Latest member of the Taylor Made Franchising group introduces new COVID-19 cleaning service
PVC Vendo, the latest franchise to join the Taylor Made Franchising group – which owns brands such as Stumpbusters, Wilkins Chimney Sweep and Traas Pest Control – has introduced a new ‘Sani Clean’ service in a bid to combat the COVID-19 virus for its clients.
The brand states that the new ‘Sani Clean’ service being offered to new and existing clients uses a trade-only professional cleaning product, which, when applied to the inside of the vehicle, kills the COVID-19 virus immediately.
Darren Taylor, managing director, said: “When a company has a confirmed case of the virus amongst staff, they naturally want to get that vehicle sanitized as soon as possible, for staff safety and so they can get it back out on the road, with as little down-time as possible.
“We are delighted that companies are turning to trusted professionals like PVC Vendo, to help them protect their staff from the COVID-19 virus and to keep their vehicles on the road during these difficult times.’
