The RIA, IICRC, and AIHA have released a report urging contractors to no longer use phrases like, “Clean and disinfect,” but to now say, “…they perform services such as ‘wipe surfaces’ and ‘apply a disinfectant’.”

This of course was to circumvent any misunderstanding between client and contractor and to avoid possible litigation. We suspect we will be hearing similar language for sewage remediation and other contamination and antimicrobial-type jobs.
