Housekeeping and Maintenance

Back

HOUSEKEEPING
Housekeeping is provided once each week and your scheduled day is listed on your Welcome Letter. We will remove any garbage/recycling, make the beds with fresh linen, replace towels, dust, sweep, vacuum and mop the floors. We will also replenish your supply of bathroom and facial tissue and garbage bin bags on housekeeping day, throughout your stay.
Our weekly cleaning is intended to help our guests maintain the suite and dish washing, daily garbage/recycling removal and personal laundry are the Guest’s responsibility. Please clean spills in the kitchen as they happen. Adjust stove/oven temperatures to prevent spill over. Use the overhead hood fan when cooking. Open a window if cooking heavily aromatic foods. Wash dishes and cookware regularly to avoid food build up and replacement.
Contact your DelSuites representative with any extra or special cleaning requests or concerns. Extra charges will apply if extra time or repairs are needed to return suite to the condition it was in at your arrival.
Deep cleanings will be scheduled for our longer stay guests (3 months or more).

Please note that if you have arrived the day before or are departing the day after a scheduled suite cleaning, your suite will NOT be receiving service.

The following linens are replaced once weekly, when used:
- bed sheets and pillowcases
- bathroom towels
- kitchen tea towels and dish cloths
- table napkins and place mats if required
- sofa bed package if required.

If you need to wash the above items between housekeeping days, please take care to wash whites with whites only to prevent discolouration and damage.
We also ask that you not use DelSuites linens for cleaning purposes. Any stains or damage to the linens caused by the guest will have charges applied.

YOUR PERSONAL ITEMS
We may move items on counter and table tops to allow for proper cleaning. As such, your items may not end up in the exact same spot. If your bathroom has a medicine cabinet or drawers, we would suggest that you place personal toiletries there.
To facilitate vacuuming and dusting, clothing is handled as follows:
Clothing found on the bedroom or closet floor is placed in the laundry basket provided for that bedroom. Clothing found in bathrooms is placed in the laundry basket in the corresponding bedroom closet. Clothing found on top of the bed is returned to the top of the bed after the sheets have been changed. Clothing found outside the bedroom/bathroom is left in the same room.

Please advise DelSuites if you are using your own linens. We promise to do our best to ensure we do not take your linens when we clean but mistakes can happen.

We place any food or drink debris in the garbage. If there is a food item you prefer to keep on the counter, such as fruit, please place it in a container or store it in a cupboard on cleaning day, to avoid confusion.
If you have a specific question about our housekeeping approach, please give us a call.

 

MAINTENANCE
We have listed some preventative maintenance items to be aware of in order to avoid damage to the suite that could be deemed your responsibility

Climate Control
Heating and air conditioning are switched seasonally by central building equipment. This changeover is pre-scheduled by building maintenance. The individual suite controls will adjust the levels of heating and cooling, but will not allow a change from heating to air conditioning or vice versa. Notices will be posted in the building advising of changeovers.
The recommended temperature settings are a minimum of 65 degrees for cooling and a maximum of 75 degrees for heating. Thermostats are to be set to AUTO. If the fan runs continuously on a lowered setting, there is a risk of freezing in the coils. It can cost upwards of $1500 for repair. Please keep the windows closed when operating the unit. The units are maintained and serviced seasonally by the Building Corporation. If you have any problems with your heat or A/C, please contact your Guest Services Representative.

Appliances
Please do not leave the stove unattended when cooking. Clean spills as they happen. Do not leave the suite when the dishwasher or washing machine is in operation. Watch for and report any leaks immediately. Use the appropriate soap for the dishwasher and washing machines. We have left a small start up supply of dishwashing liquid and dishwasher powder. Using the incorrect soap can cause the machines to overflow and leak.

Energy Conservation
We ask that you turn off lights and the televisions when not in use or if you leave the suite. Additional charges could apply for higher than average consumption of electricity. Click here for more tips

Garbage and Recycling
Housekeeping will remove the garbage and recycling on your scheduled cleaning day. To maintain the freshness of your suite and to prevent insect activity, we ask for your cooperation in removing your garbage and recycling regularly throughout the week. The Garbage Chutes are conveniently located on each floor. Extra costs may be incurred if excessive amounts of garbage or recycling are left for Housekeeping to dispose of. To facilitate proper cleaning of your suite, please remove all refuse and recycling materials (glass, plastic, tin and paper) from your suite on a regular basis. These items can also be taken to the garbage chute on your floor to be recycled. 300 Front St. uses a three component sorter that is incorporated into a single waste/recycling chute. Each floor has one intake door equipped with 3 (three) option buttons that can be set for one of three categories: blue bin, garbage and organics.

Water
Do not let water accumulate or sit on the floor. Water can cause damage very quickly. Clean any water spills immediately. If you have a leak, report it immediately to your Guest Services Representative. Keep the plastic shower liner inside the bathtub during a shower and leave it there until it has completely dried. There are NO floor drains in the bathrooms. There is a bath mat on the side of the tub to stand on after stepping out of the tub. Turn the overhead fan on when showering and continue to let it run until all the condensation has dissipated from the bathroom mirror.

Toilet Issues
When flushing the toilet, hold the handle of the toilet long enough to completely clear the bowl. Please be mindful of the amount of toilet tissue used. If the toilet is clogged, use the plunger. It is placed beside the toilet in the main bathroom of each suite. If the water level continues to rise, turn the water supply OFF immediately and place towels on the floor to absorb any water that flows over. The water supply valves are located behind the toilet. In most cases, using the plunger will clear blockages. If you continue to have problems, contact your Guest Services Representative immediately. Charges may be incurred if a plumber is called and the issue was a result of guest mis-use or carelessness.
