COVID-19 Information: Keeping You Safe!

First of all I want to thank each of you for your continued support during this time. Many of our commercial and regularly scheduled homes have maintained and even increased our services during this time understanding the need for cleanliness and sanitation. Our number 1 priority during the Covid19 crisis is keeping our customers and employees safe. To this effect, we are using cleaning and disinfecting materials recommended by the CDC and World Health Organization. These cleaning materials are proven to reduce or eliminate the spread of the Covid19 virus. Our cleaning services provide protection for you and others in your home and we are dedicated to doing our part in reducing the spread of this virus. In addition, our cleaning teams have been instructed in the proper methods of both personal and client protection while our services are performed. Social distancing and enhanced personal hygiene procedures have been mandated. Clearly, we are committed to delivering our cleaning services in the most professional manner possible to keep you and your family safe. Following the recommendations of our nation’s top medical authorities, periodic cleaning of your home and facilities ensures that the spread of the Covid19 virus is minimized. Our entire team is dedicated to helping the Vail Valley through this crisis, ensuring that all of our clients receive the professional service they have come to expect from Sweeping Change. Keeping you safe is my top priority.

Sweeping Change COVID-19 and Procedural Information

I just wanted to reach out to you all and let you know that we are addressing the COVID-19 and what the Sweeping Change standards for cleaning are and what products we use to ensure your property is in the best care.  Please let me know if you would like to schedule your spring clean so we can disinfect your property to the CDC recommended levels.  While we’ve seen a few guest cancellations, I believe that guests will increasingly prefer to travel domestically, drive to their destination, and stay in our professionally cleaned homes.

The processes and requirements we already have in place lead to exceptionally clean homes.

Please see the links below for lists of cleaning products that are particularly effective in preventing virus transmission: (we are using the recommended products)

As always, when cleaning a home, I insist on wearing gloves. And as a reminder, the following elements are part of our standard checklists for cleaning homes:

  1. Wipe down light switches, lamps, cupboard handles, doorknobs, banisters, remotes, and thermostats. These are areas guests have likely touched, so it’s important to wipe them down.
  2. Run all of your dishes and flatware through the dishwasher.
  3. Sanitize/disinfect high-traffic areas like bathroom toilets, sinks and trash cans.
  4. Wipe down all appliances, electronics, and provided amenities.
  5. Run all available linens through the laundry.
  6. Ensure all items you use to clean the home are also clean and in working order.

How experts say to protect yourself against the Coronavirus
There’s a lot of recent alarming news, so it’s important to know the facts. The reality is that the recommendations from the CDC to help prevent illness follow the same common-sense guidelines for avoiding the flu:

Both the CDC and WHO do not recommend the use of masks, since the virus is not airborne.

What happens if a State of Emergency or quarantine is declared in an area where I have a cleaning job?
State of Emergency declarations are typically done for local governments to secure disaster response funding, and do not actually restrict travel. However, I am monitoring the situation, as well as local/national government response. If a particular area is restricted by the government, we may see cancellations of housekeeping jobs.

Thank you for working with us to help prevent infection, keep you and our staff safe, and ensure our guests receive peace of mind by experiencing a professional clean in every home, every stay, every time.
