Our technicians are friendly and caring – and your health is our primary concern.
We are asking our technicians to offer to apply our hospital-grade sanitizer as an optional service for every customer. This important service can provide a healthier environment than cleaning alone. Our hospital-grade sanitizers are also proven to kill viruses. We have been offering a sanitizer service in homes for over 20 years and are experts at improving your home’s cleanliness and health.
Our routine protocols include local operators completing a daily comprehensive cleaning of equipment. As an added precaution, we are also asking technicians to apply our hospital-grade sanitizer and wipe down equipment between each cleaning service to introduce clean equipment into the next home.
