covid-19 cleaning services

We're here to help with Coronavirus cleaning! We're following the CDC's recommendations & guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting community facilities amid this outbreak. Limiting the exposure of community spread is our goal and the first step is cleaning and disinfecting areas that have a high volume of traffic. 

our procedures

Our procedures for this type of cleaning are different from our normal cleanings. Our staff will have the correct PPE, such as gloves, gowns, masks, etc. We encourage our staff to continually sanitize and wash their hands during the cleaning disinfecting process. Specific CDC guidelines are followed for cleaning surfaces, linens, and other laundry items.
