Cleaning for homeowners differs from cleaning for upcoming guests. Here are some key ways a hospitality cleaning is different from a residential cleaning:
- Left behind guest items
- Completing the job on time
- Replacing and refilling amenities
- Hospitality touches
- Outside areas
- Extra Details
- Rubbish Bins
You are likely to be asked to complete laundry in order to remake beds and refresh towels.
It is important that all dishes be clean and put away.
Check for left-behind guest items
- In drawers and closets
- Under beds
- In the bathrooms
Completing the job on time
Guests will be checking in so it is critical that the job is finished on time.
Empty the refrigerator of expired food or leftovers from the last guests.
Replacing amenities and refilling inventory
- Bathroom amenities
- Toilet paper
A client may want:
- Lights or music left on for guests
- A welcome note or basket
- Blinds open or closed
- Guest book
- Extra keys set out
- Tidy or clean outside areas or amenities
- Sweeping the porch
- Cleaning a BBQ
- Wiping outside furniture
- Removing cob webs
- Dusting baseboards
- Dusting light fixtures and tops of picture frames
Garbage and Recycling
- Emptying all garbage bins
- Taking out recycling
- Check lamps and light switches to make sure they work.
- Replace light bulbs
- No matter how clean a place is, if a guest finds one hair, they will have the impression the whole place is dirty. It is also one of the most commonly mentioned thing in a negative cleaning review.
Beautification and Staging
- Complete one final walk through to make sure everything is perfect
- Make it beautiful. Pay attention to staging and presentation.
