“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 Certified Restoration Specialist 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 Certified Restoration Specialist 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 Metairie area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the The COVID-19 outbreak keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are publicly addressing the world daily, asking that each individual practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective method to slow the infection rate is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning on all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These specialized cleaning procedures can be beneficial for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Metairie coronavirus cleaning services can promote a drastic reduction of contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean professionals for more information on our cleaning procedures.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes between people who are in close contact with 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 can also be breathed into the lungs.
As stated by the CDC, there is a possibility that someone can contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object with the virus on it and then placing their hand on their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your property. We will determine the level of containment needed and notify you of the plan of action.
Initially, our technicians arrive at the premises and do a quick walkthrough to ensure that the area 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, special focus and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is very important. Also, our biohazard removal is addressed by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The technicians will section off the areas to undergo the cleaning process, using caution so as to protect customers, their families, and PuroClean employees.
PPE is a requirement that PuroClean technicians follow thoroughly. While on the jobsite completing our cleaning, our technicians will wear these PPE items: A full-face respirator provides protection from splashes that may reach the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eyes. Technicians also wear Nitrile gloves, Biohazard protective coveralls and shoe covers.
Our industry-certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, composed of pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like COVID-19 and more disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The typical cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
EPA-registered and hospital grade disinfectants are used during this process. Depending on the circumstances, we commonly use the following methods:
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – PuroClean professionals will either manually clean or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants compatible with the cleaning of textiles and carpets and then extract 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 after washing contaminated clothing.
Tanned leather materials – We clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened towel and disinfectant sprays or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather items – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Washed by the application of disinfectants right on the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers shall be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. The interior surfaces of HVAC ductwork and components need to be cleaned in accordance with industry instructions by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate once the affected areas are cleaned and begin to dry. However, the PuroClean technicians will decide if further cleaning and deodorization is required.
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 our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the likelihood of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an effective procedure used to start the disinfection process of public places in the most effective way possible. Our process uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean staff will perform a full 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.
