“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 of Smithtown 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 of Smithtown 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 Ronkonkoma area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and health and government leaders notify individuals to take necessary measures to protect themselves, one of the best ways to slow its progression is by performing deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of an EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning procedures can be utilized for institutions, commercial, and residential properties. Our coronavirus cleaning services will help reduce contamination related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Call your local PuroClean office for more information on how we can help clean your property.
Individuals that are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) are at the highest risk of spreading COVID-19 in a “person-to-person” manner. Small respiratory droplets caused by coughing or sneezing produce minuscule drops that can land on the nose or mouth or be breathed into the lungs of another person. This is most commonly how COVID-19 spreads rapidly. Therefore, it is believed that person-to-person is the most common way the disease spreads.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by coming into contact with a surface or object which has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
PuroClean will initially conduct a complete inspection of your home or office. We then make a determination on the level of containment required and discuss with you the plan of action.
First, our technicians arrive at the job site and do a quick walkthrough to ensure that the area is ready for cleaning services. Then, they map out the flow of the work to do the cleaning as efficiently as possible.
It is important to perform biohazard abatement with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained staff wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also contain the area, taking the needed steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
First, wearing proper PPE is a requirement. Our cleanup technicians wear a full-face respirator to guard against infected particles coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. They also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Our industry certified technicians use EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant products, including towelettes, with pharmaceutical ingredients that meet OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like COVID-19 and other disease-causing bacteria, viruses, tuberculosis, mold, and mildew.
Our technicians typically use these appropriate cleaning materials:
EPA-registered and hospital grade disinfectants are used during this cleaning phase. Depending on the project needs, we commonly use these methods:
Synthetic curtains, upholstery and rugs: PuroClean technicians will thoroughly clean these items manually or apply approved disinfectants for machine washing for these carpets and textiles and perform extraction where necessary.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery should be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
To disinfect clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the infected articles should be laundered per label instructions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Washing machines need to be disinfected after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather items – We can clean these materials by cleaning the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – These are to be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
HVAC system – External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers shall be cleaned with a disinfectant solution. HVAC internal duct surfaces and components need to be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC technician or NADCA certified duct cleaning professional.
It is common for the bad smell to dissipate when the infected areas are cleaned and begin to dry. However, the PuroClean technicians will make the determination if further cleaning and deodorizing is required.
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 professionally and respectfully, as if it were their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an effective procedure used to start the Smithtown coronavirus sanitization process of public areas the most effective and safe way possible. Our process uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in areas close by.
Prior to vacating a project location in which the coronavirus had contaminated, the PuroClean staff will perform a full and complete washing of all equipment, tools, and PPE that were used for the coronavirus cleanup using 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.
