Post-Summer Crowd Departure: 3 Vital Drapery Checks Every Hotel Should Undertake

As the summer season winds down and the hustle and bustle of a vibrant crowd recedes, you have a unique opportunity to ensure that your spaces remain in top-notch condition. One essential area that often requires attention is the drapery. These elegant window treatments contribute significantly to a hotel's ambiance and guest experience. After the departure of the summer crowd, here are three crucial drapery checks that every hotel should prioritize:

1. Fabric Inspection and Cleaning:

After a busy summer, draperies might have accumulated dust, debris, and stains from increased foot traffic and open windows. Inspect the fabric thoroughly for any signs of wear, discoloration, or damage. Pay close attention to the fabric's texture, color, and overall appearance. We always suggest using a mild soap and brush to remove stains, use a duster to go over fabric and hardware. Clean draperies not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your hotel but also contribute to a healthier indoor environment by eliminating allergens and dust. If a drape requires a thorough clean cycle, please read this important document on how to properly clean a drape.

2. Hardware and Mechanism Assessment:

While drapery fabric is crucial, the hardware and mechanisms that facilitate their operation are equally important. Check curtain rods, tracks, and hooks for any signs of damage, rust, or misalignment. Ensure that the mechanisms, such as pull cords or motorized systems, operate smoothly without any hitches. Addressing hardware issues promptly not only prolongs the life of the draperies but also ensures that guests can enjoy hassle-free use during their stay.

3. Light and Privacy Control Evaluation:

Drapes play a pivotal role in offering guests the perfect balance of light and privacy. As the seasons change, the angle and intensity of sunlight can vary. It's vital to assess the effectiveness of the draperies in controlling light and providing privacy. Make adjustments as necessary to ensure that guests can comfortably regulate the ambiance of their rooms. This attention to detail contributes to a superior guest experience and showcases your commitment to their comfort.

**Bonus Tip**

Consider taking advantage of the post-summer period to switch out drapery fabrics or window covering styles your property has been considering.
