Have you had a sewer backup? Has an infectious illness or death rocked your home or business? Are you in need of crime scene cleanup services? PuroClean Disaster Response Services provides a full range of biohazard removal assistance, including the use of PuroClean RapidDefense™ for an Influenza or Norovirus outbreak. Biohazard cleanup requires special attention to the safety of everyone involved. The team at PuroClean Disaster Response Services will carefully contain the area, remove any items that are not salvageable, and then sanitize those that remain. If there are any lingering odors, our expert technicians will deodorize the area and restore your property to pre-loss condition.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of the incident and affected area(s). We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the action plan.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear special personal protective equipment to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe.
Hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids, is handled following OSHA regulations. It’s then sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
All affected porous material will be removed per industry standards and state regulations. All other infectious material will be safely discarded as well. For non-porous surfaces, we will dry the affected area before applying a disinfectant. After allowing this to soak, we scrub, repeating the process to disinfect the space.
Typically, odors dissipate once the biohazard is cleaned and the area sanitized. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary. If so, we use hydroxyls or ozone to eliminate the odor.
PuroClean’s RapidDefense™ is designed to clean up and protect after MRSA, Influenza, or Norovirus contamination.
Professionals have the equipment and training to clean up biohazards without further contamination safely. This will reduce the likelihood of illness spreading to others at the home or office. Call PuroClean Disaster Response Services at (919) 481-4600 and rest assured that your property is in good hands.
