The health and safety of our employees, clients and community members are our highest priority, and we'd like to take the opportunity to address the ongoing concerns over the current flu season and the COVID-19 virus, and the preventative measures we have in place at Marianne’s Rentals.

We are taking the following steps to ensure the health and safety of the Marianne’s Rentals and our valued customers:

  • Our Leadership Team is continually monitoring the situation and has been providing our employees with updated guidelines and direction from the CDC and local health authorities on healthy workplace habits.
  • As always, we are asking that any employee who does not feel well stay home.
  • We have provided alcohol-based hand sanitizer throughout our workplace, warehouses and in common areas, including Marianne’s Rentals delivery trucks.
  • We are requiring all Delivery and Operational Teams to wear gloves and practice increased sanitation measures at every stop.

We have always and continue to have rigorous procedures in place to ensure the quality, sanitation, and cleanliness of our equipment. We have highlighted an overview of some of our Equipment Cleaning & Sanitation Procedures below:

Dishware: All of our dish and glass cleaning processes incorporate equipment that utilizes water temperatures in excess of 125 degrees Fahrenheit, which, when incorporated with our dish cleaning solution, exceeds the FDA Food Code requirements.

Linen: Similar to that of our Dish process, the combination of detergent, high water temperatures, and length of the wash cycle, meets the FDA Food Code and ensures sanitary linens.

General Equipment: We wipe down the surfaces of our general equipment items (which include tables, chairs, bars, shelving, and more) with an all-purpose cleaner. Equipment is then allowed to air dry, in accordance with the manufacturer recommendations, prior to making the equipment available to use.

Tents: Marianne’s uses cleaning equipment that utilizes the combination of detergent and water to ensure the cleanliness of our tenting equipment.

We are closely monitoring the CDC and World Health Organization for ongoing updates and will continue to adjust and advance our practices as recommended. We understand the impact this is having across the event industry and we are committed to working with you, our clients, during this difficult time.
