The SynergyCares Pledge
– It’s thoroughly thought through and carefully considered for efficiencies and safety
– It’s in the training—from our housekeepers to the counselors who schedule reservations
– It’s in how we welcome guests, the nuances of our communications, and pre-arrival touchpoints
– It’s in our understanding of the need to do it right, sanitizing keys, surfaces, and every aspect of customer care
...it's in the details
From the products in use to the apartment cleaning methods, to staff training to honest and open communication, the SynergyCares initiative embodies more than just clean, sanitized units.

WHAT DOES AN ELECTROSTATIC DISINFECTING TOOL DO?
Electrostatic sprayers use positive and negative charges to make disinfecting solutions electromagnetically stick to targeted surfaces. For example, no matter which angle you disinfect a surface from, the charge created by the electrostatic sprayer makes the disinfectant wrap around and cling to the entire surface.
HOW DOES SYNERGY SANITIZE KEYS?
All keys and access instruments will be cleaned with an alcohol-based product and secured in the method of delivery as explained in the arrival instructions.
WHAT CLEANING SUPPLIES ARE PROVIDED AS STANDARD IN THE APARTMENT THAT GUESTS CAN USE?
Broom, mop & bucket, dish soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, bar soap, shampoo and conditioner.
WHAT IF A GUEST DOES NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE TO HAVE HOUSEKEEPING SERVICES?
