COVID SAFETY

The safety of our guests and our staff is our top priority.  Green Acres Retreat adheres to all CDC,
American Hotel and Lodging Association, and AirBNB cleaning guidelines.
Below are some of the steps we take to ensure your stay with us is safe and enjoyable. 

Our cleaning checklist

  • We ventilate rooms before cleaning.

    • Allow fresh air to circulate for at least 20 minutes. If possible, leave all windows open during the entire cleaning process.

  • All staff wash hands thoroughly before and after each cleaning.

    • Use soap and water, and scrub for at least 20 seconds. If that’s not possible, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Wear disposable gloves while we clean.

    • Gloves should be thrown out after each cleaning. And make sure to wash your hands immediately after gloves are removed.

  • We are fully stocked on paper towels, disinfectant wipes, and other disposable cleaning supplies.​

  • Clean, then disinfect.

    • Cleaning is when we use soap or detergent and water to remove dirt, germs and impurities. Disinfecting refers to the use of cleaning agents we use to kill germs. Doing both is the best way to reduce the spread of infection.

  • Use the right disinfectant.

    • Diluted household bleach solutions, cleaning products with at least 70% alcohol, and most common disinfectants registered by the Environmental Protection Agency are believed to be effective against the coronavirus.

  • We focus on frequently touched surfaces.

    • Light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, and faucet handles are just a few of the areas we focus on disinfecting.

  • We always clean sofas, rugs, drapes, and other soft, porous surfaces.

    • Carefully remove any visible dirt or grime, then use the appropriate cleaner for the material. When possible, we machine-wash items according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  • We wash all linens at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer.

    • That includes bed sheets, mattress covers, hand and bath towels, kitchen towels, and blankets. Wearing gloves when handling dirty laundry.

  • We clean and disinfect laundry baskets and hampers.​

  • We empty the vacuum cleaner after every cleaning.

    • Disinfect the vacuum cleaner, along with other cleaning appliances like the dishwasher and washing machine.

  • We check the expiration dates on our supplies.
