New Master Care Boss -Terry Laferte

  Introducing Terry Laferte, CEO Master Care has a new man in charge.  With the retirement of our long-time president comes the installation of a new leader.  Welcome Terry Laferte, Chairman and CEO of Master Care Janitorial!       Effective July 1, 2017 along with purchase of a major portion of Master Care, Terry Laferte became Chairman and CEO of Master Care Janitorial and Facility Services Inc.  Terry has been a successful part of Master Care since May 1, 2008 when he and his wife, Laura, purchased an associate franchise from an associate looking to retire. Terry saw the Master Care business model, and the people within it, as a company that he could work with and grow.   And that is exactly what they did.  They grew the business so much in 4 years, that they brought on their son in law Scott to help manage the growth. Terry has been an integral part of the successes within Master Care over the last 9 years.  With Scott and Laura’s help, their team won the franchisee of the year award within Master Care 4 times in the last 8 years. This is something to be proud of.  He played a big part of landing some large multi-facility contracts and was a part of the expansion of Master Care out to the Okanagan.  Coming from a 28-year I.T. background, Terry is resolved to improving the systems within Master Care, making them  ready for a desired expansion of Master Care boundaries and services.  His ideas, projections and confidence in what Master Care can do brings a new excitement to all...

Happy Retirement Chris!

Master Care has gone through many changes in 2017 – starting with the retirement of Chris Stone, President and Owner. He will be missed, but never forgotten. There would be no Master Care if it wasn’t for Chris Stone.

Hand Hygiene Day May 5, 2017

Hand hygiene plays an important roll in the protection against infection. On May 5th, 2017, the World Health Organization has created a day that focuses on the importance of hand washing in health care facilities. Let us all do our part and Clean Your Hands on May 5th.       SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands 5 May 2017 ‘Fight antibiotic resistance – it’s in your hands’ The World Health Organization urges you to focus on the fight against antibiotic resistance in the context of hand hygiene and infection prevention and control (IPC) programs. You can do this by supporting the 5 May 2017 calls to action. Hand hygiene is at the core of effective IPC to combat antibiotic resistance, and campaigning each year on or around 5 May is one important part of improving behaviour towards IPC best practices. This year the campaign materials are all co-branded with ‘Antibiotics, handle with care’ to demonstrate unity between antimicrobial resistance and IPC efforts. Who we want action to be taken by: we want health workers to clean their hands at the right times, building on hand hygiene improvement efforts made up to now; we want chief executive officers and managers to support hand hygiene campaigning and infection prevention and control programmes, to protect patients from antibiotic-resistant infections; we want IPC leaders to lead hand hygiene campaigning and start their journey of meeting the core components for infection prevention and control; we want policy makers to stop antibiotic resistance spread by demonstrating national support and commitment to infection prevention.

Happy 35th Anniversary

35 Years and Counting 2016 was an anniversary year for Master Care Janitorial.  What started in 1981 as a small office cleaning business has turned into a successful comprehensive commercial cleaning company.  Services now include office cleaning, post-construction cleaning, school cleaning, strata building cleaning and warehouse cleaning. Our specialty services such as carpet and floor care and steam cleaning are also highly sought after.  This once small business now has almost 700 customers we clean on a nightly or weekly basis!
