Avoid the Glassware

The quick way to deal with this is to start providing plastic cups for in-room coffee and tea.

As coronavirus continues to spread, hoteliers are taking more rigorous precautions to ensure their hotels’environment is free from the virus and their risk of infection is lower. We’ve all been taking part in hand-washing for weeks, but what about washing other things, like hotel linen? 

Guests paying to stay at the highest quality hotels have the right to expect the finest experience. But one question which comes in the mind of every hotelier is ‘What do guests want from a hotel during this difficult time?’

In a survey, the majority of the guests stated that all they want in a hotel room is hot water, clean sheets, real towels, quiet, and a door that locks from the inside. A coffee maker, with appropriate supplies, is a wonderful bonus..

To meet guest expectations, hotels can do what they’ve been doing but to meet the ultimate guest satisfaction it is highly important to pay attention to cleanliness. The laundry room is one place where hotels can potentially save money while maximizing guest comfort by presenting soft, white linens and towels.

To keep sheetspillowcasestowels and other linens clean, soft, fresh and available for the next guest, hotels usually use more intense and powerful hotel laundry detergents. The hotels don’t have time to fight each stain individually, so the detergent will need to fight all stains initially.

Let’s have a look at some of the top-rated hotel laundry detergents of all time based on customer’s feedback.

You will find hundreds of suppliers and manufacturers in the hospitality industry but you need to choose the best ones for your hotel, don’t you? Here are some of the tips and tricks to select the best hotel supplier:

Free Delivery

You will not find any hospitality supply company to offer an entirely free delivery, but you are likely to receive your order for free if you make any purchase above $500! While making the purchase decision, look for hotel supply companies offering free delivering so you can save some. We also recommend increasing your order to avail the free delivery!

Location of Supplier

A supplier that is far away from you will charge extra for delivery and is likely to delay the delivery, especially during the storm or other natural disasters. If your hotel is in Florida, you need to prefer hotel supply companies in Florida and if you are in New York, you need to look for hotel supply companies in New York. The best way to search ‘hotel suppliers near me’.

One Stop Shop

You really don’t have the time, energy and resources to purchase your hotel supplies from different suppliers, instead look for a one-stop shop that meets all your hospitality needs. A supplier that offers bedsheets, top sheets, blankets and wholesale hotel amenities so you save in delivery and establish strategic relationships with your partner!

A coffee maker is an essential small appliance. Unlike many other small appliances, coffee makers are found outside the kitchen. You can see these appliances in offices and hotel rooms because almost everyone loves a hot cup of coffee at the start of the day.

There are many different kinds of coffee makers, brewing systems, pots, espresso makers, single serve, pour through, and French press. And there are different criteria for each.

First of all, let’s get the obvious out of the way. Coffee tastes best when the beans are freshly ground. Secondly, coffee tastes best when using the right amount of ground coffee per cup, and the right temperature of water, 195 degrees to 205 degrees.

Obviously, not everyone wants to take the time to freshly grind the beans, weigh the amount of grounds needed, and to ensure the proper temperature. But beyond that lets look at some of the options for most people.

As an owner of a hotel, you well know that you have to provide the best services to your clients to get repeat business and increase the revenue as well. To do so, the biggest and foremost challenge you have to face is to provide your visitors with all the necessary high-quality hospitality products and hotel room supplies to keep them comfortable and pleased.

 

While choosing a hotel supplier, you must consider two things i.e. quality and cost. And in this regard, you can either buy from a distributor or a manufacturer.

 

For instance, if a distributor claims their towels are 100% cotton, do you believe it? Do you know that a towel is claimed 100% cotton even if loops are cotton and base is blended?

 

But at DZEE Textiles LLC USA this is not the case. We provide what we claim. Our hospitality products are manufactured with the highest quality materials meant for comfort and durability.

 

If you want to make your hotel bathroom feel instantly more luxurious, the easiest switch is to upgrade to the best towels, money can buy.

 

Let’s have a look at D-ZEE’s luxury, premium, and economy hotel towels.

Hotel duvets are a very essential part of our bed linen. They keep your guests warm in winters and cool in summers. Thus, it is very important to keep them clean and fresh.

 

However, it’s not an easy job to do. If you want your soft and fluffy duvets to be the same old, you need to be very careful during its laundry. We provide you some tips which would help you keep it clean and homely- as you like it!

 

1. DO NOT wash your hotel duvets too often. Regular washes are likely to erase the fluffiness and fuzziness of your duvets. Thus, you should wash them once in every five years.

