Why SERVPRO Milton/Braintree Should Disinfect

If you are responsible for the cleaning and disinfecting activities of a facility, you need to understand disinfection. Without a basic understanding of the principles of disinfection, there is a greater chance of illness and perhaps life-threatening diseases such as Covid-19 to spread. The primary use of disinfectants is to eliminate or greatly reduce microbial pathogens and thus prevent the transmission of diseases and illnesses. 

The appropriate personnel protective equipment (PPE) should always be used when dealing with contaminated surfaces during cleaning and disinfecting procedures.The PPE is designed to protect the user from airborne particulates or any other hazardous materials.  Surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned before being disinfected because dirt, blood, mucous and tissue may interfere with the action of the disinfectant. After the cleaning and disinfection of the designated area, the appropriate PPE must be properly disposed of to prevent cross contamination. This includes regularly changing gloves, disinfecting face masks, and throwing out the white suits. 

At SERVPRO Milton/Braintree we only use products approved by the CDC and pride ourselves in the use of the necessary protective gear to get the job done right.
