Chicago Area Professional Cleanup to Slow Viral Spread

How are you managing the opportunity to deep clean your Chicago business during the “stay at home” directive in Illinois? Need help? Your local SERVPRO is available to assess your commercial space and develop a plan to clean and apply an appropriate disinfectant treatment.

SERVPRO Helps Businesses Slow Viral Spread

Whether your staff is working on location, from home, or temporarily idled until officials okay a return to standard on-site work, we can plan a project to proactively clean your offices, retail areas, storage, or any other spaces. SERVPRO follows directives from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and uses products registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to clean and apply disinfectants.

According to a collaborative study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), CDC and Princeton University published in The New England Journal of Medicine, the current virus causing the pandemic is stable for several hours to several days on surfaces and in aerosols. Scientists say viral pathogens are detectable:

  • In aerosols (airborne) up to three hours
  • On copper up to four hours
  • On cardboard up to 24 hours
  • On stainless steel and plastic up to two or three days

Get ahead of potential contamination of surfaces by calling our team at SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville at (312) 509-5000. We stand to help ready 24/7.
