St. Louis Cleaning and Restoration is doing its part to help protect your home and family from the spread of COVID-19. This newly discovered coronavirus disease has dominated the news cycle and disrupted our everyday lives. Our team of certified and experienced technicians is ready to combat the spread of this infectious disease.
Germs, bacteria, and viruses can end up on the surfaces in your home and stay there for days. Keeping your home clean is nothing new; however, using the correct chemicals to prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading is something we all need to know.
Keep Your Home Clean and Loved Ones Protected
What we now know is that the novel coronavirus can spread from person to person and happen among close contacts. Transmission of coronavirus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets. Current evidence suggests that novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials.
Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for the prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households. Cleaning will only remove germs and impurities from surfaces. Disinfecting kills germs when the right chemicals are used. This can lower the risk of spreading infection.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has compiled a list of products that have been proven effective on similar or harder-to-kill viruses, such as the rhinovirus that causes the common cold. It is expected that these products will work on the coronavirus, as well.
Daily cleaning and disinfection of frequently-touched surfaces in most households are crucial in preventing the spread of COVID-19. These common areas include:
- Light Switches
- Remote Controls
If someone in your household does contract the virus, they should be isolated in a separate room. A primary care doctor should be informed and give guidance on recovering. All members of the household should avoid contact with the ill family member. If a separate bathroom is not available, the bathroom should be cleaned and disinfected after each use by the infected family member.
Call the Cleaning Professionals
St. Louis Cleaning & Restoration can support you with disinfecting your home and prevention measures. We use a disinfectant that is EPA-registered and proven to kill the human coronavirus. An electrostatic sprayer filled with a disinfectant will evenly treat the most-touched surfaces in your home better than traditional cleaning methods.
The electrostatic sprayer gives a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it exits the nozzle. The charged molecules are attracted to the surface they are applied to. Electrostatic spray technology is effective because it provides a broader and faster approach to disinfecting an entire house.
Our technicians will not spread any viruses in your home. They will be protected by wearing the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This equipment is important because if there is someone in your home who has been infected with COVID-19, we will be able to safely clean your home with the PPE’s.
