Clean Source Steam Car Wash in Suva saw the onset of COVID-19 as an opportunity to diversify its services.

Car wash operations manager, Sekope Tukana said the company Clean Source provided three cleaning services; car wash, carpet, and homes.

“At the onset of the global pandemic, we saw a business opportunity,” he said.

“We had always been providing steam services to vehicles, homes, offices and furniture.

“However, when COVID-19 hit, we realised we could provide essential services such as deep cleansing, disinfecting and sanitising of vehicles.

He said this was done in a bid to help stop the spread of the virus while at the same time, keeping business afloat.

“Our sanitising and steaming services are certified by the Biosecurity Authority of Fiji and are in line with Ministry of Health guidelines.”

He added: “Business hasn’t been particularly great, but it hasn’t been too bad either.

“I think diversifying into this service has helped the business survive during these trying times.”

Mr Tukana said other businesses were slowly coming up to use Clean Source services to disinfect and sanitise their office spaces.

“When the pandemic first hit, we had businesses come up to us to deep cleanse their spaces, however it had slowed down until this second wave of the virus hit us.”

He has encouraged members of the public who use vehicles to disinfect and sanitise their vehicles to optimise health and safety of travellers.

The car wash is located in Laucala Bay Road, Suva and is open Mondays to Saturdays from 7 am to 5 pm.

Future Plans 

Mr Tukana said there were plans to expand once businesses returned to normalcy.

“We have plans to also have tyre repairing services.

“In future, we also plan to sell car accessories.”
