“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 Mitigation 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 Mitigation 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 Alsip area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to grow and health and government leaders 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 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.
The virus is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes individuals who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets becoming airborne when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of individuals who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the 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 first will come in and provide a full assessment of your office or home. We determine the level of containment required and discuss the plan of action with you.
PuroClean technicians will mobilize their crew and perform an initial walkthrough to confirm that the property is ready for our cleaning procedures. The technicians will map out a plan for the flow of work and conduct the full cleaning as efficiently as possible.
While Puroclean is performing biohazard removal, special focus and adherence to safety, industry, and OSHA standards is highly important. Also, our biohazard removal is addressed by technicians who will wear appropriate protective equipment, also known as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). PuroClean will section off the areas to undergo the cleaning process, using caution so as to protect customers, their families, and PuroClean employees.
PPE is required to be worn by PuroClean professionals. This equipment consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, and a full-face respirator. The respirator mask 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 other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
The cleaning materials our technicians normally work with include:
Depending on the circumstances, Puroclean technicians apply EPA-registered hospital grade disinfectants using three methods.
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – PuroClean professionals will either manually clean or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then remove spots where applicable.
Natural fabric rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: These items are to be cleaned in exact 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 articles. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines after washing contaminated clothing.
Tanned leather garments – 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 garments – These are to be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleansed by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the items.
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. Also, the outside ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be washed using a disinfectant solution.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate when the infected areas are cleaned and begin to dry. However, the PuroClean technicians will decide if more cleaning and deodorizing 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 respectfully and professionally, as if it were our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure that is used to start the disinfection process of public areas in the most effective way possible. Our process uses sanitizers that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas.
EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant will be used to clean all tools, equipment and PPE that was used during the coronavirus cleanup. Prior to leaving the site that had been contaminated with the coronavirus we shall conduct this detailed cleaning.
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.
