Frequently Asked Questions
HOW ARE THE PODS CLEANED?
The pods are disinfected after every.single.use. This isn’t public transit, an Uber, or an airline seat. Since the whole idea is to provide a clean, quiet, and comfortable space, there’s a reason that clean comes first. There are a lot of dirty things that we touch over the course of a day but as long as I’m running Doze, your nap pods will never be one of them.
WHAT IF I SNORE?
Because the pods are positioned upright, snoring is dramatically reduced if not non-existent (even for those with lumber-yard replicating sleep apnea). However if you are still concerned about whether or not you are audible while resting, we have a white noise fan, privacy visor, and noise canceling headphones to help ease/mask those worries. The only way someone might hear you snoring is if they removed their headphones and very intently listened specifically for the snoring that you probably won’t be doing.
IT TAKES ME AWHILE TO FALL ASLEEP. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
You would have 2 options. If you're feeling oppressively tired but know that it takes you at least 10-15 minutes to fall asleep, you can book a 55 minute appointment to ensure that you have adequate time. If you only have 25 minutes, Doze is a great place to meditate, take a break, and reset. But we acknowledge that it's tough to do anything on-demand (especially when you're not ready to), so just like you wouldn't go to a restaurant when you can't eat, you wouldn't use Doze when you're not feeling tired.
Do I need an appointment, or can I just show up?
Doze accepts walk-ins and appointments. Sometimes we get hit with a wave of fatigue and need some rest right away. Just drop in. When you have that moment when you say to yourself, "I could really use a nap right now", we want the first thing that you think of to be Doze.
Although walk-ins run the risk of pods being full upon arrival, you can still reserve a pod to make sure it's available when you get here.
What if I want to Doze for more than 25 minutes?
Feel free to use Doze for 55 minutes as well. Just pay for what you intend to use on your way in.
Both scenarios subject to availability.
Where can I put my things?
The pods have two small cubbies on either side, while larger items can be placed below the pod or on the window sill without worry.
Can I take my shoes off?
What if I don't have a lot of time?
Feel free to use as little or as much time as you need. You'll only be charged for your 25 or 55 minute slot so if you only have 15 minutes to spare, simply cut out early.
