“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 Services 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 Services 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 Birmingham area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
An extremely effective way to battle the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, as well as the use of EPA-registered disinfectants. This type of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. Right now, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government officials and healthcare experts to urge the public to take every available precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services we offer assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Contact your local PuroClean office for additional information about how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
“Person-to-Person” has appeared to be the most widely known way COVID-19 spreads between people. This occurs mainly with those who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Droplets produced by the respiratory system when an individual infected with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of people nearby. Furthermore, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
It may be possible for someone 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 possibility of the disease being spread in this manner.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your property. We will determine the containment level needed and inform you of our action plan.
When we arrive at your home or business we’ll do a walkthrough to confirm the area is ready for PuroClean’s cleaning services. We will then determine the flow of work and perform the tasks as efficiently as possible.
It is of extreme importance to conduct biohazard removal while also paying close 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 loved ones or employees safe as well.
PPE is a requirement that our trained professionals follow thoroughly. While on the jobsite performing cleaning, all technicians will wear these PPE items: A full-face respirator provides protection from splashes that may reach the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eyes. Our professionals will also wear Nitrile gloves, Biohazard protective coveralls and shoe covers.
Our extensively trained and certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The most common cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
EPA-registered and hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this cleaning phase. Depending on the project needs, we commonly use these methods:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean will clean these items by hand or by machine cleaning. Appropriate disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; extraction will be done where applicable.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Disinfecting linens, clothing and personal fabrics: The instructions on each label should be followed when laundering the contaminated items. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines after washing contaminated clothing.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean will clean these materials by using disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – These should be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by applying the disinfectant solution directly to the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner.
Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors will disappear. Our trained professionals will decide, however, whether any further deodorization is required.
We understand that a biohazard event can be stressful and sensitive 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 products that are approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an effective procedure that is used to start the sanitization process of public areas in the most effective and safe way possible. Our process uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean technicians will perform a full and complete cleansing 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.
