If we have only have a 3-5 hour changeover window, or less, it’s essential that we tackle the biggest and most important tasks as first priority:
Our changeover team is allocated tasks before they arrive, to ensure there is no delay making decisions on who does what when you arrive.
One member of the team will handle the maintenance, checking for damage, fixing anything that needs it and handling the deeper clean tasks like barbecue, oven and replenishing of products. This leaves your other team member(s) to get on with the main tasks at hand – beds, bathrooms, floors, etcIf you have chores, such as gardening or window cleaning, these will add quite a bit of time to your busy schedule. In this case it’s a good idea to get an extra pair of hands, or ask your guests if they mind the gardener coming by whilst they are out. It’s fairly acceptable for a gardener to be on hand during their stay.
We make sure that we use tried and tested equipment and cleaning products that we know won’t let us down and that will stand the test of time providing the best results for the incoming guests.
A stringent changeover plan not only reduces wear and tear, it also impresses guests and avoids complaints. A deep clean will be required at least once a year, plus essential spring and winter maintenance. Use this opportunity to replace any items that show damage or signs of wear and tear.
