“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 of Southern York County 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 of Southern York County 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 Eliot area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and health and government officials notify individuals 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, while also using an EPA-registered disinfectant. These methods of cleaning can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will help reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office for additional information on how we can help clean your affected area.
“Person-to-Person” is thought to be the most widely known way COVID-19 spreads between people. This takes place with people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Droplets produced by the respiratory system when an infected person coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of anyone within range. Additionally, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
As stated by the CDC, there is a possibility that someone can contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object where the virus exists and then placing their hand on their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
PuroClean will initially conduct a complete inspection of your home or office. We then make a determination on the amount of containment required and speak to you about the plan of action.
PuroClean will need to determine the workflow in order to complete your cleanup project as quickly as possible. Upon arrival to your location PuroClean will conduct a precursory inspection of your property to make sure it is ready for cleaning in order to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
While Puroclean is working on biohazard removal, special focus 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 our cleanup technicians. This equipment includes Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection from splashing that would possibly reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Our industry-certified professionals use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard for use against diseases like COVID-19 and more disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The most common cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Depending on the circumstances, Puroclean technicians apply EPA-registered hospital grade disinfectants using three methods.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, the technicians will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then remove stains where applicable.
Natural fabric rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: These items are to be cleaned in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s labeled instructions.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the infected articles should be cleaned per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines need to be disinfected after washing soiled materials.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by utilizing disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
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 disinfectant solution right 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 cleaning specialist who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry standards. Additionally, externally located ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers will be cleaned with disinfectant cleaners.
Our technicians shall make the decision whether more cleaning and deodorization will be performed. However, typically once the infected areas are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will go away.
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 certified 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: Our RapidDefense process disinfects and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure we use in order to sanitize public places as effectively as possible.
Before PuroClean professionals vacate a property that had been contaminated by the coronavirus, they will thoroughly 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.
