Procedure For Extra Bed and Sofa Bed Placement in Rooms

As a housekeeper, it is important to ensure that all guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. One way to do this is by providing extra beds or sofa beds for those who may need them.

When making an extra bed, it’s important to ensure that the bedding is clean and fresh. Start by laying out the fitted sheet, making sure that it is smooth and free of any wrinkles. Next, add the flat sheet and tuck it in tightly at the foot of the bed.

After that, add the blanket and any additional pillows or comforters. Finally, make sure to add a decorative touch by adding a throw pillow or two.

When making a sofa bed, follow similar steps as making an extra bed. Start by removing any cushions and laying out the fitted sheet. Then, add the flat sheet and tuck it in tightly around the cushions.

After that, add the blanket and any additional pillows or comforters. Finally, place the cushions back onto the sofa bed and add any decorative touches such as throw pillows or blankets.

By ensuring that your guests are provided with comfortable sleeping arrangements, you are sure to receive positive feedback and repeat business.

Make extra beds / Rollaway beds:

  • Only Sheets and blankets are used for making the extra bed.
  •  Refer to the room boy allocation sheet to find out which the list room numbers the extra bed is to be placed in.
  • The procedure for making an extra bed is similar to that of standard bed making.
  •  Place the blanket and tuck it and the top sheets tightly at the foot and then on both sides of the bed.
  •  Bed sheets may be larger than the extra bed mattress and may require special care when tucking on all sides to give a smooth appearance.
  •  Place the pillows neatly on the bed and check the overall appearance of the bed.

Sofa / Wall Bed:

  • Check the room allocation sheet to find out if a wall bed is to be set up.
  •  Be careful to avoid injury when opening sofa beds/wall beds.
  •  Check the room allocation sheet to find out if a wall bed is to be set up.
  •  A wall bed folds up into the wall and looks like a bookshelf when folded.
  •  If a guest plans to use the room during the daytime then remove the pillows from the sofa bed and then fold it into a sofa.
  •  Place the pillows on the closet shelf or the drawer below the luggage rack.
