What Is A Biohazard Clean-Up?

Our job as biohazard cleaners is to assess an unsafe area and thoroughly clean, sanitize, and deodorize a site where an unnatural environmental or traumatic event has occurred. When undertaking any biohazardous job, it is quite serious since it involves anything from blood to chemicals which is why it is important to hire a company who has the proper equipment and safety gear to perform these duties properly. More importantly, it protects you from exposure from remaining biohazardous material, structural damage, or strong smells that permeate the air.

What Is Defined As A Biohazard?

Any infectious material is defined as a biohazardous organism or byproduct that will potentially cause harm to people. Because this type of matter imposes a health risk to the public, it is highly regulated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance as well as local, state, and federal agencies.  Examples of biohazards include the following.

  • Human Tissue
  • Blood Or Bloody Material
  • Medical Waste Like Needles, Infected Equipment, Or Gloves
  • Bodily Fluids Like Feces, Urine, or Vomit
  • Bacteria, Microbes, Toxins, and Mold
  • Materials That Come Into Contact With Infectious Diseases

Most people associate biohazards with those red bags in hospitals, but this type of situation can occur anywhere. In fact, most of our assignments are from crime scenes, accidental deaths, sewage backups, or vandalism. It is because of the unusual circumstances that our customers need help that we are able to ensure that we arrive with the utmost attention to safety and detail.
