“Coronavirus” is an umbrella term for many types of viruses that have been known to cause respiratory diseases in both people and animals. The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19; previously 2019-nCoV) is a new strain that has been recently discovered and publicized worldwide. PuroClean Property Restoration - Arlington uses the PuroClean RapidDefense™ system to provide deep mitigation cleaning in areas compromised by a Coronavirus or Influenza outbreak. Using this process, the team at PuroClean Property Restoration - Arlington will carefully contain the area and will minimize the risk of pathogens spreading using The Environmental Protection Agency-registered (EPA) products. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your Arlington area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the coronavirus pandemic keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are speaking to the public daily, asking that everyone practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective method to slow the virus from spreading is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These particular cleaning procedures can be beneficial for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Arlington coronavirus cleaning services can promote a drastic reduction of contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our all of the services we offer.
Individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are the most likely to spread COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets projected through coughing or sneezing produce miniscule drops that may land on the nose or mouth or be inhaled into the lungs of someone nearby. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads rapidly. Therefore, it is thought that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be contracted when an individual physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, then touches their nose or mouth. The CDC reports that this type of spreading is highly likely.
PuroClean will initially conduct a complete inspection of your home or office. We then make a determination on the level of containment required and speak to you about the plan of action.
Our technicians need to determine the workflow in order to finish your cleanup project as soon as possible. When they first arrive at your location PuroClean will conduct a preliminary inspection of the area to make sure it is ready for cleaning in order to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
It is key to perform biohazard abatement with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained staff wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against airborne bacteria coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. They also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Special towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard to fight diseases like the coronavirus and other diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and other cleaning supplies used by our industry certified professionals are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectant products.
The most common cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Puroclean implements three methods when using these disinfectants. Depending on the circumstances, technicians apply hospital grade, EPA-registered disinfectants in one of these three ways:
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: PuroClean technicians will thoroughly clean these items manually or apply appropriate disinfectants for machine cleaning for these carpets and textiles and perform extraction where necessary.
Natural fabric rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: These items are to be cleaned in exact accordance with the manufacturer’s labeled instructions.
For the disinfectant of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the contaminated articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be thoroughly cleaned after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather materials – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – These are to be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleansed by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the items.
HVAC system – HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and begins to dry, the odors go away. Our trained professionals will decide, however, whether any more deodorization is required.
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 certified biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item respectfully and professionally, as if it were their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure used to start the sanitization process of public areas in the most effective way possible. Our system uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
Before PuroClean technicians vacate a premises that was 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.
