When I was a teenager with permed hair, neon cropped t-shirts, and Hammer pants, I cleaned villas on Hilton Head Island for pocket money.
Back then, Hilton Head was a sleepy, upscale resort, with a year-around population of 8,000 and a tourist influx of a bazillion high-end tourists each year. Gas was $1.25 a gallon. There was 1 traffic light. But cleaning up after guests was still a chore.
As a college student and young woman, I went on to admin level jobs at hotels and villa complexes and realized how important checklists are to standardize cleaning and maintenance tasks and to ensure quality control.
This is the list I provide to my crew for 'annual' cleanings that we now do 2x per year. Did I leave something out? If so, drop me a note and I'll update the list!
