“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 Professional 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 Professional 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 Brunswick area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
An extremely effective way to slow the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using 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 officials to compel 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 to find out how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
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 caused by coughing or sneezing produce tiny droplets that can land on the nose or mouth or be breathed into the lungs of another person. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads quickly. Therefore, it is believed that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
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 spreading in this manner.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of our action plan.
PuroClean will need to determine the workflow in order to finish your cleanup project as quickly as possible. Upon arrival to your location they 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.
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.
All of our trained technicians are required to wear PPE. The protective equipment includes a full-face respirator that provides protection from any type of splashes contacting the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and eyes. Also, our technicians wear Biohazard protective coveralls, Nitrile gloves, and shoe covers.
Our industry certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials commonly used by our technicians include:
Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three methods.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants compatible with the cleaning of textiles and carpets and then remove spots where applicable.
Natural fabric rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: These items are to be cleaned in exact accordance with the manufacturer’s labeled instructions.
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 following washing contaminated clothing.
Tanned leather garments – We clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth and disinfectant solutions or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather items – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Washed by the application of disinfectant solution right on the surface.
HVAC System: Industry regulations should be followed for the cleaning of HVAC internal ducts surfaces and components; by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. Also, the external ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be washed using a disinfectant solution.
Typically, when the infected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors will go away. However, our crew will decide when further deodorization is necessary.
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 products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense process sanitizes and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure that we use in order to disinfect public areas the most effective way possible.
Before leaving a site that has been infected with the coronavirus, our team will do a thorough cleaning of all equipment and tools used in the coronavirus cleanup with 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.
