The beautiful blue pool on the rooftop or the veranda creates a magical experience for your guests. For every hotel, the experience is important for them – reviews of an excellent stay and the comfort of the stay. No one wants to see negative feedbacks and hate emails, so keeping your hotel premises clean is important. Everything should be squeaky clean in order to entice people to book a room and enjoy the stay.
For now, this article covers the pool area
The pool area is one of the main attractions in every hotel, and modern hotels make it unique and fun as possible. Some would even incorporate it in the architecture and make it look otherworldly and fantasy-themed. Or some would model it out of ancient castles and cities – the pool functions both as a decoration and an activity.
Cleaning the pool isn’t as easy as just scooping the leaves and dead bugs off, it requires proper treatment and chemicals to get rid of the bacteria and disgusting microscopic things swimming in there. You don’t want your guest to complain a few hours later about a rash they got from your seeming clean pool – it will definitely dent the ratings and the reputation of your hotel.

Maintaining your pool:
- Make sure that you check the levels of pool chlorine or bromine levels every four hours. This is crucial especially when you have dozens of different people using it. You should also pay attention to the pH levels of the pool every four hours. Aside from these, you can check the water temperature every four hours as well. This will make cleaning easier for you.
- Everyday, before and after the pool area opens, make sure that you clean the surrounding areas of the pool and the pool itself. Clear up the fallen leaves, dead bugs, and other debris in the pool. You also need to check the water level to ensure that it’s still the same level as specified.
- Once or twice a week, you can also clean the waterline, ideally don’t wait for the stains to appear before cleaning it up. Make sure you also hoover and brush the pool when you can to keep it clean and clear.
