“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 Property Restoration Services 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 Property Restoration Services 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 Lee's Summit, MO area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
An extremely effective way to limit 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 urge the public to take every necessary precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services PuroClean performs assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Get in touch with your local PuroClean office for additional information to find out how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
“Person-to-Person” has been known to be the most common way COVID-19 spreads between people. This takes place with people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Droplets produced by the respiratory system when an individual infected with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of people nearby. Also, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
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 possibility of the disease being spread in this manner.
We first will come in and provide a full assessment of your office or home. We decide on the level of containment required and discuss the plan of action with you.
When we arrive at your home or business we’ll do a walkthrough to confirm the area is ready for PuroClean’s cleaning services. We will then determine the flow of work and perform the cleaning as efficiently as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard abatement with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also contain the area, taking the needed steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
PPE is required to be worn by our cleanup technicians. The equipment worn includes Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection against splashing that would possibly reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Specific use towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and other diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and more cleaning supplies put to use by our industry certified professionals are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.
Our technicians typically use the following cleaning materials:
EPA-registered as well as hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this cleaning phase. Depending on the circumstances, we generally use these methods:
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; extraction will be done where needed.
Natural fabric rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: These items are to be cleaned in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s labeled instructions.
Disinfecting linens, clothing and personal fabrics: The instructions on each label should be obeyed when laundering the contaminated articles. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines following washing contaminated clothing.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean will clean these materials by using disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned following the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These materials are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly on the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers shall be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. HVAC internal duct surfaces and components need to be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
Our technicians shall make the decision whether more cleaning and deodorization will be needed. However, typically once the infected locations are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will disappear.
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 products that are approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure that is used to start the sanitization process of public places in the most effective and safe way possible. Our system uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
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.
