All types of businesses are taking advanced steps to enhance their cleaning and sanitation procedures. You may have seen what companies are doing on their websites, on televisions commercials, or on social media. The hospitality industry is no exception in learning about and incorporating new disinfecting steps into their properties. One particular linen we wanted to focus on that can help in slowing the spread of germs is pillow protectors. It is a product that can be overlooked when preparing bedding for guests, but it is vital in this day and age. We will highlight the importance of pillow protectors, how to wash them, popular pillow protectors, and similar products that can help keep your bedding protected.
Since there are so many choices out in the marketplace on pillows, innkeepers are always concerned about purchasing the correct and best pillows for their Inn. We usually can solve these concerns by speaking to them about their options and budgets and sending them samples to try. The truth is that everyone has different likes and dislikes when it comes to pillows. So we will always advise to have a few different styles of pillows in each room and extra styles/sizes on hand.
Size of Pillows
The size of bed pillows you choose will depend on the size of the bed and the preferences of your guests and how they sleep. In general, for a twin size bed, a standard pillow would be the correct size. For a queen bed two queens is a preference and for a king bed two king pillows would fit best on the bed. We always suggest having 2 pillows in the room for each guest. It would be best to have a soft (down-like) pillow and a medium firm pillow. It is always good to have available a few down pillows and a few firm pillows (in standard, queen & king) on hand for those guests who prefer “real down” or very firm pillows. Also, guests sleeping on a king bed may prefer a smaller pillow then a king. Having these extra pillows on hand in different fills and sizes is a thoughtful accommodation for your guests who will appreciate your consideration of their sleeping needs. On our site we have a pillow menu that may help with making pillow choices for your particular property. Guests appreciate it when they can have the pillow of their choice to ensure a good night’s sleep.
