About the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
COVID-19, also commonly known as the 2019 novel coronavirus, started in 2019 in China and quickly spread to the rest of the world, including the United States. It has unfortunately resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of infections worldwide. COVID-19 is primarily spread through close contact with others who have already contracted it. It spreads through respiratory droplets and can be transmitted when an infected individual sneezes, coughs, or simply talks. Common symptoms of COVID-19 include shortness of breath, high fever, and coughing. Symptoms may not present for up to 14 days, and you may never experience them at all while being infected.
Who is at the Highest Risk for Coronavirus?
In short, everyone is at risk. However, older adults and those with pre-existing health conditions seem to have a higher fatality rate. Studies have also shown being obese is a risk factor for suffering from severe symptoms of the coronavirus. Health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure also make people more susceptible to having a tougher battle against COVID-19.
This deadly virus affects those of all age groups and ethnicities, and up to half of the people infected with COVID-19 are asymptomatic or show very minor symptoms. This means everyone must assume they’re carrying the virus and take the proper steps to protect others. It’s essential practice social distancing guidelines of staying at least six feet apart from others and wearing a mask in public places. You should also wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes. If you suspect you’ve been exposed to the coronavirus, it’s highly recommended you self-quarantine for two weeks.
Cleaning and Disinfection for COVID-19
While you should continue to take steps of caution and clean and disinfect your home or business, coronavirus cleanup is not a DIY job. The average person doesn’t have the supplies and manpower to fight COVID-19 effectively, especially on a large scale. As an industry leader in infectious disease and biohazard remediation services, DKI is uniquely prepared for coronavirus disinfection throughout the United States and well equipped with hospital-grade/EPA registered products. We monitor and adhere to the strict protocols set in place by the CDC, EPA and OSHA, and have years of experience dealing with other biological contaminants. Our DKI team is dedicated to providing emergency response 24 hours a day so you can have peace of mind during this historic pandemic.
Although COVID-19 is new to everyone, our certified techniques for infectious disease cleanup still prove effective to reducing the spread of the virus. Our proactive cleaning methods using hospital grade/EPA-registered disinfectants include the cleaning and disinfection of porous and non-porous surfaces, equipment, tools, supplies, and more. Our team is ready to clean and sanitize everything in your home or business, including high-touch surfaces that the CDC recommends: counters, doorknobs, tabletops, light switches, bathrooms fixtures, phones, and more.
Trust DKI for Effective Disinfection of your Home or Business
Coronavirus can spread through the air or survive on surfaces that have not been disinfected. While it’s essential to practice proper handwashing techniques and social distancing, those steps can only do so much to protect you if someone in your building has contracted COVID-19. We know it can live on surfaces for many days or weeks, and those infected may not show any symptoms at all. For these reasons, it’s all the more essential to have a trusted professional biohazard and infectious disease remediation company taking care of cleaning and disinfecting your property. DKI adheres to all CDC, EPA and OSHA regulations and uses the latest technology and techniques to combat the coronavirus and reduce its spread right away.

What to do When Someone Becomes Infected
When an employee or visitor to your facility is confirmed to have COVID-19, it’s essential to stay calm and follow a specific protocol. The first step, according to the CDC, is to remove the infected person from the facility. They should self-quarantine at home for at least 14 days and follow up with professional medical care if their symptoms become severe. Anyone potentially exposed to an infected individual should also self-quarantine for 14 days. Any areas the person visited should be isolated, and employees should be removed from the area. From there, you should call the team at DKI, and we’ll be on-site within two hours to begin the cleaning and disinfection process for your property.
