Commercial Disinfectant for a Clean Office

Even regular cleaning with over-the-counter disinfectants has the potential to leave behind viruses, bacteria and even fungi that can cause illnesses. While they may not bother most people, anyone with a compromised immune system can become seriously ill. If the COVID-19 pandemic taught people nothing else, it proved how easily and quickly illness-causing agents can be transmitted.

To ensure the highest level of disinfecting possible, call in the professionals. They have access to commercial disinfectants that destroy germs rather than simply reducing their numbers. Professional remediators also have high-tech methods that are proven effective such as chemical atomizers that coat surfaces with a fast-drying mist.

It’s important to understand that sanitation is different from disinfection. Sanitation refers to cleaning, typically with products designed to lower germ levels to acceptable levels. Disinfection is the process of killing 100 percent of infectious agents within 10 minutes as per the EPA. The strategies meet with CDC recommendations.

Professional remediators will take a sample to identify the type of infectious agents that are in the environment and verify the findings through a laboratory analysis. Specific contaminated areas can be sealed off to be treated independently and whole office disinfection can be provided. Areas are disinfected and all resultant debris is disposed of in a safe manner.

Disinfection is particularly important in Florida where cases of COVID-19 are surging with people returning to work and an influx of tourists to the area. Even though vaccines are available, they don’t prevent people from contracting COVID-19 – it mitigates the symptoms if someone gets it and reduces the potential for hospitalization. However, new variants are making an appearance. The use of commercial-grade disinfectants aren’t as effective as professional methods.

Offices that have been treated with commercial disinfectants can leave traces of contaminants, unlike professional disinfection. There’s still a significant portion of the population that remains unvaccinated and professional disinfection is the best way to keep the environment safe for everyone.

How a Restoration Company Helps Through the Disaster Process

There are many types of disasters that can affect families and business owners in Florida ranging from fires and floods to hurricanes. Most individuals simply call their insurance company to make a claim when a call to a restoration company could be more appropriate. Engaging the services of a restoration company can help individuals through the disaster process in multiple ways.

Temporary Mitigation

Any kind of disaster generates emotional stress and trauma that can affect an individual’s decision-making process. A restoration company responds quickly and will take immediate action to mitigate further damage. That can include securing windows, doors, the roof or other openings.

Security Measures

Believe it or not, there are intruders that will enter a structure after a disaster, even though the building is unsafe, thereby opening individuals up to a lawsuit if they’re injured. A restoration company understands the need to secure a building from entry to protect property owners and until various officials have performed any required examinations.

Works With Insurance

Restoration companies work directly with insurance companies to salvage a wide range of furnishings and remove items that are damaged beyond repair. It’s beneficial for clients and insurance companies prefer to restore rather than replace whenever possible.

Water Removal and Cleanup

Storms, flooding, sewer backups, and water from extinguishing flames are all ways in which furnishings and building interiors can sustain water damage. Specialized equipment is utilized to remove as much water as possible. The restoration company will perform clean up of the property, remove debris, and arrange for the appropriate method of waste removal.

Mold Remediation

Mold quickly grows and spreads in warm, damp conditions. A restoration company will utilize a lab to identify exactly what type of mold is present and establish the correct protocols for its removal.

Restoration

When attended to quickly, professional restoration services can evacuate a wide variety of furnishing and electronics and restore them to like-new condition. Moisture is removed, mold remediated, unpleasant odors eliminated, and furnishings completely cleaned and refreshed.

Rebuilding

Multiple types of rebuilding and restoration may be required, depending upon the nature of the disaster. A restoration company will ensure the integrity of the structure and replace walls, floors, ceilings and roofs that have been compromised.

Coronavirus Sanitation for Homes and Businesses

Vaccines are now available for the COVID-19 coronavirus, but it will probably be several years before herd immunity has been achieved. That will mean a continued regimen of disinfecting and sanitation. However, COVID-19 isn’t the only coronavirus that home and business owners should be concerned about in terms of safety since viruses can mutate quickly.

There are numerous types of known viruses within the coronavirus family that can affect the respiratory system. Depending on the virus, they cause illnesses ranging from the common cold and flu to viral pneumonia and the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular sanitation measures are important at any time of the year to protect the safety of families, business customers and staff.

Professional Sanitation

Hiring a professional sanitation service is the best solution for an elevated level of protection at any time of the year, but especially during the pandemic and in seasonal flu seasons. Professionals have access to specialized disinfectants, sanitizers, and technological solutions. They’re highly effective and safe to use around people and pets.

