SERVPRO of Quincy - Cleaning Services
With spring cleaning kicking into overdrive, one local cleaning business says they're seeing an increase in people requesting their services.
SERVPRO of Quincy owner Tim Maguire said he's seeing a surge in businesses requesting his services.
He said his days are filled with deep cleaning now that spring cleaning is picking up and people cleaning now more than ever because of the pandemic.
"Most of the requests we've been getting are for the COVID-19 cleaning, kind of going along with what homeowners and businesses are doing. We're coming in to help with the fogging," Maguire said.
Maguire said people should wipe down any frequently used items, but said his services come into play for hard to reach places.
"We are wiping things down and giving it a really thorough cleaning as far as the confirmed cases, we've only done one of those and that's just a different level of cleaning, a little bit more detail-oriented. It's the same precautionary procedures: respirators, Tyvek suits, gloves, and full PPE," he said.
Maguire said SERVPRO uses CDC approved medical grade disinfectants and is nowhere near running out.
He said it's important for him to be able to do these services but says it's a community's worth of teamwork in keeping people safe.
"This is just one extra step and a precautionary measure to keep the risk down. But continue to wipe down all of your high touch areas, your light-switches, your faucets, your toilets, your sinks," Maguire said.
He said if you have questions you can call SERVPRO 217- 223-2993.

Blood, bodily fluids, and other Quincy biohazards can endanger anyone who comes in contact with them. Even trace amounts so small that they cannot be seen with the naked eye can pose serious health risks. When a site in your home or business has been contaminated, how do you make it safe again? Rely on the professionals at SERVPRO of Quincy for top-notch biohazard cleanup and restoration services.
Avoiding Health Risks
Is it necessary to seek professional assistance in cleaning up a location impacted by crime, trauma or death? With the risks posed by blood-borne pathogens and dangerous communicable diseases, cleaning a scene contaminated with biohazards like blood is a perilous undertaking for anyone who lacks the proper training and equipment. It is unpleasant to think about, but blood and bodily fluids are prone to splattering so that minute amounts can affect a wide area. The air at these scenes can be hazardous since small particles can become airborne if dried material is disturbed. Anything removed from the scene must also be disposed of properly to avoid spreading the contamination. Ultimately, the best way to make sure that a place is once again safe is to use a professional organization like SERVPRO that is experienced in biohazard restoration.
Preventing Legal Repercussions
As if the health risks created by biohazards are not dire enough, failure to have a contaminated space properly cleaned can also have serious legal consequences. There are regulations and laws regarding how biohazards are handled that must be followed. These rules are designed to safeguard everyone, and ignorance is not considered an acceptable excuse for disregarding them. Individuals and businesses that do not follow these rules may find themselves facing hefty fines. They might even be held liable if someone else is injured by their actions. Using a professional team that understands what is required to comply with the various rules and regulations governing biohazards in your area can shield you from both health risks and legal issues.
