CDC, WHO, and The IEP Group Prepare for Coronavirus


The Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and The IEP Group LLC are preparing the population to become proactive in preventing and containing the coronavirus (COVID-19).  Until more is known about the coronavirus, the CDC (, accessed 03 March 2020) recommends performing routine environmental cleaning, which includes cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace with the usual cleaning agents while following directions on the label and providing disposable wipes so that commonly used surfaces can be wiped down by employees before each use (doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, desks, etc.).  No additional disinfection beyond routine cleaning is recommended at this time.

But, how do you confirm the building is truly clean?  The IEP Group LLC can perform a post verification.  The IEP Group uses a Hygenia ATP Bioluminescence monitor to sample surfaces on site to determine if they are clean.  Swabs are collected from the affected area, and the sampling result is provided within seconds. This result is compared against healthcare and food safety levels, determining if the appropriate level of sanitization has been achieved. Contact The IEP Group  to schedule your post cleaning verification for flu virus or other contaminants of concern.
