As part of the effort to help businesses impacted by COVID-19, we at Mold Solutions & Inspections are responding to the current global pandemic by offering fully approved CDC cleaning for homes, businesses and facilities. Our World Health Organization participation in Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) for Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19), has assured our countless customers that our employees know the severity of providing detailed cleaning to any business so they may stay open during this pandemic.
Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 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 prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings. It is unknown how long the air inside a room occupied by someone with confirmed COVID-19 remains potentially infectious.
The issues that most businesses and even homes face today is the common surface touch points such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks, gas pump handles, touch screens, ATM machines, and more. Simple spraying of chemicals will not efficiently keep your home or business free from potential Covid-19 transmission, while hiring a company not trained in this particular type of cleaning could result in damage to personal products due to over saturation of said chemicals.
We at Mold Solutions & Inspections have been providing full Bio-Hazard Cleaning and Infectious Disease Cleanup since 1998, and we are a certified IICRC firm which means every employee within our company completes extensive yearly training. We use the most advanced equipment and up-to-date techniques, while following CDC guidelines so your business may remain open during this pandemic. We also offer discounted rates for
Control & Prevention
Measures for protecting workers from exposure to, and infection with, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), depend on the type of work being performed and exposure risk, including potential for interaction with people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and contamination of the work environment. Employers should adapt infection control strategies based on a thorough hazard assessment, using appropriate combinations of engineering and administrative controls, safe work practices, and personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent worker exposures. Some OSHA standards that apply to preventing occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 also require employers to train workers on elements of infection prevention, including PPE.
General Guidance For All Workers & Employers
For all workers, regardless of specific exposure risks, it is always a good practice to:
- Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.
- Always wash hands that are visibly soiled.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Practice good respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home if sick.
- Recognize personal risk factors. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), certain people, including older adults and those with underlying conditions such as heart or lung disease or diabetes, are at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19.
