Housekeeping - Everything You Need to Know


Most properties have housekeeping staff whose purpose is to check and clean accommodations. With the Housekeeping functionality myfrontdesk makes it easy to check the room condition, front desk status, assign a housekeeper and generate a list of all the rooms and their statuses. This list can then be printed and handed to the housekeeper to start making their rounds.

How Housekeeping Module works

The room will be marked as dirty:

  1. Automatically after 2 am if the room is occupied (has In-House status)
  2. When a property checks out a guest (changes the status of the reservation to 'Checked Out')
  3. The guest moves to another room (if guest is checked in to room A and he moves to room B - room A becomes dirty)
