Hotels, Holiday Homes and Domestic Properties

Training domestic and housekeepers in quality and customer-focused cleaning 

The entire focus of all domestic cleaning and housekeeping is the customer.

Customer’s expectations, perceptions and experiences are everything. The entire focus is the customer. Whether the customer is a paying guest in a hotel, a resident in accommodation facilities, holiday home, or a homeowner, the customer and their expectations and requirements should always at the forefront in cleaning work.

Customers demand and rightfully expect quality and standards of cleaning and hygiene to match their expectations at a minimum. However, it does not stop there: there is one topic often missed in training and that is adopting continuous improvement in all their working practices to meet and exceed quality in cleaning and cleaning standards. Cleaning is not static, nor should the aim of quality. Quality in cleaning is an all-encompassing philosophy that never ceases, always looking to improve, always focused on the customer.
