“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 Property 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 Property 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 Carol Stream 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 people to take necessary measures to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its spread is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, while also using an EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning procedures can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will limit contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office with any questions on how we can help clean your affected area.
“Person-to-Person” is thought to be the most widely known way COVID-19 spreads between people. This takes place 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.
As stated by the CDC, there is a possibility that someone can contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object where the virus exists and then placing their hand on their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
We first will come in and provide a full assessment of your office or home. We determine the level of containment needed and discuss the plan of action with you.
Initially, our technicians arrive at the premises and do a quick walkthrough to ensure that the property is ready for cleaning services. Then, they determine the flow of the work to do the work as efficiently as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with strict attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also identify the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees out of harm’s way as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is required. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against splashes coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. They also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Our extensively trained and certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, such as towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three methods.
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: Our professionals will clean these items manually or apply appropriate disinfectants for machine washing for these carpets and textiles and conduct needed extraction where necessary.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated items are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated pieces are to be laundered following instructions on every label.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by utilizing disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These materials are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly to 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 cleaning specialist who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry standards. Also, externally located ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers will be cleaned with disinfectant cleaners.
Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors will disappear. Our technicians will decide, however, whether any more 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 certified 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, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
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 sanitize public places the most effective way possible.
Prior to leaving a site that was once contaminated with the coronavirus, our technicians will do a thorough cleaning of all tools, equipment, and PPE used in the cleaning process for coronavirus 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.
