Infectious Disease Cleanup
The Types of Infectious Diseases We Decontaminate.
While the COVID-19 strain of coronavirus is the current ongoing danger, it’s not the only infectious disease. In 2016 the CDC reported more than 16 million medical visits for infectious disease. Contamination can include but is not limited to the following conditions caused by airborne and bloodborne pathogens such as:
- Swine Flu (H1N1)
- Bird Flu
- Clostridium difficile (C-diff)
- Candida Auris
Many of these viruses can be transmitted through food, liquids, body fluids, contaminated objects, or airborne inhalation. Therefore, it’s necessary to find an infectious disease cleanup company that understands all the possible contaminants and offers deep cleaning services for infectious diseases in a safe and effective way. ONEighty Solutions is prepared in removing airborne and bloodborne pathogens and ready to handle any cleanup that your business may need.
Virus Cleanup for Offices, Hospitals, Hotels, Restaurants, Malls, ETC
If a family member, co-worker, or anyone else you have been in contact with has been diagnosed with an infectious disease or shows symptoms, it’s imperative that the space they have been inhabiting is contained and decontaminated. Anything that’s been touched or used by the infected person can be contaminated and many times pathogens may be airborne for an extended period.
Surfaces, personal items and even air systems such as HVAC units and air ducts need to be properly decontaminated by a infectious disease company. It’s important that the company is licensed and experienced to conduct such work for hotels and restaurants, malls, stadiums, locker rooms, schools, office buildings, hospitals, nursing homes, and more. To do otherwise puts anyone exposed to the environment at risk of contracting the infectious disease. That is why it’s important to call ONEighty Solutions for infectious disease cleanup services immediately with any suspicions that your business or residence may be contaminated.
Dangers of an Infectious Disease Outbreak
The health hazards created by the outbreak of an infectious disease such as coronavirus, Swine Flu, H1N1, MRSA, or C. diff can be shocking. This can result from several methods beyond physical contact with infected individuals – they can also be transmitted through liquids, food, body fluids, contaminated objects or airborne inhalation. Therefore, it’s necessary to find an infectious disease cleaning company who understands all the possible contaminates and offers safe and effective cleaning services.
Difference Between Cleanings, Disinfecting, and Sanitizing.
Most people don’t fully appreciate the differences between the terms cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing. Each of these words have unique meanings, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
-Cleaning removes dirt, debris, and some germs from surfaces and objects. However, it does not kill the germs.
-Disinfecting reduces germs on surfaces and objects, which does eliminate some of the danger of infection, but again doesn’t kill germs.
-Sanitizing destroys germs on surfaces and objects, ensuring that they are safe from infectious pathogens.
When it comes to fighting infectious diseases the main focus is trying to reduce these bacteria and viruses. Thus, sanitization is the ultimate remedy for an infectious disease outbreak, and is the focus of our course of action as professional infectious disease cleanup specialists.
