Office Disinfecting

Curren can apply an EPA N listed disinfectant to treat areas where your employees work.  Utilizing precision application equipment, including cold mist foggers, which have power-mist capable of 56 micron droplets to ULV 20-35 micron droplets to surfaces throughout the space. These powered devices can yield single digit micron droplets: or deliver a soaking mist dependent on the surface treated. As indicated by the name, ULV (Ultra-Low Volume) misters and foggers transform low amounts of fogging liquid to substantial yet very fine droplet mists ensuring thorough application to surfaces.  This ensures that surfaces  are thoroughly treated

Disinfectant Efficiency

Curren has been using disinfectants for years in our mold remediation projects.  Our disinfectants are commonly used in hospitals, hence the appeal of using them on our project sites. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) produced and maintains a list of EPA-registered disinfectant products that have qualified for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Fiberlock Shockwave Concentrate with EPA registration 61178-73884 is on the list and will be utilized for this project. (List N).  Shockwave is Curren's choice for mold projects and for disinfecting business office spaces. 

While surface disinfectant products on List N have not been tested specifically against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, EPA expects them to kill the virus because they:

  • Demonstrate efficacy (e.g. effectiveness) against a harder-to-kill virus; or
  • Demonstrate efficacy against another type of human coronavirus similar to SARS-CoV-2.

Curren's technicians are trained in PPE (personal protective equipment) procedures such as how to put on and remove PPE equipment and utilize proper PPE during the duration of all work activities.

Professional office disinfecting allows businesses and landlords to help ensure the safety of their employees and provide the space a safe environment for business operations.

The CDC has many guidelines that businesses should follow once operations restart.  Once you reboot a space you have to follow your own plan such as:

  1. Limit entry of the work space to employees only. You must then trust your coworkers to be safe. FedEx, UPS,  food delivery everything gets stopped at door.
  2. Disinfecting common areas, such as copiers, during the day.
  3. Provide hand sanitizers in office for employees use.
  4. Offering masks and gloves for employees to use.
  5. Installing plexiglass at offices on desks in common areas.
  6. Keeping doors open so door knobs (common touch area) don't get touched.
