“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 Shreveport 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 Shreveport 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 Shreveport, LA area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
A very good way to limit the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, along with the use of EPA-registered disinfectants. This level of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. Right now, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government leaders and healthcare officials to compel the public to take every possible precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services we offer assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Get in touch with your local PuroClean office for additional information regarding how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
“Person-to-Person” has appeared to be the most widely known way COVID-19 is spread. This occurs mainly 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 anyone within range. 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 where the virus exists and then placing their hand on their own mouth, nose, or even their eyes.
PuroClean will initially conduct a complete assessment of your home or office. We then make a determination on the amount of containment required and speak to you about the plan of action.
Initially, Puroclean technicians will arrive at your location and perform a preliminary inspection to ensure the area is prepared for our cleaning services. Following this, the plan of the work is determined by our technicians, in order to do the required work as quickly as possible.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with strict attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate 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 protect them against airborne bacteria coming in contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, or eyes. The technicians also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Special towelettes are used that adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard to fight diseases like the coronavirus and other diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and other cleaning supplies used by our industry certified technicians are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.
Our technicians typically use these appropriate cleaning materials:
EPA-registered as well as hospital grade disinfectants are applied during this cleaning phase. Depending on the circumstances, we commonly use the following methods:
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then extract where applicable.
Natural fabric rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: These items are to be cleaned in exact accordance with the manufacturer’s labeled instructions.
For the disinfectant of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, the affected articles should be laundered per label instructions. NOTE: washing machines should be thoroughly cleaned after washing contaminated materials.
Tanned leather materials – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a lightly moistened cloth with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Nu-buck and suede leather material: These materials are to be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instruction.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
HVAC System: Industry guidelines should be followed for the cleaning of internal HVAC ducts surfaces and components; by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. Additionally, the outside ductwork, registers, grates, grills and surfaces are to be washed with the aid of a disinfectant solution.
Typically, once the infected area is cleaned and starts to dry, odors dissipate. However, our crew will decide 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 biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item professionally and respectfully, as if it were their own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, reduce the risk of spreading pathogens and prevent contamination.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system sanitizes 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 areas the most effective way possible.
Prior to leaving a site that was once infected with the coronavirus, our technicians will do a complete cleaning of all equipment and tools 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.
