Turner Pest Control launches service, gives back to first responders

Turner Pest Control, an Anticimex company, added TurnerClean Disinfection Misting Service, a new indoor treatment that disinfects homes and businesses by killing bacteria and pathogens, including those linked to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The TurnerClean service uses Nisus DSV, a cleaning agent known to be effective against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. Turner Pest Control’s service offers a broad-spectrum disinfection misting as well as a hard surface wipe down that allows technicians to quickly disinfect large areas, including surfaces and inaccessible areas.

As part of the company’s community outreach, Turner Pest Control, based in Jacksonville, Fla., will provide the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office with complimentary cleanings for police cars and homes of officers who have contracted COVID-19. The company will also provide a weekly sanitation treatment at sheriff’s office fitness facilities and donate cleaning products to maintain sanitation between services.

“We are grateful for this generous donation from Turner Pest Control,” said Officer Derrick Lewis with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. “Their support for our officers and administrative team helps our team members keep their full focus on serving this community.”

Turner Pest Control is offering the service to a wide range of commercial business settings, including educational institutions, property management, manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, health care facilities, hospitality, restaurants and recreation.

“Keeping the public safe as we reopen is of utmost importance,” said Bill Talon, president of Turner Pest Control. “For us, to be able to offer this service to our local community is a wonderful way to provide business owners and residential property owners peace of mind during this uncertain time.”

Trained TurnerClean technicians apply the disinfectant to walls, floors, structures and equipment. The service is available as both a one-time treatment and a recurring service.

Rick Hastings, a commercial pest control technician for Turner Pest Control’s Jacksonville South Branch, has done a majority of the TurnerClean services and was the first to volunteer for the work, according to Technical Director Wade Wilson, ACE.

“Much like my military service to our nation, I find it an honor to help protect our community during these challenging times,” Hastings said.
