*Showers in Residence are checked daily and cleaned thoroughly twice per week.  A daily, thorough clean is for Dalplex only.

**Disinfecting Touch Points focuses on those areas or items that are touched frequently by multiple people such as light switches, door knobs, push plates, hand rails, elevator buttons and drawer handles. Our service disinfects these areas, breaking the chain of transmission and helping to reduce the spread of infection in some of the most likely places to pick up viruses and bacteria.
