The company will also provide pest control, sewage collection, and waste removal services, among several others, it stated.

Isnaad, a subsidiary of Imdaad that provides a comprehensive range of Soft Facility Management, manpower supply, and specialized cleaning services, also signed a contract with PCFC Hotels to offer a comprehensive suite of Soft FM services at the hotel facility. Isnaad had earlier assisted QE2 during its launch.
