“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 Damage Experts 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 Damage Experts 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 Cleveland, TN area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to grow and health and government leaders notify people 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 help reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Call your local PuroClean office for additional information on how we can help clean your property.
Individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are at the highest risk of spreading COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets projected through coughing or sneezing produce miniscule drops that may land on the nose or mouth or be inhaled into the lungs of someone nearby. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads rapidly. Therefore, it is believed that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
According to the CDC, it may be possible that a person can contract COVID-19 by coming into contact with a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your property. We will determine the level of containment needed and notify you of the plan of action.
When we arrive at your home or business we’ll do an inspection to confirm the area is ready for PuroClean’s cleaning services. We will plan the flow of work and perform the cleaning as efficiently as possible.
It is of high importance to work with biohazard removal while also paying strict attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure your personal safety. They also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
PPE is required to be worn by our cleanup technicians. This equipment consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, and a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection from splashing that could reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Special towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard to fight diseases like the coronavirus and numerous more diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and other cleaning supplies put to use by our industry certified professionals are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
EPA-registered as well as hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this process. Depending on the circumstances, we commonly use the following methods:
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: PuroClean technicians will thoroughly 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 per instructions on every label.
Tanned leather materials – We clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened towel and disinfectant sprays or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – These should be cleaned according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
Plywood, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These materials are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly on 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 cleaner who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry standards. Also, externally located ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers are to be cleaned with disinfectant cleaners.
Typically, when the infected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine if further deodorization is necessary.
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 professionally and respectfully, 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 sanitizes and even reduces virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure we use in order to disinfect public places the most effective way possible.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had contaminated, 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. 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.
We had a water leak in our back offices. They came out within the hour, moved everything, brought huge fans in, and came back and checked on them within that time frame. Those machines controlled the […]
