If you manage a hotel or motel, chances are you have had to deal with an unusually large cleanup project. Some guests decide to make their room or suite a dumping ground. Special events held in a conference room or large indoor hall often result in a messy interior, one that needs a complete cleaning and disinfecting before it can be used again.
The hotel maid staff has enough work to do without having to remove ugly carpet stains or clean and sanitize upholstery that has been left in an unusable condition. Water damage from a broken pipe or a faucet that has been left running is too big a job for the regular hotel staff. Calling in a professional cleanup crew may be far more affordable than paying the maintenance crew an overtime salary. Choose The Proper Cleaning Method Special care needs to be given to fine-quality carpet, leather or simulated leather, and polyester fibers. Using the wrong cleansers can leave these materials badly damaged, and the replacement cost will far exceed the amount paid to properly clean the items. The carpeted areas inside a hotel give the guests their first impression of how well the premises are managed, which is why it is of utmost importance to keep the floor coverings spotless.
Dry chemical cleaning is one of the most cost-efficient methods of maintaining a vibrant, stainless carpet. The equipment needed is a spreading machine and a vacuum cleaner. Some carpets react well to the bonnet method of cleaning. This involves the use of a small motorized unit with a cleaning pad that rotates and gathers up soils. Excessively dirty carpets, especially those with an extensive buildup of sand and soot, may need to be steam cleaned, a project that calls for outside help.
Certain chemicals can discolor upholstery fabric. Most commercial detergents will remove the natural oils from leather while at the same time discoloring fabric. Once this occurs, there is no way to restore the leather’s natural appearance or texture. Cotton and wool fabrics will suffer from a high degree of fiber integrity loss if detergents are not properly diluted.
Water absorption into the carpet can mean disaster for the wood subfloor. Unless the surface is dried immediately and the surrounding area dehumidified, the moisture percolation can cause irreparable damage to the supporting wood. Over time, the wood will buckle, creating soft spots beneath the replacement carpet. It is imperative that special procedures be taken to minimize permanent damage from interior flooding. Calling In The Experts Aside from the knowledge that professional cleaning crews bring with them to the job site, the cost factor is one of the biggest reasons most hotel management teams use to determine whether to have their own in-house staff take care of the problem or to turn the job over to those who perform these tasks for a living.
When a hotel suite or ballroom needs a complete cleaning and disinfecting, time is of the essence. If you operate a hotel or motel, you are certainly aware that an empty room means a loss of revenue. If a special event is scheduled for next week in the conference center and this venue is full of odors, has a stained carpet, or has dusty lighting fixtures, the problem needs immediate attention.
