Safety and Sanitization
The safety and security of our owners, guests, and the team is our top priority. As always, we are making diligent efforts to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene at our properties. We regularly monitor the CDC and WHO cleaning and sanitization requirements for the coronavirus (COVID-19) to guarantee our team follows them.
Our regular cleaning and sanitization procedures, designed to combat a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19. As a result, we’ve expanded on them to provide an additional level of sanitization to help fight this virus. We have also enhanced our cleaning and sanitizing training, and our team’s personal hygiene, to ensure the utilization of best practices.
To deliver a successful cleaning program at all of our sites, we must support and protect our employees.
Handwashing: To prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria, our crew is routinely reminded to wash their hands properly.
Cleaning each unit requires a new pair of gloves to avoid cross-contamination. When a 6ft social distance is not possible, all visitors and personnel must wear masks.
Smaller units often have one housekeeper. When numerous housekeepers clean a property, they use social distancing. To keep everyone healthy, if a team member reports illness, they must stay home until symptom-free. Masks are necessary for all guests and personnel in public locations.
In the fight against COVID-19, having the correct goods and processes in place is critical.
We clean and sanitize with COVID-19-approved chemicals, including certain hospital-grade sanitizers.
Rooms: Every property’s cleaned and sanitized before another visitor can check-in.
Elevators, door handles, light switches, and room keys are now cleaned and sanitized more frequently.
During this period, we trust that owners and guests would use wise ideas and hygienic practices. During these very unusual circumstances, we must all do our share to limit potential spread and interaction to all parties concerned.
We will continue to closely track recommendations by the CDC and WHO and will adjust our processes as advised.
