Our Approach to Suicide or Trauma Cleanup
If a physical trauma has occurred in your home or on your property – whether that be from suicide or attempted suicide, domestic violence, accident or otherwise – you should know that standard cleaning services are not sufficient.
These emergencies may confront you with blood, body fluids, and related property damage. And these facets require biohazard remediation in order to remove, clean and disinfect the area and neutralize potentially harmful pathogens. In order to provide safe and effective trauma cleanup, intensive training and licensing, along with proper equipment and its certifications are required. This is especially true in communicable disease outbreaks.
The health and safety of our clients and employees is paramount, so all possible precautions are taken during every step of the process. At Biotrauma, we follow all OSHA regulations surrounding bloodborne pathogens.
Our trauma cleanup process was designed to thoroughly remove all traces of blood, fluid and other biological materials while preventing cross-contamination. We then disinfect and deodorize using only EPA or state EPD recommended cleaners and disinfectants. Following the cleanup, we test various locations to ensure all areas previously affected by the trauma are pathogen-free. When the health, safety and security of your family is on the line, know that we never take shortcuts in returning your home to a clean and safe condition.
In fact, we maintain a refined, methodical process that allows you to focus on your emotional well-being, while trusting us to the physical labors of repair:
- Evaluate the Scene: Our initial walk through allows us to define the scope of the cleanup and conduct the industry-recommended employee safety hazard assessment.
- Prevent Cross-Contamination: Our team secures and separates the affected area of the property using industry-recommended cross-contamination protocol.
- Cleanup biohazards: All visible biological materials are removed from the area of the trauma. Then EPA- or EPD-rated cleaners and disinfectants are used to clean, disinfect and deodorize all affected surfaces.
- Confirm results: After cleanup is complete, we use an indicating solution with contaminant-specific field testing kits which shows hospital-level standards of disinfection have been met.
