How the Coronavirus has Created Opportunities for Short-Term Rental Owners
There’s still a demand for your properties. You just need to find your new target market and assure them that your properties are safe and clean. But who are your target guests now?
There are now many people that are having to self-isolate for various reasons. They’re in immediate need of a place to separate themselves from others. This increases the demand for your short-term rental properties as they’re looking for a safeguarded place to stay during this period.
This is an opportunity to not only provide help for people in need but also to save your business.
What matters most is the safety of your properties and what you do to market them. This is the part where Keezark stands by your side, shoulder to shoulder, to save your business and help the hospitality community.
Keezark Helps You Safeguard Your Guests
As we have promised, we handle housekeeping procedures by working with top local cleaning companies. It has always been one of our foremost priorities to make sure your properties are sufficiently cleaned. Now that everybody is washing hands and cleaning surfaces, we are taking it even more seriously than ever.
How Keezark Manages Enhanced Cleaning Procedures
As the COVID-19 spreads, the cleaning companies we work with, adhere to comprehensive health and safety policies. They also use updated instructions advised by health organisations. For instance, we know that if a person touches a contaminated surface and then puts their hands on their face with it, there’s a chance they might become infected. So, all the surfaces, especially the high-contact areas are cleaned and sanitised more meticulously than ever.
Some of the companies we work with are also using special ways to do a property-wide sanitisation and deeply clean everywhere, even the areas that can’t be reached easily.
All the cleaning staff are also using masks and gloves. This reduces the risk of passing the infection to more people.
As the GOV.UK suggests, it is important to use the warmest water setting while washing the linens, bedspreads and sheets. Fortunately, all these items are washed in accordance with this instruction.You’re in safe hands as we continue to work with a team of experts that consistently update their guidelines.
What You Can Do to Protect Your Guests from COVID-19
Another thing you can do to improve your guests’ health and safety is to inform them of the precautions they need to take to protect themselves from getting infected.
The virus spreads mainly from person to person. So, it is vital for your guests to keep their distance and be aware of the necessary actions they must take. Below, there’s a list of the actions they can take to protect themselves:
- Wash your hands regularly with water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
- In case there’s no access to water and soap, you can use hand sanitisers with 60% alcohol.
- Try to avoid touching your face, nose, mouth, and eyes.
- Minimise close contact with others as much as possible.
- Cover your mouth while coughing or sneezing. Don’t forget to throw the tissue away and wash your hands.
- Clean and disinfect the surfaces.
