From “Ask Kit!”:
Q: When it comes time to purchase a B&B, how do I find out the correct cleaning chores and requirements that are necessary to ensure proper cleanliness of rooms? Is the local health department a source I can go to in order to find this out?
A: The innkeeper of the inn you buy should help you with that. The local health department may also be a good resource. A local janitorial supply store will be a good resource too. Of course, the professional B&B associations you join will be great resources as well. I also have a checklist you can buy (go to my site at http://www.TheBAndBLady.com/e-books.html) that will help you not only with your cleaning chores but also job descriptions and duties.
