ServiceMaster by ARTec’s commercial cleaning services helps prevent the spread of EV-D68 and other communicable diseases.

Enterovirus D68 has been rapidly spreading across the nation, with a confirmed case in almost every one of the mainland United States. Though the spread of enterovirus in the fall is common, the D68 strain has been especially rampant. It has been greatly affecting young children, especially those with pre-established respiratory issues, like asthma. Commercial cleaning in Philadelphia, PA homes, business, and schools is more important now than ever before. With one confirmed death, it’s the responsible thing to do to make sure your facility is as clean as possible to prevent the spread of the virus; ServiceMaster by ARTec can help with that.

Because cases of EV-D68 are still increasing in Pennsylvania, it’s important to quickly establish a cleaning plan for your school, business, and home to combat the virus. There are simple guidelines to follow that will help prevent the spread, such as:

– Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
– Avoiding touching nose, mouth, or eyes.
– Avoiding kissing, hugging, or sharing food with those that are sick.
– Covering coughs and sneezes with your sleeve or a tissue.
– Disinfecting surfaces such as doorknobs, sinks, and toys.
– Staying home when you are sick.

These steps are simple enough, but how do you know when you have crossed the line from the common cold to a case of EV-D68? The more mild symptoms include that of a cold, like a runny nose, sneezing, and coughing. Unlike a cold, you may also experience a fever, and muscle/body aches. Severe symptoms can also include wheezing, and difficulty breathing for some.
