Steri-Clean has the only effective protocol and training to ELIMINATE the viruses from any environment. 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a virus that affects the respiratory tract and is spread with person to person contact.
Symptoms: According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying. Symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 after exposure. Symptoms can include: fever, cough and shortness of breath.
Prevention & Treatment
There is currently no vaccine to prevent 2019-nCoV Coronavirus infection. The CDC believes the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus and recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent from spreading:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with people who appear to be sick
Stay at home if you are sick
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash, then wash your hands thoroughly
Clean and apply disinfectant to commonly touched objects and surfaces (See next paragraph)

Superbug Cleanup Services in Texas
Superbugs are named for their ability to be super resistant to antibiotics. Superbugs spread easily just by human touch or by touching an infected object which makes these little strains of bacteria so dangerous. There are many types of superbugs but the most common are Clostridioides difficile, better known as C-Diff and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus, or MRSA.
C-Diff is responsible for causing illness in half a million people each year, in the U.S. alone. Twenty percent of people who get C-Diff will get reinfected. It’s especially dangerous for people over 65 because almost 10 percent of them die within a month of the diagnosis. Those who are taking antibiotics have recently been hospitalized, or who have a weakened immune system are more likely to get C-Diff.
C-Diff causes diarrhea and inflammation of the colon referred to as colitis. Those infected get a fever, have pain in their stomach, don’t feel like eating, and are nauseous. Doctors can determine if symptoms are caused by C-Diff from lab tests. When these tests are positive, patients need to take antibiotics for 10 days. In severe cases, some patients need to be hospitalized.
MRSA is transmitted in the same way as C-Diff. In the U.S., around 120,000 people get it every year, and of those, around 20,000 will die from it; many of those deaths being children. Some of the most vulnerable to get MRSA are older adults, children, and those who have a weakened immune system.
MRSA starts with a skin infection and people often notice a small bump that looks like a pimple or spider bite. More bumps continue to appear under the skin, usually underneath the hair. A fever soon develops, the person experiences chills and a severe headache, and pus-filled blisters begin to appear. Treatment includes draining the pus-filled blisters and getting on a regimen of antibiotics for up to 14 days.
The presence of harmful viruses and infectious diseases can pose a significant hazard to human life in any facility. Superbugs are especially serious since they are often poorly understood by the medical community. If someone contracts a superbug, their home and workplace should be cleaned thoroughly by specialized professionals who know how to quarantine superbugs and sanitize environments. At Steri-Clean Texas, our team of professionals offers the superbug cleanup services businesses and homeowners need to stay protected.
The Steri-Clean Process for Addressing Superbugs
We take infectious disease outbreaks seriously by treating every case like a biohazard situation. Upon arriving at the affected property or location, we start by ensuring that everyone is out of harm's way and that the potentially contaminated areas are isolated as much as possible. In most cases, we will work with your team to conduct a thorough investigation and make lists of anyone who may have been exposed. We will also explore potential points of contraction, such as bathrooms, chairs, computer keyboards, and other shared items that infected people may have touched.
Once we have worked with you to develop a customized plan, our team will follow CDC guidelines, for dangerous and contagious pathogens to properly address any contamination. By applying these standards for superbugs and pathogens cleanup services, we will protect your business from the legal liability associated with failing to provide a safe workplace. Most importantly, our process will scientifically sterilize all affected sections of your facilities to prevent cross-contamination and remove potential biohazards.
How We Clean Facilities
Our first goal when providing the superbug cleaning Texas residents need is to remove any materials that may have been contaminated. In many cases, clients will have concerns with an employee who bled or vomited in a shared space. We address biological materials first because some superbugs can be transferred through the air and ventilation systems.
If contamination stained your building or created undesirable smells, our team will thoroughly address these issues to get your facility back to normal. However, our first goal when dealing with superbugs is to take a cautious approach to disinfecting all surfaces. Additionally, although we always stay on the side of caution, we also work to minimize waste by avoiding the areas that do not require cleaning.
When we clean a facility, we utilize modern technology to confirm that superbugs have been successfully removed. Our trained team uses special detection tools for superbugs and pathogens cleanup services. This equipment can measure the level of contamination on surfaces to eliminate any possibility of accidentally neglecting key areas.
