Innovative

PuroClean RapidDefense™ is the best way to sanitize public areas. Our system helps stop the spread of pathogen-based illnesses, such as Influenza and Norovirus.

Traumatic events or accidents that have resulted in injury or death, need the services of certified biohazard remediation professionals. Our biohazard cleaning consists of the extreme cleaning and application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants and then completely deodorizing the premises. Chemical spills, blood, and human or animal remains are examples of biohazard materials that call for professional restoration.

Included Within The Biohazard Cleanup Services

It is useful to remember that the state officials are not required to clean up a crime scene. When police investigators are finished gathering evidence from the area, the responsibility of cleaning the area shifts to the property owner to employ biohazard cleaning professionals. Professional cleanup teams can arrive onsite only when the police have gathered enough evidence related to the crime.

The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (BOPIM) Standard

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

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

The BOPIM standard additionally consists of various requirements, such as:

  • 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)

Common Biohazard Situations

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

Every time abatement specialists handle potentially hazardous items, they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following correct proper training and safety procedures are crucial. This is necessary not only for their own individual safety but also for the people who will reside in the property after the biohazard remediation is complete.

Does Biohazard Cleanup Require Certification?

To work as a biohazard technician, a certificate is not required. However, biohazard technicians are strongly required to wear correct PPE when working in areas with bloodborne pathogens. The state of Georgia recently passed a law which affects any company providing remediation services related to traumatic event locations and crime scene cleaning and restoration. Therefore, you need to review and follow local city, state, and federal laws that could call for specific licensing or have certain laws in place for licensing requirements, background checks, fingerprinting or further factors that may apply to biohazard cleanup businesses.

To help ensure the safety of our technicians, PPE is used as the final barrier of defense. PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) protects the body from coming into contact with hazardous items, via the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other body parts. PPE types change with each project, but needs to always consist of cut resistant and nitrile gloves, full face guard, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Reputable remediation companies provide biohazard restoration training for workers. Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety processes for handling biohazard waste is a significant part in the training. The technician’s training greatly lessens the risk of potential lawsuits or injuries from accidents.

PuroClean Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • Upon arrival, the remediation crew will inspect and find all affected areas, conduct a health and safety inspection, and make a determination as to the scope of the biohazard project. When the crew has a plan in place, remediation begins immediately.
  • Technicians will first take measures to ensure their safety and the safety of any individuals near the affected areas.
  • Technicians then gather and dispose of all potentially infectious items from the project.
  • OSHA regulations will indicate how hazardous medical waste is handled. As an example, spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other body fluids are carefully removed and transported 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 properly 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 dispose of such items.
  • After the cleaning process, technicians will deodorize all affected areas and assure they are returned to pre-contamination cleanliness and appearance. One method that proves areas are fully cleansed and ready for occupancy is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors are normally controlled by the getting rid of uncleanable contaminated items and cleaning with hospital-grade cleaning products. However, difficult situations may require further procedures of deodorization to achieve the desired goal.

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