Measures for Covid-19 (and general cleanliness measures)
ONE USE PER DAY FOR EACH ROOM
Throughout the pandemic, all rooms and suites at Xcite hotels are given once a day in case of half-stays.
This does not apply to overnight stays.
Our main priority is to ensure the quality criteria of cleanliness in our hotel units.
We work with the leading clothing cleaning and ironing companies in Greece.
We have the most advanced professional cleaning machines.
We use branded disinfection products, adapted to the strict standards for dealing with the coronavirus.
All rooms and common areas of our hotel units are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily after each use.
Our staff (housekeepers) are highly qualified and trained with technical skills aimed at ensuring hygiene.
VENTILATION AND DISINFECTION OF ALL AREAS AND SURFACES AFTER EACH USE
Wearing disposable masks and gloves, our maids take care of the proper cleaning and disinfection of the rooms and common areas.
We ventilate the rooms continuously and use hot water with professional disinfectant liquids paying special attention to surfaces that our guests touch most often, such as switches, knobs, remote controls and faucet handles.
We remove all visible and invisible stains from any surface with appropriate cleaners and wash all dishes and items in the washing machine according to each manufacturer’s instructions.
ADDITIONAL ROOM DISINFECTION WITH KARCHER STEAM CLEANERS
Steam kills 99.99% of all bacteria. Sometimes, the best way to get rid of bacteria is the simplest: hot steam.
Powerful steam jet combined with high temperature, powerful nozzles and heated cleaning cloths ensure that Kärcher steam cleaners kill 99.99% of all common bacteria, on hard surfaces, floors, tiles, joints , mirrors etc.
This was confirmed in the context of research by the distinguished Enders laboratory in Stuttgart. .
With these results, the common bacteria found in hotels have no hope.
WE PROVIDE PLENTY OF FREE HAND SANITIZER
Hand sanitizer has become one of our best friends lately and its use is now considered essential.
We at Xcite hotels offer you completely free and in abundant quantity the top quality liquid disinfectant “Purell” which you will find in special non-contact machines that are placed on each floor separately as well as at the reception.
The antiseptic of the company “Purell” is skin-friendly, thus making its continuous use appropriate.
SHEETS, BLANKETS, TOWELS AND BATHROOMS IN SEALED PACKAGING
Continuing our already existing policy, as is also the case with the rest of the hygiene maintenance measures we follow, we remind you that towels, sheets, blankets and bathrobes are kept in airtight and antimicrobial storage bags until they are used by the visitors.
All our guests are also provided with packaged disposable slippers, masks and hand sanitizer.
After each use, a specific method of cleaning and disinfecting the above is followed and placing them again in new packaging.
In this way we ensure the avoidance of germ transmission and successfully deal with the spread of the coronavirus.
BLACKLIGHT LAMPS WITH EXTREME UV RADIATION
THE ROOMS AND SUITES OF XCITE HOTELS HAVE UV LAMPS.
It has been scientifically proven that UV (ultraviolet) light contains just the right amount of energy to “break” the molecular structure of microorganisms.
As the microorganisms pass through the UV radiation (which is emitted by the UV lamp), they are neutralized at the cellular and genetic level and this results in their destruction.
Such microorganisms are microbes, viruses, bacteria and fungi.
STERILIZATION OF ROOM ACCESS CARDS WITH LIQUID DISINFECTANT AND UV RAYS
The safe stay of our guests starts from their arrival.
According to expert research, a very important source of germ transmission is the keys and entry cards to hotel rooms.
We at Xcite Hotels simply continue our already existing tactic, even more intensively now, to always disinfect each room’s access card before and after each use.
We are also strengthening this tactic by adding the method of germ-neutralizing the cards with UV rays.
You simply trust us for your stay.
SEPARATOR PROTECTION AGAINST VIRUS TRANSMISSION
The additional new security measures taken by the hotels of the Xcite Group, in order to protect customers and employees from the risk of the spread of the coronavirus, include the installation of special plexiglass protective partitions at the reception as well as the necessary use of gloves.
By placing the barriers, the risk of transmission of the coronavirus (Covid-19) is significantly reduced for both the employee and the customer served at the reception.
