The COVID Effect

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned is a defensive cleaning program that is a proactive viral pathogen cleaning that helps ensure cleanliness

The Coronavirus has changed the social landscape more than we could have imagined. The terms social distancing and the new normal have become indoctrinated in our vocabulary. The interaction with family, friends, and business associates has been directly impacted. The traditional handshake is now riddled with fear. Instead it’s better to tap feet or “elbow bump.”

As in the years following World War II, great effort was spent putting measures in place to reduce the likelihood of another global conflict. Likewise, prevention of future viral pandemics is top of mind for most the world’s governments and security services for the immediate future. SERVPRO® of Arnold/North Jefferson County professionals are uniquely prepared during this unprecedented time to clean and disinfect your home or business according to the protocols set forth by the CDC. We have years of experience in dealing with biological contaminants, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform on a daily basis.

SERVPRO is being called on by numerous businesses and community leaders to perform the necessary bioremediation services to clean, disinfect, and sanitize their properties. SERVPRO uses EPA-approved products and follows the CDC guidelines for cleanup practices.

The CDC recommends usage of a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant with claims against similar pathogens to the coronavirus. Multiple products in the SERVPRO product line meet this standard and carry the ERAregistered emerging pathogens claims.

Will it all get back to normal? Yes. When will that happen? That remains unclear. What is clear is that normalcy will return, and all along the way SERVPRO® of Arnold/North Jefferson County will be there for your business, your home, and your customers. We are in this with you and proudly stand beside our first responders in fighting this silent enemy
