Housekeeping is a broad term that is used to define the handling of cleanliness and maintenance needs in both the domestic and commercial arena. It refers to the maintenance and upkeep of premises such as a house, hotel or a resident facility. Housekeeping also involves performing many other duties such as laundry and errands running.  A hospitality environment is usually judged by its appearance; imagine checking into a hotel and discovering that the surfaces are dirty and the linen is stained! Bad housekeeping can be a total put off for customers and the chances of recurring business diminish significantly. This is the prime reason that hiring managers pay special attention to hire the housekeeping staff.

Working mostly in a commercial and domestic environments, housekeepers, housekeeping managers and housekeeping supervisors perform many challenging duties on a typical work day. It is no easy task to keep a facility spic and span throughout the day. Housekeepers perform a lot of physical work such as dusting, mopping, cleaning and doing laundry. The work of housekeeping managers and supervisors may not be physical but they also have their plate full as they are responsible for ensuring that all housekeeping duties are performed in a timely and efficient manner.
