A virus invades living cells and uses their chemical machinery to keep itself alive and to replicate itself. Viruses cause many common human infections and are also responsible for a number of rare diseases. They are infectious agents of small size and simple composition that can multiply only in living cells of animals, plants, or bacteria.

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.
In the time leading up to the 2020 worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, many people cleaned for appearance only. Following the pandemic, and the most recent Delta variant, cleaning has become more of a health focused necessity, first and foremost.
For your protection and the decontamination of viruses, contact PuroClean, your Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (585) 431-6060. 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.
Handling potentially hazardous materials is a significant risk to technicians every time they work with them. Therefore, adhering to the correct training and safety procedures is quite crucial. Not only is this important for their own personal safety, but it also protects those who will live and/or work inside the premises when this and other cleanup is complete.
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.
As with any type of property damage, PuroClean restoration professionals ensure that their actions are respectful to the confidentiality and sensitivity of the services being offered with all parties involved.
