Disaster relief on the job

Maria E. Peña-Zaldivar is no stranger to dirt, dust and mould in houses; it is her job to remove them.

Working for Tri-Star Disaster Recovery, Zaldivar does mould-cleaning for houses of all sizes. While she has done regular cleaning before, mould cleaning is more complicated, she said.

The 27-year-old was born and raised in Cuba and lived in Spain for 6 years. She graduated from business administration, but left her job on the desk to enroll in the army in Spain. Coming to Canada in 2010, she immediately took on the role as a regular cleaner for Tri-Star, before moving on to do mould-cleaning in 2011.