Another benefit of professional services is that staff are highly trained in mitigation and eradication techniques. They’re knowledgeable in the most common vectors and surfaces for contamination. Professional sanitation companies will also work with insurance companies to ensure the least amount of out-of-pocket expenses for clients.

Businesses

Businesses are required to establish mitigation measures to minimize the potential for COVID-19 spread. When a COVID-19 outbreak can be traced to a specific business, it may result in the enterprise being closed. The services of a professional sanitation company are an integral element for reopening or maintaining a business in which patrons feel safe in frequenting.

Schools

Every parent knows how easily and quickly infections can be passed among students and teachers. Learning is severely disrupted for everyone concerned. It’s extremely difficult to ensure proper handwashing protocols are maintained and limit touching of surfaces. Professional sanitation services are a critical preventative measure.

Homes

No matter how careful families are, there are numerous ways in which coronaviruses can be brought into the home. Students can become infected at school and parents can bring the viruses home through interactions with customers. Professional sanitation and mitigation services are equally appropriate for maintaining health in homes.

Ways to Prevent Fires at your Commercial Property

A fire is one of the most destructive and expensive disasters with which you’ll have to contend. The good news is that there are a number of measures you can take to reduce the potential for a fire and keep your commercial property safe.

Create a Plan

Create a plan for protecting your property just as you would for your home and family. For instance, identify critical areas where flammable liquids or materials may be located so you can inform the fire department when they arrive.

Reduce Fire Hazards

Reducing or eliminating the number of reasons and environments in which a fire can start is essential. That means ensuring that flammable or hazardous materials and liquids are stored correctly. Keeping up the maintenance on equipment and machines is critical. Always make sure electrical wiring adheres to the highest current standards. Old and defective wiring is one of the number one sources of fires. If employees smoke, make sure they do so in a designated area away from the building.

Fire Prevention Equipment

A sprinkler system should be installed in every commercial property. It can stop a small fire from expanding into an inferno and save lives. Smoke detectors and fire detection systems are invaluable for an early warning in the event of a fire. Every property should also be equipped with fire extinguishers and employees should be instructed in their use.

Evacuations

If the property is one where people will be living or working, employees and tenants should all be informed of where exits and fire extinguishers are located. If a fire does occur, you’ll need to have a list of all tenants and/or employees available for first responders and the fire department.

Vacant Properties

Even if a property is vacant, it requires protection. Fire and smoke detectors, along with sprinkler systems should be installed. Eliminate any unnecessary items or materials that would provide fuel for a conflagration. Be sure to install security cameras, as vacant buildings are often a target for arson and vandalism. It’s also a good idea to have security personnel conduct regular checks on the building.

Comprehensive Cleaning after a Disaster

Different types of disasters call for a diverse range of cleanup and remediation methods. A professional restoration and recovery company is an essential part of the process. The experts have the experience, expertise, and technology to address everything from fire, flood and mold to the after-effects of a natural disaster and pandemic infections.

Air Quality

Professional restoration companies will analyze samples to identify the type of sanitation that’s required. Contaminated areas will be sealed off and technological solutions employed to remove any infested areas. Depending on where the problem originates, the company can perform cleaning of ductwork and it may also include mold remediation.

Biohazards

There are many components associated with biohazard cleanup and can include the removal of items contaminated by blood, urine and feces, along with animal or human tissues. Solid items will be collected in a biohazard bag and taken for incineration. Autoclave or chemical treatments will be performed for liquids. All appropriate areas will be disinfected.

COVID-19

There are many types of coronaviruses, including COVID-19, that a professional restoration and recovery company can address. Samples will be taken and analyzed to identify the type of infection that’s present. The experts will seal off any contaminated areas for treatment or the entire structure may be addressed. Surfaces will be disinfected with antimicrobial solutions specific to the type of infection. Treatment is equally applicable for COVID-19, flu viruses, and communicable bacterial infections.

Fire

The professionals aid in every step of fire recovery, from boarding up the structure and removing debris to working directly with insurance companies. They perform smoke, soot and water removal, restoration and replacement of affected areas, and provide ozone treatment. They’ll pack and inventory any salvageable possessions and use technologically advanced techniques to clean any items that can be saved.

