No Touch Sanitization

As per our latest blog post, Goodbye Graffiti™ is proud to offer our new No Touch Sanitization service.  In an effort to adapt to our “new normal”,  keep our employees working, and help our communities we have developed our No Touch Sanitization program.

Our technicians now have the capability to sanitize any hard surface inside or out.  Our product is certified by the Government of Canada as effective in destroying the COVID-19 virus in addition to many other bacteria and viruses.

In a few short weeks, we have had great success with this product.  In the midst of the current pandemic, the service is safeguarding residential buildings and essential businesses including banks, gas stations, grocery stores, pharmacies, and delivery fleets. We are also sanitizing transit shelters and municipal street equipment among other assets, keeping our communities safe.

As we think about what the future might look like, it is never too early to plan for the reopening of our communities.  We can plan ahead to sanitize playgrounds, stadiums, retail shops, theatres, malls, casinos, etc.  Our experiences today will change the way we interact in the world and the importance of cleanliness and sanitization will be at the forefront for consumers and citizens.

Role with Goodbye Graffiti™: General Manager Vancouver & Sea to Sky

What did you do before Goodbye Graffiti™: Prior to coming on board with Goodbye Graffiti I was a Human Resources Manager for one of the largest General Motors Dealerships in Ontario.

What are your strengths as a Goodbye Graffiti™ team member: I try and create a framework for people in different functional disciplines to work together effectively towards a common goal. My unwavering commitment to Customer Service and realistically high standards are what makes me a strong leader at Goodbye Graffiti. `

The best part of your role with Goodbye Graffiti™:  I love working as part of a team with many moving parts that must flow together seamlessly in order to be successful. Motivating people to reach a common goal is exhilarating for me and something I take a lot of pride in. Our team at the Vancouver office is super tight-knit and it is a pleasure working with each and everyone in such a vibrant community.  As a fully trained and certified lift vehicle operator, I also love driving some of the big articulating boom lifts we utilize to safely remove large pieces of graffiti from precarious places.

The Most challenging part of your role with Goodbye Graffiti™: Scheduling around the weather!

What is the most interesting piece of graffiti you have ever seen:  Muralists are incredibly inspiring with their larger than life creations. I am particularly fond of cultural or political pieces that make you stop and think about an idea, perhaps step outside of your world view and see a new perspective. Richard Tetrault is an amazing Visual Artist, Muralist here in Vancouver and his amazing cultural work can be seen all over the city.  iHeart and Banksy also come to mind.
