“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 Restoration Services 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 Restoration Services 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 Portland, OR area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the The COVID-19 outbreak keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are speaking to the public daily, asking that all people practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective method to slow the infection rate 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 effective for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Portland, OR 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 various cleaning and restoration services.
“Person-to-Person” has appeared to be the most common way COVID-19 spreads between people. This takes place with people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Droplets produced by the respiratory system when an individual infected with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes land on the face, mouths or noses of people nearby. Also, these droplets can be inhaled into 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.
Puroclean technicians will set out to determine what level of containment you will need and speak with you regarding a plan of action. This is the initial step they will take when they complete a full assessment of your premises.
Initially, Puroclean professionals will arrive at your location and perform a preliminary inspection to ensure the area is ready for our cleaning services. Following this, the workflow is determined by PuroClean, in order to do the required work as expeditiously as possible.
It is important to perform biohazard abatement with strict attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained staff wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also identify the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees out of harm’s way as well.
All of the PuroClean professionals are required to wear PPE. This particular protective equipment includes a full-face respirator that provides protection from any type of splashes contacting the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and eyes. Also, our technicians wear Biohazard protective coveralls, Nitrile gloves, and covers over their shoes.
Our extensively trained and certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that adhere to 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 typically use include:
EPA-registered and hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this process. Depending on the project needs, we generally use the following methods:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: Our Technicians will clean these items by hand or by machine cleaning. Appropriate disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; spot removal will be done where applicable.
Natural fabrics, curtains, upholstery and rugs require cleaning that is in accordance with the guidelines of the manufacturer.
For the disinfectant of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the contaminated articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather garments – PuroClean will clean these material items by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth and disinfectant solutions or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – Cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
Plywood, OSB (oriented strand board), concrete and cinder block: These materials are cleaned by the application of the disinfectant solution directly on the surface.
HVAC systems: The internal duct surfaces of the HVAC system and components should be cleaned by a licensed HVAC contractor or a duct cleaning specialist who is NADCA certified in accordance with industry guidelines. Also, externally located ductwork grates, grills, surfaces and registers will be cleaned with disinfectant solution.
Typically, when the infected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors will go away. However, our crew will determine 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 experienced 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.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system sanitizes and even reduces virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure that we use in order to sanitize public areas as effectively as possible.
Before leaving a site that was once infected with the coronavirus, our technicians will do a complete cleaning of all tools, equipment, and PPE used in the coronavirus cleanup with 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.
