COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, has been declared a public health emergency as it continues to spread nationally, raising fears over contagion and confusion over appropriate coronavirus quarantine and containment strategies. Leveraging more than thirty years of experience developing best-practice decontamination and disinfection protocols, iMold has assembled a COVID-19 Response Team to assist you in planning for and deploying effective protection against this viral threat.

iMold has extensive experience decontaminating facilities and contents exposed to Ebola, norovirus, MRSA, and other viral contagions such as COVID-19. The team is ready to be deployed to your site immediately to mount the most appropriate response for precautionary, potential exposure or confirmed contamination.

iMold is armed with state-of-the-art equipment such as thermal imaging, vaporized Disinfectants, ultraviolet light and EPA-registered disinfecting agents proven effective against various strains of coronavirus. Our full-service approach to biohazard decontamination fully complies with local, national and international regulations.

In addition, some of the Specialized effective chemicals our certified technicians use are:

  • Concrobium
  • Decon30
  • Benefect
  • Shockwave with Peroxide

COVID-19 Overview

What is it?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in almost 90 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2,” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many other species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV and now with this new virus.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus, like MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. All three of these viruses have their origins in bats. The genetic sequencing of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in U.S. patients is similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir.

Who is most affected?

While the complete clinical picture of COVID-19 is not fully known, reported illnesses have ranged from very mild (including some with no reported symptoms) to severe, including illness resulting in death. While information so far suggests that most COVID-19 illness is mild, a report out of China suggests serious illness occurs in 16% of cases.

Older people and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes are at greater risk. In addition, people with compromised immune systems, because they are undergoing medical treatments, such as chemotherapy and taking immunosuppressant drugs may also be at greater risk.

How COVID-19 Spreads

Person-to-person contact is believed to be the primary mode in which the disease is spread. It occurs when people come in close contact with an infected person (within six feet or less) and inhale/ingest respiratory droplets produced through coughs and sneezes.

Spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects is also possible when someone touches something that has been infected with respiratory droplets and then touches their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes.

Our current understanding is that COVID-19 can survive on hard surfaces from anywhere between 9 hours and 4-5 days, putting anyone who comes in contact with it at risk of contracting and spreading the infection.

How our services prevent the spread of COVID-19

As stated before, our three-step preventative plan is our course of action when it comes to the coronavirus. We have extensive experience in decontamination facilities and contents exposed to other illnesses, such as Ebola, norovirus, MRSA and other viral contagions such as COVID-19. Our team is ready to deploy to your site instantly to plan and accomplish the most appropriate response for precautionary, potential exposure or confirmed contamination.

When it comes to the Coronavirus, your protection from the virus is most important to us. We want you to feel safe in these uncertain times, and our team is here for you to ease your nerves and keep you protected and safe from COVID-19

COVID-19 Response: Three Levels of Protection

LEVEL 1:  Precautionary

Level one protection is for businesses with no known contamination seeking to maintain safe and sanitary environments for customers and employees. Daily or twice-daily disinfection is conducted by iMold’s team of trained and experienced biohazard clean up technicians, using EPA-registered  disinfecants and proper disposal of waste. Treatments can be performed during off-hours to avoid business interruption.

LEVEL 2:  Possible Exposure

Business or public spaces with suspected exposure (an infected person inside the building) require detailed 10-foot down disinfection and deep-clean decontamination performed by iMold’s team of IIRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration)-certified biohazard cleanup technicians specially qualified for respiratory cleanup.

LEVEL 3:  Confirmed Exposure

Businesses or public spaces with confirmed exposure to COVID-19 require customized protocols specific to the site to ensure thorough and proper decontamination. iMold will work with client teams to develop a custom plan that protects the health of their employees, customers, and communities and mitigates impact to the operations of the enterprise.

All levels employ the following methods and technologies as appropriate 

  • EPA-registered peroxide-based cleaners and disinfectant agents
  • Ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection
  • Vaporized mist fogger with EPA-Registered Chemicals
    including Concrobium, Decon30, Benefect & Shockwave with Peroxide
  • Donning and doffing of personal protection equipment (PPE), including respiratory protection
  • Disposal of waste marked as a biohazard
  • Decontamination team health monitoring

Procedures

Cleaning Agents

EPA-registered peroxide-based cleaners and disinfectants are known to be highly effective against the COVID-19 virus. These products are designed for disinfection of hard, nonporous surfaces and do not leave corrosive residues. They are fragrance and dye-free.

Ultraviolet Light Disinfection

Business or public spaces with suspected exposure (an infected person inside the building) require detailed 10-foot down disinfection and deep-clean decontamination performed by iMold’s team of IIRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration)-Certified biohazard cleanup technicians specially qualified for respiratory cleanup.

Vaporized Mist Foggers

Our mist foggers disperse sanitizing chemicals and disinfect surfaces. Mist foggers use electrostatic spraying (see figure to the right) to ensure large areas and hard-to-reach corners and crevices are coated with disinfectant. This method is ideal for hidden surfaces and high-touch point areas such as railings, door handles, water fountains, lockers, and other fixtures and furniture found in high-traffic common areas.  
The Specialized effective chemicals we use are:

  • Concrobium
  • Decon30
  • Benefect
  • Shockwave with Peroxide

Positively charged disinfectant is attracted to any and all negatively charged surfaces.

The shutdown of an organism’s metabolic and reproductive process result from the absorption of UV light, rendering it no longer pathogenic.

Southwest Florida’s Licensed & Certified Disaster Recovery Team!

Our decontamination team members are medically cleared, trained and tested for respiratory protection device use. Technicians are skilled in the effective application of cleaning products, proper chemical handling and safety protocols including the offing and dining of personal protection equipment (PPE) (e.g, respirators, gloves coveralls) and proper waste disposal techniques.

All crews participate in a health-monitoring program for a minimum of 14 days after completion to ensure the safety of team members and their communities, iMold teams can also coordinate with local health officials so that timely and accurate information guide response operations.

Individuals must be medically cleared, trained, and fitted for respiratory protection device use (e.g., N95 filtering facepiece respirators), or medically cleared and trained in the use of an alternative respiratory protection device (e.g., Powered Air-Purifying Respirator, PAPR or Full-Face Respirator) whenever respirators are required per OSHA guidelines. Our team has all required vaccinations including influenza, as indicated by iMold’s standard operating procedures.