 

hotel duvets

 

2. Use lesser amount of detergent while washing your hotel duvets. Detergent consists of harmful chemicals and substances which eat away the fiber from your duvets. A rather more suitable option is to use detergents made for linen use especially or eco-friendly detergents.

 

3.Wash in warm or cold waters. Lowers temperatures are best suited for bed linen as heat can break down the fibers from your hotel duvets adversely affecting their durability and sustainability.

 

4. Bleach is NOT ALLOWED! Bleach is not only claimed to be harmful for the fibers of your bed linen but also causes gradual yellowing on your white sheets. Bleach contains harmful chemicals, perfumes, dyes and chlorine which is extremely harmful for your linen!

 

5. Wash your bed linen and regular linens separately. Especially your white hotel duvets to avoid any spread of color from other clothes. Moreover, do not mix duvets with metal zippers or rough textures, which is likely to cause pilling and tearing.

 

6. Iron your hotel duvet covers! Ironing your sheets is the only way for you to achieve the crisp, polished and clean look for your duvets likely to the picture below. Ironing would also help to dry your duvets in winters and also kill the any remaining micro-organisms.

 

Hopefully these tips would be helpful for you. Happy laundry to you!

Regardless of the scale of your hotel, you are doing a great job of providing a comfortable and convenient solution to weary travelers and exhausted vacationers, but with all that hospitality comes a stack of well-worn hotel mattress pads that need replacing.

 

After the new bedding purchases are made, it’s a hassle to get those old mattresses hauled away. Even worse, because of their bulk, they occupy space in already overflowing landfills and are tough to process and compress. The Mattress Recycling Council reports more than 50,000 mattresses end up in landfills each day.

 

So how do you care for your guests, cut costs and think green?

Extend Your Mattress Life

 

The longevity of hotel mattress comfort and any other advertised benefits are solely dependent on how it is treated. You can save on replacement costs by increasing the lifespan of your property’s mattresses. The first step is to install a sturdy bed bug and water proof mattress protector with a heavy-duty zipper.

 

The benefits of installing durable mattress encasement are twofold: not only will you protect your hotel mattress pads from bed bugs and dust mites, you will no longer have to deal with nasty liquid spills and stains.

 

If you want to get the most of your hotel mattress pads in terms of durability and comfort, cover the mattress protector with a plush mattress pad.  We recommend that you go for a three-layer water-proof, fitted mattress pad for a down-like feel and more protection, although you can even opt for a regular mattress pad over a waterproof mattress protector.

 

While we are talking about reducing wear and tear on your mattress, you might want to also take a look at your box-spring.  The main purpose of a box-spring is to raise the height of the mattress, absorb shock and extend its overall lifespan.

 

You can spruce up your box-springs by investing in decorative box spring covers. A well-made box spring cover looks presentable, prevents wear and tear and hides existing damage like snags or stains.

Donate and Get Back

 

If you have tried your best to hold back the years on your mattresses and are now in need of replacing due to franchise requirements, say good riddance by donating them to charities like Goodwill Industries, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Salvation Army and the like to get a tax deduction for a charitable donation.

 

Reduce your taxable income and lower your tax bill by giving away your property’s used mattresses and other furniture to a qualified charity. Make sure to give each item a look over – you can only receive tax deductions for items that are functional.

 

Resell

 

Another good option is to resell your hotel’s mattresses and box-springs to a smaller scale property whose franchise requirements, if any, are flexible.  You can also find a hotel content liquidator who will offer you a small price for all used furnishings that you dispose of as part of renovation or remodeling. Some offer the additional service of installing the new mattress sets before hauling off the old ones. These old mattresses and box-springs will then be placed in a used furniture warehouse to be sold to small hotels or individuals.

Reduce Waste and Recycle

 

Each year, the Mattress Recycling Council recycles 1 Million mattresses across state programs and have so far diverted 25,000 tons of secondary raw materials from landfills.  If you have ever attempted to deconstruct a mattress, you will find that underneath the cloth and cotton or foam, there will be a set of steel coils and a wooden frame.

 

Polyurethane Foam is turned into carpet padding.

Cotton is used to manufacturer industrial oil filters.

Steel Springs are recycled to produce tools, appliances, automobile parts and construction material.

Wooden frames are either shredded to create mulch or to use as an alternative fuel source. It can also be used to temper flooring and create pressed wood products.

 

Bye Bye Mattress, a program of the Mattress Recycling Council, offers free drop-off so you can locate a nearby facility and drop off your mattresses at no cost.

 

Before you decide to discard your old mattresses, choose an environment-friendly option, save money and take a detour around landfills and dumpsites.
