Virus Decontamination and Protection in Chicago, IL

Viruses are germs that assault living cells; there they multiply, resulting in a breakdown of the cells they’ve assaulted. A virus is a microorganism, smaller than a bacterium, and is not able to reproduce or grow without a living cell. A virus enters living cells and uses their chemical machinery to stay alive and replicate itself. Viruses are responsible for many common human infections as well as many rare diseases. Viruses are infectious small agents made of simple composition that multiplies only in a living cell of an animal, plant, or bacteria.

Not all viral diseases are contagious, meaning they cannot be spread from person to person. Contagious viral infections can include the common cold, flu, or other respiratory infections.

Viral infections include:

  1. Infections transferred person-to-person:
    • COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases (the common cold, flu, etc.)
    • Hepatitis, Ebola – spread through bodily fluids
    • Warts, measles, chickenpox, and other contagious skin infections or rashes
  2. Infections transferred by insects, animals, or food, water, or other sources:
    • Gastrointestinal (stomach flu) – spread through contaminated food or water
    • Viral diseases spread by insects (viral meningitis, dengue fever, yellow fever, H1N1)
    • Viruses spread through the bite of infected animals or bugs (polio, rabies, etc.)

If you feel that your home or office has been impacted by the COVID-19 or any other virus or infection, contact your local PuroClean professionals. Cleaning your home after it has been compromised with the coronavirus or any other infectious disease is an important step to keeping yourself and your family safe. Our IICRC certified offices are trained to handle virus decontamination and protection with discretion. We will restore your property to its pre-event condition.

The key to reducing the spread of viruses is to maintain a clean environment. Before the pandemic, the majority of cleaning was for appearance; however, since the onset and most recent outbreaks of the coronavirus, cleaning has become more necessary for healthy environments above all else.

For your protection and the decontamination of viruses, contact PuroClean, your Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (708) 929-9696. A risk of exposure is always possible with virus protection and decontamination. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to hire a well known and established firm with certified, experienced technicians. This will help to avoid the liability dangers that may arise from improper cleaning along with mitigating the risk of spreading potentially contagious pathogens.

Every time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials; they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following proper training and safety protocols is crucial. This is important not only for their own personal safety but also for the individuals who will reside in the property after these and other biohazard cleanup services are complete.

Coronavirus Cleanup

In an effort to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to rise globally, health and government officials maintain that the public must take necessary measures to protect themselves. One of the best ways to slow the progress of the coronavirus is to perform deep mitigation cleaning. PuroClean’s team of highly trained IICRC professionals uses the RapidDefense™ system to provide deep mitigation cleaning in areas compromised by a coronavirus or Influenza, or any other respiratory infection impacting your property. Using this process, the team will carefully contain the area and will minimize the risk of pathogens spreading using hospital-grade Environmental Protection Agency-registered (EPA) products. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care. These methods of cleaning can be utilized for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Call your local PuroClean office for more information on how we can help clean your property.
