“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 Jacksonville Southbank 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 Jacksonville Southbank 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 Jacksonville area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the coronavirus pandemic keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are speaking to the public daily, asking that all people practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective practice to slow the infection rate is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning on all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These particular cleaning procedures can be beneficial for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Chicago coronavirus cleaning services can help drastically reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our all of the services we offer.
“Person-to-Person” has been known to be the most common way COVID-19 spreads between people. This occurs mainly with people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Droplets produced by the respiratory system when an individual infected with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of anyone within range. Additionally, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
It may be possible for someone 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 being spread in this manner.
Puroclean technicians will set out to determine what level of containment you will require and speak with you regarding a plan of action. This is the first step they will take when they complete a full assessment of your premises.
Our technicians need to determine the workflow in order to finish your cleanup project as soon as possible. Upon arrival to your location they will conduct a preliminary inspection of your property to make sure it is ready for cleaning so as to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
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. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
All of the PuroClean professionals are required to wear PPE. This particular protective equipment includes a full-face respirator which protects from any type of splashes contacting the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and eyes. Also, our technicians wear Biohazard protective coveralls, Nitrile gloves, and covers over their shoes.
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 more disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials our technicians typically use include:
EPA-registered as well as hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this process. Depending on the project needs, we commonly use these methods:
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; spot removal will be done where applicable.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated materials are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated articles are to be laundered following instructions on each label.
Tanned leather materials – We can clean these materials by cleaning the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned following the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Cleaned by the application of disinfectants onto the surface.
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 standards. Also, external ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers are to be cleaned with disinfectant solution.
Typically, once the infected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine if further deodorization is required.
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 certified 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, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an effective procedure that is used to start the sanitization process of public areas the most effective and safe way possible. Our system uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant will be utilized to clean all tools, equipment and PPE that was used during the coronavirus cleanup. Before leaving the site that had been contaminated with the coronavirus we shall conduct this detailed cleaning.
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.
