HOUSEKEEPING TIPS... Let there be light!


From sun up to sun down, it’s the curtains that get the run around. 

As expert hoteliers, you will know when your guests are in dire need of a darkened room - napping children, shift workers, exhausted long haul travellers. Your guests will be forever grateful for a chance to shut out the world to slumber for a while.

Heres a hint from housekeeping experts when you enter each hotel room on your cleaning rounds…

Use natural light wherever and whenever possible when cleaning a room. It provides better ventilation when you're working with chemicals and lets you see more details as you clean. Plus it's good for the environment. So throw open those curtains, give them a quick shake down as you start your rounds.

 And if those curtains appear worse for wear, it may be time to take a look at a new set!

Blackout curtains also are energy saving (keeping heat from escaping in the winter and the hot sun from heating up the room in the summer) and help block or muffle outdoor noise. 

It might be time to take an inventory on the humble blind to ensure your guests have quality curtains which are both easy on the eye and helps with the ‘shut eye’.
