**Please note - due to COVID-19 DelSuites will be following strict protocols related to Housekeeping and other services. Please refer to your arrival notice for the protocols to be followed before and during Housekeeping visits. Services will be modified to ensure the safety and well being of guests and staff**
Housekeeping is provided bi-weekly where applicable and is intended to assist guests in maintaining their home. Dish washing, regular garbage/recycling removal and personal laundry are the Guest's responsibility.
Your scheduled day will be noted on your Arrival letter.
When we visit, we will 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 bags on housekeeping day, throughout your stay.
Refer to the back of your arrival letter for some helpful tips to follow
Contact Guest Services with any special requests or concerns.
Extra charges will apply if extra time or repairs are needed to return the home to the condition it was in at your arrival.
Deep cleanings will be scheduled for our longer stay guests (3 months or more). Contact Guest Services to schedule.
Please note that if you have arrived the day before or are departing the day after a scheduled suite cleaning, you will NOT receive service.
The following linens are replaced once bi-weekly, when used:
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 guests will have charges applied.
Housekeeping will not handle any personal items. To allow for thorough cleaning, please keep surfaces clear of personal items and clutter. If your bathroom has a medicine cabinet or drawers, we recommend that you place toiletries there.
Fresh linens will be left in the suite for you to replace if personal items are found on the bed during service.
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 may 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 we are uncertain, we will not touch the items and a member of the Guest Services Team will reach out to you
If you have a specific question about our housekeeping approach, please contact us
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.
Heating and air conditioning are self-controlled from the thermostat conveniently located in your house. The recommended temperature settings are a minimum of 65 degrees for cooling and a maximum of 75 degrees for heating. Please keep the windows closed when operating the heating and cooling unit.
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.
In the colder months, there is a chance of condensation forming around the windows if the suite is kept too warm. Here are some helpful tips to minimize the condensation and any possible damage in the unit:
If you have any problems with your heat or A/C, please contact your Guest Services Specialist
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.
Using the incorrect soap can cause the machines to overflow and leak as well as costly service calls.
Leave the dishwasher and washing machine doors open slightly when not in use so air can circulate, preventing odours and mildew from forming.
Clean the lint trap inside the dryer after each use as this can be a fire hazard. The lint trap can be found on the inside at the front of the machine.
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.
To facilitate proper cleaning, maintain the freshness of your home and to prevent insect activity, we ask for your cooperation in removing your garbage and recycling regularly.
The garbage and recycling bins are located in the garage.
Garbage will be picked up from the curb every other Friday.
Organics and Recycling will be picked up from the curb weekly on Fridays.
You can fill up the provided bins but please note that they must not be overflowing.
Extra costs may be incurred if excessive amounts of garbage or recycling are left for Housekeeping to dispose of
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 Guest Services.
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.
When flushing the toilet, hold the handle of the toilet long enough to completely clear the bowl.
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
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 Guest Services immediately.
Charges may be incurred if a plumber is called and the issue was a result of guest mis-use or carelessness.
