EPA and sanitization information to help you!

Posted by AARON ROOT on

With the current COVID-19 pandemic many contractors are interested in offering sanitizing services and rightly so. This is a huge, nationwide, problem that can only be addressed by killing this virus and stopping the spread. There are many commercially available products that will easily sanitize most surfaces we usually clean like our Q-64 hospital grade disinfectant(available here), but did you know you are supposed to be a licensed pesticide applicator to apply this solution commercially to sanitize? Many people in the restoration world make this license seem like something hard to obtain or exclusive but in many states it is as simple as a written test and paying a small fee. Many times a single state license can cover working in multiple states. We are compiling some resources below to try to help you.
