SleepHaven Maintenance & Deep Cleaning + The Hosepipe Challenge!

We’ve been really busy lately but recently had a window of opportunity to carry out some much-needed maintenance & deep cleaning of our vehicles and equipment. As part of our Coronavirus protocols, we sanitize the carpet cleaning equipment & vehicle on a daily basis to keep our customers and staff safe but needed to catch up on some of those jobs we put off and do a stocktake of our materials.

The Boys – Got to love the Humour!

The boys were tasked with a list that included washing the vans and equipment, topping up materials, and adding labels to bottles to identify solutions, however, I made a schoolboy error! When asked which ones I replied “Everything” this was something I was going to regret! Taylor & James cracked on washing the vans and was impressed with their enthusiasm and spirit as I could hear them laughing and enjoying their work. Once I finished my emails I went out to inspect their work and just had to smile and see the funny side. When I said “Everything” they took me literally and decided to label everything, including the Vans! Although their spelling was suspect I had to love their sense of humour plus they did a pretty good job to boot!

The Hose Pipe Challenge

When we carry out carpet or upholstery cleaning we get the customer to walk round with us to check our work and make sure that they’re happy with everything before we pack away, this also allows us to point out any issues and offer advice to the customer in regards to the maintenance of their soft furnishings. Once this is completed it’s time to pack away whilst the Air Movers continue to dry the carpets or upholstery. One piece of kit we have to pack away are the hoses, this can be quite tricky and there is an art to it which the boys have been trying to master as part of their continuous training. Being a competitive bunch the “Hosepipe Challenge” has evolved as we compete to put the hoses away in the quickest time, however, I’ve noticed neatness hasn’t come into the equation!
