From a crime scene to a drug lab, a wide variety of situations require professional biohazard cleanup. Bodily fluids like blood, animal waste, or chemical spills, pose a health risk and must be cleaned properly and safely. Biohazard cleanup crews are specially trained to work with dangerous substances and materials, and they have the proper equipment and tools to remove them. They are also experienced in working with delicate and emotionally charged situations.
What is the meaning of biohazard cleaning?
While most homeowner’s insurance policies cover the cost of biohazard remediation, it’s important to find a qualified contractor. You can ask friends, family members, or business associates for recommendations or check online reviews. Once you’ve found a company, discuss your needs with them and make sure they’re licensed and insured.
Bio-One cleanup professionals follow strict safety procedures, which includes wearing PPE. This prevents exposure to pathogens and other contaminants, ensuring the health of technicians and anyone who may occupy a contaminated space once the job is done.
Once a team has evaluated the situation, they’ll secure and block off the area from unaffected areas to contain contamination. They’ll then begin cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing the site. Then, they’ll test the scene with an ATP (adenosine triphosphate) tester to ensure that the process has completely removed all unsafe contaminants and created a safe environment. Once the scene passes the test, it’s ready for reoccupation.
