“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 Water, Fire, and Mold 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 Water, Fire, and Mold 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 Columbus, OH area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
The coronavirus pandemic is still spreading and world leaders in government and health agencies continue to urge all individuals to follow strict and particular measures for protection.

We are now offering deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using disinfectants that are EPA registered. Our COVID-19 cleaning services are available for any commercial, residential, industrial and institutional customers. Get in touch with PuroClean today to find out more about our COVID-19 cleaning services and more.
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 becoming airborne when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The droplets can land in the mouths or noses of those who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by coming into contact with a surface or object which has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
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.
PuroClean will need to determine the workflow in order to finish your cleanup project as soon as possible. When they first arrive at your location they will conduct a preliminary inspection of your property to make sure it is ready for cleaning so as to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
It is of extreme importance to perform biohazard removal while also paying strict attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our skilled technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
All of the PuroClean professionals are required to wear PPE. This particular protective equipment includes a full-face respirator that provides protection from any type of splashes reaching the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and eyes. Also, our technicians wear Biohazard protective coveralls, Nitrile gloves, and covers over their shoes.
Our extensively trained and certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, such as towelettes, containing 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 cleaning materials our technicians normally work with include:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant using three methods, depending on the circumstances.
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean will clean these items manually or by machine cleaning. Appropriate disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; extraction will be done where applicable.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the contaminated articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by utilizing disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Suede and Nu-buck leather garments – These are to be cleaned according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by applying the disinfectant solution directly to the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry instructions by a licensed HVAC technician or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
Typically, once the infected area is cleaned and starts to dry, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine if further 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 their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system disinfects 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 places as effectively as possible.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean technicians will perform a full 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.
