Has an infectious illness swept through your home or business? Are you in need of crime scene clean-up services? Are you dealing with a backed-up sewer? PuroClean of the Chagrin Valley delivers a full range of biohazard clean-up services, including the use of the PuroClean RapidDefense™ for a bacterial or viral outbreak. Safety is critical to proper biohazard clean-up. The team at PuroClean of the Chagrin Valley will carefully contain the area, remove any materials that are not salvageable, and then sanitize those that remain. If any odors remain, our trained technicians will deodorize the area, returning your property to pre-loss condition.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of the incident and affected area(s). We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the action plan.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear special personal protective equipment to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
Hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids, is handled following OSHA regulations. It’s then sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
All affected porous material will be removed following industry standards and state regulations. All other infectious material will be safely discarded as well. For non-porous surfaces, we will dry the affected area before applying a disinfectant. After allowing this to soak, we scrub, repeating the process to disinfect the space.
Typically, odors dissipate once the biohazard is cleaned and the area sanitized. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary. If so, we use hydroxyls or ozone to eliminate the odor.
RapidDefense™ is designed to clean up and protect after MRSA, Influenza, Covid-19, or Norovirus contamination.
