When there is a pandemic caused by a virus with no vaccine and no cure, the old cliche that prevention is better than cure proves true. One of the best ways companies can ensure they play their roles in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases is to use disinfecting services.
At Picture Perfect Cleaning, we remain committed to helping our clients take a proactive approach. We work with you to determine how often you should consider scheduling school or daycare cleaning services and then meet those demands. If there are instances of workers or customers testing positive for the virus, we also have the biohazard skills and gear at the ready for cleanup duty. Watch our video here for more information on this:
As provinces continue to reopen, we want to help quiet the fear and panic many people feel about moving into “a new normal.” Here’s how.
The CDC has warned that even at home, people should thoroughly clean all high-touch surfaces. Commercial disinfecting services that tackle every inch of the office is important, but none more so than cleaning those high-touch surfaces. Our workers know exactly what to look for and what to clean in office and other workspaces. Here are some of the many high-touch areas they look out for:
WHO and the CDC issued several advisories regarding the approved chemicals that kill or clean the novel coronavirus. Unfortunately, some of the best chemicals against COVID-19 are the worst for your upholstery and furniture. For instance, hydrogen peroxide can ruin the upholstery and carpeting by bleaching the colors. Similarly, alcohol-based products can quickly penetrate and begin to strip the protective coatings on furniture.
The custodians that carry out our commercial disinfecting services know exactly what chemicals to use on the many different surfaces they come across in your workspace. This protects the investments you have made in your business.
The more COVID-19 progresses, the more difficult it becomes for people to gain access to common cleaning items. Amazon, for instance, has famously withheld specific items for frontline workers. The same is true of many of the more traditional suppliers of all the products you need to maintain a healthy and clean environment, even without a public health crisis. Because Picture Perfect Cleaning is a frontline business that serves many other frontline companies, such as health care facilities, we have access to these supplies.
As trained professionals, we also gain access to chemicals and other products that might otherwise prove dangerous to most untrained civilians. Use of these products ensures that when you hire us for commercial disinfecting services, you get a thorough deep-clean of your business.

Some companies focus on greener initiatives than others. For these corporations, sustainability and protecting the environment always ranks at the top of the list. Many of the clients who fit into this group also expressed concerns about how chemicals used for cleaning may or may not affect employees and customers.
We use safe chemicals that do not cause harm to people or the environment when used correctly. Still, some chemicals are safer for the environment than others. With this in mind, we work with environment-first companies to ensure our cleaning practices complement their green initiatives without compromising the effectiveness of that deep clean.
Most people believe they practice good hygiene. However, one Forbes article shows that up to 97% of people do not wash their hands properly. Some people also do not bother to wash their hands at all. The CDC reports that even after using a public restroom, only 31% of men and 65% of women wash their hands. Encourage workers to take hand-washing more seriously and to use approved alcohol-based sanitizers throughout the day.
Many businesses that have reopened now practice social distancing indoors. For instance, some stores limit how many customers can shop inside at a time. Companies with office spaces might limit how many people can work in the office each day. Some go to extreme lengths, allowing only one person in the office per day while others rely on the six-feet rule for keeping desks apart.
Not all businesses can allow face coverings, but when possible, it helps a great deal. If someone becomes infected, the mask helps to reduce the risk they expose other people to when they breathe, sneeze, or cough. This is because viruses can hang around in droplets in the air. When healthy people wear masks, they further limit potential exposure.

Picture Perfect Cleaning is incredibly proud of the culture we have built within our company. We prioritize communication and teamwork, and it shows: you’ll never be left wondering about the work we do, or how we do it.
By encouraging and listening to client feedback, we ensure that we meet your business’ needs with the same quality and reliability that we offer all of our clients. We set standards that we are accountable to, and then add the extra mile for good measure.
Different establishments have different needs, but that shouldn’t compromise the service they receive. We work hard to understand your needs and expectations before we even deliver a quote.

All of our staff are well taken care of, and that includes legally. Picture Perfect Cleaning is fully bonded, licensed, and insured, so that you can enjoy your sparkling establishment with a peaceful mind. It’s not our habit to sweep things under the rug.

We think Picture Perfect Cleaning’s performance has been outstanding!
I never rate anything perfect, I always believe there is room for improvement but we truly love this team.
We are a complicated company to clean, as we are open 6am-8pm and client facing, Monday to Friday and half days on Saturdays. We only have it in our budget for one person to clean. They have to clean around client schedules, team schedules and look after 21,000 sq.ft. This is not an easy task. It requires thinking, planning, organization, thinking above and beyond, being super detailed oriented, being proactive and sometimes reactive (things spill, break, weather is bad, causing the floors to be in a constant state of dirt and wetness) versus an office that would be cleaned with no people around. Often the cleaner has to change directions a few times over the course of the day.
Jared and Aaron have been great to work with from a financial point of view (trying to come to a win win situation), being very responsive to changes and needs, resolving any issues, and being very service oriented. They hired great individuals and take care of their team (they call them family), we call them FAMILY!
Ask them to share their story with you, of how they came to be! If not, ask them, as it’s a great story! I promise, it’s worth your time.
Jared, Aaron, Roxanne and team are completely amazing. I highly recommend them.
