With the spread of COVID-19 and the continuing impact domestically, we at Restoration King will be working hard to gather and share information so our customers have access to potential solutions. Right now, as you have probably experienced yourself, there is a shortage on a lot of supplies. We are working diligently with our vendors to maintain stock levels on applicable products.
Due to the high volume of requests from our customers, we have assembled & summarized publicly available information from health agencies regarding COVID-19 to clarify some things we are all no doubt seeing. During these uncertain times we are committed to providing services to help our community. Although, we agree that everyone should follow the guidelines of the US Centers for Disease Control and CDC, we still want to provide relevant information to our customers and community.
The Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is so new that at this time there are no government-registered disinfectant products that have been tested and proven against COVID-19 specifically because this pathogen is not available for testing and standard laboratory tests do not yet exist. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CDC have stated that if antimicrobial products can kill a small, relatively undeveloped virus, it should be effective against the enveloped virus.
Restoration King Has Services That Can Help Reduce Harmful Bacteria and Viruses that lurk throughout your home. Your air ducts for example can be thoroughly cleaned. Not only can this help reduce allergens, bacteria and viruses circulating in your vents, but it can also add years of life to your home’s heating and cooling systems, along with reduced energy costs.
Helping You Combat the Coronavirus
So, if no disinfectant company will make a claim on their EPA-registered label that the product is proven effective for killing COVID-19, what can you do? It is recommended at this time by the CDC to have routine cleaning and disinfecting procedures in place. ICP ERG disinfectants meet Emerging Pathogen efficacy requirements and are approved for multiple Small Non-Enveloped, Large Non-Enveloped, and Enveloped Viruses based on their labels.
The virus can live on surfaces for hours and possibly days, some are even speculating it can last longer depending on temperature and humidity. The EPA has stated “Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning they are one of the easiest to kill [on surfaces] with the appropriate disinfectant product.”
Using the most current information on what products might be most effective against coronavirus, we can help you by keeping your ducts as virus free as possible and offering disinfecting services with our plant based all-natural EPA approved virus eradicator.
Ensuring that as many surfaces in your office and home are clear of any potential contaminates is probably going to be the best way to keep yourself, family, and staff safe in the coming weeks and possibly even months. Taking care of areas where a virus might hide, like your ducts can provide added safety and peace of mind.
We hope this information was helpful to you. As always, feel free to reach out to us for more information about how we can help with disinfecting supplies.
