Sanitary Housekeeping Tasks

PLEASE NOTE: This article provides examples for adding recommended sanitary measures to Inspection Task Templates in CiiRUS. This process presumes knowledge and implementation of the new CiiRUS Task Manager module. If new to CiiRUS Task Manager, review the full product documentation and user manual here before attempting to follow these instructions in the CiiRUS account. This article also assumes competence in navigating the CiiRUS One user interface and working with the table structure to add and edit data. If unconfident with this, view the full CiiRUS One User Guide or contact the CiiRUS Help Center.


There is a handful of creative ways to add sanitary practices to an existing Housekeeping Task Template, including two which will be covered in this module:

  1. Add a new Section to the top of each of the accounts Housekeeping Task Templates. This section will include all the required sanitary processes grouped into one cluster. This is a quick way to amend the template, with an understanding that the cleaner will be asked to tackle all of the sanitary measures first in ONE section. The remaining set of instructions for each room will be unchanged.
  2. Add individual Questions/Requirements to the existing sections, so that each room in the clean has its own set of sanitation steps. This will take much longer, but is the most thorough method to ensure maximum understanding from the cleaners.

The following is an example of #1 above, which is a new Section added to the front of the housekeeping template. This is not a comprehensive list of requirements, but draws from the aforementioned Vrbo guide:

The following is an example of #2, where "sanitation" has been added as an item within the master bedroom, and each subsequent room. Sanitation questions are being asked specific to the articles in each room. This is not a comprehensive list of requirements, not the only way to construct a task/section/item relationship to accomplish this goal, but it draws from the aforementioned Vrbo guide:

NOTE: Once again, these examples are not comprehensive, nor an official recommendation, but they are a reference that can be used for creating sanitary procedures based on the guidelines and materials referenced earlier in the module. Click here to review.
