Thinking of taking a vacation this year? Throughout the year, Carolina Retreats has implemented additional measures to ensure that all of our vacation properties across the board meet our strictest guidelines ever. In anticipation of your arrival, we wanted to highlight our cleaning practices. We use cleaning and disinfecting products that meet or exceed performance standards outlined by the Center for Disease Control. Regardless of the length of stay, every property is professionally cleaned with these materials and standards before your arrival.
Upgrading Property Cleaning Protocols
Continuing to provide our guests with the utmost care is a goal we care deeply about here. Every member of our cleaning department has undergone additional cleaning training measures. Every room, regardless of use, will undergo a complete wipe down as if they were a high trafficked area. We do not and will not cut any corners in securing our guests’ safety.
The CDC has released guidelines for everyday preventive steps in households.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Be prepared if your child’s school or childcare facility is temporarily dismissed or for potential changes at your workplace.

In-House Cleaning Facility
Creating the cleanliest stays possible is always a priority of ours. We are proud to have our own in-house, 3000 sq. ft. cleaning facility solely dedicated to cleaning linens. This is truly one of our flagship amenities. Not every vacation rental company can offer you the comfort of providing their own staff solely tasked with washing & drying every linen provided. By not outsourcing our fresh linens, less hands are likely to interact with guest stays. Especially non Carolina Retreats personnel. Our trained staff and cleaning standards remain a point of pride in our hygiene practices.
For 2020, we will be shrink wrapping all sheets and towels sets and placing them on the beds, to reduce touch points during the cleaning process.
Ethan Braisted, Head of Linen Operations, oversees the facilities daily operations. Ethan’s imperative role ensures that our cleaning standards and practices remain in place. Ethan’s dedication to logistics and timing continue to create as seamless an operation as one can.
