Sanctuary For Your Guests While Away From Home
COVID-19 has caused our lives to be on pause since early 2020. Now, people all over the world are looking to resume their lives and it is more imperative that hoteliers demonstrate room cleanliness and sanitation to potential guests.
COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets, so blocking moisture, including bodily fluids, from entering the mattress and pillows will be key to ensuring that these surfaces are not contaminated. After all, you can’t put the mattress in a commercial washing machine.
Three easy steps to providing your guests with a room that feels like a sanctuary while away from home:
First, add Bargoose Home Textiles® waterproof pillow protectors. The pillow is the area of the bed most likely to be exposed to respiratory droplets. Not only do these pillow protectors block viruses, but the moisture barrier prevents any liquid from passing through including sweat. Liquid build up in a pillow can lead to early deterioration of the fibers, so blocking that moisture extends the life of your pillow while keeping it sanitary for future guests. Additionally, this barrier when zipped completely will block bed bugs and dust mite allergens.
Second, add a bed bug proof mattress encasement. Encasements should be installed then left on the mattress and washed every 12-18 months. Encasements provide the highest levels of hygiene as they completely envelope the mattress for unparalleled protection and prevention. The membrane material used in the construction of the cover is so effective at blocking particles and fluids that it has passed independent lab tests (ASTM F1670-08(2014)e1) to ensure it meets the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) standard. This is the same test used on surgical gowns laboratory coats, coveralls, vests, jackets, aprons, surgical gowns, and full bodysuits. Bargoose Home Textiles® BedBug Solution® mattress encasements feature our patented bed bug proof BugStop Seal℗, they prevent bed bugs from entering or exiting your mattress, as well as dust mites, allergens, and bacteria. These encasements are bed-bug bite proof as well. Bargoose Home Textiles’s most popular encasements are our Elite or Hybrid Encasements. These may be paired with our BedBug Solution Box Spring Protector or 6 Gauge Vinyl Encasements for the box spring.
Finally, cover your encased mattresses with a waterproof mattress pad. Bargoose Home Textiles® offers fitted waterproof mattress pads that are easy to install and remove. Housekeeping can simply remove the mattress pad along with the bedding after each guest checks out. Bargoose’s waterproof mattress pads can then be put directly into the laundry to be cleaned. This added layer of protection will help to ensure that any dust mites, allergens, or pathogens present do not make it to the mattress where they could be present for another guest.
Hotel guests are concerned about their health now more than ever before. Hoteliers that are investing in their guests’ safety and well-being will win back business as consumers begin to travel again. Bargoose Home Textiles® can help properties provide a healthy sanctuary for their guests in just three simple steps, while saving properties money in cleaning, guest remediation, extermination, and replacement.For more information, email us at email@example.com
