COVID-19 Coronavirus Remediation
Georgia Clean and Associates has been performing Infectious Disease Management as one of its business practices since the SARS breakout in 2004. Since SARS, we have been proactively prepared for:
- SARS 2004
- AVIAN 2008
- Swine 2010
- MERS 2012
- EBOLA 2014
- ZIKA 2016
- EBOLAS 2018
- And now Coronavirus / COVID-19
Infectious Disease Management is part of our wheelhouse, and we do understand what it takes to create a safe environment.
What can I do to be proactive for my facility?
We have had numerous property management firms, county and cities as well as private businesses sending in their vendor packages to have contracts or PO’s ready for emergency services. This is the best first step to take. Then you will have all of our information in your hands as well as current Certificates of Insurance.
Should I need services, what should I expect?
We operate in discrete unmarked vehicles. Georgia Clean also works on a signed Confidentiality Agreement, so you can be assured that your facility it not seen on social media.
Electrostatic spraying and why it’s important
We use an electrostatic spraying system. This is a highly effective, comprehensive approach to disinfection because of the way it seeks out nooks and crannies on its own and provides complete coverage. A simplistic explanation of electrostatic spraying and the way it works it this:
If you use a regular sprayer on an apple, it only covers the side you are spraying. If you use an electrostatic sprayer, the negative charge seeks out the positive surface encompassing the apple without moving the prayer. Using an electrostatic sprayer to disinfectant provides complete coverage on and around objects and in tight places.
Here is a video that provides more scientific explanation of what an electrostatic sprayer is and how it works.
How do you charge?
Our services for treatment are by the cubic foot. We also address all hot touch surfaces. Hot touch surfaces are those surfaces most touched by human hands that leave a biofilm. A biofilm is a thin, slimy film of bacteria that adheres to a surface from touch or contact. We also bill by the man hour and the cost of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) used by our technicians as they perform services.
What all can you treat?
Here are some examples of what we can treat:
- Residential Buildings
- Commercial Buildings
- EMS Vehicles
- Private Vehicles
- Government Facilities
Only hire infectious disease experts
Some of these new companies are charging thousands of dollars for a service that is neither proven effective nor useful. If you, an employee, or a family member do have a positive case of COVID-19, make sure the company you hire to clean and disinfect the space has proven experience in infectious disease cleanup, are licensed, bonded, and insured, and have all the necessary paperwork and documentation to back it up.

About the Coronavirus – COVID-19
One of the best tools to prevent the spread of the coronavirus is the quality cleaning of commonly touched surfaces. If you are dealing with an outbreak of the virus or are taking preventative measures, we at Georgia Clean are here for you to quickly decontaminate and sanitize the entire area with fast and effective coronavirus disinfection at your Georgia school, business, or home.
What is the coronavirus?
This specific coronavirus, COVID-19, is part of the family of viruses that can also cause the common flu or cold. Each coronavirus is different and causes different diseases. COVID-19 is one of the rarer ones that started with infecting animals and made the jump to infecting humans as well. Though we don’t know exactly where it began, we do know it started in China and has spread around the world from there. Scientists are currently studying the virus to learn how to combat it.
How do I know if I have the coronavirus?
COVID-19 has many similar symptoms to allergies, the flu, and a cold so it can be hard to tell exactly what you have. In most cases, COVID-19 starts with a high fever and is accompanied by a sore throat and dry-cough. While a runny nose is a symptom, it is a rare occurrence among COVID-19 patients. At this point, official tests of the virus are limited so there are a number of people in self-quarantine just in case.
If you think you may have the virus or have been in touch with someone who has it, the best thing to do is to simply stay home and call your doctor while monitoring and treating any symptoms. Do not go out and have anything you need delivered to your door. Remember, too, that while your symptoms may not be severe, you can still pass it on to someone whose health is under greater threat.
How is the coronavirus spread?
Covid-19 is spread when someone infected with the virus touches surfaces with infected hands or coughs or sneezes and the virus travels to surrounding surfaces through moisture droplets. Once contaminated, there are many differing medical options about how long the virus can remain active on solid surfaces (doorknobs, door frames, remotes, light switches, tables, desks) but the majority of them validate they can remain active from three to nine days. As it takes two to fourteen days for someone to show symptoms after being infected, if they have any symptoms at all, the virus can be spread without people realizing it. It is for this reason it’s important to continually clean high touch surfaces in your home, your office and public places and to wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
What if someone with coronavirus has been on my property?
With such a dangerous virus easily spread from one person to another, it is one thing to keep commonly touched surfaces disinfected with sanitary wipes and regular household disinfectants as preventative care and quite another to have a whole business or school infected and need a fast and thorough cleaning.
If someone infected with the coronavirus has been on your Georgia property, especially in a school or business where a lot of people come and go, every suspected surface needs to be thoroughly and professionally cleaned and disinfected. Based on what we know thus far, the virus may stay active on a surface for up to 9 days and thus it needs to be disinfected before others are allowed back in the impacted areas. Whether one infected person has been in your property or several people have become sick, Georgia Clean is here to help clean and disinfect the area.
