“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 East Las Vegas 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 East Las Vegas 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 Las Vegas, NV area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rise and health and government leaders notify individuals to take necessary measures to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its progression is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of an EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning procedures can be utilized for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will help reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Call your local PuroClean office with any questions on how we can help clean your affected area.
It has been publicly announced that the spread of COVID-19 is prevalent by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through small respiratory droplets that are blown into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The tiny droplets land 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 mainly from person-to-person.
It may be possible for people to get the COVID-19 virus after touching a surface with the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. The CDC confirms the high probability of the disease being spread in this manner.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of our action plan.
When we arrive at your home or business we’ll do an inspection to confirm the area is ready for PuroClean’s cleaning services. We will then determine the flow of work and perform the tasks as efficiently as possible.
It is of extreme importance to work with biohazard removal while also paying close attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our trained technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure your personal safety. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your loved ones or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against infected particles coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. PuroClean professionals also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Our industry-certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard for use against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
Our technicians typically use the following cleaning materials:
EPA-registered and hospital grade disinfectants are used during this cleaning phase. Depending on the circumstances, we commonly use these methods:
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – PuroClean professionals will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants compatible with the cleaning of textiles and carpets and then extract where needed.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the infected articles should be cleaned per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines need to be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather materials – We can wash 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, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These particular items are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly 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 duct surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
Typically, once the infected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors will go away. However, our crew will decide when further deodorization 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 certified 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, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure used to start the sanitization process of public places in the most effective way possible. Our system uses disinfectants 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. Prior to leaving the site that was contaminated with the coronavirus we will conduct this meticulous 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.
