What Does it Mean to be Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned?
Butter blocks cholesterol. Pet food extends dogs’ lifespan. Vitamins prevent the flu. Shoes help you lose weight. Just because a company claims something in its marketing, it doesn’t make it true. This also applies to companies offering cleaning services to mitigate viral pathogens without the expertise to back it up.
“There are a lot more people doing ‘COVID cleaning’ now who have no experience with infectious disease control and are not qualified to be doing this service,” said Jason Sadler, mitigation estimating manager for SERVPRO of Northwest Charlotte. “They're just doing it because there’s not much work for them right now and they need to make money somehow.”
Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned
While Charlotte and surrounding communities start to get back to business, many people are still hesitant about gathering in brick-and-mortar locations such as restaurants, businesses and public spaces.
Since the pandemic hit, there’s a new sense of what it means to be ‘clean.’ It’s not just standard janitorial, carpet or surface cleaning, it’s about proactive and defensive viral pathogen cleaning for commercial locations.
“SERVPRO has 50-plus years of experience in biohazard decontamination and biochemical spill remediation,” Sadler said, “So when we say we offer a professional COVID cleaning service, our team has the training and experience to ensure a higher standard of clean.”
Advanced viral pathogen cleaning program
Because each business and brick-and-mortar facility is unique, the SERVPRO team consults with customers to tailor a commercial cleaning program around their needs. For example, the COVID cleaning needed at a burger restaurant may differ from an insurance office.
Once a plan is established, SERVPRO’s deep clean experts - armed with air scrubbers, thermal foggers and proprietary EPA-approved hospital-grade solutions - go in and clean and decontaminate following standards set by local authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
COVID cleaning across the country
SERVPRO of Northwest Charlotte is part of a national network of 1,700-plus franchises. While we’re locally owned and operated and part of the Mecklenburg, Lincoln and Gaston communities, our company also has national accounts spanning the country. Some of our large commercial clients have hundreds if not thousands of buildings in dozens of states.
“These clients have vetted us to perform the same consistent services we’re performing locally for their other locations all over the country because they know they can make a phone call to one person who's going to pick up every time and take care of them,” Sadler said.
“When you see the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned shield posted on a window or the home page of a business website, you can walk in knowing that business has committed to a higher and safer standard of clean and the facility was cleaned properly by a professional commercial cleaning company.”
