READY TO RESPOND


Critical for preparation is informing our facility directors and municipalities leaders proper response in the event their facilities incur a bio-hazard contaminating event. There is no shortage of information available regarding the coronavirus. The abundance of information is overwhelming and often contributes to stagnation and more confusion. With so many opinions provided by the media and industry experts, turn to us for the answers. As a COVID-19 coronavirus cleaning company, we will help you develop a strategy of response.

Hire a COVID Virus Cleaning Contractor


The best way to decontaminate your facility in the event of a coronavirus exposure or outbreak is to hire a professional, reputable COVID-19 coronavirus cleaning and restoration company like A.S.D.T. Any reputable contractor will require a Protocol and/or Scope of Work to begin decontamination or remediation in the event a facility requires biohazard cleaning services. Protocol and Scope of Work are often used interchangeably, and may have slightly different cross-industry meanings (contractors, legal experts, environmental consultants, compliance officials, etc.)

An informal explanation:


Scope of Work is an agreed document on the work a contractor will perform. The SOW should contain any milestones, reports, deliverables, and end products that are expected to be provided by the performing party. The SOW should also contain a time line for all deliverables.


Protocol generally determines how the Scope of Work is to be performed. Thus, the Scope of Work details “what” should be done and Protocol details “how” it should be done. The protocol details types of decontamination procedures and techniques that are acceptable. It also contains specifics like the products or chemicals selected for use. Most often, an environmental consultant, industrial hygienist, or licensed laboratory assembles the protocol. Ideally, under most circumstances, the assembly of the protocol should be created by a third party.


A.S.D.T. synergizes with the best experts in the industry to produce Protocol.

Site-Specific Protocol & Scope of Work


A Protocol and Scope of Work should be individual per facility. All facilities have unique features that must be addressed in a particular manner. In other words, decontaminating a hospital is different than decontaminating a school. Further, no two schools are identical, and some schools may require additional measures. Decontaminating all facilities in the same manner leads to quality control deficiencies and inefficiency of resources.


Every facility has a unique set of decontamination demands. Developing a Site-Specific Scope is Critical.

Hygienist Requirements and Testing


As mentioned previously, using an environmental consultant, hygienist, or qualified party to create a site-specific Protocol is preferred. Through environmental monitoring and analytical methods, they set the standard for quality required in decontaminating a facility and test for effectiveness following the performed Scope of Work. Testing for COVID-19 can be done through surface sampling and air sampling.


Let us bring our top experts to the table.

Disinfectant and Chemical Selection


There are many products available to neutralize COVID-19. A product is not viable for use unless it is EPA registered, meaning that product has been proven by a third party for claims of effectiveness. Products used against COVID-19 should be “hospital grade,” as per the EPA. Check the EPA website, instead of trusting hearsay. Recall Hurricane Katrina, in which, it was broadcasted to the masses that bleach kills mold (bleach does not kill mold.)

Considerations for disinfectant selection:

Efficacy against COVID-19


Is this disinfectant registered with the EPA?

Corrosiveness


Will this disinfectant damage electronics and finishes within the facility?

Safety Hazard


What are the PPE Requirements using this disinfectant?

Containment


Will the facility need to be vacant when using this disinfectant?

Some disinfectants are corrosive and can damage electronics if improperly used, or even properly used. Disinfectants that are corrosive or toxic require special protective equipment for applicators. The protective equipment is not only determined by disinfectant choice, but also the delivery system (wet fogging, misting, spraying, etc.) The different applications produce different OSHA related concerns for applicator safety. Some disinfectants may require a facility to be vacant during application and for a period of time after application.

We match our clients with the best disinfectant for their facility.

Contractor Qualifications


Compliance with OSHA, FDA, and EPA regulation is critical for contractors who are responding to COVID-19 bio-hazard decontamination.

Contractor qualifications may include:

OSHA 30


  • Baseline OSHA training to establish general worksite safety

HAZWOPER 40


  • OSHA's Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standards


  • Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA)
  • Critical in Healthcare

Special Licensing


  • State specific licensing

Our team remains ready to respond to a viral outbreak event.

Facility Decontamination Options

1) Preventative (Low Risk)


  • We guide you through a basic risk mitigating decontamination plan.

  • We train your in-house staff and provide “infrastructure on demand,” as needed to include: qualified people, equipment, and products.

  • Under this phase, the products used are deemed safe without full PPE.

  • The end result is a facility best prepared for a bio-hazard event, thus the time and cost for an intensive remediation is reduced if your facility incurs contamination.

2) Reactive (Moderate Risk)


  • Intended for a facility that is known to have been likely exposed to COVID-19

  • Full PPE is required and Advanced Structural Drying Technologies personnel will be used only

  • A hygienist or environmental engineer may be required

  • Containment may be required based on chemical demand

3) Responsive (High Risk)


  • Intended for a facility that is contaminated with COVID-19

  • Full PPE is required and Advanced Structural Drying Technologies personnel will be used only

  • A hygienist or environmental engineer is required to create a Protocol & Scope of Work

  • Testing will likely be required

  • Containment will be required at minimum in select areas.

Healthcare Facility Services


During scheduled maintenance or emergency response, consistent awareness of the facility indoor air quality is a first priority. Hospitals and healthcare facilities require a different standard of care and control measures compared to other facilities. We adhere to ICRA standards for controlling airborne particulate through work practices designed with safety and considerations of the patients.
