Spring Break is in full swing in many parts of the country right now and those who work in areas where it is a Spring Break destination know that sometimes it is too crowded or busy to get your work done. For instance, Panama City Beach Spring Break means record crowds.
What this means for you is that you have to readjust and make sure that your workers can safely and efficiently work around the crowds. It doesn't have to be Spring Break either; it can be the busy season at a ski resort or a holiday weekend but no matter where you work, if it's around crowds, the work still has to be completed and there are a few ways to make it easier.
Section Off Areas
Areas like pools and common areas may need to be closed off for the time it takes to get the work done. Some areas can be done before they are open like the pool or hot tub but there are times when something may have to be fixed or cleaned during operating areas. The best way to ensure a faster job is to section off the area temporarily if at all possible.
Work With Others
When housekeeping is cleaning a room it may be a good time to do any of your small maintenance tasks. This make sure that none of the guests are in the room at the time and the room can be cleaned and maintained at the same time so there is no overlap that inconveniences your guests.
Readjust Worker Schedules
Making a new schedule is never fun for anyone but during the busiest times of the year, this may be necessary. Employees that typically have a certain day off may need to come in on that day just so your workload is covered.
These are just a few of the ways that may help you and your maintenance crew when things are so hectic that it is hard to get the tasks done that need to be done, especially those that have to be done on a daily basis.
