How does this version of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Spread?

Person-to-Person Spreading

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.

Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects

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.

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.

Our PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

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.

EPA-registered Hospital-grade Products

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.

Our Cleaning Materials for Coronavirus Calls

The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:

  1. Disposable microfiber wipes, brushes and/or cleaning sponges
  2. Trigger or Pressure sprayers
  3. Tape for Sealing Industrial Trash Bags
  4. Buckets and Mops
  5. Portable carpet cleaners for carpets and upholstery

Procedures for Disinfectant Application

Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three techniques.

  1. Application by sprayer: An electric or pump sprayer is utilized for this process. If the surface or item is visibly free of soil and grime, this application is generally the preferred method.
  2. Disinfecting towelettes – We use them to wipe electronics such as phones or computers. Towelettes are necessary if the surface or item has visible, light soil or dirt.
  3. Microfiber pads/wipes: Typically, these are implemented as an alternative to using pre-treated disinfecting towelettes – these are used along with appropriate products in a spray bottle that is appropriately labeled.

Cleaning Porous Surfaces and Materials

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.

Our Deodorization Process

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.

Our Promise

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.

Our Equipment Disinfection and Cleaning

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. 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.
