When you step into your hotel room and examine the fresh, clean sheets, towels, and spotless room, do you ever think about the person or people who were behind it all? Housekeepers oftentimes work 12- hour days, get up early, and/or stay at work late to make sure that you're living in a clean and healthy environment. Housekeepers aren't only employed by hotels, they work at hospitals, universities, businesses and, if you're lucky, you have one for your own home. These hard-working individuals are definitely in need of some recognition! Luckily, they have a whole week dedicated to them! International Housekeeping Week is celebrated on the week of September 14-20.
