Essential Equipment Your Hotel Housekeeping Crew Needs

Lucille Palmer

When it comes to operating a hotel, your housekeeping crew does the bulk of the day-to-day work that keeps guests satisfied. Giving your crew the equipment they need is essential. Use this guide to help streamline your housekeeping operations and keep your hotel neat, tidy, and fully stocked.

Rolling Carts

Rolling carts come in handy for a number of purposes. Vinyl laundry carts, for example, make it easy to transport towels and sheets to your on-site laundry facilities. These carts typically have a metal or wood bottom with durable steel casters attached. Plastic rolling bins offer a great way to remove trash from rooms and transport it to your dumpster area. These bins have open tops and sturdy plastic construction to hold heavy loads of trash. Choose bins with steel casters that can lock in place for added safety and to prevent small children from rolling them down your hallways.

Stackable Storage Bins

Stackable storage bins give you a convenient way to sort items you use to restock guest rooms every day. These items include soaps, shampoos, and mini bar items. Choose a color-coded bin system your housekeeping staff can use to arrange items by type. For example, you can assign toiletries to blue bins and edibles to green bins. Look for bins with open ends so your crew can quickly grab the items needed for the day. You can also use larger stacking bins to store surplus pillows and comforters.

Housekeeping Carts

Housekeeping carts function as both storage and trash disposal systems for your housekeeping staff. These carts typically feature one area to hold a large, heavy-duty garbage bag for emptying hotel room trash, and they boast several shelves to hold towels and sheets. Look for carts that have attachments to hold vacuum cleaners and mops so your staff can transport everything needed to clean the rooms, and choose designs with heavy-duty steel casters to provide effortless mobility on carpeted surfaces. Your staff may appreciate carts with cabinet doors that keep guests from helping themselves to the items stored on the cart. Remember that you can also organize some of the previously mentioned stackable storage bins on the cart shelves, providing an ample supply of toiletries and mini bar items for easy stocking as your crew cleans each room.

Talk to your staff about the equipment that they want to get their jobs done efficiently every day, and consider these three options to help keep your housekeeping operations running smoothly.

Safety First With Industrial Equipment and Supplies

Hi, my name is Lewis McKinley and this is a blog about the safety of industrial equipment and supplies. When working with industrial equipment, employees must implement all safety measures to ensure they stay safe at all times. When I was growing up, my dad was a safety inspector, so my siblings and I were always reminded about safety and he taught us how to stay safe no matter what we were doing. Since I learned about safety at a young age, I always make sure that safety is a priority in everything I do. I enjoy doing research about safety and I keep up with changes in safety regulations for many industries. I hope that after you read my blog, you'll learn measures that you can take to remain safe around industrial equipment and supplies.
