Housekeeping Services

Providing Consistent Quality

Our housekeeping services provide, maintain and manage a clean, safe and hygienic environment in all businesses that we service. Due to our large presence in Retirement Homes, our housekeeping program is designed to ensure that we meet standards and best practices in the health care industry and of various health authorities. This ensures that we provide consistent quality housekeeping services, are responsive to client needs and issues at the site level, and ensure we provide the policies, procedures, resources, and people to operate a quality program.
