PuroClean Biohazard Removal Services Include:

Biohazard Cleanup Process:

  1. Our process begins with a plan. We thoroughly assess the contamination and create a safe and effective biohazard remediation plan. 
  2. We remove all potentially infectious materials from the site. Next, our team will send all hazardous medical waste to be appropriately processed in compliance with OSHA regulations. Finally, they will send the remaining items to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator. 
  3. We remove porous materials such as carpet and bedding in accordance with industry standards and government regulations. Then we either remove all other non-hazardous affected materials or professionally decontaminate and sanitize them. 
  4. Finally, we seal the remaining materials such as drywall and flooring, usually for cosmetic reasons, to cover any stains from the incident.

Planning & Organization

To begin, as a biohazard cleanup company in Cedar Park, we provide a full assessment of the incident and the area(s) affected. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the plan of action.

For example, 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 as well. 

Medical Waste Removal

We handle hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids following OSHA regulations. Then, we send the waste to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.

Thorough Cleanup & Decontamination

All affected porous material will be removed in accordance with industry standards and state regulations. All other infectious materials will be safely discarded as well.  But, 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.

Deodorization

Typically, once the biohazard is cleaned and the area sanitized, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary. If so, we use hydroxyls or ozone to ensure the odor is gone.

RapidDefense™ is designed to clean up and protect after MRSA, Influenza, or Norovirus contamination.
