Services certified for your personal comfort and safety

For the health and safety of the guests as well as the cleaning staff, we recommend that the cleaning is carried out after, at least, 3 hours after the guests check-out.

In the situation of a turnover cleaning after the stay of a person infected with SARS CoV 2 or that might pose an additional risk (e.g. health workers), the cleaning is carried out at least 24 hours after the check-out, the recommended time gap being 72 hours.

Please, communicate in advance - through the service notes - any case of an infected person or that might pose an additional risk.

Suppliers use only products approved for use in the countries/territory they operate. Suppliers have and can make available data sheets of all the chemicals they use in cleaning. Any disinfecting products are applied after the cleaning is made and are left to act for at least 10 minutes before being rinsed with warm water. They never mix two or more different detergents/chemicals.

Los paños son cuidadosamente limpiados y desinfectados después de cada servicio, así como diferenciados por un código de colores para cada una de la áreas. Las mopas y/o fregonas son cuidadosamente limpias y desinfectadas después de cada servicio.
