In the battle against the coronavirus, people across the nation are stepping up to do their part, converting production facilities to the manufacture of Personal Protective Equipment, providing delivery services to ensure social distancing, and more.

In this fight, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that could harbor the potentially deadly contagion is more vital than ever.  One local company that has answered the call to arms against our unseen enemy is SERVPRO®️ of Blackfoot / Pocatello (SERVPRO®️).

To keep our first responders safe, SERVPRO®️ Professional Technicians have established a schedule and begun providing complimentary cleaning for first responder vehicles to the high standards recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  They recently cleaned the ambulances in Blackfoot, and are working to also clean the fire engines, ambulances, and police department vehicles in Pocatello.

SERVPRO®️ wants the residential and business community to know that they are available 24/7/365.  Heather Richards, Marketing Manager for SERVPRO®️ Blackfoot/Pocatello, said, “We are prepared to clean and disinfect your home or business, according to protocols set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  We have years of experience in dealing with biological contaminants, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform on a daily basis.”

The CDC encourages cleaning of high-touch surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets and tables. Other spaces mentioned in the CDC’s guidance for commercial spaces include:

  • Kitchen/Food Areas

Richards continued, “The CDC recommends usage of a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant with claims against similar pathogens to the coronavirus.  Multiple products in the SERVPRO product line carry the EPA-approved emerging pathogens claims.  While there is currently no product tested against this particular strain of the coronavirus, we are following all guidelines as provided by the CDC and local authorities.”

If your home or business needs deep cleaning services, call the experts today – [SERVPRO of Blackfoot/POCATELLO (208) 242-3819.
