Rent Ready shares in your commitment to health and safety. We offer a Virus Safeguard service to help protect your residents and staff against the spread of Covid-19 via shared surfaces in common areas and as the final step in a turn process.


How does Virus safeguarding make communities safe?

The virus can be spread by one resident touching a surface where another infected resident or staff member may have coughed or sneezed and deposited the virus. So, to keep everyone in your community safe, it is important to regularly disinfect – not just clean.

Copy of “360° Surface Spraying is a very powerful way that apartment communities can reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, especially in common areas and especially in final turns.” (1)

With 360° Surface-Spraying technology, trained professionals spray EPA-certified disinfectant that kills 99.99% of germs and bacteria, including coronavirus. It reaches all surfaces and cracks, adheres more effectively to surfaces and stays there longer than spray-and-wipe disinfection methods.

Learn more about how this technology helps prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our Q&A with an infectious disease epidemiologist.


Why 360° Surface spraying is Needed

360° Surface-Spraying technology (technical term: electrostatic spraying) uses a professional device that allows the disinfectant to reach every side of every touchable service. By covering objects in a 360-degree approach, this technology eliminates the spot-miss potential of a spray-and-wipe approach.

“360° Surface-Spraying technology is the gold standard for disinfection. When you come in and wipe things down (which everyone should still be doing), you are not necessarily going to be able to get to every surface. Then if someone touches a surface that was not disinfected, there is now a risk of transmission of the virus.”

– Dr. Shira Shafir, Infectious Disease Epidemiologist, UCLA

Can my onsite staff perform this service?

“360° Surface Spraying is a very powerful way that apartment communities can reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, especially in common areas and especially in final turns.” (3)Rent Ready deploys only vetted, experienced, trained professionals to conduct the 360° Surface Spraying. In addition to apartment communities, they spray in hospitals, schools and restaurants – industries that absolutely count on them for a 100-percent correct application. When you advise your residents that you are doing everything you can to protect them, you want to be sure that there is no room for error.


Benefits of Using Sanitization Services

  • Keeps residents safe from communal diseases that are easily transferable and keeps them satisfied with their living conditions to drive retention
  • Keeps onsite safe from communal diseases to ensure onsite staff are able to continue to assist residents
  • Reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces compared to conventional methods
  • Improves infection control and the spread of viruses such as COVID-19, influenza, MRSA, HIV and many others by neutralizing 99.99% of germs and bacteria
  • Applies chemicals in a more efficient, controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of overuse
  • Prevents costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections

    “I would definitely be concerned if an apartment community was not using 360° Surface-Spraying technology either for turns or common areas because the level of manual disinfection that would be required in order for people to feel confident that these spaces are safe, is really very, very high.”

    – Dr. Shira Shafir, Infectious Disease Epidemiologist, UCLA

What is 360° Surface-Spraying technology?

In technical terms, it is “electrostatic spraying,” which is a technology that employs charged particles to more efficiently cover a space. In layman’s terms, a professional spraying device covers objects in a 360-degree approach with EPA-certified disinfectant, reaching every side of every touchable service. The technology eliminates the spot-miss potential of a spray-and-wipe approach.
