The coronavirus disease (Covid-19) seems to be on everyone’s minds these days. It’s good that people are taking it seriously, early. While there have been some analyses that contend the disease isn’t as bad as some make it out to be, it’s better to prepare for the worst and hope for the best (rather than the reverse!).

Here at Ideal Carpet Cleaning, we’re still working – the Ontario government has designated cleaners as essential services. We’re taking steps to reduce the risk to our employees and clients.

We’ve started using masks and rubber gloves but they slow us down a little so please bear with us if we’re running a little late.
