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:
- Air-conditioning- or television remotes
- Light switches
- Toilet handles
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:
- Door handles
- Stair rails
- Front desk
- Credit card machines
