Post Ranch Signature Disinfection and Hygiene Solution

Rather than use bleach or other toxic chemicals to disinfect, Post Ranch set out to find a disinfection and cleaning solution that stayed true to our environmental ethos. After a comprehensive search, Post Ranch has implemented a two-step disinfection program that works to purify the air and renders surfaces self-disinfecting in a non-toxic, sustainable and healthful manner. The solution meets CDC and EPA guidelines, is Green Seal-certified and provides an odorless, non-toxic, hospital-grade disinfecting and cleaning system. 

  • The solution purifies the air and renders surfaces self-disinfecting in a non-toxic, sustainable and healthful manner.

  • The program utilizes the non-toxic, EPA-approved ECA Water* to disinfect and will be used in all guestrooms and public spaces frequently throughout the day. It will also be administered in our vehicles.

We strive to provide our guests with the highest level of personalized service and attention, while also respecting personal space and safety. To that end, we will be integrating some of the housekeeping services that are traditionally carried out during both daily service and evening turndown service into a Requested Service-Only model, eliminating many steps where staff would typically need to enter a guest’s room. Prior to arrival, we will stock each room for the entirety of the guest’s stay and be available on call for the delivery of additional linens, bathroom amenities, mini-bar items, and firewood deliveries as well as the removal of trash and room service items. Certain items, including the mini-bar and coffee makers, will be completely replaced prior to guests entering the room. We have also eliminated all magazines and collateral material, and have thoroughly disinfected all items in the room.
