“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 West Houston 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 West Houston 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 West Houston, TX area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rise and health and government officials notify the public to take necessary measures 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 utilized 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 more information on how we can help clean your property.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the plan of action.
First, our technicians arrive at the job site and do a quick walkthrough to ensure that the area is ready for cleaning services. Then, they determine the flow of the work to do the work as efficiently as possible.
We pay special attention to these areas:
It is key to perform biohazard removal 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 appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is required. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to guard against splashes coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. They also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Our industry-certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfecting products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials our technicians typically use include:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant using three methods, depending on the circumstances.
Typically, once the infected area is cleaned and starts to dry, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary.
Prior to leaving a site that has been contaminated with the coronavirus, our team will do a thorough cleaning of all tools, equipment, and PPE used in the coronavirus cleanup with 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.
