COVID-19 CLEANING & HYGIENE PRACTICES
Since remaining open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as an Essential Business our processes for cleaning the rooms, public areas and ensuring our team and our guests are safe have been our utmost priority.
We not only clean the room as we always have meticulously cleaned, however now each room is sanitised also. By cleaning first, then sanitising, we can lower the risk of infection to others.
Actions from our side include:
- Cleaning teams wear disposable gloves at all times while they clean.
- Rooms are ventilated before cleaned. Fresh air is circulated for at least 20 minutes and windows open before, during and after the clean.
- All team members wash their hands thoroughly on arrival to work, and whenever changing disposable gloves.
- The rooms are cleaned per our normal high standards and then sanitised. All frequently touched surfaces, light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, and faucet handles are wiped using a disinfectant with a new cloth for each guest room.
- Pots and pans have been removed from the room - however are available on request basis
- All linen is either sent out to a commercial laundry or washed in-house. Gloves are worn when handling dirty laundry, and care taken to avoid shaking laundry, which could increase the spread of germs.
- Rubbish bins have bin liners. Placing bags into trash bins will make it easier to dispose of tissues and other waste.
- All cleaning cloths are washed internally on the hottest settings possible for the material.
