Our Commitment to Help Your People & Facilities

As we all work together to overcome challenges presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Danforth would like to reaffirm our commitment to the health and safety of our customers and our communities. Our team is ready and able to provide valuable support services to make a positive impact on the health of your people and the environments in which they work. The following are some critical industry recommendations to combat community spread of COVID-19 and a description of services Danforth can offer our customers during these difficult times.


Facility Actions to Consider
Temporary Facility Shutdown – Decontamination of occupied spaces, plumbing/HVAC facility needs for a temporary shutdown.


Air Filtration – Your building has been deep cleaned to ensure all surface areas of occupied rooms have been sanitized, but have you changed out your filters? Increasing filter change frequencies, installing hospital grade HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration where possible and tightening up filter framing systems can help to improve protection for occupants.


Duct and System Cleaning – You’ve been sanitizing your surfaces, but what about the air ducts? HVAC systems are a breeding ground for bacteria and other microbes to continue to endanger your facilities. Our NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) Certified Cleaners are available to clean air systems and equipment of contaminants. As an extra layer of protection, coating services are available as well to inhibit microbial colony growth.


High Intensity UV Disinfection – As an additional layer of protection from COVID—19, in-duct UV systems can be installed to disinfect air as it passes through the HVAC system. UV disinfection reduces airborne infectious microorganisms that can cause the spread of illness and decreases instances of people becoming sick.


Plumbing – The COVID-19 pathogens could remain in your pipes through human waste contamination. Be proactive to purge these pathogens with high pressure sewer jetting and drain cleaning services.


Refrigeration Services – It is vital that cold storage units and refrigeration coils in food service production, pharmaceutical labs and blood banks are fully operational. We provide proactive maintenance for commercial walk-in coolers, freezers and ice machines on most major brands your facility may have.


For the People Actions to Consider
Skilled Trades/Manpower Support Assistance for Your Facility – We have the resources to assist you with manpower solutions during this unique time. Whether you need temporary staffing, installation or repair work, Danforth has the people available to assist your needs.


Pipefitters & Steamfitters | Welders | Sheet Metal Workers | Plumbers | Balancers

Emergency Plumbing/HVAC Service – Varying demands on facilities during these uncertain times can cause a great deal of strain on systems and people. We have a full team of highly skilled HVAC and plumbing service technicians available throughout New York State to perform interim support, preventive maintenance or 24/7 emergency services as needed.


Environmental Services – Maintaining proper room and equipment pressurization, balancing and operation is critical to maintaining a healthy facility and personnel at all times, especially during these times of unprecedented health concerns. Our team can verify proper operation of critical systems using NEBB (National Environmental Balancing Bureau) Certified Testing and Balancing standards.


Turnkey Isolation Containment Room Units – Bag in/Bag out unit, fan, HEPA filter, bags and security straps.
