Smith Cleaning Service owners say COVID changed everything

Little did Carlette Smith know that her cleaning service employees would end up looking like astronauts. But COVID truly did change everything.

When the pandemic hit Leon County last March, Smith saw a way her business could help eliminate the virus and thrive during the pandemic. Like so many other businesses, Brian D. Smith Cleaning Service had to restructure to meet the challenges that COVID-19 posed as the outbreak spread.

Smith said they had to find the right equipment, cleaning supplies and personal protection gear to kill the virus in commercial and residential buildings. She and her husband started their minority-owned cleaning company in 2003 after she came back from a tour as a military police officer in Iraq.
