Post-summer, pre-holidays: Now is the time to deep-clean your home or office

Go beneath the surface to get spaces truly clean

Now that we’re back to work and back to school, this is the ideal time to give your home a deep clean – before the busyness of the holidays sets in!

Not only will you shed all the grime that summer’s outdoor pursuits have tracked in, you’ll also ensure your home is sparkling clean before the guests arrive.

And if “home” is also your “office,” you have even more reason for a fall refresh before hunkering down for winter, not to mention the arrival of flu season.

Fortunately, you don’t need to do it all yourself – because really, who has time?

“A clean home has always been important for people, but it’s become more important than ever over the last few years. Without using state-of-the-art equipment, people often don’t realize how much ‘dirt’ and soiling gets left behind,” notes Irene Barlas-Rimar, general manager of COIT Cleaning and Restoration Services here in Nanaimo. “We’ve been doing this for the last 70 years and we’re the experts at what we do. We have everything you need to ensure we clean, sanitize and disinfect your carpets, upholstery and tiles, whether in your home or business.”

A deep clean is as easy as 1, 2, 3

COIT’s IICRC-certified technicians make cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting your home and work spaces simple and effective, leaving them clean, fresh and looking like new!

Why is this three-pronged approach important? Cleaning alone may remove surface grime, but doesn’t kill germs. Sanitizers are used to kill 99.9 percent of surface bacteria and disinfectants will tackle a wider range of germs and bacteria.

For those trickier places, like those with tile and grout, COIT has developed an exclusive Clean and Colour Seal process. Designed for porous surfaces that can’t be cleaned using the three-step approach alone, COIT’s professionals clean your tiles and add your colour of choice to the grout by applying a new colour or one that restores your grout to its original state – followed by sealant.

A low-commitment, low-cost solution to a larger renovation, this process provides a barrier between grout and dirt, prolonging the life of the surface, and renewing your tile surfaces.

Why it’s important

Health authorities have recognized the importance of a clean environment in controlling the spread of germs and viruses. To schedule your fall deep-cleaning, call COIT Cleaning and Restoration Services in Nanaimo at 778-744-0348 or visit them online at coit.ca.