Mold

A mold infestation is one of the most common occurrences that individuals may encounter. Comprehensive cleaning will include positive identification of the mold type, sealing off the infected area, and removal of affected materials without contamination of adjoining areas. The space will be cleaned, disinfected, and any surfaces that can’t be cleaned will be removed and disposed of appropriately.

Storms

Clean up after a storm is an enormous task. A restoration company will secure the premises, provide water removal, and mold remediation. Roofs, walls, floors and other areas that have been compromised will be repaired or replaced. Waste and debris removal are provided, along with the restoration of furniture and belongings that can be salvaged.

Water

Restoration specialists will identify where the water is originating and utilize professional drying systems to remove liquids.

Leave Damage Restoration to the Pros

Damage to homes and businesses can take many forms, from water, smoke and fire to mold and biohazardous materials. While many individuals may have plenty of handyman skills, home and business owners should always leave damage restoration to the professionals. There are a variety of dangers involved that restoration professionals are specially trained to handle.

Water is one of the most common types of damage that individuals will experience in South Florida, whether it’s from roof damage, leaky pipes and water heaters, flooding from rainstorms and hurricanes, or water from extinguishing a fire. Damage from any of those sources will require extensive work and there’s more to consider than just the damage.

When floors, attics, and furnishings get wet, the warm Florida environment fosters the growth of mold that can begin to replicate in as little as 24 hours. There are dozens of mold types that can be present and the proper treatment can’t be applied without knowing exactly which type of mold it is. Precautions must also be in place to prevent its spread as it’s removed and prevent other areas from being contaminated.

Restoration professionals are also uniquely qualified to address biohazards that can include crime scenes and septic systems that have overflowed, along with pathogens encompassing bacteria and viruses. All of those situations require a highly-trained team of specialists for clean-up, disposal, and to mitigate contamination.

There are many reasons to hire restoration experts. They have access to methods, techniques and technology not available to the average individual. When contacted promptly, restoration professionals are able to address damage to structures, furniture and possessions to remove water, mold, odors, and smoke damage. They can preserve and restore items ranging from drapes and furniture to electronics.

The services provided by restoration specialists are especially important to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses, particularly during major outbreaks of flu or in the current pandemic. Those services help keep families, employees and customers safe, while providing part of a comprehensive plan for reopening businesses.

Disinfecting Large Spaces

Businesses, schools, and commercial properties present special challenges when there’s a need for disinfection ranging from mold growth to the COVID-19 virus. The company performing the procedure will need to have a highly trained team and be able to deliver services tailored to the specific reason for disinfection.

It’s important to note that cleaning is not the same as disinfecting. Cleaning is typically the process of sweeping, vacuuming, dusting, and similar tasks to remove dirt and dust. Some products used in ordinary cleaning activities may have disinfection properties, but it’s not guaranteed. Disinfection, particularly in today’s environment of COVID-19, means a very specific process designed to kill bacteria and viruses.

Infectious agents are most often spread through airborne droplets when people breathe, talk, and interact at close range. Those infectious droplets stay in the air for a significant amount of time and can continue to infect others. Additionally, traditional air filtration systems and AC units can also serve to spread and exacerbate infections.

A professional disinfection company will take samples and have them analyzed in a lab to identify all types of infectious agents within a commercial space. A detailed plan will be created according to CDC recommendations for disinfection. Ordinarily, contaminated areas will be sealed off. In open commercial spaces, that’s often not an option and disinfection will require unique solutions, depending on the industry involved.

Disinfection procedures may include a combination of techniques to ensure complete coverage of the facility, along with any electronics and soft surfaces in offices and similar areas. Sanitizing procedures may or may not require the temporary closing of the facility as each industry and situation is different.

It’s essential that facility owners obtain a clearance report following disinfection procedures. It certifies the safety and efficacy of the sanitization procedure and provides a record for any pertinent agency that may request it such as OSHA.

It’s important to remember that disinfection procedures are applicable before contamination has actually occurred. It’s an essential safety measure that’s particularly important during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Business Sanitization Solutions

COVID-19 has presented business owners with unique challenges to maintain a superior level of sanitation to help in flattening the curve and curbing the spread of the virus. The pandemic has also raised questions for homeowners, particularly those with the most vulnerable populations. As the virus has expanded its reach, additional demographics have been identified as vulnerable making sanitation solutions for COVID-19 essential.

It doesn’t matter whether a business is currently open, had a reopening, or has been ordered to shut down again, sanitation is an important element of dealing with the virus. The Rapid Restoration Recovery team works closely with clients to identify all infected areas and eliminate all viral hazards resulting from any cause. A clearance report is provided upon completion of each project.

