Guard Against Virus Contamination at Your Home and Business

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

An illustration of coronavirus against a world map background. SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield is the experienced, reliable resource for virus disinfection at your home or business.

The threat posed by viruses, bacteria and other pathogens can range from mild to deadly. While effective treatments and vaccines are available for many familiar diseases, a previously unknown pathogen has the capability to rapidly sweep the globe, leaving us all vulnerable to infection and lacking any reliable treatment.

Many viral pathogens spread mainly through personal contact, especially between people who are within about six feet of one another. Transmission occurs when an infected person coughs or sneezes and produces airborne respiratory droplets. These drops travel through the air and can be inhaled by others, infecting them. To prevent transmission, medical experts advise not gathering in large groups and keeping at least a six-foot distance from others.

It may also be possible to catch a virus by touching a surface or object that has virus cells on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. Research indicates that viral pathogens can live on surfaces from a few hours to a few days. For this reason, experts strongly recommend washing your hands frequently and avoiding touching your face. Obviously, disinfecting the surfaces of objects, furniture and fixtures can play a key role in reducing viral or bacterial contamination.

The CDC Recommends Proactive Cleaning

According to the CDC, “Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of … viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.” Visit the CDC’s website for the latest and most accurate information on the current crisis and viral pathogens.

To protect your family—or if you own a business, your customers and employees—call on SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield to provide professional proactive cleaning, sanitizing and disinfection of commercial and residential properties to minimize the transmission of emergent viral pathogens. At a time of peril, SERVPRO can offer homeowners and business owners extra reassurance that their homes and facilities are clean, disinfected—and safe.

The SERVPRO corporation has always emphasized having the expertise, training, equipment and personnel to respond to just about any disaster, even the most unexpected. Do what you can to keep your family and friends, customers and employees safer now with proactive cleaning of your home or business—just call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield today.

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield will clean, sanitize and disinfect your home or business to eradicate traces of viral and bacterial pathogens. Whether you think your structure may have been contaminated or not, SERVPRO is ready to help prevent future exposure within your building.

Reminder: Although SERVPRO’s cleaning process can remove existing viral pathogens, understand that structures we clean proactively are not protected from future contamination if an infected person subsequently enters the building.

Virus Protection for Your Home and Business

Whether you want to make sure that your home or commercial building is free from contamination or you have a suspected contamination, rely on SERVPRO to restore your peace of mind, health and safety.

When a family member has been infected by a virus, proactive cleaning by SERVPRO can reduce the risk of exposure for other residents of the home and relieve their worries over becoming infected.

With a call to SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield, you will make it clear that your business is doing all it can to protect the health of your customers and the public. Not only that, but you will be helping to keep Americans—those you know and those you’ll never meet—safer.

Five Ways We Were Ready for a Crisis

SERVPRO has built its business on being prepared for disasters with the right know-how, equipment and staffing. We are uniquely ready to provide proactive cleaning of viral pathogens for several reasons.

Our Crews

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield is one of four top-performing local SERVPRO franchises—the others are SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield, SERVPRO of West Hartford and SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield—that are owned and operated by Ralph and Noemi DiCristofaro. With the resources of four franchises, we can get to your job faster, and we allocate staff and equipment—thousands of pieces of equipment and dozens of trucks and other vehicles—as needed to tackle the really big, urgent jobs.

At all times, we are fully staffed and prepared for your most challenging job. Our employees are trained in the use of all our equipment and cleaning products, and we adhere to rigorous safety training and procedures for their protection. Further, commercial and residential customers have counted on SERVPRO for specialized cleanup of biohazards. We know how to handle dangerous chemical and blood-borne pathogen contamination safely, and we know how to clean up after ourselves and dispose of all waste properly.

Our Protective Gear

We are well-supplied with the appropriate personal protective gear for the job. If there is no indication that your facility or home has been contaminated by viral or other pathogens, our crew will wear mid-grade protective suits, but if contamination is suspected or confirmed, they will wear thicker top-grade suits with integrated boots and hoods. Every crewmember wears an individually fit-tested N-95 mask to ensure total protection.

Our Cleaning Products

We use hospital-grade cleaning and disinfecting products, which are safe to use and effective at killing germs, to eradicate viral and bacterial pathogens. At times of crisis, these products can be difficult, if not impossible, for other vendors to locate, but SERVPRO, thanks to its early planning and strong purchasing network, possesses a substantial supply of pathogen-fighting cleaners and disinfectants.

