“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 Lake in the Hills 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 Lake in the Hills 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 Lake in the Hills 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 each individual practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective method to slow the infection rate is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These specialized cleaning procedures can be beneficial for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Lake in the Hills coronavirus cleaning services can promote a drastic reduction of contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our all of the services we offer.
It has been widely reported that the spread of COVID-19 is caused by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through the projected respiratory droplets that are blown into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The tiny droplets fall into 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.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be contracted when an individual physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, and then touches their nose or mouth. The CDC reports that this type of spreading is very likely.
PuroClean will initially conduct a complete inspection of your home or office. We then make a determination on the amount of containment required and discuss with you the plan of action.
First, our technicians arrive at the premises and do an initial inspection to ensure that the property is ready for cleaning services. Then, they plan the flow of the work to do the work as efficiently as possible.
It’s imperative that PuroClean conduct all biohazard removal with the utmost caution and a strict adherence to OSHA, Industry and safety standards. Our highly trained staff will contain areas, practicing all appropriate steps to focus on safety, your family’s safety and the employees safe work as well. The well trained technicians will use special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to perform biohazard removal as safely as possible.
First, wearing proper PPE is required. Puroclean technicians wear a full-face respirator to guard against airborne bacteria coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. The technicians also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
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 other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three techniques.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, the technicians will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then extract where applicable.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery should be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Disinfecting linens, clothing and personal fabrics: The instructions on each label should be followed when laundering the contaminated articles. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines following washing contaminated clothing.
Tanned leather items – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – These should be cleaned according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
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 technician or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
It is common for odors to dissipate when the infected areas are clean and begin to dry. However, our trained professionals will make the determination if further cleaning and 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 respectfully and professionally, as if it were their 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: Our RapidDefense process disinfects and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative process that we use in order to disinfect public places 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.
