Coronavirus Cleanup Grand Junction
Delta Restoration Services® is now offering home and business disinfectant services. Our aim is to reduce the risks associated with Coronavirus COVID-19 infection. We hope the information below is useful to you, your family, loved ones, clients, and business associates during this pandemic.
Coronavirus Facts and Coronavirus Cleanup
By now, many people are becoming more familiar with the basics of this new strain of virus. The new virus – SARS-CoV-2 – was detected first in the fall of 2019, in China. The disease caused by this virus is “Novel Coronavirus,” or “COVID-19” (coronavirus 2019) as we have come to call it. SARS is an acronym for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The SARS-CoV-2 virus can lead to the COVID-19 disease, the symptoms of which include fever, dry cough, and respiratory distress.
Homeowners, business owners, and property managers should be aware of several important facts concerning COVID-19 and associated cleaning services, which we list below. It is our mission to protect our community in any way possible.
The facts about our disinfectants
Our hospital-grade disinfectants eliminate bacteria, viruses and germs and are approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for use against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the cause of COVID-19.* If you need cleaning services and a company to professionally apply disinfectant in your home or business, we are here and ready to help.
Non pharmaceutical Intervention – Novel Coronavirus Cleaning
The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends “non pharmaceutical intervention” as the best way to reduce the spread of the virus at this time. Since there currently is no known “cure” or vaccine for the virus, we’re turning to the basics – social distancing, washing hands, and cleaning hard surfaces and soft contents.
Coronavirus Cleaning For Hard Surfaces And Touch Points
Initial reports show that SARS-CoV-2 typically remains viable (transmittable) on hard surfaces for up to three days. This is different than the flu virus, which has a shorter infectious time frame. Since SARS-CoV-2 can remain viable on surfaces for a much longer period of time, it raises the risk of exposure and potential infection. This highlights the need for routine cleaning and disinfection.
The goal of our decontamination services is to thoroughly clean and disinfect all surfaces, with a focus on any “hot spots” or frequently touched surfaces, including but not limited to:
- Door knobs and locks
- Soap pumps
- TV remote controls
- Keyboards and computer mice
- Elevator buttons
- Bed rails
- Toilet seats and handles
- Faucet handles
- Office or smart phones
- Light switches
- Cupboard handles
- Hand railings
- Credit card keypads
- Vending machine buttons
We take special care to clean “high touch points” as well as the surrounding area (typically 3-12 inches) for an effective cleaning. While the type of cleaning we use depends on the type of space we’re cleaning, the goal is to be extremely thorough.
Grand Junction Soft Contents Cleaning
We have also learned from other industry experts that the Novel Coronavirus can remain viable in soft (porous) contents as well, such as clothing, shoes, bedding, linens, and towels. Delta Restoration Services® employs an Esporta Wash System at our state-of-the-art cleaning facility, which is the highest quality soft goods cleaning system on the market today. The Esporta is capable of substantially higher levels of cleaning than standard commercial wash systems, which includes the ability to remove harmful bacteria and other micro-organisms.
Emergency Pathogens Program For Novel Coronavirus Cleaning
The EPA has an “Emergency Pathogens Program” in place that provides guidance for effective cleaning to mitigate the spread of infection. The program calls for using cleaning agents known to kill similar viruses.
We refer to this program for our cleaning and disinfectant services. As mentioned above, we use EPA-registered disinfectants that are approved for use against SARS-CoV-2 in helping make home and businesses safer and healthier.
Professional Cleaning For Peace Of Mind
The best way to protect your home or business and the people in it is regular cleaning. That includes wiping down high touch points several times a day, and more comprehensive professional cleaning and disinfectant services. While some believe that the summer may slow the spread of the virus, experts agree that we will continue to battle this disease until a vaccine is available, which is not expected for at least 12 months. That means that cleaning and disinfecting on a continual basis needs to become our new normal.
Experience Disinfecting Highly Contaminated Spaces
As experienced professionals who are licensed and insured restoration contractors, we are qualified to provide disinfectant services associated with Novel Coronavirus. Having previously cleaned hundreds of sewage spills and mold-infested properties, we are prepared to deal with heavily contaminated areas capable of causing adverse health effects.
