Biohazardous Waste Cleanup Procedures
The term biohazard describes “any biological material (e.g. plants, animals, microorganisms, or their byproducts) that may present a potential risk to the health and wellbeing of humans, animals, or the environment.” Crime scene cleanup companies encounter large amounts of this biological matter, including blood and other body fluids, that potentially pose a health risk.
When faced with cleaning up a blood spill site, it’s important to remember that a commercial cleaning product and trash bag for disposal is not sufficient. Just because something looks clean doesn’t mean that it is clean. Even the smallest speck of blood can harbor potentially dangerous bloodborne pathogens. That’s why crime scene cleanup companies treat all sites as if they contain biohazards, and they make sure to take proper precautions when removing biohazardous waste.
