Proudly Part of the Staycation Supply Chain
If you run a UK hotel or hospitality venue, you’ll be one of the many thousands of owners, managers and entrepreneurs who are flying the flag for the concept of the staycation this year.
Not only does the sector richly deserve a chance to catch up on revenue and footfall, but we all know how many families, couples and wanderlust solo travellers will be enthused by the idea of staying closer to home while the impact of the pandemic subsides.
In April this year it was reported that nearly 21 million Brits were considering a staycation for 2021, so that’s a whole lot of preparation, cleaning, handover protocol and hygiene regimes to be carried out by hotels, lets, venues and all manner of short term accommodation.
At Orca Hygiene, we’re proud to play a part in the ‘staycation supply chain’, and to be able to assure our hospitality customers of British made products and a rapid-turnaround supply.
We’re based in Scotland and work closely with all our business clients to ensure we recommend and distribute the absolute perfect hygiene solution for your day-to-day needs.
If cleaning for a hospitality venture will be a top priority for you this summer, here are our top tips:
- Establish a protocol for all your team: This will ensure all staff will know the anticipated measures which take place before and after every visitor has used your facility.
- Consider participating in an online cleaning course, designed to help those running holiday lets or hotels, such as the ‘Covid 19 Cleaning Protocols’ course which has been developed in partnership between the Association Of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) and The Professional Association of Self Caterers (PASC).
- Wear, and provide, protective equipment for anyone involved in the cleaning process. As a minimum, masks and visors should be considered for all taking part in clean-down activity. Find our range of face masks and visors here.
- Opt for a high strength virucidal disinfectant for surfaces. This will give you a greater chance of keeping virus free in rooms, passageways and communal areas.
- Use a high strength hand sanitiser throughout the cleaning process, with a high alcohol content, similar to our new rub variant.
- Bag and remove bedding from rooms as quickly as possible and move them for cleaning with minimal contact opportunities.
- Ensure your customers are aware of your cleaning protocol, and also of the part they play in keeping everyone safe. Consider displaying posters such as the NHS poster on ‘What you need to do if you fall ill with COVID-19 symptoms whilst visiting’, which you can find here.
- Prepare for outbreaks. Know how you will respond and what will be your process for a deep cleanse of your venue or property.
