This unique online course in domestic and housekeepers cleaning is perfect for guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, small hotels and holiday homes, where a high standard of cleaning and appearance is expected without question; the lack of good cleaning can ruin the reputation and break the business.
If you are cleaning in anywhere else but your own house, you are a professional providing a professional service. You need the professional’s knowledge. In this course our aim is to give you the very best training in how to clean houses to high standards – that is professionally, working to the highest standards – higher at least than most people can achieve.
As a professional in an industry with direct contact with the paying public – your customers – the way you interact with them, from the very first meeting, will determine your success. Customer service is a vital skill to know and practice, you could even say as vital as the cleaning itself. But it’s much more than being ‘nice’, from the first meeting with the customer, you are the face of the company, a bad impression by the customer tarnishes the company as a whole.
As such we have added an entire section dedicated to good customer service and building that vital long-term customer relationship to develop long term success.
