Offering a Full Welcoming Space
Exceptional hospitality can be expressed in a lot of ways, but it most definitely starts with a clean space. 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 to help you get swept up in an effective and easy cleaning routine.
Focus on the trouble spots
First things first: Give extra attention to the most important areas for cleanliness. Those would be the kitchen, toilets and bathrooms. If you offer your guests space in the refrigerator, give it a thorough cleaning. If you make a point to keep all of the condiments and other items nicely organized, your guest will be encouraged do the same.
Make room for your guest’s things
We certainly love our knick-knack’s, but too much of a good thing may look like clutter to a visitor. In addition to keeping your space clean, it’s important to keep it tidy. Your guests may not want to live out of their suitcase for their whole stay, so you should offer them space to put out their toiletries and personal items on a shelf or nightstand. You can also offer your guests room for their clothes and larger items in a closet or dresser.
Pay attention to details
Once you’ve gotten your space clean and ready for your next guest, check the details:
- Look for stray hairs on the couch and chairs
- 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
- Remove sticky fingerprints from the TV and remote controllers
