Elevate Guest Satisfaction with MasterCorp’s Expert Furniture Care
Guest satisfaction is dependent on many different factors, and one of the most underestimated variables is the role furniture plays in creating a positive, memorable experience. From the moment your guests step into their rooms, the comfort, aesthetics, and cleanliness of the furniture play a pivotal role in shaping their stay. In our more than 40 years of providing housekeeping services for nationally recognized hotel and resort brands, we’ve learned a thing or two about the importance of quality and comfort.
In this article, we’re going to look at the role room furniture plays in guest satisfaction, how your housekeeping team can help enhance your hotel room ROI, and finally, what you can gain from utilizing MasterCorp for your hotel guest room equipment.
Setting the Stage: The Role of Room Furniture
Hotel guest room equipment and furniture can make or break your guests perception of your property. To make sure you are providing your guests with the comfort and quality they need, consider the following points when choosing or refurbishing your room décor:
First impressions matter. The aesthetic and functionality of the furniture in your guest rooms set the tone for the entire stay. It should reflect your property’s brand while also drawing guests in. Additionally, consider furniture with colors and fabrics that are easy to clean and don’t easily fade.
Comfort is Key: The comfort of the furniture profoundly influences the quality of your guests’ stay. A well-chosen mattress, ergonomic chairs, and plush sofas contribute to a sense of relaxation and well-being, encouraging guests to unwind and recharge.
Functionality and practicality: Selecting furniture with multi-functional designs can enhance the usability of the space. Incorporating pieces that offer storage solutions or convertible features optimizes the room’s layout and convenience. Additionally, look for lightweight, movable options that can be picked up and cleaned under.
Reflecting the Property’s Identity: The choice of furniture should align with the overall aesthetic and identity of your property. Whether it’s rustic charm, contemporary elegance, or minimalist appeal, the furniture serves as an extension of your property’s personality. Be sure to have your housekeeping team’s presentation aligned with your standards as well, whether it’s the way you fold your comforter or leaving a mint on the pillow. Everything counts!
Preserving Beauty: Cleaning Methods for Optimal Furniture Condition
1. Regular dusting: Dust and debris can accumulate on furniture surfaces, affecting their appearance and cleanliness. Regular dusting with a soft, dry cloth prevents buildup and maintains a polished look. MasterCorp uses microfiber cloths, as we find this traps dirt and dust more than traditional rags. Additionally, we go over everything as extra assurance that we get every last speck of dust.
2. Upholstery and Fabric Care: Make sure your housekeeping team knows the importance of cleaning the upholstery, fabric, and frames of your furniture. At MasterCorp, we recommend vacuuming upholstery regularly to remove dirt, dust, and allergens. Fabric-covered cushions should be vacuumed and rotated periodically, and frames should be continuously wiped down. These steps will go a long way toward maintaining your guest hotel room equipment and protecting your hotel room ROI.
3. Leather Care and Cleaning: Leather furniture adds a touch of luxury. Clean leather surfaces with a damp cloth and a mild soap solution, followed by a leather conditioner to prevent drying and cracking. MasterCorp offers specialty leather and upholstery care that not only cleans but also protects your investments.
4. Mattress Matters: Mattresses should be regularly inspected and cleaned to ensure even wear, comfort, and quality. Make sure your housekeeping staff looks out for spills and stains and vacuums the mattress surface to remove dust and allergens. At MasterCorp, we go through regular inspection procedures regarding bedroom cleaning and even have a dedicated laundry business line for linen and terry care.
5. Enhanced Housekeeping Training: MasterCorp Housekeeping Services recommends all housekeeping teams go through ongoing training and refresher courses to enhance the quality and consistency of their cleaning methods. It’s standard in our family to have all Associates complete a minimum two-week housekeeping course and then go through daily refreshers, inspections, progress trainings, and supervisor reports to make sure everything is completed on time and expectations are exceeded.
