SERVPRO is on the forefront of cleaning and disinfecting services, and we pride ourselves on our methods, equipment, expertise, and cleaning products. Our franchise possesses a number of EPA registered disinfectants and sanitizers, one of which is SERVPROXIDE. It is a hospital-grade stabilized chlorine dioxide-based disinfectant and sanitizer that is designed to kill harmful bacteria, viruses and mold on hard surfaces and is an effective sanitizer for soft surfaces. It also carries the EPA's lowest toxicity rating, making it safe for everyday use.

Per the CDC, this product is recommended to be used against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). The product can be applied via electric/pump/trigger spraying or ULV misting. Depending on your needs, either of these methods can be utilized to thoroughly disinfect and sanitize your property. This product can be safely used in many environments, including homes, daycares, hospitals and nursing homes, restaurants, etc. It is also NSF rated (D2), meaning it can be safely applied on food contact surfaces with no rinsing required.

Our technicians at SERVPRO are highly trained and experienced in dealing with biological hazards, pathogens, disinfection, and sanitization. Our equipment and cleaning techniques ensure that you, your employees, and your customers are given peace of mind knowing your facilities have been professionally cleaned. One of the techniques we use is ULV fogging.

What Is ULV Fogging?

Ultra Low Volume (ULV) fogging involves densely distributing a chemical in aerosol form. This results in a mist that distributes through a room up to 8 ft. and disinfects surfaces throughout the room without the need for wiping. Using a hospital-grade disinfectant approved by the CDC, this form of antimicrobial application can help control the spread of COVID-19 and preemptively treat areas at risk of exposure.
