Indy company invited to White House to talk coronavirus

Among those leaning on the expertise of Indy business Total Restoration is the White House.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - In the past few days, there have been a few more calls coming into Total Restoration.

“We’ve already had two or three school systems that are very interested and then obviously the colleges, we’re speaking with multiple colleges,” said owner Cleve Morton.

The company specializes in emergency cleanup, but with concerns over the coronavirus, there has been more of an interest with help sanitizing and disinfecting.

Among those leaning on the expertise of Total Restoration is the White House.

“As a kid from the east side of Indianapolis, to be standing a couple of doors down from where the president and vice president are doing business is very humbling,” said Morton.

Owner Cleve Morton just returned from Washington, where he sat in with members of the vice president’s executive team tackling coronavirus.

“We talked to them about not only the coronavirus outbreak, things maybe we can do to help maybe our local and federal government,” said Morton.

Morton says White House officials think any significant spread of coronavirus in Indiana is still weeks away, but there is concern about all the travel, especially during spring break.

As of Thursday, there have been no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Indiana.