Our Cleaning Process

We attack viral and bacterial contamination with a two-stage approach. First, we seal off your home or business and fog it with cleaning and disinfecting agents. Using electrostatic sprayers and misters, this delivery method allows the agents to penetrate deeply into hard-to-clean crevices.

Our staff then performs hands-on cleaning and disinfecting of every flat surface, including furniture, fixtures and objects, leaving the disinfectant in place for the CDC-recommended amount of time necessary to kill disease-causing germs.

Our Coverage

Don’t worry about additional liability when you hire SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield. We are one of more than 1,800 SERVPRO damage restoration and cleaning franchises across the United States, and we are fully insured against contamination or any other hazards we may encounter.

We Clean and Disinfect Thoroughly, Throughout Your Home or Business

Meeting or exceeding the CDC’s guidelines, SERVPRO cleans and disinfects high-touch surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards and tablets. (Cleaning removes the soil and dirt that harbors infectious agents, while disinfecting kills the remaining environmental pathogens.)

We treat these and other areas of the home or business:

Throughout

  • light switches
  • doorknobs
  • floors: hard surfaces/wood
  • carpets, rugs and mats
  • hallway and stairwell handrails
  • water fountains

Kitchen/food areas

  • tables and chairs
  • countertops and tabletops
  • cabinets and pulls
  • food contact surfaces
  • paper towel/napkin dispensers

  • soap dispensers

Bathrooms

  • fitness equipment
  • storage bins
  • lockers
  • playground equipment
  • elevator cars

Cleaning (Porous and Non-Porous Surfaces)

Cleaning—using a detergent and water to physically remove germs, dirt and impurities from surfaces and objects—can remove but doesn’t necessarily destroy viruses on porous and non-porous surfaces. Because many viruses are encased in fatty envelopes, however, it is likely that the same soaps that break down grease can pierce that outer envelope and inactivate a viral pathogen, too. It’s easier to remove contamination from smooth, non-porous surfaces than from porous surfaces, such as upholstery or carpeting.

We wet-clean non-porous materials, such as hard-surface floors, cabinets, countertops, doorknobs and plumbing fixtures, with a variety of SERVPRO hard-surface cleaners (general purpose) and cleaning methods.

We wet-clean porous, nonwater-sensitive materials, such as carpet, area rugs, upholstered items and draperies, using a hot water extraction or preconditioner-and-rinse method.

Note: Cleaning methods typically used on water-sensitive materials, such as vacuuming or dry sponging, are generally not effective because they do not remove enough soil and residue. Some materials, such as paper and paper products, cannot be cleaned with detergent and water without being damaged.

Disinfection (Non-Porous Surfaces)

SERVPRO follows CDC guidelines to disinfect with a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant, which are known to kill germs and disinfect non-porous surfaces or objects. We spray or mist these chemicals and let the disinfectant remain on the surface for ten minutes, sufficient to kill germs.

According to the CDC’s recommendations, we use disinfecting wipes on electronic items that are frequently touched, such as phones and computers, repeating with additional wipes to keep the surface wet for the recommended length of contact time.

Note: Many porous surfaces, such as carpets, area rugs, upholstered items and draperies, cannot be disinfected.

Safety is First

SERVPRO prioritizes the health and safety of our professionals. We thoroughly train and equip our crews to handle potentially contaminated areas and materials.

On the job, our employees don personal protective equipment, including individually-fitted N-95 masks, appropriate protective suit with integrated hood and boots, nitrile gloves and goggles. As we work to rid your home or place of business of viral or bacterial contamination, we routinely clean and disinfect our own tools and equipment to avoid spreading any germs.

Once we have finished cleaning your home or business, our crew bags and returns towels to the SERVPRO facility for laundering, and bags, removes and disposes of its waste products (such as used gloves, wipes and disposable masks)—leaving nothing behind but a clean and disinfected building.

The company grew over the years, eventually becoming a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists. By the mid-1980s, the Isaacsons had grown their business to almost 650 franchises, and by 2000, they oversaw 1,000 franchises.

In total, SERVPRO’s top corporate management team has an average of twenty years with the firm.

Electronmicroscope photo of coronavirus Protect your home or business from coronavirus contamination with proactive cleaning by SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield.

All of America is focused on the coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the globe. It’s a rapidly changing situation, with many unknowns that generate tremendous fear and anxiety. We are told to stay away from one another, and to stay home if at all possible. We are told to wash hands and to sanitize our homes and businesses.

In response to this crisis, SERVPRO offers proactive cleaning, sanitizing and disinfection of commercial and residential properties to minimize the transmission of emergent viral pathogens, including the coronavirus. At a time of peril, SERVPRO can offer homeowners and business owners extra reassurance that their homes and facilities are clean, disinfected—and safe.

