“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 Fairfield 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 Fairfield 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 Fairfield 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 the public to take appropriate precautions to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its progress 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 aid in minimizing contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office for additional information on how we can help clean your property.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes individuals who are close to one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of individuals who are nearby or can also be breathed into the lungs.
According to the CDC, it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object which has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
We start out by completing a full inspection of your home or office premises. We will then decide what level of containment you should have and relay the action plan to you.
Our technicians need to determine the workflow in order to complete your cleanup project as soon 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.
It is key to perform biohazard abatement with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the needed steps to keep you and your family or employees out of harm’s way as well.
PPE is required to be worn by PuroClean professionals. The equipment worn consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, and a full-face respirator. The full face mask 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 against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
Our technicians typically use these appropriate cleaning materials:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant using three methods, depending on the particular needs.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – PuroClean professionals will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then remove spots where applicable.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
For the disinfectant of 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 items – We can clean these materials by cleaning the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These garments are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These particular items are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly on the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal components and surfaces of ductwork should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External duct surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned using a disinfectant solution.
Normally, when the affected area has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors go away. Our technicians will decide, however, whether any more 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 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 areas in the most effective way possible. Our process uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in areas close by.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had affected, the PuroClean staff 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.
