Enhanced cleaning procedures

In order that our guests feel safe while staying at The Yellow House we have implemented he following cleaning and disinfecting procedures in line with the recommendations from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control 

General precautions

Before cleaning, the cleaners wash their hands and put on impermeable, disposable gloves.  Cleaners avoid touching their face during the clean, gloves are thrown away after each clean, cleaners wash their hands immediately after gloves are removed and air and ventilate the property during and after cleaning. There is also a minimum buffer time of 6 hours between stays.

High-touch surfaces

Examples of high-touch surfaces include:

Tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, handrails, light switches, wardrobe and cabinet handles
Kitchen surfaces, utensils, cutlery and crockery
Bathroom surfaces, toilet seats, flushes, sinks and taps, cooking controls
Bedroom surfaces, bedside tables, parts of the bed frames
Refuse, recycling bins and any waste disposal containers and cleaning equipment

High-touch surfaces are cleaned and disinfected after each stay using a two-step approach. First a detergent or soap and hot water for visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection to kill germs on surfaces.

Low-touch surfaces

Floors, walls, blinds and other low-touch surfaces are cleaned using hot water and detergent. Mopped or wiped down from one end of the surface to the other. 

Towels, linens and other laundry

Disposable gloves are worn when handling dirty laundry and discarded after each use. Care is taken not to shake dirty laundry. Items are washed using the warmest setting and dried completely.

Protecting yourself and others

Antibacterial soap will be provided for each sink and hand sanitiser gel for rooms without sinks.

Masks and gloves can be bought from Cristina.

Staying safe outside your home – gov.uk

Wash your hands often for 20 seconds using soap and water, and dry them thoroughly. Where available, use sanitiser outside your home, especially as you enter a building and after you have had contact with surfaces.

Avoid touching your face.

Public Health England recommends trying to keep two metres away from people as a precaution.

The key thing is to not be too close to people for more than a short period of time, as much as you can.
