The consultation of professionals within the cleaning industry in the selection of sterilising products, along with the search for effective cleaning techniques, not only stems from the need to combat coronavirus, but is actually a process that began around ten years ago.
In our b&b we have always strived to achieve the optimum in the cleaning and sterilisation of our environment.
We would like to emphasise that, even when incurring economic loss, we at Vanessa House b&b implement all legal obligations to avoid the spread of the infection.
The products used
Over the years we have tried and tested many products for cleaning rooms and sanitising in general.
After many trial runs, and many tips from professionals within the sanitation sector, who work alongside us, we decided upon the products we are currently using.
As indicated in the photo above, we use medical-grade equipment and cleaning agents. These professional products eliminate, due to daily use, any bacteria and viruses present on the surfaces in the rooms.
The rooms of the b&b
Rooms where people spend time in close contact with each other are always sources of spreading viruses and bacteria.
Vanessa House b&b has only three rooms and, as such, even when fully occupied, the number of guests would never exceed ten people.
All rooms have independent entrances from our car park and are located separately from each other in different areas of the villa.
For the breakfast buffet, we have three outdoor tables arranged in the pool area, with sufficient distance from each other.
The pool area is spacious enough to allow for reasonably sufficient distances between the occupants of the three rooms to be maintained.
Unless otherwise requested by guests, the rooms are cleaned daily.
The rooms are disinfected and the rooms aired every day.
The cleaning cloths and solutions we use are replenished daily, mirroring the same protocols employed in the cleaning of hospital environments.
Sheets and towels are replaced at least every three days or sooner, if the situation requires it.
Towels and blankets
All towels, sheets, all tablecloths and most of the blankets are washed directly in our b&b with professional sterilising detergents.
All blankets too large to be washed in an 11 kg washing machine are taken to a laundry room located near the b&b.
Every morning, around 6:30 am, the entire base and side walls of the pool are meticulously cleaned with an underwater robot.
Each morning all the necessary checks are also carried out to ensure maximum water quality of the pool, whilst the acidity and chlorine values are also monitored and adjusted as required.
Disclaimer on sterilisation of environments
We at Vanessa House always pride ourselves in maintaining exceptional standards of hygiene and cleanliness, and have done so for many years prior to the recent Coronavirus outbreak. We would, however, like to point out that no cleaning regime can completely guarantee total sterilisation of an environment against this or any other virus.
We will, however, continue to uphold the highest possible standards of hygiene, for the benefit and peace of mind of all of our guests.
