In most cases, dealing with biohazard materials means dealing with chemical spills, blood, human or animal remains. A traumatic accident that caused an injury or death are situations that call for biohazard remediation. The actual biohazard cleanup consists of cleaning, applying EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing areas where traumatic events have taken place.

Biohazard Cleanup Services Include

  • Hoarding Cleanup
  • Crime Scene Cleanup
  • Deodorization and Odor Control
  • Sewage Cleanup and Sanitation
  • Virus Decontamination and Protection
  • Blood and Bodily Fluid Remediation

After police and investigators finish gathering all the evidence from a crime scene, they are not responsible for any of the actual cleanup of the scene. When police release the scene, the responsibility is with the owner of the property to procure biohazard cleaning services. The biohazard cleaning crew can only start doing their work after police have officially released the scene.

BOPIM Standard

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put out a standard in 1991 to protect all workers from the dangers of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many others are examples of Infectious pathogens.

BOPIM helps protect about 5.6 million people in the healthcare industry and related occupations, which also includes biohazard remediation specialists. Biohazard restoration falls within the coverage of the BOPIM standard.

Also, the BOPIM standard consists of several requirements, including:

  • Record keeping
  • Mandatory training
  • Specific required vaccinations
  • 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)

More Common Biohazard Scenarios

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

Every single time that technicians need to handle potentially hazardous materials, it is performed at a significant risk. Because of this, adhering to safety procedures and the correct training is necessary. The importance of these guidelines are both for the workers and people who will later occupy the previously contaminated space. The technicians and residents rely on these safety guidelines. The safety of both technicians and residents from biohazard dangers is highly important during and after the project.

Is Certification Needed to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

Biohazard specialists are not required to get a certificate for their employment. However, biohazard technicians are required, by OSHA, to wear appropriate PPE while working with bloodborne pathogens. Furthermore, for workers to perform biohazard remediation, local, city, state and federal regulations may call for licensing requirements. Laws may be in place that call for the technicians to submit to background checks, fingerprinting, or additional actions. Georgia’s requirements are a prime example. The state passed laws that affect businesses who provide trauma and crime scene cleanup.

PPE protects the safety of employees and happens to be the last line of defense. This equipment guards the skin, eyes, mouth, nose and other body parts from being exposed to hazardous material. The extent of PPE used on each project may differ on different job sites. However, PPE should always include full face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, properly assigned waterproof coveralls as well as a respirator.

Reputable and trustworthy remediation companies train their employees to work in the biohazard restoration field. This training includes implementing OSHA’s directions for handling biohazardous waste. This training protects everyone involved: technicians, bystanders, and future occupants. Furthermore, the risk of accidents and potential lawsuits is limited greatly.

Our Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • Upon arrival, the remediation crew will inspect and find all affected locations, conduct a health and safety inspection, and make a decision as to the scope of the biohazard cleanup. When the technicians have a plan in place, remediation begins right away.
  • PuroClean will first take precautions to ensure their safety and the safety of others near the affected areas.
  • Technicians then gather and dispose of all potentially infectious items from the project.
  • OSHA regulations will dictate how hazardous medical waste is handled. For example, spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other body fluids are carefully handled and taken to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Per industry standards and state laws, technicians have to dispose of porous materials such as fabric and carpeting that can’t be adequately cleaned.
  • Hospital-grade disinfectants will be used on non-porous items that can be saved. If the items end up being non-restorable, our specialists will remove and discard such items.
  • After the cleaning procedure, technicians will deodorize the affected locations and assure they are returned to pre-contamination cleanliness and appearance. One procedure that ensures areas are totally cleansed and ready for people is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors are normally controlled by the removal of uncleanable contaminated items and cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants. However, difficult situations may require further methods of deodorization to achieve the desired goal.

Providing Biohazard Cleanup Services with Empathy

The massive sense of loss felt from property damage is not lost on PuroClean technicians. Our restoration specialists and owners make all possible efforts to be extremely empathetic to those who have experienced property damage and may be emotionally vulnerable. This special type of cleanup calls for added care and sympathy. Our technicians truly empathize with the individuals that are unfortunately experiencing loss from this traumatic situation.

The PuroClean RapidDefense™ Program

PuroClean has implemented a cleaning method that we feel is the best way to clean. The PuroClean RapidDefense™ Program consists mainly of the application of EPA approved hospital-grade disinfectants in common areas. The 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Norovirus, Influenza and many more pathogen-based germs are the goal of our RapidDefense™ Program, helping to stop the spread of such contaminants. Environmental Protection Agency-registered, safe products are used for this process for up to 90 days of protection from pathogens. Reach out to PuroClean to prevent an outbreak and help build a safe and clean environment.

Cleaning and application of hospital grade disinfectants of frequently touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to help stop the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated following cleaning, and because COVID-19 is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services cannot be guaranteed to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
