Why Get Decontamination Training

As businesses are starting to open up in Ottawa and Kingston, proper COVID-19 protocols are necessary to ensure that staff, visitors, and residents of properties are kept safe. While guidelines exist for the proper decontamination of areas, proper training can ensure that your staff are more prepared and use only the most effective equipment and methods of preventing the spread of coronavirus. The restrictions faced by Canadians have been challenging for businesses. Most customers do not feel comfortable to enter a store or business which does not have clear protocols in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Proper safety measures also ensure that your staff are protected, and helps prevent lengthy absences due to illness and self-isolation. First Response Cleaning is Ottawa’s leading extreme cleaning company, and has years of experience delivering disinfection services.

Why Viral Decontamination Is Important

The global COVID-19 pandemic has shown the high priority of maintaining clean and sanitized premises to prevent coronavirus infection. Despite the best efforts, however, there are multiple weak links in the chain of sanitary conditions in any home, business or commercial location. The more people coming through, the higher the likelihood that COVID-19 contamination or coronavirus infection could occur. If contamination goes unchecked, coronavirus can spread from one

person to another by means of coughing, talking, etc., and infection from touching surfaces. In an office, store, or commercial / industrial facility, where many people are passing through the same space & touching the same surfaces, COVID-19 contamination or coronavirus infection can lead to a mass health & safety issue. COVID-19 decontamination is the only answer. It helps restore proper sanitizing to the premises and brings a sense of trust amongst your staff, clients and/or family.

Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19 Cleaning

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV), Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and the current global health emergency: Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). COVID-19 is a sometimes severe, respiratory disease (sickness) that can result from the exposure to a previously unknown coronavirus now named Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

The best step you can take to fight the spread of COVID-19 is to wash your hands – constantly, religiously and vigilantly. On top of that, you’ll want to minimize your exposure to the coronavirus by touching as few surfaces as possible when in public areas or anywhere outside your home. Social distancing is also being emphasized as a way to combat COVID-19. Currently a physical distance of at least 2m is recommended between you and other people at all times. For your home or business, regular cleaning – especially of high-touch surfaces – is another important part of the fight against COVID-19.

To protect against the transmission of COVID-19, there are steps you can take at home or at your office. Wiping down surfaces which are frequently touched with disinfectant chemicals is an effective means to slow the spread of the virus. Health Canada has a comprehensive list of chemicals and products which can effectively sanitize surfaces. For more in-depth cleaning, contact us to arrange a COVID-19 decontamination of your home or office.
Coronavirus decontamination training is a service offered by First Response Training where we educate and train employees on the proper procedures for reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19. Our training covers how to decontaminate surfaces, keeping employees safe, COVID-19 cleaning protocols, and more. We will help your business reopen with confidence that all appropriate COVID-19 protection steps are taken.
Both disinfection and decontamination are processes by which microbes and viruses are killed or eliminated. Decontamination reduces the microbial contamination of materials or services and is most often accomplished using chemical disinfectants. Decontamination is done to make an environment such as an office or home safer for its occupants by dramatically reducing the presence of microbes. Disinfection is the elimination of virtually all pathogenic organisms in an area, and is often impossible to achieve in living spaces and offices due to the variety of materials present. COVID-19 Decontamination for homes and offices is an effective way to reduce the risk of viral transmission.
