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 vital to keep in mind that COVID-19 is a brand new and emerging pathogen. Watchdogs are just beginning to comprehend COVID-19 — how it extends, the nurture period, duration and severity of illness — learning that will develop over time. We will stay to update you as the CDC, EPA, FDA, and OSHA provide more information.
We also want you to know that, while we hope it will not be required, ServiceMaster DCS is qualified and fitted out with the required protocols and procedures should any pathogen outbreak occur within your facility. Please call us if we can be of service.
