With Coronavirus able to survive for an extended period of time on surfaces, disinfection has become a concern for many businesses.
Whether you’re an essential business and are trying to maintain a safe environment for your customers and staff, or you want to make sure your commercial space is properly disinfected and ready to reopen, here are some common questions we’re getting from business owners:
How can I avoid Coronavirus?
Avoiding Coronavirus is all about prevention. Here are some important tips for avoiding this (and similar) viruses and colds:
• If you are sick, STAY HOME unless seeking medical treatment.
What is Coronavirus Disinfection?
Much like any infectious disease disinfection service, Coronavirus Disinfection is a process intended to address potential pathogen contamination. During Coronavirus Disinfection, a professional will apply an aerosolized disinfectant solution followed by thorough, detailed, disinfection of surfaces that are regularly touched. Some common areas of focus are door knobs, counter tops, desks, computers, bathrooms, and furniture in waiting areas, but each project is unique.
A qualified Infectious Disease Disinfection service will use products specially designed to disinfect surfaces, that have been proven effective for this purpose, and which are nonreactive with other cleaning products.
Who needs Coronavirus Disinfection?
Infectious Disease Disinfection is provided for two reasons, as a response to a known event such as someone getting sick, or as a preventative to address potential contamination. Most recently, we’ve been hired by many commercial businesses to provide preventative disinfection services in an effort to keep their staff and customers safe.
Some businesses that may need Coronavirus Disinfection are essential businesses that are attempting to remain open, condo and apartment complexes, nursing homes and medical care facilities, and commercial businesses and offices that are preparing to reopen.
How do you hire a Disinfection Service?
Just like anything else, when hiring an Infectious Disease Disinfection service, you want to look for a company that’s been providing that service for a long time. You certainly don’t want to hire a company that’s learning at your property, particularly with a serious hazard such Coronavirus. Unfortunately, due to the recent need, there are a lot of cleaning companies and contractors that are jumping on this bandwagon so to speak.
Here are a few things to look for:
• Their crews should wear protective clothing and full-face respirators to keep them safe while they’re performing the work.
