- Collect the materials required to clean the vanity counter (i.e. marble safe cleaner, white scrubbing pad, squeeze and sponge).
- Remove any and all items from the vanity counter; if cleaning an occupied room, carefully place the guests’ items atop a towel on one side of the vanity counter.
- Once the vanity counter is empty, clean the area with hot water and a white scrubbing pad without applying the chemical.
- Ensure that the wash basin fixtures are cleaned using hot water and a sponge.
- Clean the wash basin’s drainage stopper with a toothbrush and cleaner before rinsing it under hot water.
- Check the wash basin for overflow of any accumulated dirt.
- Cleaner is only to be used inside the wash basin and not on the vanity counter as it may cause damage to the surface material.
- After cleaning the area, wipe it with a red piping duster.
- Check for maintenance (e.g., plugged drain or slow drain, low water flow, soap dispenser not working or needed refill, etc.).
- Upon completion, replace the supplies as per standards.
- If the room is occupied, all guest items should be rearranged properly without changing their prior placement.
- In public areas, the basin must be dry wiped and the fixtures are to be buffed to shine after each use.
