“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 Coral Gables 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 of Coral Gables 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 Miami area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rise and health and government leaders notify individuals to take all the steps to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its spread is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, while also using an EPA-registered disinfectant. These methods of cleaning can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will aid in minimizing contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office with any questions on how we can help clean your affected area.
“Person-to-Person” has appeared to be the most common way COVID-19 is spread. This occurs mainly with those who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Droplets produced by the respiratory system when an infected person coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of anyone within range. Also, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
It may be possible for an individual to get the COVID-19 virus after touching an area with the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. The CDC confirms the possibility of the disease being spread in this manner.
Puroclean technicians will need to determine what level of containment you will require and discuss with you a plan of action. This is the initial step they will take when a complete and full assessment of your home or office.
PuroClean technicians will arrive at your home or business and perform an initial walkthrough to confirm that the property is ready for our cleaning. The technicians will map out a plan for the flow of work and conduct the full cleaning as effectively as possible.
While Puroclean is performing biohazard removal, special focus 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 PuroClean professionals. This equipment consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The full face mask provides protection against splashing that could reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
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 the coronavirus and more disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials our technicians typically use include:
Our technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant using three methods, depending on the circumstances.
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: Our Technicians will clean these items manually or by machine cleaning. Appropriate 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 exact accordance with the manufacturer’s labeled instructions.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated materials are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated pieces are to be laundered following instructions on each label.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by utilizing disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These materials are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instruction.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly to the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal components and surfaces of ductwork should be cleaned in focus with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned using a disinfectant solution.
Our crew shall make the decision whether further cleaning and deodorization will be carried out. However, typically once the infected locations are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will go away.
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 certified biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item respectfully and professionally, as if it were our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system sanitizes and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure that we use in order to disinfect public areas as effectively as possible.
Before PuroClean technicians vacate a premises that had been contaminated by the coronavirus, they will completely clean all tools, PPE, and cleaning items that were used while performing coronavirus cleanup, using a hospital-grade, EPA-registered 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.
