We’re Here for You in a Time of Crisis
As a corporation, SERVPRO is in a unique position to perform these essential services at a time of urgent need. In just about any disaster situation, the team at SERVPRO of Southwest Brooklyn is prepared to offer—the expertise, training, equipment and personnel to quickly clean up and restore your home or business.
About the Coronavirus and Covid-19
The coronavirus is believed to spread primarily through personal contact, between people who are within about six feet of one another, through airborne respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may also be possible to catch the virus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.
“Social distancing” has become the new watchword and the key to slowing the pandemic. In this rapidly changing situation, Americans are experiencing unprecedented canceling of events and widespread closings of schools, restaurants and workplaces. Along with avoiding large crowds and keeping a six-foot distance from others, the most common advice from experts is to wash hands frequently and avoid touching faces.
Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) website for the latest and most accurate information on the coronavirus and Covid-19. Because this outbreak is unfolding rapidly and unpredictably, we at SERVPRO encourage you to check back with the CDC frequently for updates.
The Importance of Proactive Cleaning
According to the CDC, “Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.”
Today, when the need is most urgent, SERVPRO of Southwest Brooklyn is prepared—right now—to clean, sanitize and disinfect your home or business to eradicate traces of coronavirus or other pathogens.
Whether you have no indication of existing contamination, or you are aware that your structure may have been contaminated with coronavirus, SERVPRO’s crews stand ready to provide increased assurance that you, your family, your customers and your employees will not be exposed to coronavirus within your building.
Many types of businesses can benefit from SERVPRO’s proactive cleaning, which targets the coronavirus and other pathogens:
• Restaurants and bars
• Retail stores
• Offices, especially medical offices
• Nursing homes, senior centers and rehabilitation facilities
• Hotels, B&Bs and other hospitality sites
• Theaters and entertainment venues
• Apartment buildings
• Factories and warehouses
Please be aware, however, that while SERVPRO’s cleaning process can remove existing viral pathogens, including the coronavirus, structures we clean proactively will not be protected from future coronavirus contamination if an infected person subsequently enters the building.
