a start with a gold, glittering spiral of dust

Allied Restoration Services Inc. has become the first company in the Southern California region to receive accreditation from the Global Risk and Advisory Council (GBAC) – an organization that helps businesses prepare for, respond to, and recover from biological threats, and biohazard situations and real-time crises including the COVID-19 pandemic. The GBAC STAR accreditation program is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation for facilities making its recipients the gold standard of clean, according to a press release from Allied Restoration Services.

To achieve GBAC STAR accreditation, Allied Restoration successfully demonstrated compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.

“As Southern California’s leading restoration company, we strive for all achievements and accreditations that help us help our community,” said Allied Restoration’s Founder & CEO O.P. Almaraz. “We want to become the gold standard of restoration and help businesses and homes recover from and prepare for any disaster.”

With more than 26 years of experience in restoration, decontamination and disinfection of bio-hazards, Allied Restoration has expanded its service to assist in cleaning, planning and deploying rapid response for COVID-19, becoming an expert in virus-related mitigation in Southern California, including Los Angeles, Ventura, San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange Counties.

“GBAC STAR accreditation empowers facility owners and managers to assure workers, customers and key stakeholders that they have proven systems in place to maintain clean and healthy environments,” said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “By taking this important step to pursue GBAC STAR, Allied Restoration has received third-party validation that it follows strict protocols for biorisk situations, thereby demonstrating its preparedness and commitment to operating safely.”
