Disease can strike anywhere and at any time. It can spread from our home in Orange, CT all across Connecticut and anywhere else beyond its borders.

Infectious Disease Decontamination FAQs

This type of cleanup involves removing all contaminants or hazardous substances from a location or object. Once the cleanup is complete, the risk of spreading infectious diseases and being exposed to harmful chemicals decreases significantly.

Infectious diseases can spread in many ways, including:

  • Direct contact with an infected person or animal
  • Droplet transmission, such as an infected person sneezing or coughing on you
  • Contact with an infected person’s germs left behind on objects
  • Consuming food or beverages that have been contaminated

  • Washing your hands frequently
  • Not sharing personal items
  • Disinfecting frequently touched surfaces as much as possible
  • Covering your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick

MRSA can spread when one person touches the skin of an infected person or an object that has the bacteria on it.

If you have swollen, painful red bumps that almost look like bug bites or pimples, you may have MRSA. These spots often feel warm to the touch and are sometimes full of drainage such as pus. Infected patients sometimes also have a fever.

Clostridium difficile (aka C. diff) bacteria and spores can be found in feces. When a person comes into contact with an object or surface an infected person has touched and then touches their mouth, the disease spreads.

Once you’ve been exposed, your C. diff symptoms could appear within one day or even two months later. However, they will most commonly show up between five and ten days after exposure.

Unfortunately, C. diff can come back even after the symptoms go away. This is because of the spore component. Antibiotics have little effect on spores.


For a person to become infected with bloodborne pathogens, the pathogens must enter the body such as though a needle or a cut. The pathogens from the infected person can come from their blood or another bodily fluid.

If your home or business has been contaminated with an infectious disease, you should definitely get professional diseases decontamination cleanup. This is the safest, most effective way to stop the spread of any infectious disease.
