The Value of a Housekeeping Procedure


Housekeeping is a crucial part of a hotel business. Without housekeeping, you can’t run a hotel and can’t satisfy your customers.


The Main Tasks of Housekeeping:


  1. Cleaning and maintenance of the entire hotel

  2. Checking and ordering necessary supplies (cleaning products, bed sheets and other guest supplies, etc.)

  3. Preparing the duty schedules

  4. Washing clothes and linen


A Good Reputation


Housekeeping has a huge impact on your hotel’s general reputation, it is crucial for the hotel’s quality since customers care a lot for the cleanliness and quality of the hotel.

Besides the fact, that you will definitely loose an unhappy customer in the future, that one person can write a negative review. In that case you will not only loose him/her but also a lot of other people reading that review.


Having a perfect housekeeping, on the other side, will lead to positive reviews and therefore a better reputation. Set a clear division between your hotel and the competitors with providing a good housekeeping.
