“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 Idaho Falls 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 Idaho Falls 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 Idaho Falls area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the The COVID-19 outbreak keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are publicly addressing the world daily, asking that each individual practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective practice to slow the virus from spreading is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These particular cleaning procedures can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Idaho Falls coronavirus cleaning services can help drastically reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our various cleaning and restoration services.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes between people who are close to one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets becoming airborne when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the 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.
We begin by completing a full assessment of your home or office premises. We will then decide what level of containment you need and relay the action plan to you.
Initially, Puroclean professionals will arrive at your location and conduct a preliminary inspection to ensure the area is ready for our cleaning services. Afterwards the plan of the work is determined by PuroClean, in order to do the required work as expeditiously as possible.
It is of extreme importance to perform biohazard removal while also paying close attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our skilled technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. PuroClean will also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against infected particles 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 professionals use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, composed of pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
Our technicians typically use the following cleaning materials:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant using three methods, depending on the circumstances.
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean will clean these items manually or by machine cleaning. Appropriate disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; spot removal will be done where applicable.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in following with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
To disinfect 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 materials – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather items – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the items.
HVAC systems: The internal duct surfaces of the HVAC system and components should be cleaned by a licensed HVAC contractor or a duct cleaner who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry guidelines. Additionally, external ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers are to be cleaned with disinfectant cleaners.
Our technicians shall make the decision whether more cleaning and deodorization will be performed. However, typically once the infected locations 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 experienced biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, as if it were our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense process disinfects and even reduces virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure that we use in order to disinfect public areas as effectively as possible.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean staff will perform a extensive and complete cleansing 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.
