Virus Decontamination and Protection in Leominster

Viruses are germs that invade living cells where they multiply, causing a breakdown of the cells they inhabit. It’s a microorganism that is smaller than a bacterium that cannot grow or reproduce apart from a living cell. A virus invades living cells and uses their chemical machinery to keep itself alive and to replicate itself. Viruses cause many common human infections and are also responsible for a number of rare diseases. They are infectious agents of small size and simple composition that can multiply only in living cells of animals, plants, or bacteria.

Not all viral diseases are contagious, meaning they cannot be spread from person to person. Contagious viral infections can include the common cold, flu, or other respiratory infections.

Viral infections include:

  1. Infections transferred person-to-person:
    • COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases (the common cold, flu, etc.)
    • Hepatitis, Ebola – spread through bodily fluids
    • Warts, measles, chickenpox, and other contagious skin infections or rashes
  2. Infections transferred by insects, animals, or food, water, or other sources:
    • Gastrointestinal (stomach flu) – spread through contaminated food or water
    • Viral diseases spread by insects (viral meningitis, dengue fever, yellow fever, H1N1)
    • Viruses spread through the bite of infected animals or bugs (polio, rabies, etc.)

If you feel that your home or office has been impacted by the COVID-19 or any other virus or infection, contact your local PuroClean professionals. Cleaning your home after it has been compromised with the coronavirus or any other infectious disease is an important step to keeping yourself and your family safe. Our IICRC certified offices are trained to handle virus decontamination and protection with discretion. We will restore your property to its pre-event condition.

Keeping clean surroundings is the best way to reduce the spread of viruses. A large majority of people once cleaned for just the appearance. But, since then, the recent virus outbreaks that have reached levels of pandemic proportions have shed light on the need for cleanliness for health purposes specifically.

Virus decontamination and protection involves a risk of exposure. In spite of this, it is important to hire a trained professional so as not to risk the danger of liability from improper cleanup efforts or the risk of spreading potentially contagious pathogens. Call PuroClean, the Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (978) 549-8620, for your virus decontamination and protection needs.

Every time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials; they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following proper training and safety protocols is crucial. This is important not only for their own personal safety but also for the individuals who will reside in the property after these and other biohazard cleanup services are complete.

Coronavirus Cleanup

In an effort to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to rise globally, health and government officials maintain that the public must take necessary measures to protect themselves. One of the best ways to slow the progress of the coronavirus is to perform deep mitigation cleaning. PuroClean’s team of highly trained IICRC professionals uses the RapidDefense™ system to provide deep mitigation cleaning in areas compromised by a coronavirus or Influenza, or any other respiratory infection impacting your property. Using this process, the team will carefully contain the area and will minimize the risk of pathogens spreading using hospital-grade Environmental Protection Agency-registered (EPA) products. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care. These methods of cleaning can be utilized for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Call your local PuroClean office for more information on how we can help clean your property.
