Viruses Disinfection and Clean-Up Procedures

In this article, we will provide our knowledge and recommendations of how to conduct cleaning and disinfection of any type of property, whether it’s an office building or your residential house.

We set up some guidelines for facilities that had any type of virus case.

  • Step no.1 - Cleaning - Removing dirt, and any type of debris from  surfaces. It does not kill the virus, but by removing the top dirt layer, it allows us to move on to the next step.
  • Step no.2 - Disinfecting - using EPA-registered disinfectant agents to kill microorganisms on surfaces and items.

How do we make sure we are disinfecting properly?

There are a few questions we want to ask ourselves in order to achieve our disinfection goals:

  • Which disinfectant are we using? The EPA provides a list of disinfectants that we should use.
  • What type of wipes should we use? Either a disposable towel or microfiber or even a wet wipe. As long as we change them frequently. (“use the cloth once, use the cloth in only one surface, use the cloth in only one direction”)
  • Where are we disposing the used and contaminated towels? In a sealed bag, then following our jurisdiction laws and regulations regarding the waste.
  • Personal protective equipment is crucial - gloves, full face respirators, cover-all suites are our everyday outfit. This protects our employees and our customers.
  • Do we have enough supplies for the job? We always take extra supply, whether it’s additional disinfectants or additional rags.
  • Are the cleaning staff sufficiently trained? Our crews are trained and experienced to conduct any type of disinfecting and cleaning process.
  • How do we know that surfaces are cleaned when the job is done? ATP swab test measuring actively growing living cells on a certain surface . It is very important to test before and after, random surfaces being cleaned, in order to see if our disinfecting methods worked!

Mold Remediation

We Restoration can provide mold remediation for attics, basements, bathrooms, and any other area of a property. We follow the IICRC’s S520 protocol—the industry’s most stringent standard. We don’t simply treat surface mold. Instead, we provide full-service mold abatement to prevent it from returning.

Water Damage Restoration

As your water damage restoration contractor, we will follow the IICRC’s S500 protocol, using specialized tools for any required demolition, cleaning, drying, and sanitizing. We can also connect you with local professionals to handle services such as waterproofing, fixing leaks, and much more.

Air Duct & HVAC Cleaning

We Restoration can thoroughly clean and sanitize HVAC systems and air ducts as part of our mold remediation projects. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) also recommends regular HVAC cleaning to prevent mold growth and keep indoor air quality healthy.

Asbestos Abatement

For most of the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in materials, such as insulation, floor tiles, ceilings, and more. Left undisturbed, asbestos can be harmless. However, if you’re planning to replace old insulation or remodel your home, you’ll need a professional asbestos abasement company to ensure these items are disposed of properly.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl spaces often provide the ideal environment for mold growth. Because they are out of sight, many homeowners don’t realize there’s a mold problem until it has become extensive. At We Restoration, not only can we remediate mold in crawl spaces, but we can also provide encapsulation to keep mold-causing moisture at bay.

Water & Flood Damage Equipment Rental

As the region’s premier water damage restoration company, we have a large stock of high-performance water damage tools available. If you’re looking to rent this equipment for your home or business following flooding or heavy rain, you can turn to us for dehumidifiers, air movers, and more.

Emergency Services

When heavy rain causes significant flooding or a pipe bursts, you need a water damage restoration company that can respond quickly to your needs. At We Restoration, we provide 24/7 emergency service to address sudden water infiltration and contain the damage.

COVID-19 Disinfection

We Restoration closely follows the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for COVID-19 disinfection. We offer specialized services for factories, warehouses, shops, offices, homes, and many other types of buildings to keep occupants safe.
