Take Proactive Cleaning Precautions!
As we all know, the CDC is responding to a respiratory disease outbreak caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19). This outbreak is prompting a lifestyle change for everyone as we attempt to slow the spread of the virus across the country.
It is believed that the virus is spread mainly from person-to-person or through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. And the World Health Organization recommends basic proactive measures like frequent hand washing, social distancing, and good respiratory hygiene. Although not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
How can SERVPRO of Boone County Help?
Trained in adhering to the highest cleaning and sanitation standards, our professionals offer cleaning services including the removal of biohazard contaminants. While following the guidelines provided by the CDC and local authorities, we can perform a PROACTIVE CLEANUP that involves facility or structure cleaning and disinfection where there is no known threat of COVID-19 contamination or exposure. There is currently no product tested against this particular strain of the coronavirus, however, our proprietary cleaning agent, SERVPROXIDE, is an EPA-certified, hospital-grade disinfectant that has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19) on hard, non-porous surfaces.
The CDC encourages cleaning of high-touch surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, etc. While proactive cleaning will not prevent or protect a building from future contamination if an infected person was to enter the building following the cleaning, it may help minimize the spread of germs by disinfecting high-touch areas and surfaces.
