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.

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.
Maintaining a clean environment is the key to reducing the spread of viruses. Many have cleaned for appearance; however, recent virus outbreaks that have led to declarations of pandemic proportions have highlighted the need to clean for health.
For your protection and the decontamination of viruses, contact PuroClean, your Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (323) 364-8080. A risk of exposure is always possible with virus protection and decontamination. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to hire a well known and established firm with certified, experienced technicians. This will help to avoid the liability dangers that may arise from improper cleaning along with mitigating the risk of spreading potentially contagious pathogens.
Every occasion in which PuroClean technicians come into contact with potentially hazardous materials, they are doing so at great risk. Therefore, following the correct training and safety procedures is top priority. It’s important not just for their personal safety, but for the safety of those who will occupy the premises after this work and any other necessary remediation is complete.
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.
As with any type of property damage, PuroClean restoration professionals ensure that their actions are respectful to the confidentiality and sensitivity of the services being offered with all parties involved.
