U.S. Pest Protection launches ‘ViroCleanse’ service


April 9, 2020



Erica Brister, president of U.S. Pest Protection, announced that her Nashville, Tenn.-based firm has launched a new commercial disinfecting service in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: ViroCleanse.

Brister noted in a press release that U.S. Pest has more commercial and residential customers than any other private pest control company in Middle Tennessee, which spurred her team to “apply our knowledge and expertise to protect our customers.

“We are doing whatever it takes to do our part, protect public health, and get America back in business,” she added.

U.S. Pest uses a two-stage process:


  1. A thorough treatment with a viricide, wiping down high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, desks, desk chairs, keyboards, phones, countertops and any hard high-touched trafficked surfaces.
  2. A broad mist application of the viricide is applied at full strength to cover surfaces that may hold bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces such walls, flooring, sides of desks, carpeting, doors and bathrooms.

U.S. Pest has a separate website just for news coverage related to the company. Among the coverage is a March 31 post about the importance of pest control to public health, an excerpt of which includes:

When performing our pest control & termite protection services, our professionals are primarily focused on the importance of conducting services for the exteriors of homes and businesses. Although we are temporarily not servicing the insides of homes at this time, if inside service is critical and a customer requests interior treatment, our pest pros are prepared and equipped with PPE (personal protective equipment) to perform interior service while implementing the appropriate social distancing practices. We will continue to provide services that are necessary to maintain the safety and sanitation of residential homes and commercial businesses.

Brister also shared a video with customers to discuss the launch of U.S. Pest’s new disinfect service, ViroCleanse. Watch the video on U.S. Pest’s YouTube here.
