“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 Northwest Fort Worth 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 Northwest Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
An extremely effective way to battle the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using EPA-registered disinfectants. This type of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. At this time, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government officials and healthcare experts to compel the public to take every necessary precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services we offer assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Contact your local PuroClean office for additional information about how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
It has been widely reported that the spread of COVID-19 is prevalent by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through the projected respiratory droplets that are blown into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The tiny droplets end up 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 contracted when someone physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, afterwards touches their mouth or nose. The CDC confirms that this type of spreading is very likely.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your property. We will determine the containment level needed and notify you of our action plan.
When we arrive at your home or business we’ll do a walkthrough 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.
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 provides protection from splashing that could reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Our trained professionals are industry-certified and use hospital grade disinfectant products that are EPA-registered. These products include towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients, meeting OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standards against diseases like the coronavirus and other bacteria that cause disease. The disinfectant solutions also protect against viruses, tuberculosis, mildew, and mold.
The most common cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Depending on the circumstances, Puroclean technicians apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three techniques.
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 instructions.
Disinfecting linens, clothing and personal fabrics: The instructions on each label should be followed when laundering the contaminated articles. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines following washing contaminated clothing.
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 materials are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instruction.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly to the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers shall 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.
Our crew shall make the decision whether more cleaning and deodorization will be carried out. However, typically once the infected locations are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will disappear.
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 experienced 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, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure used to start the disinfection process of public places in the most effective and safe way possible. Our process uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had affected, the PuroClean staff 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.
