The spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in New York has people scrambling to protect themselves, their homes and businesses from potential contamination. The effects of this type of biohazard situation can last up to a week and the continued spread of the disease has led to a growing number of fatalities in the US. We are dedicated to providing rapid emergency response 24/7 so you can have peace of mind in the event of an outbreak.
HOW DO WE CLEAN CORONAVIRUS?
The CDC encourages cleaning of high-touch surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets and tables. Other spaces mentioned in the CDC’s guidance for commercial spaces include:
- Kitchen/Food Areas
- Retail Spaces
- Water Fountains
- Sales Counters
- Carpets and Rugs
- Stair Handrails
- Elevator Cars
- Playground Equipment
- Fitness Equipment
Yellow Restoration strictly follows the most state-of-the-art procedures when it comes to disease cleanup and disinfection. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still novel, so our Coronavirus Task Force continually consults with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for up-to-date solutions and utilize CDC approved and EPA registered disinfectants.
HOW WE DISINFECT CORONAVIRUS
Yellow Restoration uses CDC approved and EPA registered industrial-strength disinfectants with a broad spectrum kill claim
- All infected materials are cleaned, disinfected, and properly disposed of as biohazard waste
- Fully encapsulated personal protective equipment (PPE) and full-face respirator masks are worn at all times by our certified cleanup technicians
- We adhere to a stringent coronavirus demobilization process for our equipment, trucks and waste storage areas

BUSINESS, AND YOUR COMMUNITY
When selecting a company to provide Coronavirus Disinfection Services, select Yellow Restoration.
General Duty Clause, 29 USC 654, section 5(a)(1) requires that employers protect their employees from recognized hazards.
“Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”
Additionally, the coronavirus is not listed as an exception to recording an occupational illness in 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). This means that if an employee contracts COVID-19 from another employee or through occupational exposure on a cleaning job, the illness is recordable on the OSHA log for that business. If it results in job restriction, days away or fatality, this is also required to be recorded.
There’s a requirement to contact OSHA to actually REPORT a fatality or hospitalization if it is from Coronavirus. In the case of a death, an OSHA inspection and investigation would follow and could result in a fine if the company didn’t take measures when they knew about it and should have.
Though Yellow Restoration follows protocol promulgated by the Center for Disease Control Prevention, there is no testing that exists to ensure total elimination of the coronavirus. Yellow Restoration guarantees that its cleaning protocol curbs the spread and threat of coronavirus. However, it cannot guarantee with 100% certainty the total eradication of it.
