“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 Disaster Response 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 Disaster Response 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 Cary area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rise and health and government leaders notify the public to take appropriate precautions to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its spread is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of an EPA-registered disinfectant. These methods of cleaning 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.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes between people who are close to one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets becoming airborne when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of those who are nearby or can also be inhaled into the lungs.
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 high probability of the disease being spread in this manner.
We first will come in and provide a full assessment of your office or home. We decide on the level of containment required and discuss the plan of action with you.
First, our technicians arrive at the job site 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 cleaning as efficiently as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard abatement with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also contain 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 a requirement. Puroclean technicians wear a full-face respirator to guard against splashes coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. The technicians also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Special towelettes are used that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard to fight diseases like the coronavirus and numerous more diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and more cleaning supplies used by our industry certified professionals are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.
The cleaning materials commonly used by our technicians include:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant by three different methods, depending on the particular needs.
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: Our Technicians will clean these items manually 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 fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs need cleaning that is in following with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated materials are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated pieces are to be laundered following instructions on each label.
Tanned leather materials – We can wash these materials by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly to the surface.
HVAC System: Industry guidelines should be obeyed for the cleaning of internal HVAC ducts surfaces and components; by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. Additionally, the external ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be cleaned with the aid of a disinfectant solution.
It is common for odors to dissipate once the infected areas are clean and begin to dry. However, the PuroClean technicians will decide if more cleaning and 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 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 likelihood of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system disinfects and even reduces virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure that we use in order to sanitize public areas the most effective way possible.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had affected, the PuroClean technicians will perform a extensive and complete washing 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.
