Enhanced Cleaning Protocols

Here at Rumbling Bald, we are keenly aware of the concerns visitors, staff, homeowners, and the local community have regarding cleanliness and safety. In light of these concerns, we are actively following the CDC guidelines and recommendations on the steps that can be taken to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Offering clean and safe rental homes has always been our top priority. We instituted enhanced cleaning protocols and will continue to place an emphasis on our cleaning practices and policies. Here are some of the steps we take between each visit to ensure your home will be sanitized, clean, and disinfected:

  • Our cleaning staff wears gloves and face covers while in our properties.
  • All hard surfaces and high touched areas are cleaned with household disinfectants including doorknobs, handles, toilets, and faucet knobs, light switches, handrails, remote controls, lockboxes, electronics, thermostats, game areas, furniture, kitchen cabinets, and refrigerators, etc.
  • All bed, bathroom, and kitchen linens are professionally laundered on the Sanitation Cycle and installed with care.
