“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 Disaster Restoration 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 Disaster Restoration 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 Greenfield area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
A very good 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 level 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 available precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services PuroClean performs 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 publicly announced that the spread of COVID-19 is caused by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through tiny 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 most prevalently from person-to-person.
It may be possible for an individual to get the COVID-19 virus after touching an area with the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. The CDC confirms the possibility of the disease spreading in this manner.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of our action plan.
Our technicians 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 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 very 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.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against airborne bacteria coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. PuroClean professionals also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Our industry certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The typical cleaning materials used by PuroClean professionals include:
Depending on the circumstances, Puroclean technicians apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three methods.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then remove stains 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 infected articles should be laundered per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines should be disinfected after washing soiled materials.
Tanned leather materials – 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 materials are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleansed by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the items.
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 contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner.
Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors go away. Our trained professionals will decide, however, whether any 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 biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, 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 effective procedure that is used to start the sanitization 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 areas close by.
Before PuroClean technicians vacate a property that had been contaminated by the coronavirus, they will completely clean all tools, PPE, and cleaning items that were 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.
