Reviewing and improving your cleaning practices and standards isn’t optional if you want to appeal to guests in a post-COVID-19 world. In our last article, we zoomed in on the distinction between cleaning, sanitisation and disinfecting. They are not the same thing, even though the words seem to get used interchangeably.
