13INside sees how American Senior Communities is keeping their properties clean, sanitized

Fighting the COVID-19 pandemic is one of the biggest tasks for American Senior Communities.


During these uncertain times, American Senior Communities has implemented more enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols.

Leslie Anderson, Executive Director at American Senior Communities' Danville Regional Rehabilitation, says these measures have been put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. 

"The health and wellness of our residents and employees remain our highest priorities," Anderson said. "We have implemented enhancements in many areas of operation to help ensure we provide the safest environment possible while maintaining our residents' quality of life."

Changes in housekeeping look different now at American Senior Communities says Anderson. 

"One of the most important ways to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus is thorough and frequent cleaning of surfaces," Anderson told 13INside Track. "All housekeeping personnel are educated on infection control practices and cleaning strategies specific to COVID-19. Each housekeeper uses specialized, CDC approved disinfectant to kill the virus on surfaces. High touch areas such as light switches, doorknobs and call lights are sanitized multiple times per day by several team members."

American Senior Communities now uses a special fine mist sprayer says Anderson. 

"We are currently using a high-tech electrostatic spraying system in each community. These state-of-the-art tools, already in use in major hotels, will only enhance our already rigorous approach to sanitization," Anderson said. "Our fine mist sprayers aid in the disinfection of high touch areas, including fabrics such as couches and chairs in our common areas as well as all the equipment in our therapy gyms."
