It’s that time of year again… Spring cleaning is here and more important than ever!

Stay ahead of lingering germs at home and in your workplace

With the pandemic still upon us and remote working and learning keeping us and our day-to-day lives at home – cleaning is always top of mind and can’t wait! COIT has a wide range of Cleaning and Restoration Services that can help take care of your Spring cleaning needs, with services to combat excess soiling, lingering germs and bacteria that may not be visible in areas of your home or business.

“Having a clean home has always been important for people, but right now it’s more important than ever to help control the spread of COVID 19. Without using state-of-the-art equipment, a lot of people don’t realize how much ‘dirt’ and soiling gets left behind through traditional cleaning practices or home-based cleaning equipment. It is best practice to perform your annual cleaning of all areas throughout your home or business by a professional company that will focus on being thorough and effective with all your cleaning needs,” notes COIT General manager Irene Barlas-Rimar. “We’ve been doing this for the last 70 years and feel that we ARE the experts at what we do. We have everything you need to ensure we clean, sanitize and disinfect your carpets, upholstery and tiles, and much more whether in your home or business.”

The longtime family business offers a range of services that provide peace of mind during the pandemic. Help protect your home this Spring and freshen it up just in time for Summer too!

How does it work?

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 – COIT’s Sales Consultants will provide you with a free, no obligation estimate, good for 30 days. Their IICRC-certified technicians perform industry-standard cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting in all home and work environments leaving them looking clean, fresh and even looking like new! Why combine all three applications? Cleaning alone doesn’t kill germs but removes surface dirt and embedded debris. Sanitizers are used to kill 99.9 percent of surface bacteria and disinfectants will tackle a wider range of germs and bacteria.

Tile and Grout Clean and Colour Seal before and after picture. They can make your tiles look like new again!

But wait, there’s more!

If you’re looking to clean up your tile and grout or change up the colour of your grout, or even both, COIT has developed an exclusive COIT Clean and Colour Seal process for porous surfaces that can’t be cleaned using the three-step approach alone. At COIT, their professionals clean your tiles and add your colour of choice to the grout by applying a new color or one that restores your grout to its original state – followed by sealing it. Now why would you not want that done?!

Finally… Why is it more important than ever to clean now?

Apart from having a fresh, clean, aesthetically pleasing, and safe home and business, the WHO and the CDC have recognized the importance of a clean environment in controlling the spread of COVID. The pandemic has taken away so much from all of us, let’s do all we can to keep it under control. The health and safety of COIT’s customers and staff is a top priority for them, and therefore, they continue to follow all recommended protocols provided by these health organizations while performing the most required and requested cleaning services to keep you safe and clean.

Pick up the phone and call COIT at 1-877-584-2648 to schedule your zero-contact, memorable service appointment today! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!
