At HostRooster, we prioritize the safety and well-being of both our hosts and guests. To ensure a clean and safe environment, we've developed a 4-step enhanced cleaning process that all hosts are required to follow between guest stays. This process is in addition to local laws and guidelines. By following these steps, you can help create a clean and welcoming space for your guests.
Step 1: Prepare
Proper preparation is essential to clean efficiently and safely. Before you begin cleaning, make sure to:
- Ventilate the space before and during cleaning when possible.
- Use disinfectants approved by your local regulatory agencies for use against COVID-19.
- Always read the directions and warnings on your cleaning products carefully.
- Wash or disinfect your hands thoroughly.
Step 2: Clean
Cleaning involves removing dust and dirt from surfaces, such as floors and countertops. During this step, make sure to:
- Sweep, vacuum, dust, and/or mop areas before sanitizing.
- Wash dishes and laundry on the highest heat setting possible.
- Wipe down hard surfaces with soap and water.
Step 3: Sanitize
Sanitizing is the process of using chemicals to reduce bacteria on surfaces, including high-touch areas like doorknobs and TV remotes. Here's what to do:
- Spray high-touch surfaces in each room with an approved disinfectant spray.
- Allow the disinfectant to stand for the duration specified on the product label.
- Let the surface air-dry to ensure effectiveness.
Step 4: Check
After sanitizing, it's important to double-check your cleaning to ensure you haven't missed anything. Here's how to do it:
- Refer to the best practices in each room-by-room checklist provided in your handbook to ensure you haven't overlooked any areas.
- Share these best practices with your hosting team and cleaning professionals to maintain consistency.
