LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Businesses are cleaning their facilities now more than ever, but what cleaning solution actually gets the jobs done to kill coronavirus?

Monsoon Remediation might have the answer. Alan Felts, the cleaning company’s director, says Monsoon’s product, MDF500, kills a laundry list of viruses and pathogens, including the coronavirus.

“We all deserve to have a safe, healthy environment to be in,” he said.

Felts says MDF500 is unique to the area. It’s biodegradable, EPA approved, and non-toxic, and it makes cleaning your home or business a quick fix.

“It’s an amazing product,” Felts said. “We can literally go into any situation. We can do cars, buildings, houses, anything like that where we go in and it’s habitable and healthy and it’s an environment that you won’t get sick in.”

“It’s amazing, for real,” added Shannon Hoover, one of the employees at Monsoon Remediation. “I mean, it makes me feel safe, especially since I’m around it a lot, and I know that I’m still clean at the end of the day.”

As one can imagine, the recent coronavirus crisis has added extra business to the cleaning company.

“It’s such an uncertain time,” said Felts. “We don’t know how much is hype or how much is reality, but the secure part that we feel is that no matter which it is, we can help ensure that people are safe.”

“You know, you’ve got to worry about where you’re going and the places that you go,” Hoover said, “but when you come home, you know you’re safe. You ain’t got to worry about nothing infecting you or getting you sick because it’s clean. It’s sterile.”

Already Monsoon Remediation has worked with local law enforcement, in Lynchburg, as well as the courthouse and other first responders’ bases of operations. They’ve also offered to service places like Lynchburg Daily Bread and the Salvation Army free of charge, which would give peace of mind to those who utilize the vital services provided by these organizations.

“They won’t be spreading it (coronavirus). The people coming through won’t be spreading it, and we will continue this service as long as we can,” said Felts. “And Monsoon guarantees that, that any of the organizations we are able to help can continue to serve the public as long as possible.”
