The importance of housekeeping staff
Last month was a stressful month because there was no proper housekeeping staff in my office. The existing one had ditched us and the hunt for a new one had started. Day in and day out, a new agency would walk in to check on our premises and promise of giving their best to our organization, but again the same old story.

Housekeeping boys although not regularly, kept calling the agency for replacement, but the day is over with only one boy handling the entire activity for the day.

What are the things that housekeeping takes care of – well they start with cleaning the toilet, which is segregated into Ladies and Gents. Gents use the toilet as they usually use it, not keeping the manners in mind. 

What about the ladies toilet? Ladies whom we consider as more educated and up-to-date than gents, who take utmost care of everything are most messy. 

They roll half the tissue for single use and then put it in the commode. They don't realize that putting used tissues in the commode may lead to choking up and then further problems will arise later.

Some females finish their business in the toilet and forget to flush it. Some of them during their periods leave all their bloody dots for others to clean, how disgusting! Some use the toilet as if they are first time users. The whole floor is messed up and water poured all over. 

While giving a touch up to their faces before leaving for a meeting or so, they make themselves look pretty but the amount of hair that covers the floor in the toilet and the water in the wash basin is worth bothering. The poor housekeeping staff keeps on wiping the same every hour.

What kind of impression must be a male housekeeper having in his mind while he cleans the ladies toilet with all kinds of imagination of a female being so careless in maintaining her toilet sense. Well it's difficult to point out whether the culprit is one person or many.

Same situation happens when public toilets are used but there are attendants who sit at the entrance and the public is charged for their usage. At domestic level also people expect much more from their housekeepers. While there are some keepers who just manage do their bit in the range of their salary, but those who are highly dedicated end up doing much more.

Housekeeping is very-very important because the area has to be kept very clean especially the toilet, which is used maximum times during the day. Just imagine how tough and unhygienic it is to have a day without housekeeping and the mess just lying without being cleared. Therefore each one has to be more alert and think before creating a mess.
