Biohazard cleanup is not easy, and it should not be done by someone who is untrained. A mop, bucket, and commercial cleaning product are simply not enough, and though it may appear that the area is clean, you cannot be sure that any or all biohazards were removed. Additionally, you may be exposing yourself to unnecessary risks if you try to cleanup a biohazard yourself.
For crime and trauma scenes, unattended deaths, and other tragic situations, remaining biohazards, structural damage, and odors can cause problems if not cleaned up properly. We specialize in remediating these hazards and is available 24/7 if you have biohazard cleanup needs.
What are Biohazards?
A biohazard is an organism or a byproduct that is harmful or potentially harmful to human beings. Some examples of biohazards are:
- Medical Waste
Many people think they can only encounter biohazardous materials in hospitals or other health care settings, but biohazards can exist anywhere. Crime and trauma scenes in particular can contain biohazards, and proper biohazard cleanup and disposal methods are crucial to ensure safety of current and future occupants of the affected site.
How Does Biotrauma Cleanup Biohazards?
Biotrauma is a bioremediation company that has cleaned and disinfected crime and trauma scene sites for almost 20 years. All technicians are trained in compassionately and discreetly providing effective biohazard cleanup in three steps:
- Cleaning: Traces of blood and biological materials, dirt, and chemicals are removed from the site. If personal property can’t be remediated, it becomes medical waste and is disposed of properly.
- Disinfecting: Technicians then spray surfaces with disinfectant at precise intervals. Next, the crew wipes all surfaces manually a second time before using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing, a process that is similar to that used by hospitals and food safety personnel to verify sanitation level.
- Deodorizing: Technicians use a deodorizer to eliminate any possibility of lingering odors.
If you’re facing the task of cleaning up a biohazard, don’t do it alone. Biotrauma is available 24/7, and we will send a representative to assess the site and provide a no-obligation quote for the biohazard cleanup. Our experts are trained and know how to safely remediate and disinfect the area while keeping everyone nearby safe.
