Surface Testing for COVID-19
SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) swab testing surface samples to confirm if COVID-19 is present before or after hiring us for Sanitization-Disinfecting services to your property.
We offer ‘Sanitization-Disinfecting Efficacy Testing Services’. The results of these tests would demonstrate that the sampled surface area has been effectively Sanitization-Disinfecting and free of bacteria or fungi. If a virucide was included in the surface cleaning protocol, then this swab test indicates the surface was properly treated.
Americas Best Construction, Inc. is now accepting environmental swab samples to confirm the presence/absence of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) on surfaces before or after we perform Sanitizing-disinfecting services. Our Test indicators detect the nucleocapsid protein ‘N’ gene of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
Many recent studies suggest that the SARS-CoV-2 virus may remain viable and infective on surfaces for hours to several days, depending temperature humidity and the on the surface’s material type (fabric, plastic, cooper, tile, steel, etc.). Thorough sanitization and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces are recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and believed to be essential in preventing the spread of infection. The presence or absence of the viral genetic material on environmental surfaces can now be directly tested by us with the new SARS-CoV-2 test and used to demonstrate effectiveness of cleaning protocols.
