As increased fears and uncertainty about the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continue to spread throughout the country, pest-control company Rentokil announced a new service to meet the growing need of disinfection in businesses. 

The disinfection service is designed to protect employees and customers from the transmission of viruses, bacteria, fungi and mold. Certified specialists use ultralow-volume disinfection foggers to disperse disinfectant, which is environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic. The foggers create small disinfectant droplets, which treat surfaces—such as floors, handrails and doorknobs—and large areas in a short time frame. The treatment inactivates pathogens in 10 minutes, and guests can be back on site 30 minutes after treatment.

“As many of our commercial customers remain in operation to serve the public in this unprecedented time in history, they understandably have concerns about keeping their staff and customers safe,” said Rentokil President/CEO John Myers. “We developed this service to help businesses disinfect safely, quickly and efficiently.”
