EnviroVantage becomes New Hampshire’s only firm qualified to eliminate bacteria such as MRSA in schools and public buildings
EnviroVantage Inc., a leader in the safe handling of hazardous materials at the building and historic reconstruction sites, has received state licensing from New Hampshire’s Department of Environmental Services to fight microbial contaminations with the powerful cleaning agents specified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EnviroVantage is New Hampshire’s only firm licensed to use EPA-registered chemicals to remove microbial organisms such as the highly contagious, drug-resistant bacteria MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), among the nation’s leading causes of school and hospital acquired infections.
The approved chemicals, which include hundreds of antimicrobial sprays, biocides, fungicides, and sporicides are far stronger than common cleaning products and disinfectants. When mishandled or applied incorrectly, such chemicals can be health hazards in themselves.
“In our age of super-viruses and bacteria such as MRSA, proper application of biocides is crucial for keeping schools and buildings safe,” says EnviroVantage founder and president Scott Knightly. “Our specialized microbial cleaning services (used in conjunction with a building’s janitorial staff) eliminate possible health risks, as well as safety and liability issues for schools and towns.”
EnviroVantage, Inc. is a regional leader in the safe handling and removal of hazardous materials (including lead paint, asbestos, and mold) found at building sites on projects requiring renovation, demolition, or historic reconstruction. EnviroVantage created the standard procedures for lead paint removal and staffs experts on every major contaminant found in buildings.
