Our cleaning and sanitising procedure before guests arrival
We ventilate rooms before cleaning. Allow fresh air to circulate for at least 20 minutes. If possible, leave all windows open during the entire cleaning process.
We wash our hands thoroughly before and after each cleaning.
We use soap and water, and scrub for at least 20 seconds. If that’s not possible, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
We wear disposable gloves while we clean. Gloves are thrown out after each cleaning.
We dishwash all crockery and cutlery items.
We machine-wash cleaning supplies at the highest heat setting appropriate for the material.
We clean, then disinfect.
We focus on frequently touched surfaces.
Light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, and faucet handles.
Sofas, rugs, drapes, and other soft, porous surfaces.
We wash all linens at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer, bed sheets, mattress & pillows protectors, hand, bath & tea towels, kitchen towels, and blankets. Wear gloves when handling dirty laundry.
Fresh laundry bags X 3 (bed linen, towels & protectors) – for guests to place linen at the end of their stay.
We disinfect the vacuum cleaner & steam cleaner, along with other cleaning appliances like the dishwasher and washing machine.
We’ll remember to check the expiration dates on supplies.
