Safety is a SUDS core value. Nothing is more important than the safety of our employees, our clients, and the communities we serve. The role we play in keeping people safe through the services we provide is always highlighted in situations like the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In these situations, our goal is to provide relevant information from leading governing bodies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and SUDS Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) group. To kill the COVID-19 virus, you need the proper cleaning agents and a professional disinfecting process. Without these you are at a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19. This level of thorough cleaning and disinfecting using CDC recommendations and EPA-registered disinfectants for COVID-19 can mitigate risk to life and legal liability.

Why the Cleaning Agent Is Important
COVID-19 is caused by a virus (SARS-CoV-2) that is part of a large family of viruses called coronaviruses. SUDS only uses sanitization agents that are EPA-registered disinfectants, including chemicals that are able to be used in sensitive environments, that are capable of eliminating viruses on various surfaces.
Why the Cleaning and Disinfecting Process is Important
According to the CDC, the coronavirus has the ability to live on surfaces for hours to days. To ensure that it is completely killed during the cleaning process it is important that the correct cleaning agents and procedures are properly applied and allowed to work for the proper amount of time.
