A virus is a germ, a microorganism smaller than a bacterium that can’t reproduce or grow apart from a living cell. The germs known as viruses attack living cells and there they can multiply and cause a breakdown of the cells in which they’re living. Viruses invade living cells and use the cell’s chemical tools to keep living and to replicate itself. Many well known human infections are caused by viruses, which are also responsible for a number of rare diseases. Viruses are infectious, small in size, and have a simple composition that multiplies solely in an animal, plant, or bacteria’s living cells.
Not all viral diseases are contagious, meaning they cannot be spread from person to person. Contagious viral infections can include the common cold, flu, or other respiratory infections.
Viral infections include:
If you feel that your home or office has been impacted by the COVID-19 or any other virus or infection, contact your local PuroClean professionals. Cleaning your home after it has been compromised with the coronavirus or any other infectious disease is an important step to keeping yourself and your family safe. Our IICRC certified offices are trained to handle virus decontamination and protection with discretion. We will restore your property to its pre-event condition.
In the time leading up to the 2020 worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, many people cleaned for appearance only. Following the pandemic, and the most recent Delta variant, cleaning has become more of a health focused necessity, first and foremost.
Virus decontamination and protection involves a risk of exposure. In spite of this, it is important to hire a trained professional so as not to risk the danger of liability from improper cleanup efforts or the risk of spreading potentially contagious pathogens. Call PuroClean, the Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (573) 468-8797, for your virus decontamination and protection needs.
Every occasion in which PuroClean technicians come into contact with potentially hazardous materials, they are doing so at great risk. Therefore, following the correct training and safety procedures is top priority. It’s important not just for their personal safety, but for the safety of those who will occupy the premises after this work and any other necessary remediation is complete.
In an effort to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to rise globally, health and government officials maintain that the public must take necessary measures to protect themselves. One of the best ways to slow the progress of the coronavirus is to perform deep mitigation cleaning. PuroClean’s team of highly trained IICRC professionals uses the RapidDefense™ system to provide deep mitigation cleaning in areas compromised by a coronavirus or Influenza, or any other respiratory infection impacting your property. Using this process, the team will carefully contain the area and will minimize the risk of pathogens spreading using hospital-grade Environmental Protection Agency-registered (EPA) products. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care. These methods of cleaning can be utilized for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Call your local PuroClean office for more information on how we can help clean your property.
As with any type of property damage, PuroClean restoration professionals ensure that their actions are respectful to the confidentiality and sensitivity of the services being offered with all parties involved.
All PuroClean owners and their technicians will conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism while showing empathy to any and all materially interested people when dealing with traumatic situations. Showing extra compassion and empathy is a very important part of dealing with virus decontamination and protection services, COVID-19, biohazard, trauma and crime scene cleanup, or any other respiratory or infectious diseases.
PuroClean’s RapidDefense™ is the best way to provide a fine detailed cleaning, which includes the application of EPA approved hospital-grade disinfectants in public areas. Our system helps stop the spread of pathogen-based illnesses, such as Influenza, Norovirus, and the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The process uses Environmental Protection Agency-registered, safe products to provide up to three months of protection against pathogens. Contact us before an outbreak occurs to help you create a clean environment.
PuroClean trained technicians utilize state-of-the-art equipment and procedures to properly restore damages. Therefore, when you’re in need of biohazard restoration services, call PuroClean’s professionals to restore and clean the affected premises.
