Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, Toronto’s Leading Construction Site Cleaner, Announces Importance of Construction Site Cleanup in Construction Season

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), April 29, 2015 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.Clean-Slate.ca), a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, is announcing that, with the recent beginning of the spring and summer construction season, now is the time to perform construction site cleanups.

Year after year, the GTA has become one of the leading cities in the world when it comes to construction projects. This year is no different. With the Pan Am Games just around the corner, the construction has been even more prevalent over the past couple years.

“This is a city that’s been in constant growth for the last decade or so, and probably longer than that, says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. It’s great for our city, but we also have to ensure we’re being responsible with cleaning those areas once they’re done construction on the site.”

Panousis explains that residents are often put off by the garbage and mess left on construction sites. With the increase of construction during the spring and summer seasons, it’s important to pay special attention to keeping these sites clean.

“It’s an issue,” he adds. “The noise is already something residents have to deal with when it comes to construction sites, and that really can’t be prevented. But what can be helped is the cleanliness of the area once a construction project is completed.”

“Special equipment is required to clean construction sites, as well as a specific set of skills,” Panousis concludes. “Workers at Clean-Slate Janitorial Services have these tools and understand the urgency of efficiency in order to effectively clean the site.”

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, Toronto’s Leading Commercial and Retail Cleaner, Issues Expert Advice on Why Carpet’s Better for Care Facilities in Spring

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), April 10, 2015 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.Clean-Slate.ca) a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, is issuing its expert advice on why carpet is the preferred flooring solution in long-term care facilities, especially during the more active spring season.

“Carpets are one of those things people either love or hate,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “It’s safe to assume that many people who don’t like carpets don’t have all the information on how they can be beneficial.”

According to Panousis, one place that would greatly benefit from carpets is a long-term care facility, especially during the spring, when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold for seniors and they are subsequently more active. Installing carpets throughout the majority of the facility can have some major benefits, the primary one being that they provide additional safety.

“Carpets have softer surfaces, which can play a role in accident prevention,” he adds. “Slips and falls are a major issue with people who stay in these facilities and not only can a carpet soften the blow, but it also provides better traction than tiles, preventing slip and falls from occurring.”

Panousis explains that the quiet factor is another reason long-term care facilities should consider installing carpet. This matters because loved ones invest a lot of money for their parents or grandparents to live comfortably, and part of that comfort is quiet. With the amount of people walking back and forth throughout the day, it can be a bit disturbing if they are walking on a hard surface, but carpet eliminates that noise and adds to the peacefulness of the living experience.

“Lastly, another benefit of carpet is the improvement it brings to indoor air quality,” Panousis concludes. “Many people believe carpet adds dust, but it actually absorbs dust and particles that are airborne.”

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services understands the benefits of carpet and how to properly clean it to maintain all of the mentioned benefits. Visit the Clean-Slate web site at www.Clean-Slate.ca for more information.

Clean for the Holidays

It seems as though businesses are preparing for the holidays earlier and earlier each year. October is a busy time for retailers, with Thanksgiving and Halloween falling within weeks of each other. More and more Canadian retailers are also having “Black Friday” sales as well. And, after Halloween, the holiday retail season will kick into high gear.

As the leading provider of commercial cleaning services in Toronto, Clean-Slate Janitorial Services recommends that retail business owners have their location professionally cleaned once before the holiday shopping season starts and once more before it ends. You’re going to be extra busy over the next couple of months, so why not get your store cleaned to ensure it looks great for your customers?

Having a clean store is especially important during the holiday season. You can have the best prices and the hot items that everyone is looking for, but if your retail space isn’t clean, chances are customers are going to stay away, no matter how fantastic the deals are. As the top provider of janitorial services in Toronto, we will visit your location after it closes and have it looking sparkling clean before your customers arrive the next morning.

But it isn’t just retailers who need to start looking at cleaning services. If you’re a business owner, you’re doubtlessly gearing up for year-end meetings. You want your office to look its best for meetings with your clients as well as any parties you may have planned. As one of the top office cleaning companies in the Greater Toronto Area, we will clean your office from top to bottom so it will be in top form for all those important meetings. Additionally, your office is going to turn into a sealed environment over the next few cold weather months; you want to be sure it is clean and the air is breathable.

