What we know about how Covid-19 Spreads

The Spreading of Person-to-Person

Individuals that are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are at the highest risk of spreading COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets caused by coughing or sneezing produce small particles that possibly will land on the nose or mouth or be breathed into the lungs of someone nearby. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads quickly. Therefore, it is thought that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.

Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects

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.

Prioritizing Safety

It is of high importance to work with biohazard removal while also paying strict attention to safety, industry, and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our trained technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure your personal safety. They also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.

Our PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

PPE is a requirement that PuroClean technicians follow thoroughly. While on your job conducting cleaning, all technicians will wear these PPE items: A full-face respirator provides protection from splashes that may contact the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eyes. Technicians also wear Nitrile gloves, Biohazard protective coveralls, and covers on their shoes.

Hospital-grade EPA-registered Products

Special towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and numerous more diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and other cleaning supplies put to use by our industry certified technicians are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.

PuroClean Cleaning Materials for Coronavirus Calls

Our technicians typically use these appropriate cleaning materials:

  1. Portable carpet cleaners for carpets and upholstery
  2. Buckets and Mops
  3. Trigger or Pressure sprayers
  4. Tape for Sealing Industrial Garbage Bags
  5. Microfiber wipes, brushes, and cleaning sponges

Disinfectant Application Procedures

Puroclean uses three methods for applying disinfectants. Depending on the circumstances, technicians apply hospital-grade, EPA-registered disinfectants in one of these three methods:

  1. Spray application: A pump or electric sprayer is normally used for this application. This item is preferred if the item or surface is free of visible dirt and grime.
  2. Disinfecting towelettes: If any surface or item has visible minimal light dirt or soil our preferred practice is disinfecting towelettes. These are used along with a pump or electric sprayer on locations or items that are visibly lacking soil and dirt.
  3. Microfiber wipes/pads: Put to use as alternatives to the towelettes, using these along with cleaning products from an appropriately labeled bottle is useful.

Cleaning Surfaces and Materials that are Porous

Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then remove stains where applicable.

Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery, and rugs require cleaning that is in accordance with the guidelines of the manufacturer.

To disinfect clothing, linens, and other personal fabrics, the infected articles should be cleaned per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines should be disinfected after washing soiled materials.

Tanned leather materials – PuroClean will clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened towel and disinfectant solutions or disinfectant towelettes.

Nu-buck and suede leather material: These garments are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.

HVAC system – HVAC internal duct surfaces and components 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 with a disinfectant solution.

Deodorization

Normally, when the affected area has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors will disappear. Our technicians will decide, however, whether any further deodorization is required.

PuroClean’s Promise

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 respectfully and professionally, 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.

Proper Cleaning and Disinfection of Equipment

Prior to vacating a project site in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean staff will perform a full and complete cleansing 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. 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.
