Coronavirus - Fighting the Spread
At SERVPRO of Mobile County, our essential employees are out there everyday fighting the spread of COVID-19. We take every precaution and follow all CDC guidelines to ensure the most effective cleaning process while protecting our employees. In accordance with protocol, our technicians utilize necessary PPE (personal protective equipment) on each job site and we strictly adhere to proper donning and doffing procedures. There has been some controversy regarding what cleaning methods are effective (such as fogging only); however, one area that has not been debated is the efficacy of proper handwashing and sanitizing routines. Using hand sanitizer often is of the best ways you can protect yourself and prevent the spread of the virus. In addition to following stringent PPE protocols, we strongly encourage our technicians to use hand sanitizer often throughout the day. We visit multiple job sites throughout the course of our day and taking extra measures can not only protect our team but help to protect our customers as well. In June of 2020, the FDA released a list of hand sanitizers that contained significant amounts of methanol and should not be used. Methanol has potentially harmful side effects including nausea, headaches, dizziness, seizures and even death in some cases. Since the release of the initial list, there have been numerous updates.
