Essentials for Getting Guest Ready
Whether you’re greeting guests after a closure, or getting ready for the ‘#staycation boom’ we’ve put together a few suggestions of how you can improve your reviews to enhance more bookings, and a better guest experience. As accommodation providers, you must start the new season with a clean and hygienic stay for your guests.
It’s also the perfect time to have a spring clean and thoroughly cleanse items that may not get washed regularly, below are our Top Cleaning Tips.
· Heavy and bulky items
Did you know that the average person sweats at least 200ml of liquid onto bedding every night? With this and the dead skin cells, dust mites are quick to appear in unwashed beds and bedding.
The problem is a lot of these items may not be so easy to wash in your normal washing machine, and if you’re also an accommodation provider – you need to make sure that bedding is clean between guests. Using an external laundry provider will ensure you’ll get a hygienic wash, in a large machine that will allow a thorough wash of your bulky items.
Similar to your duvet covers, pillows should also be washed between guests. In addition to our skin cells, there will be saliva, sweat and oils on the pillow. If you use pillow protectors, these should be washed after each guest – reducing the need to wash pillows as frequently.
When did you last wash your curtains? It is one of those jobs that get left behind, as it requires extra effort and time with taking down and hanging up again. Take advantage of the time to take these down and clean them – free from dust and oil.
· Bedding and towels
These items are less bulky and easier to wash, however, they still take time to dry and iron.
EdKa Laundry can collect and return your freshly washed and ironed bedding in x days. We also make sure those towels keep their fluffy feel, providing a hotel-quality wash and launder, which will give added comfort to your guests.
· Carpet cleaner hire
A vacuum cleaner will remove the visible dirt, but not the embedded dirt that builds up over time. You’ll be astonished by the dirt that can be washed out of a carpet!
