Cleaning standards

The cleaning standards within Plum homes have always been high, but to ensure all our homes are COVID-19 safe, we have developed a new series of cleaning guidelines which every host is committed to following.

When booking a stay, you can rest assured our hosts have cleaned all hard surfaces with soap, warm water and used disinfectant products throughout, all whilst wearing a protective mask, gloves and shoe covers.
