Cleaning property during a biohazard cleaning includes the application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants and full deodorization of the affected space.

Included Within The Biohazard Cleanup Services

Keep in mind that the state is not responsible for cleaning up a crime scene. Once police investigators gather evidence from the scene, it is up to the property owner to seek biohazard cleaning services. A professional cleanup team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence pertaining to the crime.

BOPIM Standard

In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a standard to protect workers from the potential dangers of blood or other possibly infectious materials (BOPIM). Infectious pathogens for example are the Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and numerous others.

Approximately 5.6 million workers in healthcare and related occupations are helped by this standard. The biohazard remediation and cleaning Industry is also covered under the BOPIM standard.

The BOPIM standard also has a few requirements, as follows:

  • Proper handling, transport and disposal of hazardous medical waste materials
  • Using appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Using work practice controls
  • Conduct a Health and Safety Assessment (OSHA requirement)
  • Record keeping
  • Mandatory training
  • Specific required vaccinations

More Common Biohazard Scenarios

  • Blood and bodily fluid
  • Suicide or death
  • Crime or homicide scenes
  • Coronavirus contamination
  • Chemical hazards
  • Animal waste or remains
  • Hoarding scenes

Each and every time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials, they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following correct proper training and safety procedures are very important. This is necessary not only for their own personal safety but also for the individuals who will reside in the property after the biohazard cleanup is complete.

Does Biohazard Cleanup Require Certification?

It is not obligatory to obtain a certificate to become a biohazard technician. Although OSHA does require biohazard technicians to properly wear PPE when handling bloodborne pathogens. Also, you may want to check your local city, state, and federal regulators for any licensing requirements, laws, background checks, fingerprinting, or any other factors that may be needed to perform remediation services. For example, the state of Georgia passed a law that includes companies providing remediation services related to trauma and crime scene cleanup.

PPE is the last line of defense and helps ensure the safety of workers. PPE equipment blocks hazardous material from coming into contact with the body through the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any additional area. Although PPE differs from project to project, it should always include full-face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Furthermore, reputable restoration companies offer biohazard remediation classes for technicians. That includes learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety methods when working with biohazardous materials. Doing so reduces the risk of accidents and probable legal action against you.

The PuroClean Process of Biohazard Cleanup

  • First, the cleanup crew will identify the affected areas, conducts a health and safety assessment, and determines the magnitude of the biohazard cleanup. Once a plan is devised, remediation will take place as quickly as possible.
  • Technicians then take steps to maintain their safety and the safety of others near the cleanup site.
  • All potentially infectious materials are eradicated from the site and properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily waste, is handled in strict accordance with OSHA regulations and given to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous materials like fabric and carpeting that can’t be effectively cleaned are disposed of following industry standards and state regulations.
  • Non-porous materials are either cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants if the items appear to be salvageable, or removed and discarded if non-restorable.
  • After cleanup is finished, technicians deodorize the affected locations, and will ensure all affected areas are returned to pre-loss conditions in appearance and cleanliness. One way to guarantee that the areas have been cleaned and ready for occupancy is to have clearance testing performed by a licensed Industrial Hygienist.
  • Removal of uncleanable contaminated materials, cleaning, and use of hospital-grade disinfectants are often enough to control odors, and in some difficult situations, other means of deodorization are used to accomplish the desired air cleanliness.