The service is especially beneficial for supermarkets, convenience stores, and warehouses that have been open throughout the pandemic. It provides an important safety measure to protect essential workers to ensure they’re available to serve the public and for continued productivity. Hundreds of asymptomatic shoppers may enter a store each day with the potential to spread the virus.

Sanitation measures are equally critical for schools to protect students, teachers, and staff. Learning institutions are being required to open in August, will need to submit a reopening plan, and set forth safety precautions. Viral sanitation services will play a significant role in that process.

Hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other medical facilities must operate and ensuring that the COVID-19 virus doesn’t spread is an ongoing battle in those environments. With hundreds of patients and medical staff entering each day, the current situation requires more stringent protocols than normal.

The virus struck older individuals and those with underlying health conditions at first. Now it’s affecting an increasing number of young and healthy adults. Many have the virus, but are asymptomatic and are bringing COVID-19 home to friends and family without being aware. It’s just one of the myriad of reasons why Rapid Restoration Recovery sanitization services are an essential part of keeping people safe in businesses and at home.

Safe Schools Begin with Regular Sanitization

During the annual flu season, it’s extremely easy for viruses to be passed among students and staff, family members, and others within the community. That situation is heightened with the COVID-19 virus that is spread between individuals much faster and easier than ordinary flu. Rapid Restoration Recovery has earned a reputation as South Florida’s premier provider of sanitization services for schools.

Florida schools are required to open in August despite the pandemic. Each school must have a reopening plan in place that addresses needs particular to the coronavirus. Maintaining a safe environment begins with regular and thorough sanitization. As educational institutions reopen to welcome back students, Rapid Restoration Recovery has the techniques and technology to stop COVID-19 in its tracks and confirm that educational facilities are 100 percent contaminant free.

There’s a significant difference between cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing. According to guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Cleaning utilizes soap and water and while it removes viruses from surfaces, it doesn’t kill them.
  • Disinfecting kills viruses and bacteria through the use of chemicals, but doesn’t remove them from treated surfaces.
  • Sanitization works best as it also reduces the overall number of bacteria and viruses on surfaces, thereby lowering the risk of spreading infection.

To provide a safe learning environment during the pandemic era, schools will need the services of a professional sanitization company that can collect samples and obtains laboratory analysis of the specific types of infectious contaminants that are present. Contaminated areas must be sealed off to prevent spread and the correct solution applied for the specific type of infectious disease. CDC guidelines indicate that learning institutions don’t even have to close to have the facility sanitized.

The CDC recommends that private and public schools begin preparing now for a return to classes amid the existing COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming flu season. Regular sanitization will play a key role in helping to keep schools safe, flattening the curve, and curbing the spread.

Trusted Coronavirus Restoration

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented special challenges for schools, homes, businesses, and commercial properties. Highly contagious and with no treatment or vaccines available, expert sanitation services are essential. Coronavirus restoration is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ongoing protocols for preventative measures.

Coronavirus restoration services are offered for a wide range of locations. The sanitation services for homes are particularly beneficial for anyone that has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Talking, coughing, and even normal breathing can deposit droplets that contaminate surfaces and increases the potential for reinfection. The services are also advantageous for those that want to take precautionary measures to keep their family safe and healthy.

Many people that have contracted the virus don’t demonstrate any symptoms, making it important for businesses to maintain an elevated standard of cleanliness and hygiene. That can be accomplished through coronavirus restoration. The mitigation services are an advantage for any business and especially so for food and beverage-based endeavors.

From childcare centers to colleges, the debate rages on as to when the facilities will open and how. Coronavirus restoration is absolutely necessary to provide the level of safety necessary to ensure that children of all ages and young adults can pursue learning and educational opportunities in a sanitized environment.

Gyms, salons, banks, supermarkets, manufacturing plants, and similar businesses where large numbers of people gather are in special need of coronavirus restoration. They provide a prime vector for the spread of the virus, along with hospitals and doctors and dental offices. Even though many healthcare-related industries are offering more tele-medicine visits, many patients still require in-person services.

Individuals are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing, but a great number of people aren’t following CDC recommendations. Coronavirus restoration services are available for any home, business, or commercial enterprise to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The services provide a healthy and hygienic environment where outbreaks have occurred and any location where the potential exists.
