Nakheel begins disinfection across 647 residential buildings

Master developer Nakheel has rolled out a two-week disinfection programme across 647 of its residential buildings in Dubai.

The move is part of the developer’s commitment to safeguard the public health of its tenants, which will run until the 12 April. The process covers all buildings managed by Nakheel Strata and all apartment blocks under Nakheel’s residential leasing division.

Buildings at Palm Jumeirah, Discovery Gardens, The Gardens, Jumeirah Heights, Masakin Al Furjan, Badrah and International City are undergoing the deep disinfection, which covers all common areas – lifts, lobbies and corridors – using Dubai Municipality-approved materials. The programme will take place from 8pm and 6am as part of the government’s current night time restrictions for residents to stay at home.

Nakheel also said it has deep cleaned all of its offices across Dubai, and continues to follow strict disinfection regimes at its offices, malls, buildings and communities.

Commenting on the disinfection programme, a Nakheel spokesperson said: “We are doing everything we can to protect people as much as possible.  We also call on residents and customers to help us help them stay safe by following official instructions, including staying at home, avoiding non-essential activities and regular handwashing with soap and water.”
