Cleaning & Disinfecting Suggestions: Frequently Touched Objects.

COVID-19 can live on some surfaces for anything between a few hours to a few days. Because the virus can be transmitted by someone touching an infected surface, cleaning these surfaces becomes a priority.

In a guest room:

Certain objects in a guest room will be touched more frequently by your guests.
  • Air-conditioning- or television remotes
  • Light switches
  • Safes
  • Toilet handles
  • Taps

These should be wiped down with proper disinfectant containing at least 70% alcohol.

Another object you usually forget to clean is the room key, which is touched by both staff and guests.

In common guest areas:

Once again, focus on objects that are frequently touched:
  • Door handles
  • Stair rails
  • Front desk
  • Credit card machines
  • Menus
