RESORT NEWS

This past winter, Spinnaker Resorts announced that it has begun working with a local company, Carolina Sanitizing, to apply antimicrobial coating technology to the check-in areas and Sales Centers at Bluewater Resort, Waterside Resort and SR Hotel on Hilton Head Island. This antimicrobial coating has been applied to all high-touch surfaces to stop the growth of disease-causing microorganisms and help protect these surfaces from cross contamination.

Carolina Sanitizing applied MicroShield 360, a two-step antimicrobial coating system that kills a broad spectrum of pathogens and viruses, including SARS CoV-2 (the specific coronavirus that causes COVID-19), and continues to protect against cross contamination along with preventing the growth of bacteria, mold, and odors on surfaces.

MicroShield 360 is EPA Approved on thousands of surfaces and FDA Approved safe for food surfaces. The coating is odorless, colorless, and hypo allergenic as it works every second of every day as an extra layer of protection between standard cleanings. This coating protects surfaces from harmful disease-causing microbes, but also increase the surface’s durability, appearance, and corrosion resistance for a cleaner and safer environment.

RESORT IMPROVEMENTS

The teams have been busy this winter working on projects that require significant time and focus. This winter all Hilton Head Island properties underwent checks on all fire safety systems and moved forward with important upgrades to the Bluewater, Egret Point, Southwind, and Waterside resort systems. This time of year, much work and detail are applied to the villa maintenance and housekeeping areas ensuring all villas are in good condition for your next arrival.
