We set the standard in safety every day, but extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures to ensure your safety and confidence when using Valet Living’s amenity services in your communities. As a result, we have enhanced the robust health and safety procedures we already have in place to ensure that we can continue to provide you with our standard-setting amenity services during this pandemic. We are performing this higher level of service at no cost to you or your residents to keep communities happy and healthy during this challenging time.
Health and Safety are Priorities
The health and safety of our clients, your residents and our associates is our number one priority.
Led by our Senior Director, Environmental, Health and Safety, with over 40 years of experience in Occupational Health & Safety, Valet Living’s dedicated safety team works hand-in-hand with cross-functional leaders to make swift decisions that put the care of our associates and clients first. Our team is monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak daily through contacts at the national, state and local health departments. You can stay up to date here.
Valet Living has also activated its business continuity team to mitigate impact to your communities. In the past, we have enabled this team to effectively manage through California wildfires, snowstorms, hurricanes and more.

“During this time of uncertainty, especially in the multifamily industry, where we’ve been seeing a majority of our residents staying at home, public amenities shutting down, and balancing the safety needs of our residents and staff, we have seen a vast increase in the amount of trash from our residents. Valet Living has been an exceptional partner and remained constant for our residents and our staff. The doorstep trash and recycling collection has not missed a beat, and we believe that this is an amenity service that helps them feel safer not having to leave their homes, reducing the spread of cross-contamination, all while helping to flatten the curve and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.”Joanna Z.President & CEO of BH Management Services
