Mississauga, ON – (May 11, 2020) – As much of North America continues to shelter in place, and many begin evaluating plans for establishing a new normal, first responders are facing elevated risk with many unique challenges. As a way of thanking those on the front lines for their dedication and service, PuroClean Canada, a restoration and remediation franchise location with 39 offices in seven provinces, today announced that all offices will provide free cleaning services to first responders. Complimentary services being offered will include the deep cleaning of breakrooms, bathrooms, vehicles, vending machines, doorknobs, and other frequent touchpoints at police or fire stations, hospitals, medical clinics and beyond.
“Service and leadership are pillars of PuroClean’s values, and those values are reflected in those working tirelessly to limit the survival of the virus,” said Gordon Gamble, chairman and CEO of PuroClean Canada. “We are humbled to be able to offer pro-bono service to our first responders and non-profit organizations within Canada during such challenging times.”
PuroClean’s biohazard cleanup services are aimed at limiting the survival of the virus in commercial and residential environments and helping prevent its spread. For the protection of both employees and customers, all trained technicians wear properly appointed personal protective equipment (PPE) and ensure those on-site are informed of safety procedures at all times. Using the two-tiered PuroClean RapidDefense™ system, cleaning services provide deep mitigation cleaning to reduce the further spread of pathogens. These cleaning services utilize Health Canada registered disinfectants approved by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to clean and eliminate germs from spots most likely to be contaminated by viruses, including shared electronics, vehicles, and common areas.
PuroClean is also proud to offer as a preferred vendor an added layer of protection – the AEGIS Microbial Shield. The Shield imparts durable, broad-spectrum, antimicrobial protection to existing non-food contact building surfaces to control and/or prevent microbial growth. Study after study has demonstrated that the application of the AEGIS Microbial Shield reduces the amount of microbial contamination by 99.9%. The Shield is not a disinfectant – it is an antimicrobial surface treatment which makes surfaces inhospitable for pathogens. Using nanotechnology, the Shield creates a bed of spikes that can puncture the cell wall of microbes that are deposited via air or touch. This added layer of protection ensures that you are doing all you can to protect your employees and customers.
