start at the bottom and move to the top, you’ll have to deal later with the dust that falls from above. It’s not fun to clean the same surfaces twice. So, it’s far more efficient to start from the top and move down.
4. Time is valuable.
Check that the alarm clock is set to the right time. Guests may have important meetings, and they’ll be in a better mood (and more likely to leave a tip) if they’re on time.
