Has your home or place of business been contaminated by someone who was recently diagnosed as COVID-19 positive?
All American Restoration Offers Coronavirus Remediation in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania & Connecticut.
The COVID-19 pandemic has individuals and businesses scrambling to protect themselves from the virus. Its ability to survive on certain surfaces for up to nine days has helped the Coronavirus continue to spread, causing more and more fatalities.

As microbiological remediation experts, COVID-19 was naturally on All American Restoration’s radar from the start. Our President Michael Rubino even wrote a dissertation in the hopes of educating local and state officials on opening the economy back up safely and responsibly at the very beginning of the pandemic.
AAR and Covid-19 Remediation
Here at All American Restoration, we immediately jumped in to help as much as possible with the pandemic. From charitable contributions to an outreach program to help disinfect first responders’ vehicles, we did as much as possible to keep people safe.
Unfortunately, as time went on, we started to notice many companies jumping on certain trends like air duct cleaners to tackle Covid-19 remediation. The individuals at these companies knew very little about microbiology remediation and were offering up these solutions that did very little to disinfect surfaces. That’s where AAR stands out. We’re constantly assessing microbiological science and medical reviews to form a remediation strategy that thoroughly disinfects surfaces.
Our Coronavirus Remediation Process
Our management has a combined 45+ years in the remediation industry where we perform on average 75 technical remediation projects per year. Our projects range from working on a 2,500 sq foot home to a 50,000 sq foot commercial property. We have not only developed the most technically advanced process in the country to remove biohazards but have also perfected state-of-the-art engineering controls and containment strategies.
This containment strategy includes building pressurization to ensure that we can provide the proper pressures in each zone to prevent cross-contamination. This is especially important when creating quarantine zones or when disinfecting contaminated spaces while maintaining a clean environment in the other spaces of a building that are not contaminated. Cross-contamination is often the main culprit behind spreading an infectious disease.
Our Cleaning Protocol Roadmap:
1. Vapor wash the space so the bound airborne contaminants are weighed down and fall out of the air.
2. HEPA vacuum all surfaces to remove the airborne contaminants.
3. Wipe down surfaces in a 3-stage succession using registered disinfectants and microfiber towels. Each surface will be cleaned with three separate microfiber towels which we then immediately discard. We only use CDC-approved and EPA registered industrial-strength botanical disinfectants with a broad spectrum kill claim to clean surfaces.
This is the most comprehensive process ever developed in the remediation space and has been successfully utilized by us over the last three years. We use this same process in our Coronavirus remediation efforts.
Throughout the entire Coronavirus cleaning process, our technicians wear fully encapsulated personal protective equipment (PPE) and full-face respirator masks.
We also utilize the same technology to clean our equipment, trucks, and waste storage areas to avoid cross-contamination.
Steps You Can Take to Stop the Spread:
1. Since the virus can become aerosolized, investing in an air purifier can help remove any Covid-19 particles in the air. Installing an air purifier directly into the HVAC system is most effective, but standalone purifiers help to clean the air as much as possible too.
2. The virus is mostly transmitted through water droplets (from things like coughing and talking) so disinfecting surfaces is highly important. We recommend initiating constant cleaning protocols in homes, front offices, and places where people interact the most. We also suggest hiring a company to deep clean once a week so they can disinfect any stray particles. Make sure these companies use a wiping strategy though- not fogging!
3. Wash your hands constantly. Scrubbing for 20 seconds agitates the virus particles and is the best way to thoroughly disinfect your hands.

All American Restoration is your Coronavirus Cleaning Company
Although All American Restoration curated a process that goes above and beyond the recommendations set for by the CDC, WHO, RIA, and IICRC, there is currently limited testing available to ensure total elimination of the Coronavirus. As a Coronavirus cleaning company, All American Restoration guarantees that its cleaning protocol curbs the spread and threat of the Coronavirus. However, it cannot guarantee with 100% certainty the total eradication of it.
Compliance & Guidelines
When looking for a company to provide Coronavirus disinfecting and remediation, it’s vital that you choose a company following CDC & WHO guidelines to disinfect from COVID-19. All American Restoration is also fully OSHA complaint.
General Duty Clause, 29 USC 654, section 5(a)(1) requires that all employers protect their employees from recognized hazards:
“Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”
The Coronavirus is currently not listed as an exception to recording an occupational related illness in CFR 1904.5(b)(2). If an employee contracts COVID-19 through exposure on the job site, or from a co-worker, it is a recordable on the OSHA log for that business. In the event it results in days away form work, inability to work or fatality, this is also required to be recorded.
It is required that we contact OSHA to report a fatality or hospitalization if it is due to the Coronavirus. In case of a death, an OSHA investigation will follow and could potentially result in a fines if the company didn’t take appropriate measures by failing to share knowledge of said incident. As a Coronavirus cleanup company serving the New York New Jersey area, we follow strict protocol.
