COVID Compliance at our Vacation Rentals
COVID! The international bad word, especially when you’re traveling. Airbnb actually sent out a message last year to people who list on their website, and told us to avoid saying it altogether so as not to arouse concerns from people who are traveling. However, it’s something that needs to be addressed. At the same time that they issued that warning about not talking about it, they offered a training course that, once completed, earned your properties a badge that said “enhanced clean.” It means you attest to the fact that you adhere to the proper procedures, according to them, to prevent it.
At Beachside Solutions, we are extremely aware of the risks involved with a “revolving door” vacation rental-type business. We use a hospital-grade disinfectant that kills every disease known to man including HIV, H1N1, and, of course, COVID. We specifically train our employees to concentrate on “high touch” areas like light switches, doorknobs, remotes, even pull strings on fans. All of our properties that we list for rental have the “enhanced clean” badge and, since we also own the cleaning company, we are well aware of all of the latest rules and guidelines issued by the state of Florida.
We have to ensure that we are not only 100% compliant with the minimum guidelines, but we take it a few steps further. And we advertise that strongly because we take pride in it. If you have your property listed with us, your guests are well protected. The tourism industry is the lifeblood of our community and we take that responsibility seriously. We want people to come visit, enjoy the fantastic things we have to offer, and go home in good health with good memories and to come back for more.