The SERVPRO corporation was prepared for this, because we have always emphasized having the expertise, training, equipment and personnel to respond to just about any disaster—even, today, a pandemic. Do what you can to keep your family and friends, customers and employees safer from this new and uncertain threat with proactive cleaning of your home or business—just call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield today.

Coronavirus and Covid-19

Declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020 by the World Health Organization (WHO), the coronavirus outbreak has changed almost every aspect of social and business life in the U.S. and across the world in just a matter of weeks. In this rapidly evolving situation, Americans have seen unprecedented canceling of events and widespread closings of schools, restaurants and workplaces. Social distancing and staying at home have become the only way to slow the pandemic, until a vaccine or effective treatment is developed and tested.

The coronavirus, which causes Covid-19 disease, is believed to spread mainly through personal contact, especially between people who are within about six feet of one another. Transmission occurs when an infected person coughs or sneezes and produces airborne respiratory droplets. These drops travel through the air and can infect others within that six-foot zone.

But what about surfaces in the home or workplace? It may be possible to catch the virus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that "transmission of novel coronavirus to persons from surfaces contaminated with the virus has not been documented." While new details are being confirmed all the time, the currently available research indicates that coronavirus can live on surfaces from a few hours to a few days.

Along with avoiding groups larger than ten people and keeping a six-foot distance from others, the most common advice from experts is to wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face. Obviously, disinfecting the surfaces of objects, furniture and fixtures plays a key role in reducing contamination.

Visit the CDC’s website for the latest and most accurate information on the coronavirus and Covid-19. Because this outbreak is unfolding so rapidly, we at SERVPRO encourage you to visit the CDC website frequently for updates.

The CDC Recommends Proactive Cleaning

According to the CDC, “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.”

SERVPRO of West Hartford will clean, sanitize and disinfect your home or business to eradicate traces of coronavirus or other pathogens. Whether you think your structure may have been contaminated with coronavirus or not, SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield is ready to help prevent coronavirus exposure within your building.

Reminder: Although SERVPRO’s cleaning process can remove existing viral pathogens, including the coronavirus, structures we clean proactively are not protected from future coronavirus contamination if an infected person subsequently enters the building.

We Clean Both Homes and Businesses

Homeowners as well as business owners are turning to SERVPRO for proactive cleaning for the coronavirus and other pathogens. Whether you want to make sure that your building is free from contamination or you have a suspected contamination, rely on SERVPRO to restore your peace of mind, health and safety.

When a family member has tested positive for Covid-19, proactive cleaning by SERVPRO can reduce the risk of exposure for other residents of the home.

With a call to SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield, you will make it clear that your business is doing all it can to protect the health of your customers and the public.

SERVPRO: Your Weapon Against MRSA

12/19/2019 (Permalink)

MRSA bacteria seen through a microscope Stay healthy! MRSA is one of the biohazards that SERVPRO cleans and sanitizes at homes and businesses.

SERVPRO is known for its quick and thorough disaster remediation of fire, water, storm, mold and other damage at homes and businesses throughout the U.S. But you may not know that SERVPRO can protect people from dangerous and sometimes fatal MRSA infections! Because our professionals are trained to safely handle the worst biohazards, they know how to sanitize facilities to remove all traces of MRSA and other germs.

What Is MRSA?

MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Staphylococcus aureus, or staph, is a common strain of bacteria, which can cause infections in the bloodstream, lungs, bones or soft tissues. Staph is typically curable with antibiotics, but some staph strains have become resistant to our most effective antibiotics—including methicillin—and are now much more difficult to eradicate. Usually, these MRSA infections take root in already-ill persons who are in hospitals and long-term care facilities.

Another type of MRSA is often called a “superbug,” because it causes drug-resistant infections in previously healthy people. This type of infection is referred to as CA-MRSA, or community-acquired MRSA, and it usually manifests as a skin infection. You may have heard of CA-MRSA outbreaks affecting healthy adults and children in schools, gyms, locker rooms, prisons and other public buildings.

To prevent a MRSA infection, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advises:

  • Keep wounds covered
  • Practice good basic hygiene
  • Do not share personal items, such as towels or razors
  • Launder soiled clothing
  • Clean surfaces that people may contact

How SERVPRO Fights MRSA and Other Biohazards

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield is trained to safely remove biohazards and dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and health regulations. We have the necessary safety equipment, cleaning products and established procedures to transform unhealthy environments back into clean, safe homes and offices.

