Know How it Spreads

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Take steps to protect yourself

Clean your hands often
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact

Take steps to protect others

Stay home if you’re sick
Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Wear a facemask if you are sick
  • If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.
  • If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
Clean and disinfect
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

 

To disinfect:
Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work. Use disinfectants appropriate for the surface.

Options include:

  • Diluting your household bleach.
    To make a bleach solution, mix:

    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water
      OR
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water

    Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.

  • Alcohol solutions.
    Ensure solution has at least 70% alcohol.
  • Other common EPA-registered household disinfectants.
    Products with EPA-approved claims are expected to be effective against COVID-19 based on data for harder to kill viruses. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method and contact time, etc.).

Here’s what you need to know about hiring a Professional Service Company for residential or commercial spaces:

  1. Advanced Bio-Treatment uses a hands-free, hydrogen peroxide based EPA solution that is colorless, odorless and residue-free
  2. The technology Advanced Bio-Treatment uses is from a manufacturer that was granted approval by the CDC in January 2020 to send over 150+ machines and solution to combat COVID-19 in China.
  3. CHOOSE A COMPANY THAT SPECIALIZES IN DISINFECTION SERVICES LIKE ADVANCED BIO-TREATMENT, not a company that’s looking to make a quick buck.

  5. Advanced Bio-Treatment stands by their service.  We provide a Certificate of Disinfection to prove we stand behind our service.

Health Hazards of an Infectious Disease Outbreak

The health hazards posed by an outbreak of an infectious disease such as Swine Flu, H1N1, MRSA, or C. diff is startling. Transmissions of an infectious disease can result from a number of methods beyond physical contact with infected individuals. Infectious diseases are the result of pathogenic microbial agents which can also be transmitted through liquids, food, body fluids, contaminated objects or airborne inhalation.

ABT’s Infectious Disease Cleanup Goes Beyond Surface Cleaning

From a health risk perspective, it is essential to go beyond surface cleaning. To significantly reduce the threat of  an infectious disease, a professional scene cleaning service should be used to ensure proper decontamination. Advanced Bio-Treatment understands the risks of infectious diseases such as Bird Flu, Swine Flu, MRSA, C. diff and staph infection and has the training to properly eliminate them.

We can cleanup any infectious disease outbreak, whether commercial or residential.
