Infection Control

Awareness to potential viral impacted surfaces is a priority to contractors across all verticals.

Property and facilities manager, architect, engineer, and general contractor project priorities have shifted to programs that consider general cleaning and disinfection procedures for general occupancy public spaces, workplaces and other community settings.

Decon Environmental Remediation’s construction and environmental remediation services are in complete compliance with The Ontario Ministry of Labour Occupational Health and Safety Act, conform to and are operated in accordance with “Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System” (WHMIS), and scopes of work follow The Ontario Ministry of Environment Regulation 347. Site supervisors are trained in following IPAC protocol and procedures and Construction-Related Infection Control.

Disinfection Procedures in 3 Steps

As per Decon’s Construction-Related Infection Control Protocol

  • Worker/equipment decontamination
  • Execution
  • Inspection & testing

Properly Executing Viral Decontamination

Avoid dust generating activities.

HEPA vacuuming is not an acceptable means of decontaminating viruses.

Where possible, use pre-mixed solution or disinfecting wipes.

Designated work areas and workers should be organized into a grid system to ensure maximum coverage. Supervisors should perform continuous inspection and documentation of the areas completed.

Consult product label and Safety Data Sheet and read and follow all manufacturer’s instructions for proper application and use of cleaning and disinfection products.  This includes solution preparation, pre-treatment requirements, application contact (dwell) time, and post-application requirements.  Only use product(s) on surface(s) for which they were intended.

Did you know?

Painting over mould will not kill or seal it up. Just because you can’t see mould, doesn’t mean that you don’t have it.
Decon Environmental Remediation can help detect and treat mould problems

Inspection & Testing

Owner’s and/or contractor’s consultant representative to be present prior to, during and upon completion of cleaning and disinfection procedures to provide quality assurance.

Visual inspections may be conducted to confirm that cleaning procedures are being adhered to and that surfaces within work areas are clean and visibly free of soiling, debris and dust accumulation upon completion of cleaning and disinfection.

Testing of surfaces prior to and upon completion of cleaning may be conducted to evaluate surface cleaning effectiveness and cleanliness with respect to biological loading using ATP-based direct-reading instrumentation.

Additional cleaning/disinfection or alternative cleaning/disinfection procedures may be required if inspection and/or testing indicates unacceptable results.

Our Health & Safety Program covers general cleaning and disinfection procedures for viruses in general occupancy public spaces, workplaces and other community settings.

The Decon Difference

Decon is prepared to address any level of mould contamination in your home or workplace, anywhere in Toronto and the surrounding area of Southern Ontario. Our mould remediation services involve identifying the root cause of your mould problem, and addressing it quickly and professionally. With our thorough understanding of safe mould removal practices, we will make your space a risk-free environment and protect those most vulnerable to mould in the process.

I chose Decon to improve my basement deficiencies. I have never seen a company treat a project and the entire process as if it were for a family member. Naeem’s team & supervisor Julio were delicate, thorough, clean, professional, and precise. They completed the job with the utmost quality, respect, and value. 

You can hire many different companies to perform remediation without a doubt, but will they completely take the time to explain the process every step of the way? Adjust and pivot to unexpected issues (that always occur on any project) and tackle them with the customer head on instead of cutting corners? Listen to the customer? Provide daily project updates? Start the job and finish the job without doing other jobs at the same time dragging the project on? Provide the expertise required to do the job? Ensure a fully certified rock star group is always on site? 

Decon will always answer the phone after hours (Naeem & Julio, we had many after hours and weekend talk updates so thank you) you were ALWAYS there to answer questions and come on site as required. Any project especially basement work is stressful but using Decon made the process truly perfect not to mention the crew going above and beyond the scope to ensure complete satisfaction and quality of work. 

Decon, I will use you forever and will call you when I need my grading/design/build of my future backyard oasis! Decon can have any future client interested in using their services call me direct anytime and I will be more than happy to share my experience with them.
