How Can You Keep Your Resort and Hotel Rooms Fresh With MasterCorp’s Summer Cleaning Tips?

With the summer season in full swing, it’s essential to keep your hotel and resort rooms clean and comfortable for your guests. But, unlike other seasons, summer comes with issues that housekeeping teams will need to fight against. The increased heat, allergens, and rain can cause humidity and air quality issues, as well as mold and dust. If hotel and resort managers aren’t careful with training and managing housekeeping departments, guest satisfaction and room quality can quickly plummet.

Luckily, MasterCorp is here to help! We’ve been a leading provider of hospitality housekeeping services for more than 40 years, and we are more than happy to share our experience and knowledge with you! In this blog, we are going to give you the inside scoop on our housekeeping tips, focus areas for summer cleaning, and how you can stay a step above the rest when you partner with MasterCorp.

Top 5 Focus Areas for Hotel and Resort Housekeeping During the Summer

1. Removing Sand and Sunscreen Residue

Summer is a time for fun in the sun. Beach and coastal resorts become hotspots during the summer months, which can be good for business but very bad for guest rooms. The extra activity means guests are constantly tracking sand and sunscreen onto their carpets, beds, and bathrooms. The sand particles can embed into fibers, degrading the quality of cloth and upholstery. Additionally, sunscreen residue, when not cleaned properly, can stain comforters, bed sheets, and pillowcases. That’s why you need a housekeeping team that’s been properly trained in proper carpet and linen cleaning techniques.

MasterCorp is well versed in removing dust and debris from carpets, surfaces, and hard-to-reach areas. Our Associates are trained in our proprietary 7 Steps To Clean process, which maximizes efficiency and puts quality above all else. If you need a more in-depth carpet cleaning in between peak seasons, we also have a dedicated Floor Care department for major deep cleans. Additionally, we have a laundry business line for all of your linen needs!

2. Tackling Humidity-Related Challenges

Summer often brings higher humidity levels, which can lead to musty odors and mold growth. This can also be a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause guests to get ill or cause respiratory problems for people with breathing-related health issues like asthma. That’s why your resort housekeeping services team not only has impeccable training but also uses tools to kill germs and maximize the effectiveness of the clean.

MasterCorp uses microfiber cloths in all of our cleaning processes to trap dust and particles that paper products or regular rags can leave behind or spread to other areas. This goes a long way toward improving guest satisfaction and indoor air quality. We also ONLY use eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Why? Because chemical cleaning products can irritate respiratory issues and degrade the surfaces they’re used on. We believe in using the best tools for every job because our partners are WORTH IT.

3. Refreshing Soft Furnishings

Summer is an important time to refresh soft furnishings like curtains, upholstery, and rugs. It’s especially important to do this regularly during these months, as more people, heat, and moisture will cause furnishings to get dirty faster and will degrade the fabrics at an accelerated rate if not properly taken care of.

MasterCorp’s dedicated housekeeping team is an expert when it comes to upholstery and furniture cleaning because we do it from the guest’s perspective. We also have a specialty service team to tackle heavier jobs, especially major room fresheners in between peak seasons.

4. Paying Attention to Outdoor Spaces

Resort rooms often have balconies or patio areas, which, if not properly taken care of in the summer, can cost resorts a lot of money. Summer showers and increased rainfall can cause furniture to rot and mold if not cleaned, leading to costly replacements. The wind and water can also push dirt and debris onto the balcony floors, windows, and any table surfaces. That’s why patios and outside areas need to be regularly cleaned, swept, and disinfected.

At MasterCorp, our Associates clean EVERY part of the room, and that includes the outside patio areas. We understand the importance of keeping outside furnishings clean because they are liable to spread the most germs. Looking to go beyond the room? We offer specialty cleaning services that extend to other areas of your resort, whether it’s lobbies, pool decks, recreational areas, or staff offices. We can get the job done!

5. Outsource Your Housekeeping operations.

With summer being a busy time for hotels and resorts, certain responsibilities can fall through the cracks in hotel operations, and housekeeping is typically the first thing to go. Additionally, faster turns could see improperly trained in-house teams cut corners to meet their daily demands, putting guest satisfaction in jeopardy. That’s why it might be time to outsource your housekeeping services for those peak seasons.
