The Importance of Professional Cleaning in Hospitality

Working in the hospitality industry can be a very rewarding and exciting experience. Accommodating new people every day from all over the world leads to fabulous new connections and  fascinating stories shared. There are many factors that go into ensuring your guests have a positive experience at your establishment. One of the most important aspects of a hospitable stay is cleanliness. Go to any hotel, motel or inn’s reviews and one of the first and most notable things mentioned is the cleanliness of the location. How clean a room is can often be the deciding factor between a one star and five star review. 



Staying somewhere unfamiliar can already be a daunting task for people. Ensuring that they are completely comfortable in a space is crucial to a good stay experience. Oftentimes this goes beyond mood lighting and a fluffy comforter. A space should be  free from any evidence of a previous guest is key to allowing a new guest in the room to fully relax. There is nothing more inviting than a fresh smelling room equipped with fresh sheets and the option for a bubble bath. 

Health and Safety 

In addition to the simple comfort and aesthetics of a room, the cleanliness also contributes to the guests’ health and overall wellbeing. You hear horror stories of hotel rooms infested with bed bugs and lice, or blood stains on mattresses, and while these situations are obviously very extreme, there are other less obvious health threats lying in average hotel rooms. 

The world is in a confusing place health-wise at the moment. Two years into the COVID-19 pandemic and now other infectious diseases such as Monkeypox are reportedly starting to spread as well. It has never been more important to the health of people to not only make sure a space is visibly clean, but also disinfected and sanitized as well.

People seek professional hospitality for numerous reasons, whether it be for vacation purposes, work, etc. Oftentimes people look forward to such stays because it is a brief escape or break from daily life. Guests are able to have their needs accommodated as they spend their time in a different, often more luxurious and meticulously attended to space. Hotel rooms are known for their high standards of cleanliness, people expect this level of service when booking their stay, and often incorporate it into their vacation fantasy. If your accommodations are not to the highest level of cleanliness possible, this may inhibit the guests ability to feel as though their luxurious fantasy vacation is coming to fruition. 


Professional Cleaning Services 

The many responsibilities that go into hospitality and hotel management make the industry one of the most overwhelming to work in. Maintaining the cleanliness of a space in addition to overseeing other areas of responsibility such as bookings, shipments, employees, finances, etc. can often be too big of a task for employees. Hiring a professional cleaning service, such as S.J. Services ensure that your space is being consistently cleaned and disinfected at a professional level, allowing employees to fully dedicate their time and energy to other areas of management, producing the best service to your guests.
