There is a risk of exposure when working with virus protection and decontamination. For this reason, it is imperative to employ a reputable and proven company with trained professionals. There are many reasons to do this, but by far the most important reason is to avoid the dangers of liability from improper cleaning methods or even risking spreading pathogens that are potentially contagious.
Every time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials; they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following proper training and safety protocols is crucial. This is important not only for their own personal safety but also for the individuals who will reside in the property after these and other biohazard cleanup services are 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.