In the case of an active MRSA outbreak, our crews arrive ready to clean and sanitize building materials, surfaces and all contents to eradicate the bacteria. Because we stand ready around the clock to respond quickly to any disaster, a call to SERVPRO will reduce the time your facility will have to be closed, minimizing your loss of money and reputation.

Help Prevent a MRSA Outbreak at Your Commercial Property

Many commercial facilities at risk of a MRSA outbreak—such as schools, medical facilities, long-term care facilities, gyms, etc.—proactively contract with SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for regular cleaning services. With SERVPRO’s crews at your facility, thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing all surfaces on a regular basis, you will reduce your chances of experiencing an outbreak of MRSA or other infectious disease—and you’ll safeguard the health of your employees and customers.

Earlier in 2019, SERVPRO rolled out a new digital inventory system that tracks your possessions while we clean and store them and repair your home. We know at a glance the location of your items as well as their status: being cleaned or in storage.

A Secure Process, End to End

SERVPRO cares for 100% of your possessions. The process starts at your home, where our project manager evaluates each item to determine the necessary treatment. While you watch, we photograph each item, then secure your furniture in blankets and fragile items in bubble wrap. Then we wrap everything in plastic, label it with your name and unique QR-code. Smaller personal items are boxed, photographed, sealed and labeled.

Once all is packed, you review and sign off on a tracking form that lists all the items with photos. Further on in the process, this list can form the basis of your insurance claim. We then load your wrapped possessions into storage containers or vaults (also labeled and QR-coded) and transport everything to our storage and operations facility in Bloomfield. Constructed in 2015, it is one of the largest SERVPRO warehouses in the nation.

With a scan, SERVPRO staff can immediately tell if a particular item needs cleaning, is being or has been cleaned (and when) or is waiting in a secure storage container. We entrust certain items, like smoke-damaged clothing, or unique possessions, like pianos or pool tables, to our network of reliable specialty cleaners. When a homeowner needs to retrieve items before the restoration is completed—documents for insurance claims or the contents of a kitchen, for example—we can quickly locate the items in our inventory system.

An Unbroken Chain of Custody

Once all items have been returned to your home, you review and sign off on the original tracking form to ensure that all your items are present, clean and in good condition. Thanks to our proven procedures and bolstered by our digital inventory system, we ensure an unbroken chain of custody while your possessions are in our care.

When your home and possessions have been damaged by a wind, water or fire event, nothing is more important than restoring everything “Like it never even happened.” Depend on SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield to care for your possessions with the highest security and care!

Crews from three SERVPRO franchises responded to this scene in 2018 and handled most of the cleanup. Photo credit: Mikaela Porter / Hartford Courant

Raw sewage floating down the street ... five feet of water in basements ... more than 20 homes flooded. What a disaster! Fast, professional remediation is needed and soon!

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield recently partnered with two other nearby SERVPRO franchises (owned by the same management team) to successfully tackle a water disaster that numerous other disaster remediation companies couldn’t handle. On October 3, 2018 water and sewer lines in West Hartford, Connecticut were being replaced when a 60-foot-long section of new pipe liner collapsed after a rainstorm. The resulting blockage forced waste water to gush into the street. Before long, the basements of almost two dozen homes in the neighborhood were flooded and four families were displaced.

Call in the SERVPRO Cavalry!

The first SERVPRO teams to arrive found a nasty scene: the street and many driveways were flooded with dark, foul water and multiple homes were inundated with the reeking biohazard. The crews went into action, pumping out basements, drying out structures and property and removing damaged items.

When you need disaster remediation—big or small—at your home or business, SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield today at 860.633.8791

All three SERVPRO franchises owned by Ralph and Noemi DiCristofaro (SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield and SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield) sent crews and equipment to tackle this extraordinary and rapidly-worsening disaster. Together, these franchises own thousands of pieces of equipment and scores of vehicles, and employ more than a hundred professionals. Those resources of equipment and manpower allow us to respond rapidly to disasters of just about any size and type.

Biohazard Cleanup Pros to the Rescue

One key to our success on the West Hartford sewage disaster was our expertise in biohazard cleanup. All our crews are up to date in OSHA training and state health regulations. They were ready for even the toughest job!

Although other disaster remediation companies were called to the scene, each one dropped out of the project after initial work—they couldn’t keep up with the amount and difficulty of the remediation efforts needed.

In the end, SERVPRO cleaned the majority of the affected houses, drying and disinfecting structures and property. On this incredibly challenging and urgent disaster, SERVPRO safely and promptly restored homes, property and lives.
