COVID-19 or coronavirus is the new hot topic at the moment. Everyone is talking and panicking about it. Many people are suffering from it and others are doing everything they can to avoid getting this disease. Out of those who are suffering, many have recovered and are still recovering but a lot of people have died and further are dying from the severity of this virus.
The world is in panic, going through a lockdown and the only safe place at this time is your own house. Many businesses have been shut down from the time being but the ones necessary for our survival are still running. People are practicing social distancing to prevent the spread and cleaning their places more thoroughly and regularly.
If you are staying at home, you need to make sure that your house is completely clean and germs free. You have to use proper cleaning and disinfecting chemicals that are approved and registered by the EPA.
The disinfectants that the EPA has registered till now, to use against SARS-CoV-2 include hydrogen peroxide, quaternary ammonium, sodium hypochlorite, chlorine dioxide, citric acid, ethanol, isopropanol and dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid. The list would be updated again when more chemicals are found effective.
So, if you want to avoid getting the virus, you should properly clean and disinfect your house and the frequently touched surfaces of appliances and furniture with the right disinfectants.
The compounds containing quaternary ammonium are not effective against the spores of bacteria and in the pharmaceutical industry, they are most commonly used in the non-oxidizing disinfectants.
At this time of chaos, there is much increasing demand is of the personal protective equipment (PPE) which include the safe suits, face masks, hand gloves and others. So, their manufacturers are working a lot to provide people and especially the health care workers with all these equipments so that there is no shortage.
The people working in such manufacturing companies are not staying at home and hence they are also at the risk of getting infected just like the health care workers who are risking their own lives to save the lives of many others.
If you are working in such a profession, you need to take extra precautions for your own safety and that of the people working around you.
And if you have any suspicion or you are sure that your workplace has been contaminated with the coronavirus, you should contact the covid business cleanup and decontamination as soon as possible. Because it is better to be safe than sorry. You should know that any carelessness can cost you and others, your lives. So, don’t take this lightly and call the disinfecting service providers for the decontamination of your work building, like the service restoration.
They have a team of trained and experienced workers who know what protocol to follow for this purpose. The disinfectants they use are the ones registered from the EPA and USDA. Their workers are certified by the IICRC and they would respond you immediately.
