From one of our very own women in trades – Here is Kirsten who jokingly says “surely we only do this job for photo ops.”  The photos are great!  But I do hope she loves this window cleaning for more than just the photos.



@drewlacarte (Drew Lacarte, Black Tie Construction Team)

Here’s an entry from Drew showing his “Tag team Tuesday” shot while doing a post-construction window clean at Lougheed Heights.  We love seeing our crew hanging together.

Locally owned window cleaning company supports Young Mom’s program on Vancouver Island

2020 will definitely go down in history as a strange and difficult year for everyone on the planet, but that has not prevented our Black Tie Victoria team to start the busy cleaning season on a high note, with record sales and great reviews from owners and property managers alike.

Did you know that, despite having started in Vancouver, Black Tie Property Services Victoria is locally owned and that our Island team, based in Victoria, is solely focused on serving the Greater Victoria Region? As active members of the community, we want to ensure we give back, and support the amazing organizations making a difference in our region.


One of the organizations we love to support is Herowork Victoria. They are a beautiful community of people who organize and complete Radical Renovations, helping charities better their spaces and infrastructure.  We are proud to say that this is the third year that Black Tie Victoria has worked helped with Herowork with their renovation projects.

Last month, we had the privilege of working alongside Herowork.  We scrubbed the Kiwanis Young Family Centre with waterfed pole and pressure washed it to make it look clean and beautiful before it could be painted.
This is in support of the YMCA-YWCA of Vancouver Island’s Young Moms program to help single moms and their young kids get the housing and help they need.

Our team spent a day over the weekend, power washing and scrubbing the property, leaving it spotless and giving our crew a great sense of accomplishment and warm community vibes. We are grateful to the Herowork team for allowing us the opportunity to help out on this project, and look forward to more volunteer opportunities in the future.


If you know of any volunteer opportunities, or anyone in the Victoria area that could use our help, please let us know! Thanks to Paul and his team for creating this fun video of our day with them.

How Black Tie Services is staying connected to our customers during COVID-19

In 2019, led by it’s director of rope access operations, Phill Walter, Black Tie worked hard to implement COR safety protocols within the entire company. In the spring of 2020, management was excited about launching Lunch & Learn programs to share this accomplishment of COR certification with its property management clients.

But then, COVID-19 happened and Sebastien Nault, CEO of Black Tie spearheading the initiative, was left feeling “dejected and frustrated”.
