PuroClean Biohazard Cleanup Services

Biohazard Cleanup Process in Covington, LA

  1. Our process begins with a plan. We thoroughly assess the contamination and create a safe and effective biohazard cleanup and remediation plan. 
  2. All potentially infectious materials are carefully removed from the site. Hazardous medical waste is handled according to OSHA regulations, appropriately processed, and sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator. 
  3. Porous materials such as carpet and bedding are removed per industry standards and government regulations. All other non-hazardous affected materials are either removed or professionally decontaminated and sanitized. 
  4. Remaining materials such as drywall and flooring may be sealed to cover any stains from the incident, usually for cosmetic reasons.

Planning & Organization

First, 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. 

Safety as a Priority

It is vital to perform biohazard removal with particular 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. 

Medical Waste Removal

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.

Thorough Cleanup & Decontamination

All affected porous material will be removed per industry standards and state regulations. We will safely discard all other infectious material 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.

Deodorization

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