Should I Have My Home Professionally Disinfected?


With all the recent concerns surrounding the global spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, many Americans are taking extra precautions to ensure their living spaces are as clean as possible. This is understandable, as taking extra steps to maintain health and wellness is more important than ever in these uncertain times. Here at FP Property Restoration, we’ve seen a rise in homeowners wondering, “should I have my home professionally disinfected?” However, the answer to this question is not as easy as a simple “yes” or “no.”

What Professional Disinfecting Service Can Do for Your Home

Typically, homeowners call for whole-home disinfecting and sanitizing service when they have been away from a property for a long period of time, and want to ensure it’s in good condition when they return. It’s no secret that everything from mold, fleas, dust, pollen, and other seasonal allergens can affect your home’s air quality, especially if it hasn’t been cleaned in a long time. On the more serious end of the spectrum, bacteria like MRSA and E. coli and even Rhinovirus strains can lay dormant in your property for long periods of time without you knowing it. When these contaminants are not taken care of, you can experience health problems including nasal congestion, throat, eye, and skin irritation, coughing, nausea, and headaches. Certain pollutants can also contribute to respiratory disease, which may affect you for the rest of your life.

However, while the average cleaning and restoration contractor will be able to aid you in fighting off indoor pollutants, the Coronavirus is something entirely different. It is important to state that no amount of disinfecting and sanitization service is guaranteed to protect you from the Novel Coronavirus. What professional disinfecting can do, however, is help boost your health and the health of your entire family, so your immune systems are strong and ready to fight infectious disease.

When you call FP Property Restoration to disinfect your home, we will use germicides that are EPA-approved and designed to kill 99.99 percent of C-Difficile (C Diff) spores, various strains of bacteria, including MRSA and Salmonella, mold, fungi, as well as viruses such as H1N1 and Rhinovirus. Our cleaning and restoration pros are extremely skilled at helping properties eliminate as many allergens and contaminates as possible, preserving the health and well-being of all who live or work there. From dehumidification service to improve your air quality to mold remediation that gets rid of harmful spores, we promise to protect your home or business in any way we can.

A Final Note About the Coronavirus

As concerns about COVID-19 mount in the U.S. and abroad, FP Property Restoration is here to help our customers stay informed. Again, while we will do absolutely anything we can to make sure your property is safe, it’s important to remember that the best thing you can do to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus is to listen to the recommendations of the CDC. Wash and sanitize your hands frequently, avoid contact with those outside of your house, especially individuals who have recently been outside of the country, cover coughs and sneezes, stay home if you’re sick, and of course, clean and disinfect surfaces. As our cleaning and disinfecting pros know firsthand, that’s pretty good advice—now, and in less crazy times, too.
