Rest and sleep are one of the indispensable activities in people’s lives. As such, having a nice and comfortable place to wind down and get cozy after an event-filled day is a must for guests on vacation and for business travelers alike.
This is why for vacation rentals, part of creating an inviting ambiance in bedrooms is making sure that all the amenities and fixtures are in tip-top condition—especially the beds. Aside from housekeeping, which involves change of bedding and routine cleaning, beds and vacation rental mattresses must also be given special attention when it comes to room maintenance.
More than vacuuming your guests’ beds to ensure that deep-seated dust and dirt are eliminated, your mattresses also need to undergo a certain form of upkeep that prolongs life span and ensures utmost guest comfort. Here are a few things you should know about vacation rental mattress rotation:
- It is necessary. A huge of part of ensuring satisfaction among your customers is knowing that their needs are well-catered to and anticipated. Knowing that the beds they will be sleeping in play a crucial part in their day, having well-maintained beds and mattresses is a given. Because most types of mattresses have a tendency to sag or have body weight impressions over time, rotating them is a means to prevent these dent occurrences and keeps them in a better and more comfortable form for a longer period of time.
- It needs to be scheduled. Depending on your needs and your staff availability, rotating bed mattresses works well with a set schedule. Some prefer to do this maintenance activity at least every three months, while others do it as often as every other month. No matter what timing you prefer, it is always a good idea to keep it a habit and a part of your general upkeep routine.
- It is fairly easy. Assuming you have enough staff who can lift mattresses, rotating these big cushions is a relatively easy task. All it takes is turning the mattress sideways, flipping it over (so that the bottom part of the mattress is now on top), and turning it clockwise so that the head of the mattress is newly located at the foot of the bed, and vice versa.
