Keeping offices and commercial facilities cleaned and well maintained is important, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The coronavirus is known to spread very quickly from person to person and it can also live on many different surfaces and infect those who touch contaminated surfaces or objects. If you are concerned about the spread of the coronavirus in your workplace, you should hire a trusted professional to disinfect your building or facility. For government offices and other secured facilities, a professional with experience working in secure buildings must be hired for the job.
ServiceMaster NCR provides commercial disinfection and cleaning services to treat commercial buildings and offices, as well as secure federal government and military offices and facilities in Washington, DC. Our professionals will work with you to form a comprehensive disinfection and cleaning plan that treats your building and we will inform you about each step we take.

Each member of our staff has been trained to provide effective cleaning and disinfection and we use advanced equipment and EPA approved disinfectants while following strict guidelines. We are experienced in providing disinfection services during an outbreak as we have previously treated commercial buildings for Tuberculosis, Norovirus, and MRSA.
We only use cleaning products and disinfectants that are included in the EPA’s Emerging Viral Pathogen Policy because they are effective against SARS-CoV-2. We will ensure your property is properly disinfected, not sanitized, as sanitizing your property is simply not enough to remove dangerous pathogens. Our professionals keep in regular contact with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), medical professionals, and government agencies to get the latest news and updates about the pandemic.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19, also knows as SARS-CoV-2 and the coronavirus, is a respiratory illness with symptoms that include coughing, fever, and chills. This disease is known to spread through person to person transmission and people can even contract the disease by touching a contaminated object or surface. It can take between 2 and 14 days for someone infected to begin experiencing symptoms. There are some who are more vulnerable to severe symptoms including senior citizens and those who have underlying conditions or compromised immune systems.
