COVID-19 Application of Disinfectants

A quote from our friend Michael Pinto of Wonder Makers Environmental: 90% right can still be 100% wrong! 

I believe Mr. Pinto is referring to is some companies and technicians are either trained wrong or just are not doing the work correctly.  With this type of disease, if your home or building is not being treated properly for COVID-19 known as the Corona Virus, people are put at serious risk. So the work needs to be done 100% correctly. Air Solutions Environmental can write the remediation plan or can do the “Proper” cleaning and apply the proper disinfectants. Remember 90% right can be 100% wrong!

About Coronavirus

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)is at the forefront of the outbreak of coronavirus that was first detected in Wuhan, China. As most know, this horrific disease has now spread throughout the world. The virus is named coronavirus, the sickness that results after infection has been named COVID-19 meaning coronavirus 2019.

COVID-19 has now been declared a pandemic by President Trump and his team of experts. This worldwide(global) outbreak of this disease has shown no signs of slowing down in the New Jersey area. Ocean County’s Lakewood, NJ and surrounding area are reporting many new cases every day.

COVID-19 may remain viable on non-porous surfaces for up to 9 (or 17 plus) days  compared to the normal influenza virus that is 1- 3 days

Social distancing!

Its recommended by the CDC that all Americans social distance themselves. The current recommendation is six feet. In Michael Glaser’s opinion, six feet isn’t enough space between people. If you take someone that may carry the virus, be outside, sneeze and the wind may take the germs farther then six feet? Why cant the wind take the germs eight feet or more?  So when ever possible, maybe people can remain vigilant and keep a social distance that six feet minimum and further if its safe enough to do so.*


Illness from COVID-19 has symptoms ranging from mild to severe. In some cases, unfortunately death. According to the CDC, it is estimated that symptoms may appear from as early as two days to 14 days after exposure*:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Other people have reported other flu like symptoms

If you feel that you have been exposed, please practice self-quarantine immediately. Consult your medical professional without delay if you develop symptoms.
