Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions?
COVID-19 is an enveloped virus causing mild to severe respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. It was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.
Symptoms can include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, which may appear 2-14 days post exposure.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person between those in close contact (within ~6 feet) and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may be possible for a person to get the virus by touching a surface or object and then touching their own nose, mouth, or possibly eyes, although at this time this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes with unwashed hands.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Because the virus is so new, the EPA has not tested and established efficacy protocols or inactivation claims. The EPA has issued “Guidance to registrants: process for making claims against emerging viral pathogens not on EPA-registered disinfectant labels,” 3 which at this time establishes approved products. An eligible product must meet the criteria in the document in order to make limited claims about disinfectant efficacy.
ServiceMaster disinfectants that can make this claim in line with dwell times and product labels are Peridox, Virex Plus, Sanimaster 7, Sanimaster 6, and Decon 30.
Dwell time is the required period that a surface must remain wet in order for a disinfectant to achieve full efficacy.
It is crucial to keep in mind that COVID-19 is a new and developing pathogen. Officials are just beginning to understand COVID-19 — how it spreads, the incubation period, duration and severity of disease — knowledge that will develop over time. We will resume to update you as the CDC, EPA, FDA, and OSHA provide more material.
We also want you to know that, while we hope it will not be essential, ServiceMaster DCS Des Plaines, IL is competent and equipped with the required protocols and procedures should any pathogen outbreak occur within your facility. Please call us if we can be of assistance.

Technician was neat and clean and pleasant to talk to. He answered all my questions with no hesitation. I would definitely request them back next year when I get my carpets done again.
Janine Guthrie⎥ Milwaukee, WI
This is by far one of the best ServiceMaster in Chicago land. I am with Chicago Inspection Agency and I do many “pre & post” mold testing. I have performed many “post tests” for their mold remediation and they pass 98% of the time…which is excellent! Therefore, the work that they do has been very successful.
