The appearance of the COVID-19 began an unprecedented time for cleaning and disinfecting your business. Business owners couldn't have been prepared for doing business in the midst of a global pandemic nor the thorough disinfection and sanitation that it would require. Fortunately, ServiceMaster Water & Fire Restoration by J and S, experts in sanitizing and creating clean, healthy environments was prepared to help with previously laid out protocols based in science.
At ServiceMaster®, we specialize in ensuring clean, safe environments to help break the chain of infection due to both common germs and emerging pathogens like SARS-CoV-2. Disinfection of your business starts with a comprehensive cleaning. Because pathogens thrive in dirty environments, the most effective disinfection can't take place unless all surfaces are completely clean.
Infectious diseases are defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as "illness caused by germs (such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi) that enter the body, multiply, and cause an infection." These can be spread in several different ways, including:
Emerging diseases are previously known diseases that have recently increased or are threatening to increase soon. They also include novel infections, or those infections that have never been seen before. These can include newly discovered infections, infections that are new to an area, infections that have reappeared in an area, and infections that are caused by bacteria that has gained antibiotic resistance.
At ServiceMaster®, our team is trained to reduce the risk of emerging and infectious diseases by eliminating pathogens using the best practices set out by the CDC. We use the highest quality, EPA certified disinfectants for the most thorough cleaning possible.
Different pathogens have differing levels of difficulty for inactivation. In layman's terms, this means that some pathogens are easier to kill than other. Many emerging diseases, including SARS-CoV-2 are enveloped viruses. This is a good thing in terms of disinfection. Enveloped viruses are more susceptible to disinfectants, so they're less difficult to inactivate. On the flip side, they're also easier to spread and re-contaminate. This means it's vital to get ahead of the pathogens and keep your business clean.
You know that it's vital to keep your business safe, but when is it time to call a professional. If you find that you need to set up a regular cleaning routine or that your facility has been exposed to a positive case of Covid-19 or another infectious disease, it's a good idea to call in a professional cleaning crew to help. ServiceMaster Water & Fire Restoration by J and S has both the knowledge and equipment to keep your business in the clear.
