In the past year, everyone across the world has had to learn to live differently because of the COVID-19 pandemic. One thing everyone can do to be safe is following the CDC guidelines when you are in public.  If you encounter a positive COVID case at home or at work, you may want to consider a cleaning service to disinfect and ensure the virus does not spread. At SERVPRO of Omaha Southwest, we have state-of-the-art equipment to ensure you and the safety of your loved ones.

First, we clean all surfaces 7' and down. Second, we use our EPA registered disinfectant to mist throughout the entire cleaning area. We use a ULV fogger to apply our disinfectant. The fogger gives the solution an electrostatic charge, allowing it to wrap conductive surfaces with an effective and even coverage. Last, our crew will do a final wipe down, and ensure no residue is left behind. SERVPRO tailors the cleaning scope to match the needs at hand. Each job can vary depending on if it's a confirmed case or preventative cleaning and the space that needs to be cleaned and disinfected.

Call the cleaning specialists at SERVPRO of Omaha Southwest & Omaha West/Saunders County for all your cleaning needs at 402-408-0134.
