COVID-19 Decontamination Response and Cleaning

Our company has played an important role in supporting customers in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Since March 2020, US Ecology has performed over 2,200 decontamination responses and deep cleanings across the U.S. with known or probable exposure to SARS-CoV-2.  We are a leader in the emergency response industry with experience in hazardous and nonhazardous spill response, natural disasters, biohazard response and played a large part in the fight against SARS, H1N1, Bird Flu and other pandemics.   

US Ecology can assist schools with tailored COVID-19 Safe Operations Programs to protect returning faculty, students and staff.  Our services and expertise will help provide peace of mind that campuses are safe, secure and that any future known or suspected Coronavirus exposure can be mitigated quickly. US Ecology’s top priority is the safety and protection of faculty, students and staff, as well as our crews, while limiting the impact to facility operations during the decontamination process. 

We recognize that each campus is unique and work closely with team members from each institution to develop a customized plan including:

  • Phased area decontamination allowing students and staff to remain on property, minimizing impact and disruption
  • Site-specific safety plan detailing each activity, timeline, equipment, protocols and safety measures
  • Selection of chemicals based on setting – US Ecology uses specialty, highly effective disinfectants with limited or no odor
  • Cost effective solutionswith full transparency (no hidden costs or fees)
