Back to Owner advice

Prior to guests returning following the initial lockdown period, we created a cleaning guide that we shared with our owners back in May 2020. We have now updated this guide to review the publicly available information published by the UK government and NHS, as well as industry bodies. We are pleased to share it with any holiday let owner that may benefit from it.

The guide has been designed to provide you with practical considerations that you could apply to your cleaning procedures in light of coronavirus, with even greater focus on the cleaning standards within each property. It includes detail on:

  • Personal protective equipment
  • Cleaning products
  • Pre-opening checks
  • Additions to the property
  • Decluttering
  • Cleaning considerations

Recognised advice and schemes 

Last year we also outlined two schemes for our owners to consider as well as some detailed checklists from industry groups.

Visit Britain’s “We’re Good to Go” scheme – an online self-certification scheme. Certificates will be available for you to use shortly after the completion of the registration process. For our owners who secure certification, we add the ‘We’re good to go’ logo to the property listing online.

Quality in Tourism Safe, Clean and Legal scheme - this has been running for three years and has been enhanced further due to COVID 19. The Safe, Clean & LegalTM scheme includes cleaning checklists, protocols and template risk assessments, all of which have been approved by the Environmental Health Officer at Cornwall Council as part of the Primary Authority Partnership they have with that council, details of which can be read here. Again, for our owners who join the scheme, we will add the QiT logo to their property listing.

In addition, PASC has shared some template cleaning guidelines which can be reviewed here. ASSC have also provided some cleaning protocols for self-catering accommodation here.
