Local Coronavirus Cleaning Anywhere In South Carolina
Diligent Decon offers local and effective services to help you with sanitization using disinfectants of your offices, workspaces, commercial establishments, schools and homes throughout all of South Carolina. We use products from the EPA Approved Disinfectant List for COVID-19, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus. We specifically use products from Diversey, a global company that is also based out of South Carolina, like us. We use these products in a spray form, allowing them direct contact to hard surfaces without the possibility of cross contamination. This disinfectant is sprayed onto surfaces and then allowed to air dry whenever possible because it is most effective when allowed to air dry. Our disinfectant won’t damage your hard surfaces, however because it is applied wet, paper products can be impacted negatively. For hard surface sensitive items, like computer monitors or TVs, we allow the product to sit for the required 10 minutes and then wipe those items to avoid streaks. Our disinfectant works best on surfaces regularly cleaned by you or your janitorial staff. Since coronavirus is more highly transmitted through frequently touched surfaces, it is likely that the areas of most concern are already clean enough for our disinfectant to work properly.
What Is Coronavirus and COVID-19
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with this new virus (named SARS-CoV-2).
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus, like MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. All three of these viruses have their origins in bats. The sequences from U.S. patients are similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir.
The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
CDC Coronavirus Recommendations
The CDC Recommends:
Everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat:
Individuals and communities should familiarize themselves with recommendations to protect themselves and their communities from getting and spreading respiratory illnesses like COVID-19.
Older people and people with severe chronic conditions should take special precautions because they are at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.
If you are a healthcare provider, be on the look-out for:
People who recently traveled from China or another affected area and who have symptoms associated with COVID-19, and
People who have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 or patients with pneumonia of unknown cause. (Consult the most recent definition for patients under investigation [PUIs].)
If you are a healthcare provider or a public health responder caring for a COVID-19 patient, please take care of yourself and follow recommended infection control procedures.
If you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 and develop symptoms of COVID-19, call your healthcare provider and tell them about your symptoms and your exposure. They will decide whether you need to be tested, but keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill are able to isolate at home.
If you are a resident in a community where there is ongoing spread of COVID-19 and you develop COVID-19 symptoms, call your healthcare provider and tell them about your symptoms. They will decide whether you need to be tested, but keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill are able to isolate at home.
For people who are ill with COVID-19, but are not sick enough to be hospitalized, please follow CDC guidance on how to reduce the risk of spreading your illness to others. People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to isolate at home during their illness.
If you have been in China or another affected area or have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you will face some limitations on your movement and activity. Please follow instructions during this time. Your cooperation is integral to the ongoing public health response to try to slow spread of this virus.

Preventative Maintenance After Initial Sanitization With Disinfectant
Once you have your property sanitized with disinfectant, it is critical to take the measured steps to prevent contamination going forward. Think of it as a two step process. Step one is what we do initially, which is to apply a disinfectant throughout your office, workspace and property. Once our disinfectant is dry, the opportunity for contamination is present again. This is where step two occurs. In addition to proper training of co-workers, employees and other residents in your property of the proper steps to prevent illness, we recommend another preventative measure that is a whole home or office in-duct air purifier device that works within your existing HVAC system to eliminate indoor air pollutants as well surface bacteria and viruses. We can refer you to a local, authorized installer in South Carolina who can go into more detail about this revolutionary system that can work in commercial and residential properties and greatly aid you in the prevention of viruses returning after sanitizing with a disinfectant.
