WHY HOUSEKEEPING TRAINING IS IMPORTANT
Housekeeping is not simply just hiring someone to clean just because “everyone can clean”. As true as Chef Gusteau from Ratatouille claims that anyone can cook, anyone can also clean, but only those that apply their training can be great.
“Good” housekeeping is the combination of art, science and math. It revolves around presentation while ensuring safety and economic use of materials and equipment. Here are the reasons why Housekeeping Training of your housekeeping staff is important:
“Housekeeping ain’t no joke.”
Consistent Quality of Cleanliness
The quality of cleaning of your housekeeping staff or cleaners can be different on Day 1, compared to, say Day 21. It can be better, or it could be worse. Having your cleaners undergo Housekeeping Training ensures that the quality of service they provide is the same from Day 1 up to the day he or she ends their services. Having and keeping a cleaning manual from the Housekeeping Training also ensures that even if your cleaners are replaced, you can expect to get the same quality of cleaning, as long as they read it.
“Cleaning and Organizing is a PRACTICE, not a Project.”
Proper Management of Cleaning Materials and Solutions
Have you ever experienced a time when you have just bought a big bottle of dishwashing liquid, only to find out that they are all gone just a few days after? If you have, then you are not alone. There are hundreds of individuals and companies who are spending too much on something so simple such as a dishwashing liquid and are not maximizing them to their full potential. These overspending could already amount to thousands in a month.
Our Housekeeping Training include topics on “How To Clean”, as well as how to manage cleaning resources.
Proper Surface Management
Have you had a cleaner who “cleans too much”? Wooden floors scratched, over-scrubbed upholstery, peeled Teflon frying pans, over-scrubbed walls now with paint peeling off? They did get the dirt removed, but the surface is damaged as well. Without proper Housekeeping Training, aside from wasting time and resources, untrained individuals can damage surfaces and properties.
Housekeeping Training include learning which cleaning solutions works best on what surface. Protecting surfaces while cleaning is just as important.
“The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.”
How long does it take to clean a toilet? 30 minutes? 1 hour? Have you seen a person clean a toilet for an hour and still provide varying results? Unless you do it yourself, or if you have the time to make a motion study of it, it would be difficult to determine how much time is needed to deliver quality cleaning for each area. Of course, the best way is for you to have your cleaners undergo Housekeeping Training to make sure your housekeeping needs are rolling like clockwork.
With Housekeeping Training, you will know how long each cleaning task will take. Managing the cleanliness of your entire working or living area will become easier.
“Nothing inspires cleanliness more than an unexpected guest.”
Consistent Implementation of Safety
Cleaning involves the use of a lot of water and harmful chemicals. Untrained individuals handling these materials are prone to accidents and injury, especially if such materials were not handled carefully. We are well aware that no one has died of cleaning, yet, but there are cases of injuries involving slipping because of wet floor, getting skin and eye irritations because of strong chemicals, hand eczema because of strong chemicals and so on.
Our Housekeeping Training includes the importance of safety while carrying out cleaning tasks. We believe that a sustainable housekeeping training is an effective training, that is why we ensure that safety is included in every part of our training.
At the end of the day, the savings you will get from maximizing the working hours of your cleaners and the savings you get from proper use of materials, outweigh the cost for a Housekeeping Training. The technology in cleaning is not as fast paced as mobile phones, so a Housekeeping Training you get today can be very useful for more than a decade.
