“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 Emergency Restoration 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 Emergency Restoration 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 Avon Lake, OH area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and health and government leaders notify the public to take all the steps to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its progression is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of an EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning procedures can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will aid in minimizing contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office for additional information on how we can help clean your affected area.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes individuals who are close to one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets ejected when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The droplets then can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or can also be inhaled into the lungs.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the level of containment needed and notify you of the plan of action.
Initially, our technicians arrive at the job site and do an initial inspection to ensure that the area is ready for cleaning services. Then, they determine the flow of the work to do the work as efficiently as possible.
While Puroclean is performing biohazard removal, special focus and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is highly important. Also, our biohazard removal is addressed by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The technicians will section off the areas to undergo the cleaning process, using caution so as to protect customers, their families, and PuroClean employees.
All of our trained technicians are required to wear PPE. The protective equipment includes a full-face respirator which protects from any type of splashes reaching the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and eyes. Also, our technicians wear Biohazard protective coveralls, Nitrile gloves, and shoe covers.
Special towelettes are used that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and more cleaning supplies put to use by our industry certified professionals are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant by three different methods, depending on the circumstances.
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: Our professionals will thoroughly clean these items manually or apply approved disinfectants for machine cleaning for these carpets and textiles and perform extraction where necessary.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the affected articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be thoroughly cleaned after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather garments – PuroClean will clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth and disinfectant solutions or disinfectant towelettes.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These garments are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Cleaned by the application of disinfectant solution right on the surface.
HVAC System: Industry guidelines should be obeyed for the cleaning of HVAC internal ducts surfaces and components; by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. Additionally, the outside ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be washed using a disinfectant solution.
Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and starts 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 experienced biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, 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: Our RapidDefense system sanitizes and even reduces virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative process that we use in order to disinfect public places the most effective way possible.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean staff will perform a full and complete washing of all equipment, tools, and PPE that were used for the coronavirus cleanup using an EPA-registered hospital-grade 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.
