Offering a Full Welcoming Space
Guests often wonder, how does Forest Cove prepare for them? Exceptional hospitality can come through in a lot of ways, but it most definitely starts with a clean space. And while cleaning might not be the most fun part of hosting, it doesn’t have to be difficult! Here are a few tips and tricks we’ve learned to help our guests get swept up in an effective and easy cleaning routine.
We focus on the trouble spots
First things first: Give extra attention to the most important areas of cleanliness. Those would be the kitchen and the bathrooms. When we fulfill requests in the refrigerator, we always make sure to give it a thorough cleaning. And we try to make a point to keep all of the condiments and other items nicely organized, as our guest will be encouraged do the same.
We make room for our guests’ things
We certainly love our tchotchkes, but too much of a good thing may look like clutter to a visitor. In addition to keeping our space clean, it’s important to keep it tidy. Our guests may not want to live out of their suitcase for their whole stay, so we can offer them space to put out their toiletries and personal items on a shelf or nightstand. We also offer your guests room for their clothes and larger items in a closet or dresser.
We always pay attention to details
Once we’ve gotten our space clean and ready for our next guest, we check the details:
- Look for stray hairs on the couch
- Clean off dust on the edges of shelves, picture frames, and doorways
- Wipe down all the surfaces of fixtures and appliances
- Check the kitchen counter for crumbs
- Sweep or vacuum under the furniture
