Daily Interior Cleaning Tasks
The interior of a yacht is cleaned almost constantly throughout the day, especially if you have guests onboard. Here is a list of common tasks you can expect to complete throughout the day:
Your new BFF. On yachts you don’t only vacuum the floors, but in some cases the ceiling, walls, ornaments and finally the carpets. You’ll even vacuum the vacuum cleaner, and no we aren’t joking.
The best process for dusting, like vacuuming, is starting at the top and working down. Remove appliances from their surfaces, pickup objects off tables, nothing gets left untouched.
Windows and Mirrors:
You will quickly learn that mirrors and windows are some of the hardest things to clean, and keep clean. Ensure you spray your desired product onto a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Use this cloth to wipe your product onto the window or mirror. Be sure to buff with a dry cloth in circular motions to ensure no dirt or residue was left behind.
Silver and Glass Wear:
Be sure to wash the object with a sponge and warm soapy water for glass, rinse well to remove all residue and buff dry straight away. For silver, you’ll want to do the same but incorporate a weekly silver polish solution.
