REOPENING YOUR BUSINESS

As businesses are reopening or preparing to reopen, it is important to correctly clean and disinfect 'high touch' commercial spaces. The threat of COVID-19 is still present and to reduce the risk of further spread, businesses need to take steps to disinfect their property. The type of disinfecting needed is a higher level than your standard day to day cleaning. Disinfecting is vital to protect your employees and clients.  No building is too small or too large for these services. Our Large Loss team, at SERVPRO of NE San Jose specializes in disasters such as the Coronavirus Pandemic. Our technicians are trained in Biohazard cleanup, Blood-born pathogens, and maintain current IICRC certification. Additionally, our technicians are fully trained in proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Reopening cleaning / disinfecting may include a wide range of services depending on the needs of the business. These services include the use of EPA certified disinfectants approved for COVID-19 cleanup and sanitization. Disinfecting of all touchable areas in your building will include but not be limited to: walls, floors, doors, door handles, light switches, windows, tables, table tops, chairs, sinks, cabinets, filing cabinets, computer key boards and mouse, phones, printers, lunch rooms, bathroom stalls and machinery. Our technicians follow all OSHA regulations, as well as guidance from the CDC.

SERVPRO technicians are capable of assisting many different types of businesses with our services. We can effectively disinfect offices, salons, and small stores, as well as large manufacturing facilities, warehouses, restaurants, and schools. 


Preventive Vs. Reactive
Preventive disinfecting is a service made for businesses that have not experienced a positive or suspected COVID-19. Preventive cleaning still disinfects all touchable surfaces to treat any possible viruses that may be in your facility. Reactive cleaning, is a disinfectant service after a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19. This disinfecting requires the use of several types of services. IF the business requires a reactive disinfectant cleaning, please call immediately, a protocol needs to be turned around quickly in order to reduce further contamination as well as spread of the virus.

By using electrostatic fogging technology, SERVPRO technicians can cover a relatively large area in a short period of time. This process allows for the use of liquid disinfectant in a non damaging manner to paper or fabrics. The fogging turns liquid disinfectant into a fine mist that lands on all surfaces and then dissipates after a period of dry time. The fine mist allows technicians to disinfect areas faster, the service can be more cost effective than using the pump sprayer technique.
