Disinfection PLUS Ongoing Protection
WITT® is now offering a comprehensive disinfection and protection service program called ViroGard™ for commercial facilities throughout Western Pennsylvania that only disinfects the surfaces we treat, it also protects them with an antimicrobial coating providing extended defense against harmful bacteria and viruses including coronavirus.
Our process involves the comprehensive application of an FDA registered and an EPA established medical grade product that combines a powerful yet eco-friendly disinfectant with residual coating properties, that destroys viruses, including the Novel Coronavirus, and bacteria on contact, and in addition, keeps heavily contacted surfaces and high traffic areas protected for extended periods.
WITT® has the experience with using disinfectants as well as the proper protective equipment and protocols necessary for successful disinfection for facilities including restaurants, processing plants, office buildings, government facilities, daycare centers, university buildings, call centers, and many other industries.

DISINFECT AND PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS TODAY.
For over 100 years, our pest management services have helped protect public health, food supply, and properties throughout Western PA. We take our role in safeguarding your quality of life very seriously and are proud to now include our ViroGard™ Disinfection & Protection program to further enhance the health, safety, and peace of mind of our customers and the spaces they work in.
HOW WITT'S DISINFECTION SERVICE WORKS:
Our service protocol includes WITT technicians carefully performing bio-misting and hard surface wipe-down for heavily contacted surfaces and high traffic areas. This application is performed in a slow and consistent manner to ensure adequate coverage and application time. After our product dries a "micro- crystalline” structure molecularly bonds to the surfaces, creating a highly durable transparent antimicrobial
coating preventing and killing the harmful pathogens it encounters, and lasts for up to 30 days on most treated surfaces.
While cleaning service companies, restoration businesses and other pest control firms are adding Disinfecting Services to their offerings, WITT is uniquely positioned as we actually have the experience and proven record of providing Sanitation and Disinfection Solutions for decades!
For example, our Watch-Gard® Food Safety and Sanitation program has kept supermarkets and other food service establishments in our region safe and sanitary with its comprehensive suite of services, equipment and chemical lines. In fact, multiple specially formulated WITT products are on the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) Center for Biocide Chemistries (CBC) list of products that have been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use against emerging enveloped viral pathogens and can be used during the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
How Should I prepare my site before the service?
Turn off all computers, space heaters, power-strips and other electronics.
Please allow clear access for our technicians and remove any trip hazards.
Clear off all desk tops, countertops and tables.
Remove any materials that could be damaged by moisture such as picture frames, paperwork and artwork.
Place all toasters, coffee machines, and kitchen supplies in a cabinet or enclosed space.
Place any food items in sealed containers or bags and remove from areas to be treated
Remove any items that go into the mouth, such as dishes, toothbrushes, and medications, from areas to be treated.
Cover all fish tanks. Aquariums may remain in place as long as the filtration and aeration systems are turned off and the tank(s) covered with a wet towel. Filtration and aeration equipment can be turned back on 2 hours after the treatment is completed.
All people and pets must vacate the service areas for the duration of the treatment and remain out of the treated areas for 2 hours after the treatment is completed.
If there are any other specific preparation steps required, a WITT team member will advise and review with you.
Will I need to do anything after my service?
Apart from enjoying peace of mind for you and your staff, the following quick housekeeping tips should be noted for continued success between disinfection services:
Do not enter for 2 hours after the treatment is completed.
Expect some product residue on surfaces and equipment such as windows, brass, mirrors, glass, and shiny plastics, which can be wiped off.
If any moisture is remaining from our treatment, it should be dried with a paper towel which is then disposed of and direct contact with hands should be avoided.
Always rinse food contact surfaces such as countertops, tables, picnic tables, exteriors of appliances and/or stove tops, as well as food or drinking containers (including any pet food/water containers) with potable water prior to reuse.
Ensure any new materials brought back into the area are cleaned and disinfected appropriately.
A WITT team member will notify you if there are any specific items requiring your attention following the treatment or prior to the next scheduled treatment.
