Employee wearing a Tyvek suit Employee wearing PPE during a COVID 19 Cleaning

Florida businesses have been  reopened for a few years now since the Coronavirus hit. There are some cases that the virus does impact a business still to this day. We are happy to offer COVID-19 related cleaning. To date, we have already carried out a number of cleanings for many members of our Lake County community. We can provide estimates for proactive, suspected, and confirmed cleanings. Treatment involves fogging the area(s) with an EPA registered water-based disinfectant then wiping down touch points. This product is a hospital grade disinfectant and falls into the lowest toxicity category. It is also NSF certified for direct food contact surface use. If desired, we are happy to provide a safety data sheet.

Sewage that overflowed the toilet Flooding and Contaminated Sewage

Cat 1 would involve sanitary water, a Cat 2 would be significantly contaminated, and a Cat 3 would be grossly contaminated. This is important because it affects work activities and protective measures that are needed for each job. It is important for our technicians, when working these jobs, to protect themselves by wearing the following PPE (Personal Protective Equipment): Full face respirator with combination HEPA particulate/organic vapor filters, a full body suit, nitrile gloves, heavy-duty work gloves and waterproof boots.

On this particular Cat 3 job, a building under construction experienced a sewage loss in one of the restrooms, which resulted in most of the floor throughout the wing being affected. We were contacted by the customer and were able to respond immediately to begin the work process. In this case, we performed a water extraction, decontaminated affected areas with an antimicrobial multiple times, removed flooring and drywall, placed several air scrubbers and dehumidifiers to aid in the drying process, and HEPA vacuumed all affected areas.

Upon completion of services our customer was thrilled to be able to resume construction on the building and appreciative that our highly trained and certified crew made such a massive, gross debacle “Like it never even happened.”
