Our housekeeping team leaves the room and the unit automatically begins sterilising all visible surfaces two minutes later. This unit was inspired by a call for help from the medical community to improve cleaning standards during the Covid-19 crisis, the Muv-X Room Steriliser is now being used in many hospitality sectors such as hotels. Our housekeeping standards is of the highest but this unit ensures that extra peace of mind for our guests. We wanted to go above and beyond to make sure everyone feels safe.
