“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 Property Paramedics 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 Property Paramedics 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 Orange area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to grow and health and government officials notify the public to take necessary measures to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its progress is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of an EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning procedures can be an option for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will help reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Call your local PuroClean office with any questions on how we can help clean your property.
“Person-to-Person” has been known to be the most common way COVID-19 spreads between people. This occurs mainly with people 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.
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.
We begin by completing a full assessment of your home or office premises. We then decide what level of containment you should have and relay the plan of action to you.
Initially, Puroclean professionals will arrive at your home or business and conduct a preliminary inspection to ensure the area is ready for our cleaning services. Following this, the workflow is determined by our technicians, in order to do the required work as expeditiously as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard abatement with strict attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained staff wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the needed steps to keep you and your family or employees out of harm’s way as well.
PPE is required to be worn by our cleanup technicians. This equipment includes Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection from splashing that would possibly reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Our industry-certified professionals use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and more disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
Our technicians typically use these appropriate cleaning materials:
Our technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant by three different methods, depending on the particular needs.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, the technicians will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then extract where applicable.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in following with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
For the disinfectant of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the affected articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be thoroughly cleaned after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather materials – PuroClean will clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth and disinfectant sprays or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal duct surfaces and components should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate when the infected areas are clean and begin to dry. However, our trained professionals will decide if further cleaning and deodorizing 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 experienced 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, 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 process that we use in order to disinfect public places as effectively as possible.
Before PuroClean professionals vacate a premises that was contaminated by the coronavirus, they will completely clean all tools, PPE, and equipment that was 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.
