Lake Tahoe vacation rental bookings are back open and things are filling up fast. If you are looking for a getaway after sheltering in place, the mountains are the perfect place to escape to because you can practice social distancing while still enjoying the fresh air and recreation. You may be wondering how things are working differently, so here is what you need to know.
When booking a Lake Tahoe vacation rental through us, you may be wondering how clean the home you are about to enter actually is. PLTG and Tahoe Property Services is committed to doing everything we can on our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here is what we are doing to keep our employees, guests, and homeowners safe:
-All cleaning crews will be using EPA approved disinfectants, including Prokure V, which is a disinfectant, sanitizer, and virucide that has been approved for and shown to be effective against coronavirus.
-Cleaning crews will be opening doors and windows throughout each clean to allow for the air flow and circulation of fresh air into the home.
-Our cleaning staff will be tackling and focusing on all highly touched surfaces as part of every departure clean. This includes things such as light switches, doorknobs & handles, tables & dining chairs, countertops, faucets & sinks, phones, TV remotes, etc.
-Cleaning crews will be emptying their vacuums at the end of every clean to avoid any cross contamination from one property to another.
-Tahoe Property Services also owns a Vapor Clean Pro6 Duo. This is a steam clean/steam vapor machine that uses a combination of heat and high-pressure to create steam, which penetrates surface pores. We will be using this machine at any property where guests have exhibited signs & symptoms of the virus and it will be used in conjunction with an EPA approved disinfectant.
While other businesses aren’t running like pre-covid times, a majority are open and operating, albeit a little differently. Restaurants and bars have outdoor seating open and available to patrons. While some folks may sit inside, once these types of businesses get to the 50% capacity, they may request that you consider sitting outside to respect social distancing. If you want seating indoors, consider calling ahead to ask about the reservation process.
Grocery stores have partitions, have spaced out self-checkout and have arrows on the ground to help support the appropriate spacing. Banks also have arrows and markings on the ground as well as partitions. Fridays can get busy with a line out the door so if you need to do some banking, consider online or going in earlier in the days when they first open. Retails stores currently are a bit more lenient and while they may have partitions, some have spacing on the floors while others do not. Adventure businesses, gyms and places that support physical activities are making sure to space people out while also disinfecting equipment.
If you have booked a Lake Tahoe vacation rental and want to be mindful of how businesses are operating, feel free to call ahead of time. All of our local businesses and their employees are thrilled to be back open and serving our locals and visitors, however the new regulations and strict guidelines have definitely impacted the way people are working. We all appreciate everyone’s patience as we adapt to this new way of life. For more information booking a vacation rental in Lake Tahoe, feel free to call us. We’d be happy to help!
