“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 Professionals 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 Professionals 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 Richmond area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak keeps growing rapidly, health and government leaders are publicly addressing the world daily, asking that everyone practice the safe means necessary to protect themselves. A very effective practice 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 specialized cleaning procedures can be beneficial for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. PuroClean’s Richmond 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 all of the services we offer.
It has been publicly announced that the spread of COVID-19 is caused by individuals who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet), through small respiratory droplets that are blown into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
The tiny droplets land in the mouths or noses of others who are nearby. It is also possible for these droplets to be inhaled into the lungs. This is why COVID-19 is believed to spread most prevalently from person-to-person.
There is a possibility that COVID-19 can be contracted when an individual physically touches a surface or object with the virus present, afterwards touches their nose or mouth. The CDC confirms that this type of spreading is highly likely.
We first will come in and provide a full assessment of your office or home. We decide on 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 effectively as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with strict attention to safety and industry and OSHA guidelines. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees out of harm’s way as well.
PPE is a requirement that PuroClean technicians follow thoroughly. While on your job performing cleaning, all technicians will wear these PPE items: A full-face respirator provides protection from splashes that may reach the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eyes. Our professionals will also wear Nitrile gloves, Biohazard protective coveralls and covers on their shoes.
Special towelettes are used that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and numerous more diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and more cleaning supplies used by our industry certified technicians are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectant products.
The typical cleaning materials used by PuroClean professionals include:
Depending on the circumstances, our professionals apply hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants using three methods.
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: Our professionals will thoroughly clean these items manually or apply appropriate disinfectants for machine cleaning for these carpets and textiles and perform extraction where necessary.
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.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by using disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Suede and Nu-buck leather garments – These should be cleaned according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleansed by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal components and surfaces of ductwork should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External duct surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
Our technicians shall make the decision whether further cleaning and deodorization will be carried out. However, typically once the infected areas are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will disappear.
We understand that a biohazard event can be stressful and sensitive 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, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense process disinfects and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative process we use in order to disinfect public places as effectively as possible.
EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant will be used to clean all cleaning implements that was used during the coronavirus cleanup. Prior to leaving the location that had been contaminated with the coronavirus we shall conduct this meticulous 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. 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.
