Our COVID cleaning and laundry protocols

Information about the MallorVillas experience, which has been improved with our actual Covid guidelines for cleaning and laundry

Certified turnover cleaning and disinfection for our holiday villas

Our suppliers use only products approved and certified. Suppliers have and can make available data sheets of all the chemicals used in cleaning. Any disinfecting products are applied after the cleaning is made and are left to act for at least 10 minutes before being rinsed with warm water. They never mix two or more different detergents/chemicals.

We use the following products as they are recommended for cleaning and disinfection in the United Kingdom: EN14675 or EN14476 products or EN14476:2013+A2:2019 – the latter have been tested on and found to be effective on SARS-CoV-2. Sodium hypochlorite and 70% Ethanol (Anhydrous Alcohol) are also effective.

The cloths are carefully cleaned and disinfected after each service, as well as differentiated by a color code for each of the areas. The mops and / or mops are carefully cleaned and disinfected after each service.

Our staff will use personal protective equipment: a mask (a certified one), and strong one-use gloves. Cleaners are trained on how to use and remove the PPE as well as the hydroalcoholic use on hands and feet before every cleaning.

During cleaning, the soles of indoors shoes will be disinfected after each cleaning and before leaving the property.

The cleaning staff will always wash hands with water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after the cleaning (before and after putting on the gloves) or, if washing hands is impossible, use an appropriate hand disinfectant.
