A step-by-step guide to training and creating SOPs for your housekeeping department + cleaning checklists

Your housekeeping operations are responsible for an important part of the guest experience: your property’s cleanliness. When guests leave a review of their stay, the cleanliness of the room and public areas is a major defining factor of their guest review score.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, guests are more attuned to cleanliness than ever before. The hospitality industry has enhanced cleaning standards and procedures to protect the health and safety of both guests and housekeeping staff.

To help you keep up with the latest industry standards on cleaning procedures, housekeeping, and room service, we’ve prepared this guide and included free, customizable cleaning checklist templates that you to use at your own property.
