“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 of East Aurora 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 of East Aurora 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 Bennett area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and health and government officials notify individuals to take all the steps to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its progress is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, while also using an EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning procedures can be an option 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 more information on how we can help clean your affected area.
Individuals that 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 can land on the nose or mouth or be breathed into the lungs of someone nearby. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads rapidly. Therefore, it is believed that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
It may be possible for people to get the COVID-19 virus after touching a surface with the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. The CDC confirms the possibility of the disease spreading in this manner.
We start out by completing a full inspection of your home or office premises. We will then decide what level of containment you should have and pass on the plan of action to you.
Initially, Puroclean technicians will arrive at your home or business and perform a preliminary inspection to ensure the area is prepared for our cleaning services. Afterwards the workflow is determined by PuroClean, in order to complete the project as quickly as possible.
While Puroclean is working on biohazard removal, full attention 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.
PPE is required to be worn by our cleanup technicians. The equipment worn consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection from splashing that could reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Our industry-certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard for use against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Puroclean uses three methods for applying disinfectants. Depending on the circumstances, our workers apply hospital grade, EPA-registered disinfectants in one of these three methods:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean will clean these items by hand or by machine cleaning. Approved disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; extraction will be done where needed.
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 disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather materials – We can wash these materials by cleaning the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather garments – These should be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Plywood, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These materials are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly on the surface.
HVAC systems: The internal duct surfaces of the HVAC system and components should be cleaned by a licensed HVAC contractor or a duct cleaner who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry standards. Additionally, external ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers will be cleaned with disinfectant solution.
Normally, when the affected area has been cleaned and begins to dry, the odors will disappear. 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 respectfully and professionally, as if it were our 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 that is used to start the sanitization process of public areas the most effective way possible. Our system uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in areas nearby.
Before PuroClean technicians vacate a property that had been contaminated by the coronavirus, they will thoroughly clean all tools, PPE, and cleaning items that were 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.
