“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 Professional 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 Professional 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 Kingston 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 speaking to the public daily, asking that all people practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective method to slow the virus from spreading is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning on all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These specialized cleaning procedures can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Kingston coronavirus cleaning services can help drastically reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our cleaning procedures.
Individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are at the highest risk of spreading COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets caused by coughing or sneezing produce tiny droplets that possibly will land on the nose or mouth or be breathed into the lungs of another person. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads quickly. Therefore, it is thought that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
As stated by the CDC, there is a possibility that someone can contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object with the virus on it and then placing their hand on their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the containment level needed and inform you of the plan of action.
Initially, our technicians arrive at the job site and do an initial inspection to ensure that the area is ready for cleaning services. Then, they map out the flow of the work to do the work as efficiently as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained staff wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also identify the area, taking the needed steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
PPE is required to be worn by PuroClean professionals. This equipment includes Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The respirator mask provides protection against splashing that could reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
PuroClean’s technicians are industry-certified and use hospital grade disinfectant solutions that are EPA-registered. The products include towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients, meeting OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other bacteria that lead to disease. The ingredients also protect against viruses, tuberculosis, mildew, and mold.
Our technicians typically use these appropriate cleaning materials:
Our technicians apply EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant using three methods, depending on the particular needs.
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean will clean these items by hand or by machine cleaning. Approved 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 should be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated items 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 items – 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 material – These are to be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Washed by the application of disinfectants right on the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate once the affected areas are clean and begin to dry. However, our trained professionals will decide if further cleaning and deodorizing 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 experienced biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item respectfully and professionally, 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 system sanitizes and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative process we use in order to disinfect public areas the most effective way possible.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had affected, the PuroClean technicians 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. 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.
