COVID-19 Response Profile
Atmos is the leader of COVID-19 disinfection services in the Washington DC metro area. We have developed comprehensive programs to address proper cleaning and disinfection application to combat pathogens such as e.g., COVID-19. Atmos has experience in providing disinfection services for all types of settings including municipal buildings, hospitals, hotels, schools and many more. Atmos follows CDC and EPA guidance for cleaning and disinfecting. Atmos professional crews are trained to wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and clean in such a way as to minimize risk to themselves and others.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are taking steps to keep their facilities sanitized, such as wiping down areas with disinfecting wipes and cleaning more regularly than normal. However, these steps are not sufficient to maintain a safe work environment in the midst of an epidemic. Atmos recommends professionally disinfecting facilities to keep employees and occupants safe and to keep essential personnel working in this time of crisis.
Atmos cleans all surfaces prior to applying disinfectant. Cleaning services are accomplished by physically wiping surfaces to clean and remove visible soils. Applying disinfectant may use a combination of techniques-including fogging, surface wiping, and spraying. Using a combination of techniques helps to ensure areas of the building are disinfected that may otherwise be missed by using only one technique. A brief overview of these methods is provided below:
