Which Cleaner Kills Viruses, Bacteria, Mold, and Fungi?


Which Cleaner Kills Viruses, Bacteria, Mold, and Fungi?

With over 20 years experience, and having both OSHA and NAMRI certifications the number one question from our customers right now is "What do you use to kill the coronavirus?"

Although there are many over the counter products that are available as licensed professionals, we have the expertise and access to many products not readily available to public consumers. Also, it is not just the products used but the training to use them. Even the best anti-viral product in the world can be ineffective if not used correctly.

The EPA is very specific in its guidelines for claims made by products as well as professionals who commercially use these products. At Dove Mold Remediation we are proud to have the training needed to completely remove Viruses, Bacteria, Mold, and Fungi from indoor environments. The efficacy of our products and training have been tested and proven effective against each of the following organisms utilizing a proprietary, EPA approved test method in GLP conditions.