With cold and flu season coming up, you need your retail space to be as clean as possible. Carpets can be a breeding ground for germs and you don’t want your customers or employees to get sick. Our commercial cleaning services in Toronto will leave your store germ-free in addition to being sparkling clean. Your employees must also take precautions, such as washing their hands frequently, using hand sanitizer, and staying home if they are sick. We also recommend leaving a bottle of hand sanitizer near the cash register or at the reception desk.

Our retail janitorial services in Toronto are literally top to bottom. We will vacuum your floors, clean your windows, and so much more using only the best equipment and safest, eco-friendly cleaning materials. Whether it’s a small shop or a full-sized retail environment, we will complete the cleaning job in a thorough and efficient manner.

Since your retail space and office are going to see increased traffic over the next three months, we recommend having your business cleaned at least twice. We provide janitorial services in Toronto at an affordable rate so you can focus your resources on providing your customers with the best deals.

The next few months are going to be busy for all of us, so don’t hesitate; call Clean-Slate, one of the top retail and office cleaning companies in the GTA, for the best professional cleaning in the business!

Tips for Removing Coffee & Tea Stains

Ask any business owner and they will tell you that their carpet is a virtual magnet for stains. And with most offices running on coffee and tea, your carpet doubtlessly has more than a few coffee and tea stains. Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, the best carpet cleaner in the Greater Toronto Area, tells its clients that there are ways they can reduce the appearance of coffee and stains until our next visit.

When someone spills a cup of coffee or tea, the most important thing is to remove the stain before it has a chance to set in. The first step is to blot as much as you can with a clean cloth. The best carpet cleaner to use next is, believe it or not, water! However, we recommend just adding a little water; too much will make the stain worse since it won’t get a chance to dry properly.

Continue to blot the stain and introduce a stain remover. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label since, again, failing to do so may end up making the stain worse. This should help to reduce the appearance of the stain, if not remove it completely; however, as the top carpet cleaner in the GTA, we still recommend giving your carpets a professional cleaning regularly.

We do recognize that regular cleanings may not be feasible, but there are other tips we can give to maintain your carpet’s appearance between cleanings and stop coffee and tea stains before they have a chance to set in. For one, the best carpet cleaner is right in your own kitchen; use white vinegar diluted 1:1 with water on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes, then sponge up the water and gently blot the stain.

Another option is to try mixing one tablespoon of liquid hand-washing detergent with the vinegar and warm water and apply it with a cloth. You should know that even if you use the best carpet cleaner, the appearance of your carpet will still effect how easily you can remove the stain.

With white carpets, we recommend using vinegar and detergent, while for beige carpets, the best cleaner should be a mild one to avoid causing damage to your carpet. It should also be noted that these solutions only reduce the look of stains. If you want the best results, we recommend regular professional cleaning of your carpet.

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services is the best carpet cleaner in the GTA, providing thorough carpet cleaning that removes all stains, be they from coffee or tea, from your office’s carpets, leaving them looking as good as new.

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, Toronto’s Leading Commercial and Retail Cleaner, Examines the Benefits on Offices Going Digital

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), April 30, 2014 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.Clean-Slate.ca), a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, retail maintenance, floor restoration, carpet cleaning, and construction site cleanup, is weighing in on the efforts of the business world going digital to cut back on paper waste.

“The adoption of digital software not only helps the environment, but increases workplace efficiencies. It’s actually a great thing to see so many offices focused on going digital and cutting out the need for paper,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “Any steps that can collectively be taken to help the environment are certainly positive.”

But going digital does more than just help the environment. Toronto is building the first completely digital hospital in all of North America and they acknowledge that fewer errors will be made on the floor, patient charts will automatically be updated, and check-ins for surgery will all be done via a kiosk. Panousis adds that creating a more efficient and effective system is a benefit of going digital that will directly impact the productivity of businesses, making it an all-around positive move.

Some companies are taking it one step further and encouraging mobile workspaces. Panousis explains that a system is set up in which all the necessary data is remotely accessible by the employee on whichever device they choose. This gives workers more flexibility when possible, and as long as assignments are completed, they can theoretically operate from anywhere. (Source: Lambert, N., “Can a Mobile Workspace Help Deliver the Paperless Office?” Wired web site, April 22, 2014; http://innovationinsights.wired.com/insights/2014/04/can-mobile-workspace-help-deliver-paperless-office/.)

“As far as inside of the office, adopting digital technology makes it easier to keep workstations clean,” Panousis concludes. “And when office cleaning services are required, their focus can be on more significant issues, such as floor cleaning and buffing, or deep carpet cleaning for coffee or other hard-to-remove stains.”
