“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. The Woodlands - PuroClean Mitigation Services 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 The Woodlands - PuroClean Mitigation Services 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 Conroe area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
A very good way to limit the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using EPA-registered disinfectants. This particular kind of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. Currently, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government officials and healthcare experts to compel the public to take every possible precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services PuroClean performs assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Get in touch with your local PuroClean office for additional information to find out how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
It has been widely reported that the spread of COVID-19 is caused by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through small respiratory droplets that are blown into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The tiny droplets fall into in the mouths or noses of others who are nearby. It is also possible for these droplets to be inhaled into the lungs. This is why COVID-19 is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be spread when someone physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, then touches their mouth or nose. The CDC confirms that this type of spreading is very likely.
We begin by completing a full inspection of your home or office premises. We will then decide what level of containment you need and pass on the action plan to you.
Initially, Puroclean professionals will arrive at your home or business and conduct a preliminary inspection to check that the area is prepared for our cleaning services. Following this, the workflow is determined by our technicians, in order to do the required work as expeditiously as possible.
While Puroclean is performing biohazard removal, special focus and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is very important. Also, our biohazard removal is done by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The technicians 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. This equipment consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, and a full-face respirator. The respirator mask provides protection from splashing that would possibly reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Specific use towelettes are used that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and more cleaning supplies used 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 used during this process. Depending on the project needs, we generally use the following methods:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: Our Technicians will clean these items by hand 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 needed.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Disinfecting linens, clothing and personal fabrics: The instructions on each label should be obeyed when laundering the contaminated items. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines after washing contaminated clothing.
Tanned leather garments – We clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth and disinfectant sprays or disinfectant towelettes.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These items are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instruction.
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 should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. The interior surfaces of HVAC ductwork and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
Typically, once the affected area is cleaned and starts to dry, odors dissipate. However, our crew will decide when further deodorization is required.
We understand that a biohazard event can be sensitive and stressful 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 certified biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item respectfully and professionally, as if it were our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are 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 disinfection process of public places in the most effective way possible. Our system uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
Before PuroClean professionals vacate a property that was contaminated by the coronavirus, they will completely clean all tools, PPE, and equipment that was used during the coronavirus cleanup, using a hospital-grade, EPA-registered 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.
PuroClean is a great company and (I) would use them again. – Carolyn, Spring
