Communicating safety measures on websites, in rooms, and in common areas is essential. More impactful, however, is “Broad Daylight” cleaning. Broad daylight cleaning offers a value that cannot be understated. When patrons see the cleaning staff cleaning at work, using the right housekeeping supplies, there is transparency and, as a result, trust in the establishment.
Today, guests are apt to see a bright, color-coded microfiber program at work. Color-coded microfiber cloths, dusters, and mops — specific colors for specific areas, not by coincidence. This sophisticated process ensures that no cross-contamination occurs. Usually, only the savviest of travelers know that the person cleaning the gym uses green cloths and mops, while the person cleaning the bathrooms uses red, but the rest of the world is starting to catch on!
Increasing the visibility of cleaning crews in action has a positive effect on the comfort levels of hospitality guests and the potential to increase repeat business. Proprietors should consider the value of visibility when getting janitorial cleaning supplies for their crews.
