What we know about how Covid-19 Spreads

Person-to-Person Spreading

It has been widely reported that the spread of COVID-19 is prevalent by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through tiny respiratory droplets that are blown into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The tiny droplets fall into in the mouths or noses of others who are nearby. It is also possible for these droplets to be inhaled into the lungs. This is why COVID-19 is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person.

Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects

It may be possible for an individual to get the COVID-19 virus after touching an area with the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. The CDC confirms the high probability of the disease being spread in this manner.

We Prioritize Safety

It is of high importance to perform biohazard removal while also paying strict attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our skilled technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. PuroClean will also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.

Our PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against infected particles coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. PuroClean professionals also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.

Hospital-grade EPA-registered Products

Our industry-certified professionals use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard for use against diseases like the coronavirus and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.

Our Cleaning Materials for Coronavirus Calls

The cleaning materials commonly used by our technicians include:

  1. Microfiber wipes, brushes and cleaning sponges
  2. Pressure or Trigger sprayers
  3. Tape for Sealing Industrial Garbage Bags
  4. Mops and buckets
  5. Portable carpet extractor for cleaning carpets and upholstery

Disinfectant Application Procedures

Depending on the circumstances, Puroclean technicians apply EPA-registered hospital grade disinfectants using three methods.

  1. Spray application: An electric or pump sprayer is used for this process. If the surface or item is visibly free of soil and dirt, this application is usually the preferred method.
  2. Disinfecting towelettes – We use these to wipe electronics such as phones or computers. Towelettes are necessary if the surface or item has visible, light soil or dirt.
  3. Microfiber wipes/pads – These are an alternative to using pre-treated disinfecting towelettes. They are used along with cleaning products in a properly labeled spray bottle.

Process for Cleaning Porous Surfaces and Materials

Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then remove stains where applicable.

Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in accordance with the guidelines of the manufacturer.

Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated materials are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated articles are to be laundered following instructions on each label.

Tanned leather materials – We clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened towel and disinfectant sprays or disinfectant towelettes.

Nu-buck and suede leather material: These materials are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Plywood, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These particular items are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly on the surface.

HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. The interior surfaces of HVAC ductwork and components need to be cleaned in accordance with industry instructions by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.

Deodorization

Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors will disappear. Our technicians will decide, however, whether any more deodorization is required.

Our Promise

We understand that a biohazard event can be sensitive and stressful and must be handled with empathy, care and discretion. PuroClean restoration professionals are fully licensed and certified to follow all applicable laws and standards to remediate incidents safely.

RESPECTFUL: Our biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, as if it were their own.

HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the likelihood of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.

ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an effective procedure used to start the sanitization process of public places the most effective and safe way possible. Our process uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in areas nearby.

Proper Equipment Cleaning and Disinfection

Before PuroClean professionals vacate a premises that had been contaminated by the coronavirus, they will thoroughly clean all tools, PPE, and equipment that was used while performing coronavirus cleanup, using a hospital-grade, EPA-registered disinfectant.

Per the CDC, Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s services are not guaranteed to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
