MitiServe has a proven record of successfully handling environmental emergencies (biohazards, bloodborne and airborne pathogens) in healthcare settings, businesses, and schools. As a certified firm, our staff strictly adheres to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration's strict standards. If you or your business is impacted by the Corona Virus (COVD-19) or simply wish to take precautions regarding employee health, our team is here to help.


The Corona Virus (COVID-19) is considered a novel virus. The virus is highly infectious and can rapidly infect a population within a short amount of time. With this being said, there is much to learn in regards to its pathogenesis. Current data suggests transmission occurs via respiratory droplets. Currently, evidence published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests the virus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of these materials, followed by disinfection, is considered a best practice for prevention of COVID-19.


When cleaning and disinfecting, proper precautions must be taken to avoid exposure. MitiServe is highly experienced with these types of cases. Our team regularly takes proper measures to ensure the safety of our employees and to reduce cross contamination. According to the CDC, employers/employees participating in the cleanup of COVID-19 must be trained on the cleanup of bloodborne pathogens and proper use (donning/doffing) of PPE. Each of our environmental emergency employees are highly trained in the proper use of personal protective equipment (including full face respirators) and infection control. In addition, three members of our management team have previous healthcare experience in infection control in healthcare settings.


Our cleaning and disinfection methods are in accordance with the CDC guidance on Corona Virus cleaning procedures. We regularly consult this guidance for any updates on standards.  Our team is In alignment with the CDC, each of our disinfectants are EPA registered and are considered hospital grade products. In addition, we utilize EPA-approved products with emerging viral pathogen claims.


For linens and items specified for laundry, MitiServe utilizes the Esporta Wash System. The system consists a 4 step wash cycle utilizing a concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution. In addition, the chamber is drained with each step, ensuring recontamination does not occur in the wash cycle.


In addition to these services, MitiServe is able to provide temporary containment and negative air environments to contaminated areas, business, or healthcare facilities.
