WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW?
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. With tens of thousands of confirmed cases worldwide and over a thousand deaths of the respiratory infection, health officials have confirmed more cases of the Coronavirus on U.S. soil.
HOW PANHANDLE CLEANING & RESTORATION PROTECTS YOU
Panhandle Cleaning & Restoration prides itself on having the industry’s most innovative equipment to combat viral threats to you and the places that you occupy on a daily basis. The SteraMist® equipment that we’ll use to disinfect and decontaminate your area is the same being used in hospitals, government buildings, and corporations across Europe, Asia, and major metropolitan cities in the United States.
In order to eradicate a pathogen like the Coronavirus, which has the ability to live on an inanimate surface for up to 9 days, the sanitizing agent also must be in direct contact with the virus for an equally long period of time. This is precisely why using an over-the-counter cleaning product won’t suffice when confronting a lethal pathogen such as this deadly virus.
TOMI has EPA accepted studies on the current label to meet the standard to respond to emerging pathogens in the enveloped and non-enveloped categories, which include, SARS, MERS and CoViD-19, the current coronavirus outbreak.
Panhandle Cleaning and Restoration is ready and willing to assist any organization or property affected by this growing crisis and is eager to assist with the disinfection or decontamination to any of the following industries including, but not limited to, hospitals, health departments, school districts, nursing homes, shopping malls, day care centers, colleges & universities, airports, municipal buildings, sports arenas, theaters, restaurants, gyms & workout centers, hotels and office buildings.

ICRA CREDENTIALS AND STAFF ACCREDITATION
The first investment Panhandle CR has made is in regards to the sensitive work we do in critical spaces including the environment of care, clean rooms, isolation rooms, ICU’s, laboratories, clinics, and other spaces where pathogen and contaminant exposure risk is high. To that end, we have invested in the accreditation of each of our Emergency Service Managers, Project Managers as well as our Vice President in CERC or Critical Environment (Disaster) Reconstruction Contractors by the Linders Health Institute.
This ICRA (Infection Control Risk Assessment) credential is accredited by the USGBC and the American Institute of Architects. ICRA and CERC addresses the planning and execution of safety measures, as well as compliance to the best practices for reduction of exposure risks during construction, renovation and remediation of buildings, spaces or environments in healthcare and related industries. The Institute’s ICRA (Infection Control Risk Assessment) Course has obtained global recognition and is now used as the USGBC’s course for healthcare and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for continuing Education.
Panhandle is committed to highest compliance standards for the construction, mitigation or restoration of facilities. These standards are specifically designed to reduce or eliminate exposure to contaminants and/or pathogens and their impact on the efficacy of products, safety of workers, and employees during and after any construction or mitigation/restoration process.
The Second investment Panhandle CR has made is in a world class disinfection technology known as Steramist BIT. This Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) uses activated ionized hydrogen peroxide through a misting delivery platform to effectively destroy pathogenic organisms, disrupting cellular function to eliminate replication (growth) in spaces and on surfaces. This technology is ground breaking and is currently in use at the Center for Disease Control, the Department Of Defense, Galveston National Labs and is endorsed by the Office of the President of the United States in the fight against new and emerging pathogens.
