Maid Service Falls Church – Tips for Towels

maid service Falls Church

Cute, we know, but maybe you shouldn’t let your cat sleep on your guests’ towels.

What makes your hotel guest experience special – the towels? Yes, according to a recent consumer survey.

Xeros, laundry industry specialists, asked more than 1,100 US and UK consumers what was most important to them when visiting hotels. Travelers like cleanliness, and then softness when they judge towel quality. The standard of towels in a hotel has an impact on guest satisfaction, brand perception and customer loyalty according to Xeros.

Overall customer satisfaction is affected by the quality of towels – and incredibly, 73 percent of people surveyed said the quality of towels would influence their decision to go back to a particular hotel brand in future.

Maid Service Falls Church – Expert Advice

If towels are so important to people, this must mean that they matter in the home too. How can you ensure your towels are hotel standard for when guests visit? We asked our maid service Falls Church for their expert advice…

As a general rule, towels should be washed every three uses. You need to change towels frequently because of the rate we humans shed skin cells. Imagine the build-up. Ewww… Of course, you’ll be giving your guests clean towels when they arrive. If they are staying for a while, ask them how often they would like fresh towels.

Wash hand and face towels more often. They will be getting more use. At the minimum, they should be replaced every other day.

Wash them at a high temperature (140 degrees), using a biological powder that contains bleach. You can use fabric softener but don’t use it every time as this will reduce the absorbency of towels.

Dry them in a tumble drier for softest, fluffiest results. If you can put them outside to dry, they will be nice and fresh. That’s the more environmentally friendly option too.

Wash the same colours together. You want your white towels to remain pristine!

Add one cup of distilled white vinegar to your towel laundry once a month as this will improve absorbency and get rid of any mustiness.

Splurge on a special item to make your bathroom beautiful.

Many people use the summer as the time for major projects – such as bathroom renovation. If you’d like tips from the house cleaning Reston experts read on.

It might seem like an upheaval, but there are many benefits to the bathroom make-over. Here are just some ways you can make your bathroom better and what you’ll get from it.

 

 

Update the technology in your bathroom. Why not invest in some energy-saving tech for your bathroom, such as water-saving products that limit how much water you use in the shower or faucets? Other tech includes heated towel rails that allow you to vary the amount of heat and when it is used.

Added value. The main reason to renovate a bathroom is the value it can add to your property. House buyers want plenty of bathrooms and they want them to be clean, functional and stylish. Adding an extra bathroom can increase the value of your property by almost 7 percent.

House Cleaning Reston – Energy Efficiency

Improved energy efficiency. By installing water and other energy-saving gadgets or tech, you can save considerable money on your energy bills. At the most basic level, why not ask household members to time how long they shower for? Three minutes is a good time to aim for. Why not make it a competition among your family?

Make it more luxurious. Why not make your bathroom truly luxurious? We house cleaning Reston experts love spending time in our bathrooms, so we want to make sure the room is warm, welcoming and looks amazing. Check out ranges of water-proof wallpapers, install an old-fashioned dressing table with lights, put in a TV and get yourself a free-standing huge bath for Cleopatra-style bathing.

Or splurge on one stand-out item. You can actually renovate your bathroom on a budget. Get rid of clutter – tidying away the toiletries for example immediately makes a bathroom look better. Buying a set of matching towels will also improve the overall look, and old wooden crates can be varnished and used to store toilet rolls or rolled up towels. The, that leaves you free to concentrate on one stand-out item – that free-standing bath, for example, or a special order vanity top.
