When you’re running a hotel, or are about to start one up, one of your main concerns is keeping your establishment clean. It’s likely that you’ve got at least several housekeeping staff on the payroll, at least for now. And it’s likely that, for now, this arrangement’s been working. But perhaps you’re one of those hotel owners that either has aspirations of having your own small local chain, or perhaps you’ve got Las-Vegas-sized dreams and you want to have a big hotel—or several.
And if you’ve reached the point where you can do this sort of expansion, congratulations! But there’s one thing you might want to think about now that you’re here at this level. Because your expansion dreams have grown, so, too, will your list of housekeeping staff and the list of hotel cleaning duties. Of course, you can keep some individuals on staff for such large ventures, if you believe that this gives a personal touch, especially in the rooms, complete with the complimentary mint on the pillow.
But if you’re at the Las Vegas level, to try and fill several hotels’ worth of housekeeping positions gets to be something of an expense. Yes, you want to pay your employees well enough for them to stay. Yes, you may have the best systematic approach for them to use for tackling all those rooms.
But despite such a system, if you get to the level that you’re always busy, you face the potential of them not being able to keep up, plus the front check-in areas, lobby-level bathrooms, etc. On top of this, you might encounter quite a few people being so burnt out that they don’t do a good job anymore, and you end up having to fire them, which is never fun.
Professional Hotel Cleaning Company
Consider instead, reallocating your financial resources towards hiring a professional cleaning company to come in and take up some of that slack. Again, you can still keep some people on for the rooms, but in order to make a good impression on your guests on their first time into the building, hiring a pro cleaning company for the lobby and lobby-level restrooms, among other public areas, will probably be the best investment you can make.
Not only will doing this allow you to continue giving a good customer experience, but it will ease up the load on your regular housekeeping staff, keeping the turnover rate low and the boss-employee relationships from going south. In short, a professional hotel cleaning company will save your sanity as well as your business.Read More
