COVID-19 RESTORATION COMPANY BOCA RATON

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.

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.
