“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 Orland Park/Tinley Park 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 Orland Park/Tinley Park 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 Northbrook, IL area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the coronavirus pandemic 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 virus from spreading is by the performance of deep mitigation cleaning on all touch-point surfaces, along with using EPA-registered disinfectants. These particular cleaning procedures can be used for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Orland Park and Tinley Park 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.
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 miniscule drops that may 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.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be spread when an individual physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, afterwards touches their mouth or nose. The CDC confirms that this type of spreading is highly likely.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of your property. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of our action plan.
PuroClean will need to determine the workflow in order to complete your cleanup project as soon as possible. When they first arrive at your location PuroClean will conduct a preliminary inspection of the area to make sure it is ready for cleaning in order to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
It is of high importance to perform biohazard removal while also paying close attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure your personal safety. They also contain the area, taking the necessary steps to keep you and your loved ones or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is required. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to protect them against splashes coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. They also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Our trained professionals are fully trained and certified and use hospital grade disinfectant products that are EPA-registered. These products include towelettes, containing pharmaceutical substances, meeting OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standards against diseases like the coronavirus and much more that cause disease. The disinfectant solutions also protect against viruses, tuberculosis, mildew, and mold.
The most common cleaning materials used by our technicians include:
EPA-registered as well as hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this process. Depending on the project needs, we commonly use the following methods:
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 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 followed when laundering the contaminated items. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines following washing contaminated clothing.
Tanned leather items – We can wash these materials by wiping the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned following the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, wood, block, cinder block, concrete and OSB (Oriented Strand Board): Cleaned by the application of disinfectant solution right on the surface.
HVAC System: Industry regulations should be followed for the cleaning of HVAC internal ducts surfaces and components; by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. Additionally, the external ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be cleaned using a disinfectant solution.
Typically, when the infected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors will go away. However, PuroClean technicians will decide if further deodorization is necessary.
We understand that a biohazard event can be sensitive and stressful 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 their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the likelihood of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system disinfects and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative process we use in order to sanitize public areas as effectively as possible.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had affected, the PuroClean technicians 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.
