We not only clean the room as we always have meticulously cleaned, now each room is additionally sanitised also. By cleaning first, then sanitising, we can lower the risk of infection to others.

Actions from our side include:

  • Rooms are ventilated before cleaned. Fresh air is circulated for at least 20 minutes and windows open before, during and after the clean.
