Changeover Checklist: 2nd FloorEdit

Follow this checklist step by step in order. Do not cross anything off until you are sure it is being done.

  • Open windows to air out the rooms.
  • Collect and bag all towels in red bags and bring bags to laundry.
  • Collect and bag all white linen in white bags and bring bags to laundry. Leave double beds alone. Laundry will come to pick those linens up separately.
  • Collect and bag all spreads in white bags and bring bags to laundry *be sure that spreads are bagged separately from white linen.
  • Bag dresser scarves and pillow cases in colored pillow cases and put in the hall for laundry to collect.
  • Empty pitchers into slop buckets and collect pitchers (drinking and cistern bagged separately), bring to dish room before 10:00 break.
  • Collect glasses and empty any full glasses into slop bucket.
  • Empty monkey dishes, basins, and slop buckets and set outside rooms to be collected and taken to bathroom.
  • Collect trash (don’t forget the used soap). Bring any metal or colored hangers to the chamber closet. Bring trash to the back loading dock.
  • Collect blue folders, put them in a milk crate, and bring them to the front desk.
  • Scrub all crockery with pink soap (basins, slop buckets, and monkey dishes), and set to dry on a drop cloth.
  • Wash all unpainted wooden furniture with Murphy’s Solution – make sure they clean INSIDE ALL drawers.
  • Wash all shelves and inside and outside of windowsills with Murphy's solution.
  • Clean mirrors including the ones in bathrooms with Go2 Spray.
  • Distribute packets to appropriate rooms.
  • You or another chamber person should distribute glasses. Compare the number needed with room list, not with packets. Make sure that your glasses are clean and matching.
  • Distribute cots and pack & plays according to area list.
  • Check that each room has 10 white, plastic hangers, facing in one direction.
  • Clean the babysitting room. Make sure bookshelves are straightened, toys are picked up, and refrigerator is emptied and cleaned.
  • Everyone should start to make beds. This should be done when everything is done or in the process of being done. Once beds are being made, chamber should start bathrooms.
  • Clean and restock bathrooms – This should be done by a chamber person…You do it best!!! Let you helpers know that that is what you will be doing so that they can find you if they have any questions.
  • Line trash cans. Tie a knot in the bag so it can be dumped to empty without changing the bag each time.
  • Distribute crockery.
  • Place a wrapped bar of hotel soap in each monkey dish.
  • Sweep and swiffer each room. (Make sure to get under furniture, beds, and behind doors).
  • Straighten furniture so rooms are livable.
  • Fill and distribute pitchers.
  • Make sure that each room has a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the back of the doorknob.
  • Close all windows, open shades, and shutters. Straighten curtains.
  • Mop all rooms and close doors. This is the last thing to happen in a room.
  • Clean out hallways and stairs. Put away all cleaning supplies.
  • Vacuum hallways and make sure nothing is left lying around.
  • Go through the final check list with EACH ROOM. This is extremely important, it is the only way you will catch something you may have otherwise missed.
  • Send your helpers to the laundry to be redistributed.
  • Report to the laundry. We will check your area and tell you if another area needs help.
