Running a hotel is hard work and there are plenty of big jobs that need your attention. However, sometimes it's the little things that count and with summer on its way, here are a few little tweaks that can really mean a lot when you and your staff is extra busy.
Something as simple as dead television remote batteries can mean the difference between having more time to focus on other things or having to create a work order for an already busy employee so that they can get the guest their television back. Schedule battery checks and changes on a regular basis as part of your preventative maintenance schedule so you can have it done at your convenience, not at the last minute. Of course, always check any smoke detectors and emergency equipment on a regular basis as well.
Having your maintenance crew keep an eye on weed control, leaky faucets, clogged drains, and similar public bathroom area issues will make the job stay easy instead of becoming a bigger problem with a much harder fix, later down the line. Most of these issues can be done very easily – much easier than trying to fix the plumbing once a leak is out of control.
It is imperative that all areas are kept safe for the guests of the hotel and of course, the employees as well. If there is a swimming pool on-site, then you know that you have to keep it clean and free of debris which can cause a fall but how often is it checked during the busy season? Having an employee stop by and check the area on a periodic basis is always a good idea because a big crowd can cause it to be an unsafe area in an instant.
