Marriott International plans to introduce cleaning technologies to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Chief among these are electrostatic sprayers, which use hospital-grade disinfectant to rapidly sanitize guestrooms, lobbies, gyms and other public areas. According to Marriott, electrostatic spraying technology uses the “highest classification of disinfectants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization.”

Additionally, the company said it will experiment with ultraviolet-light technology for sanitizing room key cards and devices shared by associates.

Marriott has assembled a team of hospitality, health and safety experts under a new Marriott Global Cleanliness Council, which will focus on “developing the next level of global hospitality cleanliness standards, norms and behaviors.” 

The council is chaired by Ray Bennett, who oversees Marriott’s global operations. The team includes advisory members Dr. Ruth L. Petran, senior corporate scientist for food safety and public health for Ecolab; infectious disease specialist Dr. Michael A. Sauri; Dr. Richard Ghiselli, head of the school of hospitality and tourism management at Purdue University; and Dr. Randy Worobo, professor of food microbiology at Cornell University’s department of food science.
