Implement Changes to cleaning policy
We always strive to maintain extremely high standards of cleanliness at Bay View House. Under normal conditions we also strive to maintain high standards of sustainability where possible. We recognise that at this time some sustainable practices will need to be compromised. For example, washing and reusing cleaning cloths and using mostly natural cleaning products. We promise to resume these practices as soon as it is safe to do so however for the duration of the Corvid-19 outbreak we have decided to adopt the cleaning practices recommended by Public Health England (PHE) for Cleaning in Non-Healthcare Settings https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-decontamination-in-non-healthcare-settings/covid-19-decontamination-in-non-healthcare-settings
As guests may not exhibit symptoms until after they return home, we will treat every clean as if the guests had potentially been infected. Therefore, we will:
To Protect our Cleaning Team we will:
There is a delay of at least 72hrs before used linen is collected by the laundry service providing an adequate buffer to protect their staff.
This policy will be reviewed monthly until the Government advises that the Covid-19 threat has passed.
What we kindly ask from our Guests:
Many Thanks and we hope you enjoy your stay at Bay View House.
