Virus Decontamination and Protection in Akron, OH

Viruses are germs that invade living cells where they multiply, causing a breakdown of the cells they inhabit. It’s a microorganism that is smaller than a bacterium that cannot grow or reproduce apart from a living cell. A virus invades living cells and uses their chemical machinery to keep itself alive and to replicate itself. Viruses cause many common human infections and are also responsible for a number of rare diseases. They are infectious agents of small size and simple composition that can multiply only in living cells of animals, plants, or bacteria.

Not all viral diseases are contagious, meaning they cannot be spread from person to person. Contagious viral infections can include the common cold, flu, or other respiratory infections.

Viral infections include:

  1. Infections transferred person-to-person:
    • COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases (the common cold, flu, etc.)
    • Hepatitis, Ebola – spread through bodily fluids
    • Warts, measles, chickenpox, and other contagious skin infections or rashes
  2. Infections transferred by insects, animals, or food, water, or other sources:
    • Gastrointestinal (stomach flu) – spread through contaminated food or water
    • Viral diseases spread by insects (viral meningitis, dengue fever, yellow fever, H1N1)
    • Viruses spread through the bite of infected animals or bugs (polio, rabies, etc.)

If you feel that your home or office has been impacted by the COVID-19 or any other virus or infection, contact your local PuroClean professionals. Cleaning your home after it has been compromised with the coronavirus or any other infectious disease is an important step to keeping yourself and your family safe. Our IICRC certified offices are trained to handle virus decontamination and protection with discretion. We will restore your property to its pre-event condition.

In the time leading up to the 2020 worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, many people cleaned for appearance only. Following the pandemic, and the most recent Delta variant, cleaning has become more of a health focused necessity, first and foremost.

Contact PuroClean today, your Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (330) 800-4300 for decontamination and protection of viruses. There is a risk of exposure when working with virus protection and decontamination. For this reason, it is imperative to employ a reputable and proven company with trained professionals. There are many reasons to do this, but by far the most important reason is to avoid the dangers of liability from improper cleaning methods or even risking spreading pathogens that are potentially contagious.

Following proper training and safety protocols is crucial for technicians who handle potentially hazardous materials. Each time the technicians handle this material, they are doing so at extreme risk. The protocol adherence is not only for their personal safety, but for the safety of those who will work or live in the property after biohazard and other necessary cleaning is finished.

Coronavirus Cleanup

In an effort to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to rise globally, health and government officials maintain that the public must take necessary measures to protect themselves. One of the best ways to slow the progress of the coronavirus is to perform deep mitigation cleaning. PuroClean’s team of highly trained IICRC professionals uses the RapidDefense™ system to provide deep mitigation cleaning in areas compromised by a coronavirus or Influenza, or any other respiratory infection impacting your property. Using this process, the team will carefully contain the area and will minimize the risk of pathogens spreading using hospital-grade Environmental Protection Agency-registered (EPA) products. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care. These methods of cleaning can be utilized for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Call your local PuroClean office for more information on how we can help clean your property.
