Shops and retail centers. Customer comfort breeds customer loyalty, and we can provide it in the area of sanitation, no matter if you’re managing a big box store or a corner boutique.

We can provide the next level of cleaning, to ensure that students, teachers and administrators are set up for safety.

Healthcare facilities and nursing homes. Hospitals absolutely require the highest level of attention to cleanliness, and we’ll make sure every pertinent surface is sanitized, cleaned and free of bacteria that could complicate the lives of patients, seniors and other at-risk groups.

Hotels, casinos and convention centers. High-traffic venues like resorts and hotels need extra care when it comes to sanitation, and we’ll help ensure a hygienic environment for all the fun and business that goes on in your hospitality space.

Restaurants and foodservice. Sanitation is at a premium when it comes to the handling, processing, distribution and preparation of food, and we can make sure all relevant areas, machines and surfaces get the scrubbing they need to provide a safe transport or guest experience.

Property management and business parks. When you’ve got tenants, you need to provide clean spaces conducive to healthy living or commercial enterprise, and we can keep you on track to focus on big-picture issues by taking cleaning off your hands.

EPA Compliance Advisory on Product Claims

6/25/2020 (Permalink)

The U.S. EPA recently issued a Compliance Advisory titled “What You Need to Know Regarding Products Making Claims to Kill the Coronavirus Causing COVID-19”. 

The purpose of the Compliance Advisory is to address concerns related to products being used to disinfect surfaces which include claims to kill and/or be effective against SARS-CoV-2, the
coronavirus causing the disease COVID-19. For some of these products, those claims have not been reviewed or accepted by EPA and, therefore, may present a risk to consumers, and healthcare
providers in particular.

The EPA uses the following very strong language that is helpful in advising our clients and
customers regarding the increasing number of new age products and methods that are being pitched with dubious efficacy and other claims in connection with COVID-19, and challenging the use of those questionable products and methods in the marketplace:

It is unlawful for any person to distribute or sell a pesticide in the United States making claims
to that it will kill a particular pathogen, unless that pesticide is registered with EPA and that
particular claim has been deemed acceptable by the agency. The EPA is receiving a steady stream of tips/complaints concerning potentially false or misleading claims, including efficacy claims,
associated with pesticides and devices. These tips/complaints are being actively reviewed and
efforts are being made to identify potentially violative products. The EPA intends to pursue
enforcement against products making false and misleading claims regarding coronavirus. The EPA is working with e-commerce platforms to remove/prohibit these fraudulent and/or otherwise inefficacious products from the marketplace. The EPA is also coordinating with the U.S. Department of Justice and other federal partners to bring the full force of the law against those selling or otherwise distributing violative products.

SERVPRO of Overland/Cool Valley consistently uses only SERVPRO approved cleaning and disinfecting products and methodologies to help combat the COVID-19 crisis. We are always here to help. 314-279-5600
