Why You Should Consider Coronavirus Cleaning & Disinfecting for Your Property
The purpose of this cleaning is to safely remove any biological material from your property, sanitize surfaces and microbial fog the affected area to make the property safe again. This takes more than traditional cleaning supplies. Because our techs are exposed to potentially infectious materials, they receive extensive training, wear protective gear, and use specialized equipment that meets strict health and safety guidelines.
What causes a coronavirus infection?
Humans first get a coronavirus from contact with animals. Then, it can spread from human to human. Health officials do not know what animal caused COVID-19.
