Within the housekeeping industry, there are several major considerations that should be taken into account when selecting uniforms. Picking out the right uniform can help the staff to better handle their jobs, while the wrong uniform can slow them down and become dirty very quickly. In order to help your staff as much as possible, it is important that you take some time to consider all of your options, and be certain that you are truly picking the uniforms that will best help your employees, while still ensuring that the housekeeping staff looks their best.
Pockets are the number one friend of a housekeeping staff member. By ensuring that uniforms have a lot of pockets staff will be able to quickly and easily carry around with them some small cleaning supplies such as towels, and even a small bottle of cleaner. This can reduce the amount of time that they are shuffling around and digging in the cart for certain supplies. Being careful to look for deep pockets as well will ensure that supplies are not easily falling out of pockets as well.
An apron can be a great way to add some additional pocket space, plus help to protect the clothing items. Looking at all of the different types of aprons that are available, most business owners choose a half apron that goes around the waist itself. However, there are also full style aprons available as well. Selecting an apron with plenty of pocket room is important as well to ensure that you are getting the look that you want, while still having ample pockets.
You should also look for shoes that are extremely comfortable as well. While slip resistant shoes are important, having properly cushioned footwear is important as well. By having cushioned shoes, you will protect yourself from the harshness that could happen to the feet otherwise, and help to ensure that sore feet are not keeping staff from coming in to work.
Taking a bit of time to look at color choices is very important. You need colors that will look good with your logo, look well together, but also be resistant to stains and dirt. You do not want the housekeeping staff looking dirty and unkempt after cleaning only a single area. Rather, uniforms that hide the dirt will wear and show much better since stains and dirt will not be immediately obvious to staff. Proper selection of colors will go a long way towards the overall appearance.
Look for stain guard treated fabrics as well. This will help to quickly and effectively remove dirt and stains from uniforms, while still preserving the colors. By spending a bit additional dollars with each uniform purchase to get a good quality fabric that resists stains you will greatly extend the life of the uniforms and ultimately save a lot of money. Of course, typically getting a stain resistant fabric will add to the costs of the uniforms, these is such as small costs over the course of time, that it would be foolish not to insist upon the treated fabrics.
