“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 Certified Restoration Specialists 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 Certified Restoration Specialists 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 Centennial area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
The coronavirus pandemic is still spreading and government leaders and healthcare professionals continue to urge citizens to follow strict and particular practices for protection. PuroClean’s Centennial coronavirus cleaning practices help reduce COVID-19 outbreak related contamination. We are currently doing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning practices are available for any commercial, residential, industrial and institutional properties. Get in touch with PuroClean soon to find out more about our COVID-19 cleaning services and more.
“Person-to-Person” has been known to be the most common 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 infected person coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of people nearby. Also, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object which has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
We begin by completing a full assessment of your home or office premises. We then decide what level of containment you should have and relay the plan of action to you.
PuroClean will need to determine the workflow in order to complete your cleanup project as quickly as possible. Upon arrival to your location they will conduct a precursory inspection of the area to make sure it is ready for cleaning in order to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
While Puroclean is performing biohazard removal, special focus and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is very important. Also, our biohazard removal is addressed by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). PuroClean will section off the areas to undergo the cleaning process, using caution so as to protect customers, their families, and PuroClean employees.
PPE is a requirement that our trained professionals follow thoroughly. While on the jobsite conducting cleaning, our technicians will wear the following: A full-face respirator provides protection from splashes that may contact the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eyes. Technicians also wear Nitrile gloves, Biohazard protective coveralls and covers on their shoes.
Our trained professionals are industry-certified and use hospital grade disinfectant products that are EPA-registered. These products include towelettes, containing pharmaceutical substances, meeting OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other bacteria that lead to disease. The disinfectant solutions also protect against viruses, tuberculosis, mildew, and mold.
Our technicians typically use the following cleaning materials:
Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three techniques.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, the technicians will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then extract where applicable.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in following with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the infected articles should be laundered per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines should be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by using disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Suede and Nu-buck leather items – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Cleaned by the application of disinfectants onto the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers shall be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC technician or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate once the affected areas are clean and begin to dry. However, our trained professionals will make the determination if further 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 experienced biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, as if it were their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the likelihood of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system sanitizes and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative process we use in order to disinfect public areas as effectively as possible.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean staff 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.
