LaSalle, Quebec, CANADA

LASALLE, Quebec, Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- While the COVID-19 pandemic has had such a negative impact on society, one positive takeaway is that it truly seemed to unify everyone around the importance of keeping our family, friends and colleagues safe and healthy.

At GDI Integrated Facility Services Inc.

GDI has been working with health and safety specialists throughout the pandemic to ensure that our services adhere to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and we have created an internal advisory council and panel of consultants to ensure we provide our clients with the best, most effective and consistent cleaning and sanitizing services.

We leveraged GDI’s deep knowledge base and cleaning and disinfecting expertise to create our Clean for Health services and informative resource initiative.
