WHY IS IMMEDIATE FIRE DAMAGE RESTORATION NECESSARY

It is of the utmost importance to immediately call a fire damage restoration service provider in the aftermath of a fire in your facilities. If left untreated, the ash and smoke can do further damage to your property. Any delay in seeking fire cleanup services can lead to corrosion of the materials and anything left inside of the building. In addition, smoke odors will stick to surfaces, structures and contents after the fire.

If you fail to urgently call a dependable smoke damage restoration service provider, the odors will expand and penetrate deep into every surface. This can provide the ideal conditions for bacterial growth. The walls, structures, furniture and equipment will be discolored quickly; therefore, it is wise to carry out fire damage restoration and smoke remediation on time. Also, the longer the smoke remains inside of the building, the more it will cause scratching in glass, and the faster it will discolor metallic items.

INFECTIOUS CONTROL CLEANING

YOUR PARTNER IN COMMERCIAL INFECTIOUS CONTROL CLEANING

Infectious control cleaning is critical in stopping the spread of communicable diseases, not only in the healthcare and hospital setting, but for all responsible businesses. In order to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your organization, EDS will regularly and routinely clean all surfaces, structures and items using modern techniques standardized in MRSA cleaning and cleanroom cleaning.

EDS specializes in decontamination and infectious control cleaning. We use a variety of specialized products to ensure that your premises are infection free. We extend our MRSA cleaning service especially to healthcare facilities and hospitals because MRSA infections mostly occur in those enviroments. EDS uses the latest and most effective products and procedures for cleaning, decontaminating and disinfecting surfaces that are prone to infections. For example, we use detergent-based decontaminators and EPA registered disinfectants to perform MRSA cleaning.

Before starting our effors to disinfect your premises, we will determine the nature and types of infections and organisms present. Since microorganisms can range from the harmless to the very pathogenic, we identify their types in order to come up with the proper course of action.

CLEANING AND DISINFECTING

The most essential and important measures to maintain hygiene in an organizational atmosphere is the cleaning and disinfecting of the premises. Our cleaning and disinfecting efforts are aimed not only to completely remove dirt and dust, but also to eliminate infections and prevent them from occurring. The surface cleaning fluids we use also suspend and eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms.

Our cleaning and disinfecting efforts will eliminate over 90% of microorganisms from your facility. We perform our cleaning and disinfecting tasks very cautiously because even a slight dispersing of the microorganisms can lead to the contamination of other equipment.

When you choose EDS to take care of the cleaning and disinfecting of your organizational environment, we will assign you a dedicated manager, with a team of skilled and trained staff. The manager will keep you regularly updated on project progress and will make sure that the staff follows all standards and protocols of effective cleaning and disinfection.

CLEANROOM CLEANING

EDS offers its cleaning services to cleanrooms. We understand that facilities that are normally used for manufacturing purposes, especially the production of pharmaceutical and scientific products, need regular and routine cleaning, decontamination and disinfection. These facilities are prone to environmental pollution like dust, microbes and chemicals.

Our cleanroom cleaning approach is unique in that it strictly follows the highest industrial standards. We use completely defined and standardized cleaning methods in addition to effective decontaminators and disinfectants. It is important to understand that the products used in cleanroom cleaning need to be of highest quality and powerful, so that microorganisms can be eliminated.

The selection of the proper combination of products and cleaning methods are equally important when it comes to cleanroom cleaning. This is specifically crucial for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Disinfectants come with varying efficiencies; some of which are bacteriostatic, meaning that they are meant to target bacteria that have already stopped growing. The disinfectant will selectively target them, reversing the changes to their cells by intermingling with their nucleic acids or penetrating their cell wall.

Then there are bactericidal disinfectants used extensively in cleanroom cleaning. These disinfectants target and eliminate the bacteria by inflicting structural damage in them through autolysis or cell lysis.

MRSA CLEANING

MRSA cleaning is particularly important in hospitals, healthcare clinics, surgical facilities, emergency rooms and other healthcare environments because the spread of deadly bacteria like MRSA can have devastating consequences if not contained beforehand. When MRSA infections befall, the premises should be immediately cleaned and disinfected.

EDS is a popular name when it comes to MRSA cleaning. We use effective disinfectants and procedures particularly developed for the elimination of MRSA infections. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, we provide MRSA cleaning services throughout the United States.

Our staff is highly experienced and trained in the provision of MRSA cleaning services for healthcare facilities. We initiate the cleaning process by disinfecting surfaces, structures and equipment that contact people’s bare skin. For example, bedrails, door handles, bed linens, robes, tables, chairs and medical equipment are more susceptible to contract MRSA infections and transmit them to people upon touch. We highly recommend regular and routine MRSA cleaning for healthcare facilities to prevent outbreak of MRSA.

WHAT OS MOLD AND DOES IT GROW

Mold is basically a fungus that grows as a result of moisture. It is normally found on moist building materials and structures, often appearing like stains. They come in different colors, but the smell is typically musty. Mold grows through very tiny spores that are not detected by the naked eye. They drift through the air, enter buildings and find shelter on moist surfaces where they begin to multiply. You should use a reliable mold removal service to
eliminate mold from your workplace.

If mold mitigation is not carried out in offices or other commercial properties, the indoor air quality can deteriorate. Further negligence can provide time for the mold spores to multiply and trigger health issues. It is important to understand that there are different types of molds, some of which are potentially dangerous. Serpula lacrymans and Dry Rot Fungus are extremely destructive.

WHY PERFORM COMMERCIAL MOLD REMEDIATION

Performing commercial mold remediation is very important to keep your workplace and staff safe. Mold is particularly damaging to the surfaces and structures on which they grow. Wooden structures can be easily damaged by molds, necessitating replacement of the specific structure and/or furniture. When mold grows, it also poses health problems to humans. Allergic reactions and respiratory issues are very common mold-associated health problems.

It is extremely important to understand that there are a few types of mold that can trigger very serious health problems by producing mycotoxins. When humans come in contact with mycotoxins, they can suffer from serious neurological problems and even die. Other health problems associated with mold growth include runny nose, itchy and irritated eyes, cough, itchy throat, itchy or rashy skin, migraines and asthma.
