INFECTIOUS DISEASE CLEANING
CORONAVIRUS CLEANING – COVID-19 CLEANING
MICROBIAL CLEANING – VIRUS CLEANING
Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas of South Texas and the Gulf Coast, are experiencing the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic outbreak, as is the nation and world around us.
The Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, continues to spread around the city, county, state, and country and has reached the Greater Houston area. BIONIC Emergency Services, LLC is ready to assist local businesses, churches, schools, universities, daycare centers, adult care facilities, nursing and rehabilitative care facilities, hospitals, urgent care clinics, medical offices, doctor’s offices, chiropractic and physical therapy centers, dental offices, aesthetic service centers, fitness centers, restaurants, lounges, theatres, office complexes and government entities in minimizing and reducing the health risks to customers, clients, employees, and the public posed by the continued spread of this virus.
BIONIC Emergency Services, LLC is qualified and equipped, specially trained and follows the most stringent of protocols to clean any facility affected by a pathogenic, viral or microbial outbreak.
BIONIC Emergency Services, LLC only utilizes disinfectants that are deemed effective by the Environment Protection Agency ─ the EPA’s Emerging Pathogen Standard, and those listed and recognized by the CDC ─ Centers for Disease Control. While no cleaning products can claim to kill the particular strain of COVID-19 which is involved in the current pandemic ─ due to its “novel” status (new strain) ─ the cleaning products used by BIONIC do meet the EPA’s standard and are purported by the EPA to be likely effective against the virus, based on previous known Coronavirus strains.
If you believe that your facility, home, property or offices may have been exposed to COVID-19, or if you are interested in preemptively stepping up your cleaning regimen to help mitigate fears and disruptions to your business, and to put your employees, patrons, customers and the general public at ease, contact BIONIC today at 713-338-3434, or email to schedule a site visit and obtain a quote for a professional cleaning and disinfection service.
BIONIC Emergency Services, LLC’s services the Greater Houston area and surrounding cities, and Harris County, Texas and all contiguous counties. Under special circumstances BIONIC can travel outside of these areas as well. Please contact BIONIC with the details and your specific or unique requirements.
FAQs about Anti-Coronavirus/COVID-19 Cleaning & Disinfection:
Here are some answers and information to the questions BIONIC has received about cleaning and disinfecting services related to the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
DISCLAIMER: Nothing in the information below should be taken as Medical Advice. Any and all medical related questions, and general health questions, should be directed to appropriate medical providers and doctors.
Do you have a different procedure for cleaning a facility that has been exposed to COVID-19 vs one that just wants to take preventative measures?
Yes, our protocol for cleaning a facility where a COVID-19 infection has been confirmed, or possibly infected, is quite extensive, and involves extensive biohazard cleaning procedures. These procedures are mostly for the protection of our employees performing the services. For example, when working in this situation, BIONIC employees wear full PPE gear, work in teams to monitor each other, and dispose of used cleaning products and agents in specific ways.
What cleaning products are used in cleaning for COVID-19?
The virus is so new, the EPA has not tested and established protocols or inactivation claims. In everyday terms, this means that no one can say with 100% certainty that a particular cleaning product is effective against COVID-19, and anyone who makes such a claim at this point is not using professional discretion or being honest. That could change, but at the present time, there is no test or method to guarantee complete removal, remediation, or killing of the virus by any known chemical.
That being said, the EPA has issued “Guidance to registrants: process for making claims against emerging viral pathogens not on EPA-registered disinfectant labels,” which at this time establishes approved products. An eligible product must meet the criteria in the document in order to make limited claims about disinfectant efficacy. Some of the disinfectants that can make this claim in line with dwell times and product labels are Peridox, Virex Plus, Sanimaster 7, Sanimaster 6, and Decon 30, some Lysol products, and several others.
COVID-19 Prevention Protocol
While we stand ready to assist those affected by the Coronavirus to disinfect their facility and homes, there are many preemptive steps facility managers, property and home owners can take on their own to reduce the risk to employees, members of the public, families and anyone visiting their building or residence.
Here is a list of things that you can start doing right now to make your facility and home safer:
- Emphasize hand hygiene by all.

- Multiple daily cleanings are suggested if at all possible.
- Provide antiseptic wipes to clean common areas and high touch point areas during the day as they are used.

Know the difference between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing
Disease and Viral outbreak is an extremely serious and potentially life threatening situation. BIONIC keeps the health and safety of yourself, your family, and your employees as our top priority. We understand the rapidly evolving situation and circumstances surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) worldwide pandemic can be unnerving, with new information coming available hourly and daily, thus no chance should be taken; always call in the professionals!
Cleaning: Removes germs, dirt, impurities, and microbials from surfaces and objects. The cleaning is facilitated by using soap (or detergent), water and cleaning to physically remove germs and microbials from surfaces. This process does not necessarily or always kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting: Kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
Sanitizing: Lowering the number of germs on surfaces and objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards and requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces and objects to lower the risk of spreading the infection and microbials.
The worldwide pandemic and Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has people scrambling to protect themselves, as well as their homes and businesses from potential infection and contamination. COVID-19 has quickly gained a reputation for being particularly insidious and dangerous. Studies to date suggest the virus that causes COVID-19 can survive on surfaces for up to a week, or longer in some instances. This is why having a trusted, professional, biohazard cleaning and remediation company available to you, is so very important.
Where is COVID-19 cleaning and disinfection most critical? What will need to be cleaned and sanitized?
According to , most person-to-person spread of this superbug occurs via respiratory droplets within a distance of six feet between persons. Little is yet known about the spread of the virus via hard and soft surfaces. However, this pathogen is found to be quite durable with the ability to live for up to nine days outside of a host. Also, recent tests of a cruise ship, and other instances, with a high amount of COVID-19 infections showed the virus was still present on cabin surfaces 17 days after the occupants vacated.
Additionally, to completely clean up the virus the process must include the necessary steps and wait (dwell) times during treatment to ensure the sanitization agent is in direct contact with the coronavirus for the length of time necessary for the agent to be able to eradicate the sturdy virus. So, in order to completely ensure complete microbial cleanup and sanitization, professional deep cleaning is highly advised in areas where an infected person may have been before others re-enter.
In homes and businesses where a person infected with the coronavirus is isolated, the CDC recommends that occupants clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces daily in household common areas, such as tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks and phones. It’s not advised for other occupants to regularly clean areas occupied solely by the infected person due to the possibility of transmission, but a circumstance like this would be a very good example of when microbial cleanup and disinfection by a coronavirus cleanup company like BIONIC Emergency Services becomes valuable since we have the equipment, experience, agents and training to keep ourselves – and you – as safe and healthy as possible.
