UAE-based hospitality company Time Hotels has partnered with hygiene solutions provider Diversey to implement enhanced sanitisation measures.
The new measures, called Sanitised & Ready, will be rolled out across all properties of Time Hotels in the UAE Saudi Arabia and Egypt, reported online news portal Trade Arabia.
Steps will include implementing intensified sanitisation procedures for cleaning common areas and individual guestrooms.
Once the guest rooms are cleaned, Sanitised & Ready’ stickers will be pasted on the door locks.
The hotels will specially focus on cleaning all hard surfaces and frequent contact points such as door handles, elevator buttons, reception counters and door frames every 30 to 45 minutes.
A dedicated housekeeping assistant will be assigned to each individual area to ensure the implementation of the procedures.
Time Hotels CEO Mohamed Awadalla was quoted by the publication as saying: “‘Sanitised & Ready’, which fully complies with all government and public health directives, aims to ensure a safe, healthy and comfortable stay for our valued guests as well as protecting the wellbeing of our dedicated team members.
“As we prepare for the full recovery of the UAE, and indeed, wider Mena region’s hospitality industry, this new initiative is being fully embedded into our daily operations, making all increased sanitisation and cleaning measures standard practice rather than just a precautionary measure.”
Several hotel chains have implemented improved cleanliness measures due to increasing concerns following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Earlier this week, the two Taj hotels in Dubai has adopted enhanced safety and hygiene measures.
