Biohazard Waste Effectively Disposed
As part of our cleaning process, all infected materials are cleaned, disinfected, and properly disposed of as biohazard waste.

We adhere to a stringent coronavirus demobilization process for our equipment, trucks and waste storage areas.
Cleaning refers to the removal of germs, dirt and impurities of surfaces.
Cleaning does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers the risk of spreading the infection.
Disinfecting refers to the using of chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or removes germs, but by killing the germs after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

Q: Is surface cleaning with a disinfectant effective in killing Coronavirus?
A: SARS-CoV-2 can be reduced and killed on surfaces, objects, and hands if the right products are used correctly. Cleaning and disinfecting with CDC approved chemicals, like the OTW Clean proprietary solution can reduce the risk of spreading infection by reducing and killing germs on surfaces frequently touched by people.
Q: Is a disinfectant effective in killing new COVID-19 strains?
A: According to the CDC, in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency, the effectiveness of disinfectants is not reduced in any of the new variants of the virus that causes COVID-19. The process of destroying Coronavirus is dependent on the physical properties of the virus, studies show that recent genetic changes in the COVID-19 pathogen have not changed any of the basic physical properties of the virus that cause COVID-19.
