Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Leveraging Deep Cleaning Tool from HotelTap

Spring cleaning becomes routine for housekeepers in any season with this handy digital tool


In less than 45 days, it will be Spring, and for many people, it marks a season of cleaning and refreshing. For the Hawthorn Suites ByWyndham in Alameda, Calif., "Spring cleaning" is now happening 52 weeks a year, thanks to the new Room Logs: Deep Cleaning tool recently added to HotelTap. Today this "digital log book in the cloud" is helping housekeepers stay on top of arduous tasks that are not part of their daily chores, such as dusting behind nightstands and headboards, flipping mattresses, vacuuming underneath the beds, cleaning fan blades, sanitizing grout in the bathroom, removing mildew in the tub, and so on. Not only does Room Logs: Deep Cleaning create digital task and subtask logs for routine room inspections, but it enables teams to stay on top of outside cleaners who may be called in to treat a stain, etc.
