FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL COMPANY MAKING A DIFFERENCE DURING COVID-19
LaSalle, IL – October 3, 2020 – Illinois Valley Clean Team (IVCT), Inc. has been donating home cleaning services to local cancer patients for the past seven years through their partnership with nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason. IVCT owners Teresa and Casey Anderson, lifelong residents of the Illinois Valley, put a high priority on giving back to the community. They do this by making a difference for cancer patients and their families.
“Now more than ever during this COVID-19 crisis, IVCT has been working hard to create a healthier environment for our clients, and especially the cancer patients we serve,” said Teresa Anderson. IVCT changed their cleaning standards after completing the certification for GBAC’s (Global Biorisk Advisory Council) Cleaning & Disinfection Principles with emphasis on SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19.
“To slow the spread of infection, we are wearing masks and gloves, providing a 10-point disinfection to high touch areas, and practicing social distancing when cleaning in a home. For our cancer patients, we are also providing our PUREguard service, a touchless electrostatic disinfection at the end of each clean.”
Since 2013, IVCT has supported a total of 36 cancer patients with a donated value of $10,650 in cleanings.
Through partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, IVCT supports four homes per month for two consecutive months free of charge. This is an ongoing service to cancer patients residing in Ottawa, Marseilles, Streator, LaSalle, Peru, Oglesby, Utica, Tonica, Lostant, Mendota, Spring Valley, Ladd, LaMoille, Princeton, Granville, and Hennepin.
