There is currently no evidence that household pets can be infected with or transmit the Coronavirus. However, the CDC recommends having limited contact with household pets and other animals until more information is known about the virus.
Therefore, to protect other people and yourself, the CDC recommends that you restrict contact with pets if you are sick with COVID-19, just as you would restrict your contact with other people.
For now, pet owners in the U.S. don’t need to do anything other than follow normal health precautions such as washing their hands with soap and water after contact with any animal. To reduce the spread of germs, you may consider wiping your pet’s paws when they come in and out of the house with a paw cleaner and paw wipes. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Based on the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our technicians will provide intensified cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces, high touch-points, and any other areas that may have been impacted by the virus. This process includes the use of EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectants for the cleaning of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) contamination and other viral respiratory illnesses in commercial, institutional, and home environments to help in reducing the risk to your family and your pets.
Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like Coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the Coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s services are not guaranteed to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
