The world is facing a pandemic, and its name is coronavirus. According to the World Health Organization, coronavirus, (also called “CoV” or “COVID-19”), is actually a large family of viruses that cause a range of illnesses. We’re not talking about one disease; we’re talking about a range of diseases.
Coronavirus symptoms vary in severity, deaths have occurred, and the virus and its strains are spreading across the world. And we’ll talk more about that in a minute. But first, let’s focus right away on what you can do regarding infection prevention and how you might avoid symptoms for you and your family.
Coronaviridae refers to a family of viral strains commonly known as coronavirus. And though scientists are scrambling to create a vaccine for the virus it takes a long time to test and then get official approval. That’s why it’s so important to prevent infection and to kill germs and bacteria before they can infect you and your loved ones.
A little-known fact is that, because viruses are living organisms, if enough heat is applied to them, they will die. High-Heat will kill even extremely tiny microorganisms as well as bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants that are floating around in the air or resting on surfaces. That's why medical professionals use heat to sterilize surgical equipment and other medical devices.
The administration of heat to any space has been clinically proven to kill viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi, etc. The use of high heat is a comprehensive, effective, and concise method of sterilization and infection prevention.
Heat treatments began as a method of highly competent and aggressive bed bug treatment. But clinical trials involving increasing the temperature and duration of heat treatment was also found to eliminate viral organisms. For example, if a coronavirus germ is exposed to temperatures of 55°C/131°F for at least two minutes, it will die.
Aggressive heat treatments are the answer to the common question, “What kills viruses naturally?” No more spraying caustic cleaners and disinfectants or viricides in interior rooms of homes, in office buildings, hospitals, schools, planes, trains, buses, etc. Wherever people gather in an interior space (not outside), extreme heat applications can effectively and safely kill virus contaminations and other harmful bacteria.
At B.B.D.S., our team of licensed technicians conducts antimicrobial treatments on all forms of interior spaces from bedrooms to airplanes, office buildings to schools, etc. We use our equipment to emit 500,000 BTUs or more of heat into a treatment zone, effectively raising the temperature of that space to a range between 160°F to 185°F. We hold that temperature as long as needed (sometimes up to 3 hours if necessary) until our thermal imaging indicates that every surface and corner of the treatment area has been heated to the required temperature. In doing so, we kill germs and use heat as an effective, mess-free, non-toxic, all-natural viricide.
Here is a list of just some of the locations our B.B.D.S. technicians can apply heat treatments as a solution to coronavirus infection control:

You know for sure that you don’t want you or anyone you know to experience coronavirus symptoms. And we have the equipment and skilled technicians to protect your home or business from the spreading illness. But you may still have some questions about the coronavirus. We did our research right away so we could start protecting homes, businesses, and other establishments from infection. The virus has taken the media, and the world, by storm. There's no doubt about that. It all started just a few weeks ago in Wuhan, China, and now the virus has made its touchdown in the U.S. Sure, there haven't been many deaths yet, but we need to take the necessary precautions to ensure the illness does not spread.
The CDC coronavirus definition is as such. “Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with this new virus (named SARS-CoV-2).”
When asking “What is corona disease?” it’s important to understand that coronavirus is not a new illness, merely it is a new strain of the disease which seems to have developed recently, as a result of the Wuhan, China outbreak.
Coronavirus is a new viral infection that scientists, viral experts, and epidemiologists are scrambling to understand. Believe us, you're not the only one asking, “What is Coronavirus?” But here are four quick facts of what we do know about the pandemic so far:
