Viruses are small, simply composed, and can only multiply in the living cells of animals, plants, or bacteria. Viruses are germs that are microorganisms smaller than a bacterium and do not have the ability to reproduce or grow without a living cell. Viruses attack living cells and use their chemical machinery to sustain and replicate themselves. Many common human infections as well as a number of rare diseases are caused by viruses.
Not all viral diseases are contagious, meaning they cannot be spread from person to person. Contagious viral infections can include the common cold, flu, or other respiratory infections.
Viral infections include:
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.
Virus protection and decontamination includes a risk of exposure. Due to this, it is imperative to employ reputable and dependable technicians ensuring the reduction of risk from liability due to improper cleanup efforts or the danger of spreading potentially contagious pathogens. Reach out to PuroClean, your Paramedics of Property Damage®, at (630) 477-9120, for your virus decontamination and protection work.
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.
While working with virus decontamination and protection services, COVID-19 and other respiratory or infectious diseases, biohazard, or trauma and crime scene remediation services, it is vital to persistently show extra compassion and care.

PuroClean’s RapidDefense™ is the best way to provide a fine detailed cleaning, which includes the application of EPA approved hospital-grade disinfectants in public areas.
