What is StaySafe@Blue Ribbon Home Program?

Using EPA Approved Disinfectant

We use a hospital-grade, nontoxic, safe product that has been authorized by the US EPA as a registered disinfectant that combats the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) on hard, non-porous surfaces.

Disinfecting High-touch Areas

We disinfect all high-touch areas during cleaning and our SafeHome inspection, paying special attention to door knobs (inside and out), lockboxes or electronics lock panels, stair railings, telephones, light switches, remote controls, arms of chairs, refrigerator door handles, sliding door handles, toilets, faucets and knobs, clothes hangers, touch screens, and play sets/toys etc.

We offer an additional disinfecting fogging service using ULV Cold Fogging technology. We fog the entire house from floor to ceiling, wall to wall, with an EPA approved nontoxic hospital-grade viricide that is safe for all house surfaces. This technique is considered the most effective and safe method to eliminate most bacteria, viruses, and germs including Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Contact us at 352-708-6563 to add this service to your booking.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We protect with PPE and Safety Training. Our staff are trained on safety and expected to wear personal protective equipment (gloves and face masks) at all times while visiting homes for maintenance, housekeeping, or any other purpose.

All staff practice proper handwashing protocols set by the CDC.

If any staff member shows signs of illness, or reports coming into contact with someone who is suspected of having COVID-19, they will not be allowed to work.

We practice social distancing

Non-emergency maintenance requests from guests will be addressed after guest check-out.

In urgent situations, guests will be asked to leave the home or remain in a different room from our staff.

Maintenance staff will wear gloves and masks during service in the home.

If more than one staff member to be present in a home, staff will ensure that proper social distancing protocols are followed.

Linens, & Bedding

The cleaning staff will remove their gloves (safely, as per guidelines) after removing dirty linen, apply hand sanitizer and put on fresh gloves before putting the clean linen on the bed.

We launder bed linens and towels at the highest allowable temperatures and with the correct chemical chemistry for proper cleaning and sanitization.

All pillows will have pillow protectors on them and the mattress will have a mattress pad covering it.
