“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 Disaster Recovery 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 Disaster Recovery 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 Oshkosh, WI area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rise and health and government officials notify people 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 an option for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will limit contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office with any questions on how we can help clean your property.
Individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are the most likely to spread COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets caused by coughing or sneezing produce small particles that may land on the nose or mouth or be inhaled into the lungs of another person. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads rapidly. Therefore, it is believed that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
To begin, we conduct a full assessment of your home or office. We will determine the containment level needed and inform you of the plan of action.
Our technicians need to determine the workflow in order to finish your cleanup project as soon as possible. When they first arrive at your location PuroClean will conduct a precursory inspection of the area to make sure it is ready for cleaning so as to complete this step quickly and efficiently.
It is of extreme importance to conduct biohazard removal while also paying close attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our trained technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your loved ones or employees safe as well.
All of the PuroClean professionals are required to wear PPE. The protective equipment includes a full-face respirator which protects from any type of splashes reaching the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and eyes. Additionally, our technicians wear Biohazard protective coveralls, Nitrile gloves, and shoe covers.
Our industry-certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, containing pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard for use against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials our technicians normally work with include:
Our technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant by three different methods, depending on the particular needs.
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: PuroClean technicians will thoroughly clean these items manually or apply appropriate disinfectants for machine washing for these carpets and textiles and conduct needed extraction where necessary.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in following with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated items are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated articles are to be laundered following instructions on every label.
Tanned leather items – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather items – Cleaned following 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: 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 outside ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be washed with the aid of a disinfectant solution.
Normally, when the affected location has been cleaned and starts to dry, the odors will disappear. Our technicians will decide, however, whether any more deodorization is required.
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 biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, as if it were their 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: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure that is used to start the disinfection process of public places the most effective way possible. Our system uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had affected, the PuroClean technicians will perform a extensive and complete washing 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.
