Marion’s European Housekeeping specializes in a uniquely German, highly detailed, well planned approach to cleaning your home. With an emphasis on attention to quality control and disinfectant process control steps, combined with a passion for traditional old school hygienic cleaning.
We follow CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces to kill the Covid-19 virus, using high quality hospital grade disinfectants. Additionally, full PPE is worn during your cleaning by all team members and fresh PPE is used at each client’s house.
Our approach to Covid -19 cleaning includes the following: We are complying with CDC and OSHA health and safety procedures as well as utilizing effective and compliant disinfectants in the process of cleaning. We will pay particular attention to disinfecting doorknobs, light switches, hand railings, countertops, handles and knobs, sinks/faucets, toilet seats, tabletops. Our staff is trained to maintain social distancing and to use protective masks, gloves, and shoe coverings. From start to finish, our teams are trained and prepared to deal with entering your home to safely clean. They are all equipped with PPE and the proper sterilizing chemicals and materials. Our protocol has ALWAYS prevented cross contamination from house to house, but we have further expanded this protocol to protect our client’s event further.
These steps include: All of our employees participated in regular safety meetings to go over the most current CDC cleaning guidelines and additional training to ensure uniform quality results.
Each one of our vehicles is equipped with sanitizing hand-wipes and hospital grade disinfectant spray sanitizer for hard surfaces.
None of our employees have recently traveled to any of the affected countries/cities or have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19.
We ask our employees to stay home if they are not feeling well. Since our teams meet at the office each morning, we check with every team member to make sure they are well, and we will send them home if they are not.
We are waiving the $50 late-notice cancellation/re-scheduling fee if an appointment needs to be postponed because someone is ill in the client’s household.
When Cleaning Each Home: We use fresh gloves and shoe covers for each client. We will dispose of them after each cleaning in the trash at each property.
All microfiber rags/cotton terry rags used to clean each home go in a plastic bag to be washed with the correct amount of bleach and hot water daily following CDC GUIDELINES.
We will disinfect surfaces, especially door handles, light switches and frequently touched objects using hospital grade disinfectant.
All trash collected is disposed in each home in tied up plastic bags.
We use one vacuum bag per home, so nothing is tracked between properties.
We are using HOSPITAL GRADE cleaning agents that are approved by the EPA for use during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that are highly effective in sanitizing all surfaces. All of our teams have been trained to use these products.
We train our team members and encourage our clients to use best practices to reduce the chance of spreading infection, including:
Frequently wash hands with soap and water using a method that removes germs from all parts of the hand, which takes 40 to 60 seconds.
Carry a hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol and use it frequently.
Keep hands away from mouth, nose and eyes – which is how most people get the virus. • Cover mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
We ask that if any client has a household member who is exhibiting flu like symptoms to please notify our office so we can reschedule cleanings until they are well. There will be no cancellation fees for illness related cancellations. Additionally, all our team members have benefits which include paid time off and they will not be scheduled to work, should they become ill, out of an abundance of caution for safety.
