First off, I will admit right up front that I expect my guest room to be dust-free when I arrive. I expect clean bedding and clean towels. I don't expect obvious dirt stuck in the corners, etc. When the room is over $200/night, I'm even more picky. So, after my weekend getaway, here's my list of things that I would like to submit to the place I stayed, altho I did mention that the room wasn't all that clean:
- Check the window sashes...the dead bugs should not have dust on them.
- Check the 'secondary' bed...the pillow cases should also not have dusty dead bugs on them.
- Buy a long-handled Swiffer and get those pesky old, dusty spider webs out of the corners and off the ceilings. (I don't mean the spider webs with an obviously active spider, those appear in minutes.)
- Look at the back of the bathroom door once in awhile and clean it.
- Get the crud out of the corners in the bathrooms.
- Wipe down the baseboards.
- Look in the guest books and remove your March, 2009 specials page.
- Grout and caulk should not be moldy.
- Look under the beds and dust there once in awhile.
- With that same long-handled Swiffer, dust behind the furniture. (OK, I know you're all wondering if I MOVED furniture for that one, but I didn't, this is crud I could see from my bed.)
- If the sheets you're putting on the bed are not really clean, get another set.
- If the bedskirts are stained, wash them.
- Take a look at the room when you think you're done cleaning. Then fix the things that are out of alignment.
- If there is a light switch by the door, make sure it actually turns on a lamp.
