“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 Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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 Middlesex and Essex Counties area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
The coronavirus pandemic is still spreading and government leaders and health experts continue to urge citizens to follow strict and particular precautions for protection. PuroClean’s Middlesex and Essex Counties coronavirus cleaning practices help reduce COVID-19 outbreak related contamination. We are now offering deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using EPA-registered disinfectant. These cleaning practices are available for any commercial, residential, industrial and institutional customers. Get in touch with PuroClean today to find out more about our COVID-19 cleaning services and more.
“Person-to-Person” has been known to be the most common way COVID-19 is spread. This happens with individuals 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. Furthermore, these droplets can be inhaled into lungs.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can contract 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 technicians will need to determine what level of containment you will need and speak with you regarding a plan of action. This is the initial step taken when they complete a full assessment of your home or office.
Initially, PuroClean technicians will arrive at your home or business and conduct a preliminary inspection to make sure the area is prepared for our cleaning services. Afterwards the workflow is determined by PuroClean, in order to complete the project as expeditiously as possible.
It is of high importance to work with biohazard removal while also paying strict attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our trained technicians wear specific Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure your personal 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. PuroClean 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. They also wear Biohazard protective coveralls, shoe covers, and Nitrile gloves.
Special towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard to fight diseases like the coronavirus and other 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 disinfectants.
The cleaning materials our technicians normally work with include:
PuroClean uses three methods for applying disinfectants. Depending on the circumstances, technicians apply hospital grade, EPA-registered disinfectants in one of these three ways:
Synthetic rugs, carpets, curtains and upholstery: Our Technicians will clean these items manually or by machine cleaning. Appropriate disinfectants for the appropriate cleaning of the textiles and carpet will be applied for the cleaning; extraction will be done where applicable.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Important: Washing machines should always be disinfected after contaminated items are washed. For the disinfecting of clothing, linens and other personal fabrics, contaminated articles are to be laundered following instructions on every label.
Tanned leather items – We can clean these materials by wiping the surfaces with a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant solution or disinfectant towelettes.
Suede and Nu-buck leather material – These should be cleaned according to the guidelines of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleansed by applying the disinfectant solution directly onto the items.
HVAC system – HVAC internal duct surfaces and components 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.
Typically, when the affected area is cleaned and begins to dry, odors will go away. However, PuroClean technicians will determine if further deodorization is required.
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 our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses proven products approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: PuroClean RapidDefense is an innovative procedure used to start the disinfection process of public places the most effective and safe way possible. Our process uses disinfectants that help prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in areas close by.
Before PuroClean technicians vacate a property that was contaminated by the coronavirus, they will completely clean all tools, PPE, and equipment that was used during the coronavirus cleanup, using a hospital-grade, EPA-registered 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.
