Helping people live better and more safely.
VHA’s unique Extreme Cleaning Program helps people regain control of their living space and their life by providing:
- Experienced, trained cleaners who work with clients and family members to meet public health standards so they can remain at home for as long as possible.
- Weekly follow-up cleaning support after the initial clean out to avoid relapse, based on staffing availability.
- Referrals and links to other local community resources for long-term needs.
- This service is available for individuals with multiple needs to be addressed
- This is not a pre and post preparation service for pest control treatment.
VHA’s Extreme Cleaning service involves the following steps:
- Clean out, de-clutter and discard items
- Thoroughly clean all living spaces in unit including: walls, floors and cupboards, appliances and laundry
- Prepare home for pest control (bedbug, roach) treatment if required.
- Help with weekly follow-up maintenance when appropriate.
