“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 Huntington Park LA uses the PuroClean RapidDefense™ system to provide coronavirus cleanup in areas compromised by a Coronavirus or Influenza outbreak. Using this process, the team at PuroClean of Huntington Park LA 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 Los Angeles area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
The coronavirus pandemic is still spreading and government leaders and healthcare professionals continue to urge citizens to follow strict and particular measures for protection. PuroClean’s Los Angeles coronavirus cleaning practices help reduce COVID-19 outbreak-related contamination. We are currently doing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using disinfectants that are EPA registered. These cleaning practices are available for any commercial, residential, industrial, and institutional areas. Get in touch with PuroClean ASAP to find out more about our COVID-19 cleaning services and more.
Individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are at the highest risk of spreading COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets caused by coughing or sneezing produce tiny droplets that possibly will land on the nose or mouth or be inhaled into the lungs of someone nearby. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads rapidly. Therefore, it is believed that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be contracted when an individual physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, then touches their mouth or nose. The CDC confirms that this type of spreading is highly likely.
Puroclean technicians will need to determine what level of containment you will need and speak with you regarding a plan of action. This is the first step they will take when a complete and full assessment of your home or office.
Initially, our technicians arrive at the premises and do a quick walkthrough to ensure that the property is ready for cleaning services. Then, they map out the flow of the work to do the cleaning as efficiently as possible.
While Puroclean is performing biohazard removal, full attention and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is highly important. Also, our biohazard removal is done by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). PuroClean will section off the areas to undergo the cleaning process, using caution so as to protect customers, their families, and PuroClean employees.
PPE is required to be worn by our cleanup technicians. The equipment worn consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The full face mask provides protection from 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 numerous more diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and other cleaning supplies put to use by our industry certified technicians are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectant products.
Our technicians typically use the following cleaning materials:
Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three techniques.
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains, and upholstery: Our Technicians 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; spot removal 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.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated items are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens, and other personal fabrics, contaminated articles are to be laundered per instructions on every label.
Tanned leather items – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These items are to be cleaned in accordance with 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 systems: The internal duct surfaces of the HVAC system and components should be cleaned by a licensed HVAC contractor or a duct cleaner who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry guidelines. Also, external ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers will be cleaned with disinfectant cleaners.
Our crew shall make the decision whether further cleaning and deodorization will be carried out. However, typically once the infected areas are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will disappear.
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 professionally and respectfully as if it were their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens, and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system disinfects and even helps prevent viruses and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure that we use in order to sanitize public areas in the most effective way possible.
Prior to leaving a site that was once contaminated with the coronavirus, our technicians will do a thorough cleaning of all equipment and tools used in the coronavirus cleanup with 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.
