Alliance Environmental Group is a proud member of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), which published a great video this weekend about Ebola Cleanup Tips.

Here are links to the documents discussed in the video for your reference:

CDC Guidance on Personal Protective Equipment

Interim Guidance for Environmental Infection Control in Hospitals for Ebola Virus

Cleaning and Decontamination of Ebola on Surfaces

WHO: Filovirus Infection Control

Since there have been no cases of Ebola so far in California, we have not yet been called on to decontaminate a location that has been exposed to the ebola virus, but we are ready if and when it happens. Our teams have the equipment and–even more importantly–the training to deal safely with dangerous viral and bacterial contamination scenes, without taking any risks to their own health or the health of our clients.

If you think you have encountered the Ebola virus or the virus has contaminated a location, do not try to clean it up yourself. Ebola is hard to catch, but under ideal conditions it can survive on hard surfaces up to 6 days. You probably have neither the equipment nor the training to deal with it safely.

If you need cleanup for ebola or any other viral or bacterial issues, please call on Alliance.
