What do you like about this industry?
The housekeeping department takes great pride in keeping the hotel clean and comfortable, so as to create a ‘home away from home’ for its guests. The aim of all accommodation establishment is to provide customers with clean, attractive, comfortable and welcoming surroundings that offer value for money. Nothing sends a stronger message than cleanliness in a hospitality operation. The housekeeping department not only prepares clean rooms on a timely basis for arriving guests but also cleans and maintains everything within the hotel so that the property is as fresh and attractive as the day it opened for business.
Housekeeping, thus, is an ancillary department that contributes in a big way towards the overall reputation of a property. It is rightly said that housekeeping is a 24 x 7 x 365 operation. It is the department responsible for the guest’s first impression. Moreover, if housekeeping efforts are exemplary, it is a great testimonial for guests to know that their experience will be as exemplary.
