“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 Restoration Specialists of Charleston 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 Restoration Specialists of Charleston 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 Charleston, SC area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the The COVID-19 outbreak keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are publicly addressing the world daily, asking that all people practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective practice to slow the infection rate is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning on all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These specialized cleaning procedures can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Charleston, SC coronavirus cleaning services can help drastically reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our all of the services we offer.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets ejected when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The 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 possibility 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.
Initially, Puroclean professionals will arrive at your location and perform a preliminary inspection to ensure the area is ready for our cleaning services. Afterwards the workflow is determined by our technicians, in order to do the required work as expeditiously as possible.
While Puroclean is performing 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). 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 required to be worn by PuroClean professionals. The equipment worn includes Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, and a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection against splashing that would possibly reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Our extensively trained and certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The most common cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Puroclean uses three methods when using these disinfectants. Depending on the circumstances, our workers apply hospital grade, EPA-registered disinfectants in one of these three methods:
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – PuroClean professionals will either manually clean or, for machine cleaning, they will use approved disinfectants compatible with the cleaning of textiles and carpets and then remove spots where applicable.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs need cleaning that is in following with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the affected articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather materials – We can clean these materials by cleaning the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Washed by the application of disinfectant solution onto the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. HVAC internal duct surfaces and components need to be cleaned in accordance with industry instructions by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate once the infected areas are clean and begin to dry. However, the PuroClean technicians will make the determination if more cleaning and deodorizing 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 proven products approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an effective procedure used to start the sanitization process of public areas the most effective and safe way possible. Our process uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in areas nearby.
Before leaving a site that was once infected with the coronavirus, our team will do a complete 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.
