“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 Emergency Restoration Specialists 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 Emergency Restoration Specialists 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 Lakeland, FL area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
A very good way to battle the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of EPA-registered disinfectants. This particular kind of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. Currently, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government officials and healthcare experts to compel the public to take every available precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services we offer assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Get in touch with your local PuroClean office for additional information about how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets ejected when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be breathed into the lungs.
It may be possible for people 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 spreading in this manner.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of our action plan.
Initially, Puroclean professionals will arrive at your location and perform a preliminary inspection to make sure the area is ready for our cleaning services. Following this, the workflow is determined by our technicians, in order to do the required work as expeditiously as possible.
While Puroclean is working on biohazard removal, full attention and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is very important. Also, our biohazard removal is done by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The technicians will section off the areas to undergo the cleaning process, using caution so as to protect customers, their families, and PuroClean employees.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Puroclean technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against splashes coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. They 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 the coronavirus and more disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials our technicians typically use include:
EPA-registered and hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this cleaning phase. Depending on the circumstances, we commonly use the following methods:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean 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 needed.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in accordance with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the contaminated articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
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 – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in focus 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.
Our crew shall make the decision whether more cleaning and deodorization will be needed. However, typically once the infected areas 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 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 process sanitizes 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 the most effective way possible.
Prior to vacating a project location 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.
