List of good cleaning and disinfection gestures for owners of self-catering accommodation in the context of the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

The latest available studies indicate that the Covid-19 virus can remain viable and infectious for several hours and up to several days depending on the surface (72 hours on plastic, 48 hours on stainless steel, 24 hours on cardboard) . The scrupulous respect for the cleaning and disinfection gestures recommended by the O2 Care Services certified company is essential to meet the requirements of families who plan to rent a holiday home this summer:
Inside the accommodation
– Aerate the rooms 15 to 30 minutes minimum (if possible leave the windows open for the duration of the maintenance),
– Before disinfecting the home, clean the surfaces using a cleaning product (water + soap for example),
– Disinfect the soil using a virucide, such as bleach diluted in water
– Disinfect the contact surfaces with the diluted bleach:
Worktop, table, chairs, switches, handles, WC, remote controls, buttons
appliances, doorbell, digital code …
– Clean the dishes and cutlery in the dishwasher (or clean with water and detergent),
– Wash sheets and household linen in a machine at 60 °, or isolate the linen in a separate bag in order to transport it.
• Outside the accommodation
– Dust and clean the exterior surfaces with a cleaning product (water + soap for example) before disinfecting them,
– Disinfect the terrace (e.g. tiling) using a virucide, such as bleach diluted in water.
– Disinfect the contact surfaces with the diluted bleach:
Garden furniture, deckchairs, armrests, bicycle handles, guard rails, railing…
Individual protection products and equipment (PPE) to be used:
– A disposable mask or machine washable (after each use) to avoid any
contamination during home maintenance.
– Gloves: Favor the use of disposable gloves. Throw them away at the end of the
home. In the case of reusable gloves, disinfect them well with bleach before
and after carrying out the maintenance of the home. Make sure to wash your hands before and after using the gloves.
– A cleaning product: Use a usual multi-surface cleaning product on the market.
– A virucidal product: Dilute 5 teaspoons of bleach to 2.6% chlorine with 1 liter of water.
– Adequate equipment: Use rags, mops, disposable sponges or machine washable.
