The protection of our employees, clients, and community is our top priority. The Pink Wand Cleaning Services will continue to monitor and update our policies and procedures to address the uncertainty that Covid-19 presents. The following is an overview of or current practices and guidelines:
Physical distancing: We continue to encourage clients to vacate their premises when we are scheduled to clean. When this is not possible, our employees will exercise the current practice of distancing two (2) meters (six feet) from all individuals on the premises. Clients who are unable to vacate will need to distance as well in adjacent rooms to areas where cleaning activities are ongoing.
Cleaning Teams: Due to the challenges around physical distancing, we operate in teams of two. We continue to deliver consistent quality cleans.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Although masking is not required in most regions, we are committed to do the utmost to protect everyone. For this reason, our employees will wear masks and gloves while on the premises.
Disinfecting: The Pink Wand Cleaning Services use products effective in killing the COVID-19 virus on hard non-porous surfaces like countertops, light switches, and doorknobs. If you request a disinfectant to be used, we promise to only use disinfectants approved by Health Canada.
Daily Screening (Teams): We require all Pink Wand employees to complete a daily Covid-19 screening checklist. This is to identify symptomatic individuals prior to their scheduled shifts. All employees understand the risks involved with the possible spread of any virus and are to report any close contacts immediately to Pink Wand Operations. If any of our team members fail the daily screening checklist or are unwell, they will not be permitted to return to work until they have been cleared to do so.
Health Check (Customers): We want to partner with our clients and hope they understand we want to protect our employees as much as they want to be protected from us. For this reason we ask all clients to notify us immediately if there is a sick/confirmed Covid-19 case, symptomatic person, isolating person, or a close contact issue identified on their premises. We will evaluate the situation and rescheduling will always be an option.
These measures are implemented to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19. We want to ensure our teams, clients, and our community stays safe.

Residential Cleaning Services
We rely on our 100 plus point cleaning checklist to make sure every home is spotless. Most full cleans take around the 1 to 4 hour mark with a 2 person crew. Half cleans, 1 hour floors and bathrooms, are usually 1 hour cleans with a team of 2 team members.

For all our commercial cleans we provide an in office estimate via our commercial management team. Estimates are based upon the first two cleans and a regular rate is set after the third clean. We will then email you the contract and quotation and set up the regular service. We have a commercial check list that is left at every clean to ensure all needs are met.
