These are the few words that best describe the hotel industry. Whenever people want to experience luxury, the place to go are the hotels. Whenever people go on vacation, they usually look for a hotel to stay. Whenever they wanted to relax and unwind, they go to a hotel. (Wherein, the word “staycation” developed another meaning to most Filipino.) And lastly, hotels usually offer a variety of food and great dining experience.
In order for the hotel industry to deliver all these qualities and satisfy their guests, cleanliness is one of the top priorities that they should commit to. GES professional cleaning service removes residue, allergens, and bacteria that live on surfaces and build up over time in carpet, tile, upholstery and mattress. This offers a way to inexpensively improve the appearance of the property and illustrate to guests that every aspect of their stay has been considered. From the moment guests step into the hotel lobby, they are presented with a clean environment, and this continues until they check out of the hotel.
GES professional cleaning services help fine-tune the housekeeping duties. GES deep cleaning focuses on the areas, materials, and surfaces that doesn’t need special attention on a regular basis as well as making the materials and surfaces looks fresh, shiny and new again.

9. Sanitary Area
Important element in sanitary areas is its clean and fresh environment. GES shares your passion for promoting a healthy, contaminant-free space. Gym equipment, sauna, jacuzzi, toys, and playgrounds are particularly a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Gym and locker room, Spa and wellness, and indoor playground are used by multiple people/kids and are generally a warm and sweaty environment - all of which increase the likelihood that germs are lingering on surfaces. Having a dirty and contaminated area that causes diseases in children and adults will eventually lead to your facility being declared as unsafe or for your customers to not come back.
Clean interior and exterior of rangehood, refrigerator, oven and other appliances. Steam cleaning of sink, countertop, cupboard, stove and other areas to kill germs and bacteria build up. Intensive degreasing of vents, oven, stove, countertop and floor. Drain cleaning and pipe declogging without harming the materials.
Deep cleaning, stripping, waxing, polishing and crystallization of natural stone floorings, ceramic tiles, concrete, wooden and elastic floorings (e.g. PVC, Linoleum, and Rubber) as well as carpeted areas.
Cleaning the exterior is also important to overcome the power of nature to destroy. Once nature takes over, the structure will start to deteriorate. Mildew and mold, once it gets hold, can damage your paint, materials, and surfaces. Proper cleaning of entrance and pool area, walkway, parking, terrace and garden can prolong and preserve the property structure. Likewise, reducing the weathering process and eliminate insects, debris and undesirable natural stain. Improved overall curb appeal further increases customers’ enjoyment and satisfaction of the premises.
