Recent events in 2020 have caused a paradigm shift in people’s understanding of what it means to be clean.
- December 31, 2019 - The WHO reported to the world the first cases of coronavirus, alerting nations around the world to a possible large-scale outbreak of the disease.
- January 21, 2020 - The United States reported the first case of COVID-19 within its borders.
- March 11, 2020 - The WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be an international pandemic.
- March 13, 2020 - The United States issued a statement declaring the spread of COVID-19 to be a national emergency.
- During the following months, the nation went on lockdown.
The general population embraced social distancing, sheltering in place, and remote working. Masks and gloves became a part of the American work uniform. Sneeze guards sprang up everywhere overnight. Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, alcohol, and household cleaners disappeared from store shelves along with toilet paper and paper towels. Handwashing became the national pastime. Meanwhile, baseball and other sports at every level reduced schedules or canceled their seasons altogether.
National chain stores assigned workers to meticulously wipe down shopping carts while reducing the hours of operation to allow for a nightly deep clean. Occupancy restrictions further limited economic activity. Some of America’s largest retailers suspended return policies until further notice. “Drive-thru” and “carry-out” replaced “dine-in” as the new normal at many of the more than one million restaurants across the United States.
During this economic turmoil and social upheaval, SERVPRO ushered in a new standard of cleanliness to meet the disinfecting and sanitizing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

What Is the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned Program?
This proactive viral pathogen cleaning program far exceeds general janitorial cleaning standards and practices. A pathogen is a bacterium, virus, or other microorganisms that can cause disease. Clients can trust SERVPRO of Carrollton to bring together years of experience in biochemical spill remediation and decontamination to deliver the highest standard of safety, cleanliness, and health to the community and the places where people gather for work, play, shopping, school, and worship. The program is grounded in the 3 C’s: Consult, Clean, Certify.
Consult: Each business is unique. The SERVPRO professionals tailor a custom cleaning approach based on the distinctive needs of each business or facility. The company assigns each business a personal Cleaning Protocol Specialist who knows the business’s niche. The type of industry, business type, facility size, high-frequency touchpoints, foot traffic, and congestion points are the criteria that guide the formulation of the program.
Clean: Based on the custom-tailored plan, SERVPRO of Carrollton carries out an expert deep clean utilizing the proprietary EPA-Approved Hospital-Grade cleaning solutions. The skilled cleaning technicians adhere to the cleaning and decontamination standards established by the CDC.
Certify: A shield emblem prominently displayed on the business’s front window communicates the message that the facility is Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. This sign, in conjunction with other digital emblems and collateral, represents the strong commitment to the safety and comfort of employees, customers, and the surrounding community.
Customers seeing the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned shield can enter the store, restaurant, office, or other building with confidence because the top choice in the cleanup and restoration industry has deep cleaned and sanitized the facility.
As a locally owned and operated business, SERVPRO of Carrollton is made up of a team of professionals who know how to serve the community because they are a part of the community. Therefore, SERVPRO of Carrollton has a vested interest in helping to keep the local community safe and clean.
