How are we handling COVID-19?
In order to make your stay as safe as possible this summer, our normal procedures will need to change. We ask for your patience and flexibility as we work through this process.
This season we have hired a new cleaning company and they are taking disinfecting VERY seriously. Back in March they announced their cleaning process for rentals this year. They purchased several electrostatic sprayers and disinfecting chemicals that disinfect soft surfaces (couches, beds, rugs) with a fine mist. You can learn more about this product here. In addition to spraying the soft surfaces and doing the normal turnover cleaning, they will also be disinfecting all high-contact surfaces. This includes everything from remote controls to light switches, door knobs, thermostats etc. While this service comes at an added cost to us, we feel that our guests’ health and peace of mind are worth it.
As of today (5/29/2020) our cleaners do NOT believe they will need extra time. However, should their requirements change we may ask our guests to delay check-in until 3:00pm or 4:00pm (instead of our usual 2:00pm). If our cleaners determine they need the extra time we will let you know prior to your stay. We have also tried to determine how best to deal with items like pillows, blankets and comforters. There isn’t a safe and timely way to disinfect things like pillows between guests in addition to cleaning blankets and comforters. Due to storage limitations, we are asking our guests to bring their own pillows. Unfortunately we just don’t have a place to store 14 pillows. We have two sets of comforters that our crew will swap out between guests. We are also asking guests to please wash the blankets in the morning before leaving. If you don’t have time to dry them before you go our cleaners will put them in the dryer for the next guest. We realize this is far from ideal and we are doing our best to address it, but we wanted to prepare you for our “new normal”.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding in this confusing time. We are looking forward to another great summer at the Jersey Shore and we hope you are too.
