“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 Home Emergency 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 Home Emergency 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 Madison 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, and also using EPA-registered disinfectants. This level of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. Right now, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government officials and healthcare experts to urge the public to take every possible precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services we offer assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Get in touch with your local PuroClean office for additional information about how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
The virus is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes between people who are close to one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets becoming airborne when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The droplets then can land in the mouths or noses of individuals who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be contracted when someone physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, and then touches their nose or mouth. The CDC reports that this type of spreading is very likely.
We begin by completing a full assessment of your home or office premises. We then decide what level of containment you need and relay the action plan to you.
PuroClean will need to determine the workflow in order to complete your cleanup project as soon as possible. Upon arrival to your location they will conduct a preliminary inspection of the area to make sure it is ready for cleaning so as to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
It is of high importance to conduct biohazard removal while also paying close attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our skilled technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your loved ones or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Puroclean 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.
Specific use towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard to fight diseases like the coronavirus and numerous more 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 disinfectant products.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
EPA-registered as well as hospital grade disinfectants are used during this process. Depending on the circumstances, we commonly use these methods:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: PuroClean will clean these items by hand or by machine cleaning. Appropriate disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; extraction will be done where needed.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the contaminated articles should be laundered per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines need to be disinfected after washing soiled materials.
Tanned leather materials – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Washed by the application of disinfectant solution right 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 cleaner.
Our technicians shall make the decision whether more 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 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.

Before leaving a site that was once contaminated with the coronavirus, our team 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.
