The health and well-being of our residents, guests, team members and all who visit our properties is Living Rooms highest priority. Living Rooms are following the guidance from Public Health England and the government and are continuously monitoring changes to ensure the actions we take are comprehensive and suitable.

 

CLEANLINESS

 

Our cleaning and hygiene protocols have been reviewed and adapted to the current situation and we have intensified our cleaning efforts on disinfecting, including the disinfecting of all surfaces in apartments, rooms and public areas, with a focus on front of house areas, elevators (and elevator buttons), door handles, public bathrooms, apartment fobs, pens and luggage trollies.

We provide disposable disinfectant wipes to our operational team so they may disinfect surfaces and items between guest interactions. Front of house are also well-equipped with hand sanitisers. PPE are provided to colleagues for use when required. We are conducting Daily meetings with staff with social distancing and regular COVID19 training and new protocols

When a guest requests their apartment to be cleaned by our housekeeping team, they can expect the following:

 

  • The room attendant will be wearing a face mask, gloves and protective equipment on arrival
  • The room attendant will methodically clean the apartment following our standard operating procedures
  • The room attendant will use hospital-grade disinfectant to wipe down all areas to ensure the maximum level of cleanliness

 

If you are unable to vacate the apartment during the cleaning process, we ask for your cooperation in maintaining social distancing. Where possible please vacate the room where the attendant is cleaning.

When a guest checks out, the rigorous cleaning process is carried out and checked against a rigorous checklist.
