The Simplified Guide to Hospitality Housekeeping

With different guests in and out of your space daily, maintaining appearance and cleanliness in the hospitality world can pose a challenge. Sustaining a space and keeping it smelling and looking fresh is crucial in keeping guests satisfied and exceeding their expectations. Luckily, this guide will break down the main areas you will want to pay attention to in your hospitality facility, to keep your space polished.

All Purpose Cleaners and Disinfectants:

All Purpose cleaners help break down grease, dirt and grime and can help simplify the process of cleaning hard surfaces in places like hotel rooms and lobbies. It’s important to do a daily wipe down of high-touch items and areas such as remotes, doorknobs, and light switches. Be sure to read the label of the cleaner you are using before applying it to surfaces. To ensure you are also killing germs in your facility, it is important to use a disinfectant alongside your all-purpose cleaner. When cleaning bathroom surfaces, you will want to make note of which viruses, germs, and bacteria the product you are using will kill. Choosing a product that will kill common bacteria found in bathrooms such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is essential in keeping guests happy and healthy.


Making sure you have effective laundry equipment to clean your linens is another essential part in maintaining your facility and image. There are many factors that can contribute to the cleanliness of your laundry. Using the correct laundry products, and choosing the right soil type for your load, along with an effective detergent can all aid in the outcome of your load. For example, for heavily soiled linens, you should first use a spotter to aid in removing the stain, the linens should then be washed with hot water, and on a heavy duty setting.

Carpet Care & Cleaning:

Deep cleaning your carpet and upholstered furniture is another essential step in the process of ensuring your facility is ready and clean for new guests. Carpet extractors are a great piece of equipment to use when deep cleaning. They use pressure, water, and suction to deeply clean your carpet and are great for areas with high foot traffic. They are ideal for restorative cleaning and extracting deep soil and dirt. Many extractors also come with added accessories that can make the machine versatile for other types of cleaning.
