It’s hard to remember what the city of Palo Alto was like before COVID-19. Like many California communities, this community was shaken by the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic. Now, the community’s web site is cloaked by a graphic blue banner that reads, “SPREAD KINDNESS, NOT THE VIRUS. WEAR A FACE COVERING.”
While it is true that we can reduce the number of virus cases by wearing face coverings and practicing good hygiene, we must also have contingency plans in place for times when the coronavirus enters our community.
Eco Bear cleaning specialists work closely with Palo Alto businesses, churches, schools, and property owners to execute comprehensive COVID-19 remediation services. Our virus containment and prevention strategies are the best in the industry. We work hard to eradicate the pathogens that cause the COVID-19 virus.
What Is Eco Bear?
Eco Bear provides cleanup services for challenging situations, our services include but are certainly not limited to infectious disease disinfection.
As a woman-owned, veteran-led business, Eco Bear is connected to the communities we serve. The company’s husband and wife co-owners, Raymond Magno and Emily Kil are proud to serve their neighbors during the coronavirus pandemic. Their excellence, compassion, and dedication is shared by every member of their team.
Every member of the cleaning and disinfection team has extensive training and experience in biohazard remediation. All team members are also fully insured and bonded. Not to mention, they come equipped with the most advanced disinfection agents, PPE, and cleaning tools in the industry.
How Can We Help?
First, let’s go over what we know about the novel coronavirus:
Before you attempt to answer that question, take a look at some of the facts:
- The novel coronavirus can live on inanimate surfaces for as long as many as 17 days.
- Airborne coronavirus pathogens have the ability to live for several days.
- The EPA has published a list of disinfectants that can be used to kill the pathogens responsible for COVID-19
- PPE (personal protective equipment) is essential in the fight against coronavirus
- Coronavirus is a novel pathogen responsible for COVID-19.
- Business owners are responsible for keeping their patrons and employees safe.
- Without widespread social distancing protocols in place, coronavirus is likely to cripple the United State’s healthcare system.
When you call us, you can expect us to rapidly and effectively remove any COVID-19-causing pathogen from your property.
You can expect us to secure your property to ensure that no one other than our crew can access the area before decontamination. You can also expect our team to don appropriate PPE. When we’re dealing with any infectious disease, our personal protective equipment usually covers us from the top to bottom.
First off, our professional remediation team will perform a preliminary deep cleaning. They’ll do a thorough wipe of all surfaces and objects, making sure to go over high-contact surfaces with extra care. Then, they’ll decontaminate the area using EPA-approved disinfectants.
Protecting the Most Vulnerable Parts of the Population
The first line of defense against infectious disease is knowledge. So far, there’s still a lot we do not know about the novel coronavirus.
We now know that:
- Coronavirus is a highly contagious virus.
- Coronavirus is spread through contaminated respiratory droplets, infected surfaces, and contaminated air.
- Coronavirus can also linger in the air in enclosed spaces including HVAC systems for days at a time.
- Coronavirus can live on surfaces for as many as 17 days.
- Asymptomatic individuals are capable of transferring this disease without ever knowing it.
- EPA-approved disinfectants can be used to eliminate the risk of coronavirus in indoor and outdoor spaces.
- If you are tasked with cleaning a contaminated area, your risk of contracting the disease is automatically elevated.
If you believe that your home or business has been exposed to the coronavirus, you should consider hiring a team of coronavirus cleaning and disinfection specialists to stabilize the situation. Remember, the safety and health of your family, friends, and patrons may be resting in your hands.
The Center for Disease Control has developed a list of people who have a higher risk of experiencing severe illness or death from COVID-19.
The list, as posted on the CDC’s webpage, is as follows:
- Chronic kidney disease
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant
- Obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 or higher)
- Serious heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies
- Sickle cell disease
- Type 2 diabetes mellitus
This list is followed by an even more comprehensive list of individuals who may be at risk for serious illness from COVID-19.
There is no doubt that the coronavirus is more dangerous to those suffering from severe health problems and those over the age of 65. Still, scientists have yet to determine a group of people that is completely exempt from this disease.
Understanding and Accepting Your Role in the Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic
Most people accept the fact that they are responsible for keeping both themselves and their fellow community members safe from the coronavirus.
If you are a Palo Alto business owner, your role in the community has just been amplified. You are responsible for preventing the spread of a potentially deadly infectious disease.
We’re Waiting for Your Call
In 2011 the Internation Health Regulations Review Committee was quoted as saying, “The world is ill-prepared to respond to a severe influenza pandemic or to any similarly global, sustained and threatening public-health emergency.”
At Eco Bear, we are prepared to respond to sustained and threatening public health emergencies. Our team of cleaning experts is trained and equipped to do just this.
If you have a reason to believe that your business or property is the site of a COVID-19 contamination, you need rapid remediation. The Eco Bear Palo Alto coronavirus cleaning and disinfection team is here for you 24/7. Give us a call at (818) 358-4359.
